    Question Tut tut tut, Temper Temper from Robertson...

    My god... i could not believe Robertson felt so much anger in the XD finals of the Singapore Open 2006. Look at game three when the point 14-13 goes to Indonesia... I heard him shout. "NO! YOU F****N' B***H (name given to a female dog)"...

    Why does he sometimes feel so much rage ? Its amazing when i see the change from when he's being interviewed by the camera and then when he sets into his game, his mood completely changes... Is this why he sometimes makes mistakes or was this a one off occasion, perhaps personal issues got in the way ?

    He is temperamental and can get hot tempered on court. And it usually affected his performance. He doesn't seem to make good use of his temper like Michael Jordan.

    maybe that's his way of showing his 'passion' for the game....

    for past 2 aviva open when I watch nathan/emms play and whenever he or emms was caught unaware by a flick serve, he will always question the service judge and claim its a service fault.... he has no sportmanship at all

    was he shouting that at his partner ? his opponent ? or just in the air ?
    can't he get an official warning for that or something, if the umpire decided to step in ?

    I think the umpire in SO is not as strict as those in TC.
    They don't even force the players to carry on with the game when the players are wasting time wondering around.

    I agree, the doubles quater final with MAS vs DEN, was way out of order. I didn't like that umpire, he took it too seriously, lol i never knew yellow/red cards existed for badminton!
