I guess I have seen the light.....

I cannot fucking believe what I witnessed 10 minutes ago. Serena hits a winner down the line that was in, that the lineswomans called and and Jen I FUCKING KNOW saw in and the idiot sitting in the chair had the audacity to call it out?

I am very critical of Williams fans who cry "whoa is me" about the sisters but now I guess what they have been saying is true all along.

I have lost all respect for certain people tonight and I am not sure I can just get over it......

I agree! I am very disappointed in the whole game and am losing interest. I feel so sad for Serena. It would be a different story if it was a close call but the ball was way in.

Well, you may have to if Serena loses this match.

I can't believe Jennifer is so desperate for a spot in the QF that she would go along with cheating to get there.

It was a fucking ATROCIOUS call and I nearly spit out my drink when the ump said Ad Jennifer. The chair ump was fucking awful. I dont think, however, that Jennifer should have said anything. Its her job to win, not to give Serena points. IMO its completely different then the RG issue with Justine too. Henin denied putting her hand up, while Capriati just let the bad call go.

That smug ass bitch umpire. She should be fired. Serena, fight baby fight.

I am convinced now, these fucking slip ups and mistakes are just happeneing to the sisters too damn much when it means so much, at the most crucial times. Break this fucking pig Serena.

It would never happen, the crowd would have revolted in favor of their darling Jennifer.

No, that's not even what happened.

No one called the ball out. USA just replayed the scene and you do not hear the umpire say anything.

She got the score wrong. And it's even more inexcusable since it was a deuce point...whoever won the last point should have had the Advantage.

Again, I wouldn't be pointing fingers at Jennifer. We should be pointing fingers at tennis players. I've watched tennis like an addict for over fifteen years, and I can count on one hand the amount of times I've seen a tennis player give up a point or actually overrule a call not in his/her own favour. Tennis players simply are not shining examples of sportsmanship. Sad, but true.
