Being s Serb and huge tennis fan, I was disgusted by the primitive actions of Serbian and Croat thugs who decided to "square off" at the Australian Open.

What the hell were they thinking, gees... we get along better here in former Yugoslavia then they do tens of thousands of kilometers away. And the funniest thing... they are all actually Australian, born and bread there, most don't even speak their mother-tongue anymore...

Chatted to a Croat friend of mine from Zagreb yesterday, he was disgusted as well, actually people from both countries are in disbelief....

Morons!

Tennis brawl 'a disgrace'

Melbourne - Police flooded the Australian Open on Tuesday to prevent further clashes between Serb and Croat fans as the media condemned the ethnic violence that marred day one.

"A Disgrace", the Melbourne Herald-Sun said on its front page beneath photographs of rival fans in national colours kicking each other and swinging flagpoles as weapons.

Police ejected 150 people on Monday after the melee.

Fans entering the venue had to pass through metal detectors as security staff searched for weapons amid threats from some of those thrown out on Monday to return for more confrontation with their rivals.

"We'll bring shanks and stab every one of them," a Serb told the Melbourne Age newspaper, while a Croat admitted: "I'm just here for the Croats, not really to support tennis."

Rising Serbian star Ana Ivanovic said she and other players were shocked at the violence in a country she considers her favourite on the tour.

Ivanovic said Serb and Croat players got on well, echoing compatriot Jelena Jankovic, who said Monday that Melbourne was the only place she had seen tennis fans acting on the ancient Balkan rivalry.

Wow. A brawl at a tennis match. At least they didn't have to deal with any of those croquet hooligans or badminton thugs.

You'll bring shanks? Pussies. If you are going to riot, do it right. Bring knives, machetti's, flares, blood and urine bombs and an excuse to go off for even the most ridiculous thing.

Signed, Soccer Fan

That sign off is probably not too far off the mark as these are the sort of morons (in fact most likely the same ones) that ruined Australian Soccer for so long and one reason why the "new" A League deliberately turned away from ethic based teams (which previously dominated any National Soccer League) and encouraged "City" based teams.
