John McEnroe, Mary Carillo, Ted Robinson: Sprem Knew It

Watching NBC. Lord knows they're going to harp this up till the next week. But really watching that for the 139752 time....it really does look like Sprem knew it.

As previously said, regardless of what happens for the rest of the event, the Venus-Sprem match is THE highlight of Wimbledon 2004. Not because of the tennis, or the match itself, but because of the second set tiebreak.

The tennis in the match was great and very competitive, but the controversy adds more umph to the match. This will continue to be discussed for a long time.

And so what if she knew it? Oh yes, she should have followed Roddick's example and tell it to the ump. Andy knows all about it, as he's been in those situations hundreds of times and always behaved like a saint he is.

I agree. Unless Serena loses, this will be the memory everyone has from Wimbledon 2004

it's true, it's a match to be remembered a long time.

just like we're still talking about the Hingis vs. Graff match.
the Serena vs. Kim match (Aussie Open 2003)
the Serena vs. Justine match (RG 2003)

Yeah, maybe. They don't even realise that by stating that kind of stuff they insult Venus Williams. Equivalent of saying that "Venus is much dumber than Karolina Sprem".

"..just knowing that as long as i choose life, there is hope."

Sprem is every bit as responsible as Venus is. If you blame one, you have to blame the other. Or, you're a complete tard with no credibility who is not worth listening to.

And, Cool Canuck... the FBI isn't investigating it, they were in on it and are trying to cover their tracks

Good try, but not so.

Venus wasn't the one who hit the ball out and then was told she was tied 2-2 in the tiebreak.

Watching it again, I believe she Knew it. And Venus also knew it, but I don't know why Venus did not argue or complain.

I can't imagine how Sprem must be handling it. Unfortunately, her tennis career has been tainted. All she had to do was report it, and I'm sure she would have still won the match.

GOOD LUCK

Venus
Serena

Sprem was told she was 2-2 in the tiebreak?yes. But she didnt exactly walk over to deuce court , she hit a second serve, you can t just come in and blame Karolina like you cant blame Venus. Get over it.
