ATP should ban him for a month/s to protect the integrity of umpires. You just can't have that sort of abuse when you are doing your job.A ban is not going to reform his behaviour. It will just amplify his victim complex.
On thise. Heck, the pressure the big 3 put on the umpires to do what they want them to do sickens me. If you don't, then you never get to umpire one of their matches again. That should not happen. All of this is not right and it has to stop.
Bailed after losing the first set. I'm surprised to be sitting here.So Bernie defending winning Chengdu this week.
Has to go through qualifiers and has Istomin first up.
Pretty stiff you don't get a WC for the tournament you won the year before, particularly when China are not exactly known for men's tennis players.
Bernie has 525 ranking points and is currently world 109.
250 of those points from Chengdu.
If he fails to qualify he will tumble to 184 in the world.
He hasn't played since retiring in Cincy, fair to say he is massively in the poop.
