If yes, under what circumstances was it? I am just curious.

I haven't but if i was at a Vera Zvonerava match,i'd boo her if she was crying(very possible she would be) and tell her to grow up.

I'd like to think so but I just don't know. Do you think I am asking an inappropiate question?

yeah... patty in Antwerp She was soo pissed off by her loss in the semi's against Justine (two years ago)..and she raised her midfinger to the audience.

But Patty is one of my favourite players, but that was just something she didn't have to do

lol, did she raise her middle finger? I don't remember lol I don't remember if I took part in the boo-ing either?

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

I have - and I love tennis. Doesn't mean I love it when players are complete twats.

I didn't boo, but was making loud disapproving noises along with many others at conchita at eastbourne last year when she was abusing one of the ball kids, completely embarassing the kid for no reason at all. Can't remember which round it was.

No different to if someone's harassing someone on the street.

Nope, never. I did get a dirty look from Aniko Kapro's dad for clapping at Molik's winner at a tourney. He was sitting next to me. After that I kept my hands to myself.

* I don't clap/cheer for double faults or errors! That's a pet peeve of mine.

I never really did it, because it is very rude for the players... But I was very close to boo Maureen Drake at the Challenge Bell in Quebec City last year against Milagros Sequera. Her attitude was just making me angry ... Even if she's Canadian, I was feeling like doing it but I just didn't...by respect.
