Czech Mate

Seventh-seeded Tomas Berdych may have been booed by fans for refusing to shake hands after his contentious fourth- round victory over No. 10 Nicolas Almagro on Sunday. (Almagro hit him so hard with a ball that he fell to the ground, but Tomas was convinced the ball struck him in the face and did not accept his apology.) But the big Czech looks like he doesn't have a care in the world today, enjoying a day at the beach having advanced to a quarterfinal showdown with Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open, his second year in a row advancing to the final eight.

This is the guy who got booed for several minutes because he refused to shake his opponent's hand.

The ugly on the inside of this douchebag is eclipsing any pretty on the outside. Bad sportsmanship shouldn't be celebrated. You should remove this idiots picture.

He had his reasons: “I think when you have a point and someone wants to hit you straight to your face, I don’t see this as a nice moment,” Berdych said during the interview, struggling to be heard over the noise from the crowd.

He's nasty and this "incident" is the most interesting thing he's ever done.

He's a big baby, refusing to shake Almagro's hand after a perfectly legitimate return.

Funny thing is for anyone who watches tennis regularly, you'll know that Berdych isn't that big of a douche and Almagro is actually the one with the famed bad attitude
