Nalbandian's 'Cantona' moment costs him final
There were dramatic scenes at Queen's Club as finalist David Nalbandian was defaulted for unsportsmanlike behaviour.
Nalbandian, a former Wimbledon finalist, missed a shot running out wide. Frustrated, he kicked the advertising hoarding which flew straight into the line judge's leg. The judge was badly hurt with a deep cut to his shin, and the umpirte had no option but to default the Argeninian, who was leading Marin Cilic by a set at the time.
Amid booing and jeering Nalbandian seemed to take umbridge with the ATP for making the players play on wet courts - on the driest day of the tournament.
Twitter was quick to repond.
Coral@Coral: 'Here is the Nalbandian kick! Incredible stuff! http://bit.ly/N5wsv3', while Sky Bet@SkyBet added: 'Why was Nalbandian disqualified you ask? Have a gander at this.. Ouch! http://ow.ly/bDcgi'
Richard Osley@RichardOsley tried to see the fans' side: 'Queen's tennis fans booing and moaning, but they'll love telling how they were there the day Nalbandian battered a line judge.'
And of course there's always one joker: Mark Robinson@robboma3: 'BREAKING: Tony Pulis bids £8m for David Nalbandian.'
