    I have not been able to run properly since one knee operation thirty years ago. Some footballers do it though.

    I think you need to actually read the article closely before commenting. Zverev and his doubles partner had just lost the doubles match when he attacked the umpires chair.

    So he was not booted from the tournament. He was already eliminated and then attacked the umpires chair. A very important difference. Therefore, the umpire did not take any action against ie booted him from the tournament.

    Whilst there are calls to 'take action against him' in the last ten years or so, at least, tennis has been going down the path of either ignoring bad behaviour, or rewarding it. See the love affair Tennis Australia is having now with the Special K's behaviour at the Australian Open now that they can see cash coming in from a tv deal.

    It is highly doubtful that the tennis associations will do anything meaningful about this.

    Zverev was booted from the singles which he was still playing. His would be opponent in the round of 16 won by walkover.

    He was booted as he was still in the singles event ...but was kicked out. Now his rd2 opponent in the singles event progresses by walkover.

    You are correct. I just checked the tournament results. Thank you for the correction.

    Jiri Vesely beats Djokovic in Dubai, and the latter also loses his world #1 spot.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Medvedev is #1 now. Who will be his greatest challenger this year? Rafa? or will Novak rebounce...by vaccinating to start with?
