When you’re ranked 101st, you’ve got to kick, crawl, and break out your iPhone to get to the top…
In his first-round loss to Richard Gasquet, Sergiy Stakhovsky had a beef about a call against him during the match.
Yardbarker reports when a ball was ruled out, Stakhovsky was adamant that it was in. He took to twitter for the public’s opinion.
How? Well, he tweeted the location of the mark in the clay the ball made to his 10,000 followers…during the match. He tweeted:
“Well..here what you asked for … pic.twitter.com/I5H6WB3tHx”
In regards to going “all iPhone” at the French Open he said, “It’s spontaneous. It’s never thought through.”
Larry Brown sports reported he also broke out the iPhone in Munich on another call he claimed was bad.
There, just as in France, the umpire’s call stood. Maybe he should focus on winning the matches instead of crying about every other call made.
Other than losing a little bit of money, the event makes Stakhovsky look like a possible trouble maker on the court, if not a whiner.
Crying at that level just makes you look bad, and a ranking of 101 doesn’t help your case much either.
