    I love being at a live match, cuz while rambunctious, most everyone applauds a well won point. I can’t fathom boo-ing player ( although many do for behaviour, time outs, late challenges, etc). What gives?

    I always read what you write and I like a lot, but this time I have to comment.
    I completely disagree about the behavior of the Brazilian fans during some Bellucci’s matches, but call them with adjective like “boisterous” is an exaggeration, and also having to read things like ” Brazilian crowd goes apeshit “, makes me sad..

    Oh My Gosh, the crowd at this match. Never heard anything like it before. Can’t wait to see what happens in Brazil in 2016. Janowicz is such a character on the court, tennis needs him.

    Wow but the Brazillian crowd needs to learn how to behave at tennis matches. Totally unacceptable I think. Any time a crowd cheers on a double fault and a player off the court, that’s never good.

    I don’t remember the crowd being this bad when Bellucci played Federer though? Umpire as well, Nouni sucked today.

    Felt for Janowicz, dealing with that crowd must’ve been horrendous. Can’t wait to see post match interviews for both. The handshake reflected what the match was.

    I think ( I think) one of the commentators on Sky said he knew a guy who had brought 6000 Brazilians to Maimi to watch the tennis. ( could’ve been twitter, but I think Sky?)

  6. Tennis Hero and Tennis Troll of the Month for March 2013

    […] a tough decision. Which was a bigger troll at the Miami Masters, the Paire/Llodra kerfuffle or the Brazilian fans’ unruly behavior during the Bellucci/Janowicz match? Both came early in the tournament and both left us shaking our […]
