Deep in the fourth set, with the Roland Garros semi-final between Robin Soderling and Fernando Gonzales on a knife edge, the Chilean hotly disputed a call, for what seemed like minutes, including berating both umpire and line judge, who was also wearing glasses which strangely made it more amusing ! At the conclusion, Gonzales made it very clear what he fought of the decision by sitting on court and removing the mark with his backside !

It was funny, but it did his opponent, who went on to lose the next two games and the set no favours and how can it go unpunished when players are pulled up for throwing a racquet, which is an instant and unpremeditated reaction. Somehow that just seems wrong.

I will be back shortly with a couple of brief previews for today's football.
