Viktor Troicki, a 27-year-old Serbian tennis player, had a McEnroe-esque meltdown in the second round of his Italian Open. Troicki lost, 6-1, 6-1, but that wasn’t the story. During a break point in the second set, Troicki hit a backhand that chair umpire Cedric Mourier ruled out. Troicki disagreed. Vehemently. He threatened to retire from the match, then went on like a lunatic for four more minutes. [H/T Beyond the Baseline]
Wonder what caused the fight.
Legitimate suspension, or reason to get out of the deal?
All about the leather and the strategic hand placement.
Two months of excitement!
Those moves. Hot damn.
