Sports Outbursts & Temper Tantrums

Jeff Tarango

Tennis player Jeff Tarango became famous for his outburst in 1995 at Wimbledon. He was frustrated with umpire Bruno Rebeuh who ruled against him several times during the match. He refused to continue the match and the crowd began to heckle him. Tarango told the crowd to “shut up,” and then proceeded to yell at the umpire. Tarango then refused to play, packed up his rackets, and stormed off the court. The fight wasn't over though. Tarango’s wife entered the fray and slapped Rebeuh twice in the face. Tarango was fined heavily and banned from the next two Grand Slam tournaments.
