2013 Tennis Tirade For The Ages
Serbian Viktor Troicki lost his second round match at the Italian Open, 6-1 and 6-1, but before doing so, he went on an classic 4-minute rant over what he believed to be a missed call by the referee.
The play in question occurred when Troicki hit a ball that was originally ruled in, but was overturned by the referee. Troiki then asked the ref to go check the mark, however, the ref didn’t agree with Troicki and the argument and rant ensued.
Troicki looked at the same mark and believed it was in. He then accused the ref of refusing to overturn the call because it would be admitting that he made a mistake by overruling the original call.
From there, Troicki went over to a camera man with the Tennis Channel and personally escorted him over to the mark in question and the rant continued.
