In cased you missed this wackiness from the other day…
Victor has since apologized.
“I would like to apologise to the fans, the AELTC and everyone else for my behaviour last [Friday] night at the end of my match against Daniel Brands.
“There were people in the crowd that had been insulting me since the beginning of the match. I was winning, had four match points in the third set but unfortunately I could not close it out.
“Then I got a leg injury at the end of the fourth set. I lost my control briefly in the fifth set after another insult from someone in the crowd. I should have never done that but I am human and I made a mistake.”
I’m not gonna lie. I’m a pretty competitive dude. Always have been, even as a wee one. If someone had be insulting me the entire match, I’d be pissed. If I blew match points in the third and then hurt myself, I’d probably be Marating many a racquet. And if that dude kept on insulting me? Yeah, I might do something stupid too. The “peace, I’m outta here” is a bit much (though totally hilarious).
While I do hate on bad sportsmanship, Victor has never really done anything ridiculous on court to warrant haters. Hell, he’s typically pretty emotionally bland. So I forgive you, at least. And hell, it’s kinda funny to watch.
