Angry Londoner Charles Sharpes (above right) launched a Twitter broadside on Malaysian world number 65 Muhamed Asyraf Azan minutes after their PSA Indian Summer first round epic which lasted a punishing two hours and 12 minutes.
Qualifier Sharpes, 21, crashed out of the $40,000 dollar event in St. Paul, Minnesota USA after losing the crucial fifth game 17-15 and within minutes posted on Twitter: ‘Losing hurts…but losing to a complete and utter nobhead really hurts’.
Feisty stuff from the Tottenham football fan (ranked world 62) who can probably expect a yellow card from PSA bosses who are sure to request details of the high-octane encounter.
Afterwards, Azan admitted: ‘I was so rusty today that I tried to win every point just to get points, no matter the situation. He was still keeping up with me. His movement is better than me today ? I was lucky.’
