Thoughts? Seemed a fair enough decision. Only similar thing a can remember is Nalbandian for kicking the linesman/advertising stand
The rules are the rules. 100% he had to be defaulted. There is no grey area here. It’s not like AFL, where he would have a lettuce leaf style punishment. Tennis has standards and integrity.
It’s just a shame, as he was probably going to win the tournament in a canter. There aren’t many tennis tournaments around at the moment and age may prevent him from breaking records he might otherwise have done.

Clippers blew a 3-1 lead. Absolutely shocked, had them as champs all year.

Really like the other three teams left (even though Celtics fans are annoying af), they play hard and they are really fun to watch but surely it’s LeBron’s and the Lakers to lose now.

Celtics heat is going to be a fun series. Both high energy.

Agreed, especially if game one is anything to go by.

Whos your tip? Would be surprised if it doesn’t go to at least 6, expecting another game 7 though. Think I’m picking the Celtics just but it’s so even. Dragic playing like its 2017 has taken Heat to another level.

I originally picked the Celts to win the series as I think Tatum is the best player in the series and that usually determines the outcome. Heat have been so good though and such even team performances. They've been a bit of a surprise packet so far, so who knows. They could easily keep it going.
Heat have no real leaks on the defensive end, but on the other side I feel like Walker is going to get abused more and more as the series goes on. He's not doing enough on the offensive end to offset that currently.
Also going for the Heat, Smart may have 1 more offensive game like that in the series, maybe. I wouldn't be counting on it though, it was probably a one off.
Robinson was poor and should bounce back.
A lot in Heat's favour IMO.

Even though Clips cost me $200 by losing, I'm glad they're out. Just a sh*t stain team. Full of wannabe thug flogs. Maybe try actually winning something before carrying on like you're world champs. Doc didn't adjust at all in that series. Harrell had to be off the floor. I feel a bit for Leonard cos I think he was a bit injured and he seems to be the only one that has any humility on that team but apart from that, see ya flogs.

I've liked the Celtics for a fair chunk of the regular season - pre bubble, I think they get it done, but can see it going to 7.
Lakers must be rubbing their hands together.

Born in 92 so I’m too young to have seen Dean Jones other than old cricket highlights.

So sad, only 59! Was so shocked

Feel for Brett Lee too. What an awful situation for him. Hope he has support around him

Was a mad cricket fan in the late 80's early 90's at Deano's peak.

The days when ODI attracted 80,000. Seems like a long time ago tonight

Shocked.
