Michael Llodra defeated Ernests Gulbis 6-3, 5-7, 7-6 on Friday, but it might have been his comments during the match that will create more of a stir.
According to tweets from Tom Tebbutt, a former columnist for Toronto’s Globe and Mail, caught something Llodra said to a Gulbis supporter.
“Sat very first row – dead centre behind the court for Llodra – Gulbis – heard a lot. Deplorable behaviour by Llodra – read next tweet.”
“ML smacked ball out of court, threw racquet, called Gulbis supporter in crowd a “f–king Chinese.” I confirmed later with brother of woman.”
It will be interesting to see if anything is done against Llodra.
