Smile Look @ This Itch

Hey all,

Speaking about what some players say about another during a match or after - does anyone remember hearing this remark by Serena? It really was a classic one. Sweet and nice = NO! But classic? 'ell Yeah!

During Serena's match against Els Callens - @ Wimby two years or so ago - Serena said "Look @ this *itch"! This was when Els was keeping the pressure on and playing great. LOL! Anyone remember that? Has this topic eva been discussed?

LOL @ Martina N.. She asked "What did she say?" She heard it - I'd bet.

Was I disappointed in Serena? Yes I was, indeed. But life goes on - and being a fan of a person I'll neva meet - what does my opinion matter really?

Did anyone catch that comment by Serena?

Heh. You won't get far posting SANE, SENSIBLE things here GogoGirl

I don't think I'd be disappointed in any opponent for saying that, or even for a spot of trash talking. It adds an extra frisson of excitement to the game... it's not the most gracious action ever, but whatever.

That match was really good... I remember it well. Els had Serena all tied up in knots.

Are you kidding? Did we discuss it? Ad naseum.... for days....

Some people feel she called her opponent bitch ...

some people felt she called her self bitch ...

some people wondered how you could read her lips at all

Here's the difference...we did not hear Serena say anything we all speculated what Serena said based on what the announcers and us 'read' on her lips..Elena on the other hand said it plain english...

Good try though...

Smile I'm Just A Nobody Fan - (Yet I Am Somebody To Many)

All,

sartrista7 - LOL! My number is 7 btw - so you got a good number.

I mean - I'm a fan. We all are fans of some. I forgave Serena quickly for that comment - although I didn't really appreciate it. Does she care that I was a little put off by her comment? I would have felt the same no matter the color of the person making that kind of comment/remark/trash-talkin'/mistake/boo-boo/diss - and so on. But again - life keeps ticking - and my little 'ole opinions don't amount to a hill of corn flakes to Serena. And btw - who am I to forgive anybody - that truly never did me any real harm and never will?

Smile Loud & Clear

Hey Rocketta. How you be?

I heard what I heard from Serena's lips - loud and clear.

Gogo girl I disagree that it is set in stone that Serena said to her opponent what you claim she said. I remember that match and there was quite a debate as to the exact words that were muttered by Serena and if they were said at her opponent or not. I also think you're thinking of the Australian Open when Serena played very tense the entire tournament. I'm still not finding the correlation between heat of the battle mutterings and calling your opponent a cheat in an interview after the match is over but maybe I'm just not getting your point?

There you go again with more sense! The way some people have been acting here today... you'd think Elena D had put them out of a job, stolen their life savings and killed their families

Maybe I don't care as much because both Lena and Venus are two of my faves... but you know, putting myself in her shoes, I see why Lena could have been suspicious, even if she was wrong. I hope she and Vee work it out off court... I highly doubt either of them take it as seriously as anyone here.

Rocketta, I thought that match which was endlessly dissected was the Loit match at the AO? Though I'm never on WTAWorld much during Wimbledon anyway.

Smile I Heard That

Hey Rocketta.

So we'll just agree to disagree then. No harm - no foul. I know what I heard. I know not what someone else heard or heard not. I heard that.

I be just fine, thanks..

I don't remember that remark but I'll take your word for it that she said it....

I don't think the two situations are the same and if Loit's fans had negative feelings towards Serena over that I wouldn't hold it against them I would understand actually. I would be offended if I was them and heard that. As I would've been if I heard someone do that to Serena.

your probably right about the AO match. That's probably the one I'm thinking of.

I don't think its that big of a deal. My only issue is with the people who say well she was still mad. Please lets be honest. Elena was being a B...cause she wanted to be. She has a history of being one when it comes to girls named Williams. She does it cause she thinks she can and that's what people want to hear. It would've been one thing had she lost the match but really she won so what's she upset about?
