How other players would react if their opponent got a free point

This is how I think other players might have reacted, had their opponent been given a free point in a match:

John McEnroe: "You cannot be serious!!!! Are you deaf?!! The damn lineswoman just said out. It was out!!!!!!"

Jimmy Connors: "Are you crazy? I'm out here workin my butt off and you give him a free point? You are an abortion!"

Andy Roddick: "Are you blind? It's 2-1 in the tiebreak! What is wrong with you?! You know that thing called a hearing aid? Get one!"

Jennifer Capriati: "What?!! 2-2? She called fault! Call the f-ing referee!"

Serena Williams: "What? Were you too busy staring at my outfit to notice that her serve was out?"

Lleyton Hewitt: "Commme onnnn! That lady just called the serve out. It ain't 2-2 matey! I'll see you in court you spastic blimp!"

Kim Clijsters: "Please, Mr. Linesperson, sir, I think that lady called the ball out."

I have fond memories of Jana Novotna at Brighton after questioning a Ted Watts line call walking away with her back to him doing an impression of milking a one teated cow (or more exactly something long that hangs between a bulls legs)

There was also Gabie Sabatini mocking the umpire and linesmen for what she thought was a wrong call by doing an impression of a blindperson walking with a cane

No, it's impossible, coz she gets all the 'free points' by showing her hands, her opponent won't have a chance.

Otherwise why bother calling her 'THE HAND'!

Justine Henin

Thank you.

Do you guys ever noticed that Justine ALWAYS puts up her hand when the opponent is going to serve? Maybe itīs a reflex...or the crowd is just always too loud...just wondering
