Russian Mikhail Youzhny felt the need to express his emotions to the crowd watching him at the French Open on Saturday.

Trailing to Spain’s David Ferrer 0-6, 0-2 in a Rd 3 tie, Youzhny had just won his first game when he traced with his foot inside the baseline the (misspelled) word “sorri”. That brought a round of applause and encouragement from the fans. Youzhny lost 6-0, 6-2, 6-2.
