Is this right?!

Maria Sharapova just broke Daniela again in the second-set with the help of a let-cord. She didnīt even apologize for it!! No, she pumped her fist even harder...

I remember how when Serena won a point against Maria K at the French in the same manner and didnīt apologize right away that there was a huge outcry...

Just waiting for the same outcry now.

Always bet on black!

I have mixed feelings about players who do that... I'm torn between liking their honesty (because no one is really sorry when the net helps) and being mad at their not following the tradition.

You shouldn't pump your fist though. No emotion at all would be the best reaction for when that happens. Don't say you're sorry, but don't shout a "come on" either.

Come On, A Point Is A Point... If It Hits The Net Or Not... you can still ball your fist and be happy with the point. It's Wimbledon!

OMG, give it a rest, man. In your own little world, we know everybody's conspiring against your faves or not giving them their due.

I love Masha and Serena. I would do the same thing if I was in the heat of battle and a let cord went over if I hit it. If my opp hit it and it bounced back to their side, I wouldn't do the fist pump.

OMG, give it a rest. Stop acting like you are perfect. Do you actually think people that say sorry actually mean it. HELL NO.

I think it's stupid when players apologize for let-cords, you know they don't mean it when they apologize.

Then why was it wrong for Serena to do it, but no word about Maria doing the same now?! Whatīs the difference between Serena and Maria?!

Personally, I wouldn't want someone to apologize for a let cord point. The person apologizing doesn't mean it anyway, so why bother?
