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]
