The French are idiots. I don't know why more Americans don't boo foreign players at the U.S. Open.

The booing started cos Serena cheered when her let cord went over, and she pumped her fist. It was wrong though, I but it was only a fraction of the audience it wasent like it was everyone.

Maybe because she was quite aggressive, like when she hit a ball that touches the net and falls dead on Maria's half, she shouted "Yes" quite loudly.

Or because she influenced some line calls? Like at 5-4 third set advantage Kirilenko, Maria hit a deep backhand that just touches the line (you can see it turn white in the slow motion) but Serena immediately raises her finger to influence the line judge who calls it out.

Anyway the booing was out of line but I guess it will never be a lovestory between Serena and Paris....

And she lifted her finger to say that one of Marias backhand was out, and was working as a judge.
What a horrible bitch.

edit. Apparently some people don't get the fact, that I was beeing sarcastic saying Serena is a horrible bitch. That's the point of

Kim Clijsters
