Do you dissappointed with Justine?

Some of posters said Justine is no sportmanships, she's cheater, she's faker etc. I just want to know the opinion from Justine fans, who i can meet easily here, please explain to me the reason of ur opinion.

Mine is:
I think Justine should explain to the umpire that she was exactly raise her hand up, but she keep quite and didn't say anything.
Honestly i lose a little respect to her, but i hope i can forget this nasty thing and take the respect back.
If Justine wins the title, i dont really happy because i think the title is full of controversion. If Justine lost to Kim, I wont be sad. Maybe Justine doesnt deserve it this year. Maybe next year....

Well I don't give a damn. The 'respect' Serena maybe deserves there well why should she give it? Serena is not giving any credit to other players, incl Justine. At that level of tennis thre are worser things that happend. Several old players said that it wasn't a big deal on court and that the Sisters already did things that were worse. The whole thing is blown up out of it's popotion and that only because some people can't live with the loss of their favo.

Imo we can't be sure what happend exactly. I saw the situation again yesterday and it was possible that Serena did saw Justine raise her hand in time but choosed to serve anyway and if the serve went in Serena wouldn't give Justine another chance probably.

Last but not least it was the umpire who had to make a deciscion.

It was in the heat of a though battle, no time to give presents like that. I'm not able to know what happend and I'll give Justine the advantage after hearing her version.

Of course not, Justine won because she was the better player. Serena hit some silly drop shots, made a bit more errors and lost. The hand thingy incident (which is sooooo overrated ) didn't change the outcome of the match.

Justine won. That's what's in the tennis history books

I didn't lose respect, I'm a little disappointed that she didn't say anything. But yeah, in fact, she didn't do anything wrong. She didn't do anything at all.

She deserves the win 100%. Only some Williams fans and some neutral fans are blowing this incident up. Serena said it herself: "I'm not mad, just disappointed". So if even she isn't mad, why would others be?
