I've just seen on the news (I wasn't following the match, only once in a while because I was getting depressed ;))

The old man said:

"No estás en condiciones ni de jugar a la canasta"

It would be more or less (better translation, please!): you can't even play basket....


Well, there are people like this out there, It was sad to see Arantxa crying.

¡¡VAMOS ARANTXA!!

¡¡VAMOS ESPAÑA!!

BTW did either of you see the presentation, how did the spanish team look, esp ASV? was she crying after the match? The crowd?

Canasta?

Maybe the man was meaning the card games, trying to tell that Arantxa can not play neither seated on a table a card game.

Disgusting, poor Arantxa, not fair.

Pure matter, after that the crowd was a mess, everyone wa sshouting to that place where the man was seated as most of them didnt know who he was. and when they knew it they wanted the mant o leave the stadium, and everyone was shouting at him.

@anabel:

I've just read both versions, both things were said, that of the canasta and that of the Canarian (on TV they only said the first version, and wrote down what the man had said, and you could really understand that!!) ;)

Here you can check that I'm not deaf! ;):

La jugadora eslovaca dominaba por 6-0 y 2-0 el encuentro cuando un aficionado, «militar de alta graduación, peninsular y retirado», según una fuente del Palacio de Congresos de Maspalomas, recriminó a la catalana desde las gradas: «si no estás en condiciones de jugar, deja a la canaria», refiriéndose a Magui Serna.

También se escuchó otra fase desde el graderío: «No estás ni para jugar a la canasta», refiriéndose a la jugadora española.

Arantxa comenzó a llorar y se tapó el rostro con el cuello de su camiseta para intentar disimular su disgusto. De inmediato todo el público se separó del aficionado en cuestión, le invitó a marcharse de la cancha increpándole, a lo que él se negó despectivamente.

I feel so bad for her. Like, I mean I would like to see that man get his ass on court and play, he has no idea how hard it is.

Poor Arantxa, she knows she is a great player and I hope she can see that.
