Second Serve


It was the ultimate brush-off. After a heated five-set battle that featured a war of words in the fifth set, France’s Laurent Lokoli refuses to shake the hand of Slovakia’s Martin Klizan.

He was angry at Klizan for celebrating after Lokoli double-faulted a game away at 2-4 in the fifth set. The two had words at their chairs before completing the match.

Klizan won, 7-6(4), 6-4, 3-6, 0-6, 6-4, and will face either Andy Murray or Andrey Kuznetsova in the second round.

We're not sure what Lokoli has to say about the incident, but we have learned that Klizan has no comment.
