The Queens club final last night ended in controversy as Nalbandian was defaulted for unsportsmanlike conduct after kicking an advertising sign into a linesman, causing a nasty leg gash on the linesman, and the immediate dismissal of Nalbandian.

For the record, Marin Cilic was the winner, with the score 6-7, 4-3 when Nalbandian lost the plot.

I couldn't believe it when he blamed it on frustration due to scheduling, or rules (or whatever he was trying to say),etc ... and then received an ovation from the audience. Since when has there ever been a good enough excuse to act like this guy did?
