Feliciano Lopez Rips ATP Player Rep Justin Gimelstob on Twitter
If you watch enough tennis in the U.S. you know that Justin Gimelstob is good friends with Andy Roddick. Today at Wimbledon, Gimelstob got into some hot water by saying that Lopez spends too much time looking in the mirror, and not enough on the practice courts.
Lopez caught wind of the Gimelstob’s comments and wasn’t amused.
“Its funny when people like justin gimelstob talks bullshit without knowing me at all.he did not learn what respect means as a kid..” Lopez tweeted.
Lopez got the last laugh, however. The lefty whipped Gimelstob’s friend Andy Roddick 76, 76, 64 to advance to the fourth round.
“It’s definitely great win for me,” said Lopez. “I beat a couple of great players at Wimbledon in the last 10 years. But to beat Andy in this court is very special.”
In a humoruous side note, Andy Murray’s mom, Judy, calls the fashionable Lopez “Deli-ciano”.
UPDATE: Gimelstob has responded with his own tweets to Feliciano: “I’m very sorry, my comments were taken completely out of context, I have complete respect for you, on and off the court … CONGRATS on a GREAT match today, you played amazing, good luck in the 4rth round”
