Russian Triumph

It has to be said that the Ruskies don't half produce smashing tennis-players (is there a pun there?). I watched most of the all-Russian match this afternoon between Sharapova and Kudryavtseva. It was wonderful to see the young Russian girl beating the number three seed despite unsportsmanlike behaviour - relentless and aggressive screaming and bawling - from her opponent.

The international tennis federation ought to stamp down hard on such misbehaviour by a "three-strikes-and-you're-out " type of rule; it's intolerable for spectators and players alike.
