Nalbandian injures linesman, disqualified at Queen’s

Nalbandian injures line judge, disqualified at Queen's

Queen’s final today: Nalbandian up a set, smashes a panel in front of Andrew McDougall’s seat, causing his leg to bleed heavily. Nalbandian received a code violation for unsportsmanlike behaviour, the chair umpire decided to end the match, and awarded Cilic the match and the tournament.

Nalbandian “apologized” but blamed the ATP and insisted he shouldn’t have been disqualified:

There is a lot of rules, and sometimes they (ATP officials) don’t do anything. The rule book is very big and I can tell you that the ATP do a lot of mistakes to the players and nothing happens

Even worst than the worst of McEnroe. What an asshole.

In the other men’s final played today, veteran Tommy Haas stunned Roger Federer in Halle. It’s Haas 13th career title, its first since 2009, when he beat Novak Djokovic in the final of the Gerry Weber Open in Halle.
