Below is a clip from the Nielsen Tennis Pro Championship, better known as the Winnetka Challenger. Given this event is held "intermittently" per its Wikipedia page and the listed prize money is only $50,000, I'm guessing this isn't exactly a must see event for tennis diehards. But thankfully it's enough of a draw where there is some television coverage which allows us to relive this must see clip.
For a sub 2 minute video, there is a lot of good stuff here including:
- A 20 second rally at a critical part of that match that abruptly ends in some controversy.
- Great inadvertent foreshadowing with "Oh wow", "Oh no", and "Oh wow" uttered by the announcers as if they know what's coming next.
- A very brief and oddly calm exchange with the chair umpire that ends in Bogomolov retiring from the match AND shaking his hand thanking him.
- An exit that includes a now shirtless Bogomolov gathering his equipment efficiently, congratulating his bewildered opponent (1:05 in the video), and of course giving the chair umpire a parting "Go fuck yourself".
- The perfect summary line of "I've been watching tennis for 22 years and I don't think I've ever seen that particular sequence of events ever occur."
