I am a tough dude, but good sportsmanship moves me to tears, every freaking time.

Posted by tennisplanet on June 5, 2007

It happened again yesterday in the match between Nadal and Hewitt.

Here you have the most ferocious competitors in the sport, going at each other as two determined boxers, unwilling to give even an inch to the other. Everyone on the tour knows, if you need a point from them, you have to wrest it by pulling it out from their throat. Nothing will be given gratis.

And then it happened. I think it was Nadal’s serve that was called out, with Hewitt trailing with one set down and a break in the second. Nadal turned to get ready for the next point without contesting the call.

Hewitt stepped forward, with one leg in the grave, to the mark on the court and called it in. Point was awarded to Nadal. Nadal raised his hand to acknowledge the favor.

Can you freaking believe that????? Sharapova are you reading this?

If you are not moved by this, it’s not because you are tough. It’s because you are FREAKING DEAD, even though you have a pulse.

Are you freaking kidding me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
