It wouldn’t be Wimbledon without a tantrum, would it?

Thankfully, Viktor Troicki delivered a pretty epic one this afternoon as he stared down the barrel of a five-set defeat.

“No way, look at it. You’re terrible, the worst umpire ever in the world. Did you see the ball? You’re so bad.”

Moments later, unsurprisingly, he was beaten.

On The Record

At the county level you have to do (it) but I think it’s gone too far in club football.

And it’s very hard for a club footballer to enjoy his football with the professionalism of the game now( at club level). Is it a bit much? I think it is at club level, to be doing that sort of preparation and analysis at club level is just too much. The problem is that every year the bar is raised and you have to be able to match that or you won’t be winning.”

Kerry captain Bryan Sheehan spoke to Fintan O’Toole about the enjoyment going out of club football.

The Fixture List

  • Attention turns to Lille on Friday night where Wales take on Belgium in the second Euro 2016 qualifier. Kick-off is at 8pm.
  • There’s also SSE Airtricity League action as Derry City host Dundalk at the Brandywell with a 7.45 start.   

Showbiz, baby!

Feel good after your work out? Well, here’s the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison taking in some beach volleyball with his team-mates.

And yes, that is a huge medicine ball.
