Congrats to cal linesmen

They beat Elena. They were the worse (biased) linesmen I have ever seen.
And Davenport showed abominable behaviour.After gifting at least 3 points in the most crucial game she argued with the umpire about a clear point and wheedled another one later.
And so many people here contend she is the nicest player
She is a bitch

i don't think the linespeople were biased toward lindsay... they were just horrible. and elena got a bunch of really horrible calls that really could have changed the complexion of the match. for one, she should have been up 2-1 instead of down 2-1.
but credit to lindsay, she did play a great match and really toom it to elena and played very consistent and moved incredibly well in the first set.

Some people don't know this, but, Davenport uses gamesmanship more than any other player out there. She's been doing this for years.

Lindsay would NEVER question a call if she didn't think it was out (or in). The linesmen were drunk today.

Linespeople were awful for some time of the match. But the calls went against both players. Unfortunately, the bad calls came at crucial points for Lena.

Every palyer has the right to question dubious calls. It's perfectly within the rules. Can hardy blame Lindsay, even though I dearly wanted Lena to win

both ways?
i didn't notice when Elena was favoured.
but it was damn clear lindsay's out for 2-1 and the situation wnen she yelled the ball touched the line i saw it
she may THINK that every her ball is in , and opponent's one is out, maybe there is no need of linesmen, lindsay may judge instead of them

argueing like that deserves at least a penalty point, i had a feeling she would beat the umpire
