The most controversial events in women's tennis...

How would you rank them?

Seles/Maleeva in Hamburg...the stabbing
Venus/Spirlea at the US Open 97...the bump
Hingis/Graf at the French Open 99'...the crybaby
Venus/Serena at Indian Wells SF 01'...the walkover
Serena/Justine at the French Open 03'...the hand
Martinez/Schnyder at Charleston 04'...the handshake
Venus/Sprem at Wimbleodn 04'...the extra point



Dang, Venus and Serena have been involved in a lot.

I'm know im missing a lot

Crying isn't a controversy. it's just being upset. Serving underhand isn't a controversy either.

No, I'm not sure though... She could be playing Maleeva... She was stabbed by a STEFFI FAN, that is one thing that I am sure of!

Because the press was all about Graf. I think that's a pretty normal and logical thought.

No, all of you are wrong. It was Graf who did it.
It WAS at Seles-Maleeva match. And it wasn't a Graf fan who did it. It was a mentally ill man who claimed to be her fan.

Schnyder got upset like she always does because Conchi kept wanting to get the ball back that she hit her winners with. And Schnyder should have won the match, but she got the ball thing in her head and fell apart, and she kept trying to get the balls before Martinez could. Then she had some not so kind words for Conchi and that's the controversy.

after the match Patty faked out her handshake...she extended her hand and when Conchi was going to shake it she pulled away and said i believe "you disgusting b*tch" or at least that what people said she said.

The crying wasn't the controversy. The serve wasn't the controversy either... doesn't anybody remember Hingis walking down the other side of the court to point out the sign where the ball was out, she got a warning for it. THAT was the whole deal!

Yeah...I always thought it was about Graf and Seles.
Now you have opened up my eyes.
It's probably because of the media...that's why I didn't know that she was playing agianst Maleeva :I(
