David Nalbandian Disqualified from Tennis Tournament for Kicking Sign at Line Judge (VIDEO)
David Nalbandian was kicked out of a tennis tournament for kicking a sign at a line judge.
“David Nalbandian had been kicking aside everything in his path this past week, en route to a spot in the finals at the Queen’s Club tournament. And the kicking would continue during his finals match against Marin Cilic on Sunday, although, this time it wouldn’t earn the Argentine a victory. Instead, it would cost him one.
After winning the opening set, 7-6, Nalbandian began to grow increasingly frustrated during the second set, as he trailed 3-4. And after losing yet another point, he simply couldn’t contain his anger any longer, taking it out on a courtside sign. Unfortunately, there was a line judge seated directly behind that courtside sign, resulting in a bloody shin for the innocent official, and a disqualification for Nalbandian.” story is courtesy of totalprosports.com.
This video is insane, check it out after the jump.
What kind of an idiot kicks a sign at an old man? It’s hard to imagine Nalbandian didn’t see the man sitting there, he’s literally directly in front of him. The old man couldn’t have possibly made himself any more visible.
Gotta love how tennis is such a gentleman’s game. In any other sport this would have just been strongly frowned upon, but in tennis? Disqualified…
