Viktor Troicki Made Even Gulbis Jealous With This Meltdown Today In Rome [Video]

Viktor Troicki may have lost the match to Ernests Gulbis but he outdid any on-court meltdown the explosive Latvian’s ever had with this epic tirade.

After dropping the first set to Gulbis, Troicki went into major dispute with chair umpire Cedric Maurier over a ball spot on the clay on the 30-40 point.

“Come on, you know your wrong,” wailed Troicki at Maurier’s overrule against him at 30-40. “There is no space, you don’t want to correct yourself… There is no chance it’s out. From space you can see it clear.

“I will retire, I will retire, seriously. I want a supervisor… You are 100% wrong, I wouldn’t make a show out of this.”

Yet the Serb continued to make a show of it.

In an unprecedented move, an irate Troicki then proceeded to take one of the TV cameras to show the world the ball mark in question. At that point the umpire had had enough, calling a time violation on Troicki.

The 4-minute meltdown didn’t help Troicki any in the second set either. Gulbis went on to win the second set by the same score he won the first, 61.

the_mind_reels Says:

Two things:

(1) I love how Gulbis is just sitting with his legs crossed in his chair the entire time this is happening.

(2) It would have been amazing if Gulbis, upon changing sides, had looked at the mark and gestured that it was, in fact, in.


Ronald Gaines Says:

I think it would be a good idea to have the hawk-eye system on clay courts as well as hard courts to avoid future confrontations.


El Flaco Says:

You don’t hear the crowd clap very often in the middle of a dispute like that.
