in light of some disgusting calls...

i am proud to call myself a Serena Williams fan because she handled it with class and showed that a champion isn't only someone who wins, but behaves like a champion.

bad calls went against her, but she battled on like a trooper and i love her for that

i cannot bring myself to congratulate Jennifer on the other hand sore loser or not, it's just sad to see her win a match like that

I agree! I am proud of Serena, she tried in spite of the bad calls. I hope Elena kicks Jen's ass.

Does not ease the fact I am sad for Serena right now. Jennifer in my mind should have shown some sportmanship on that obvious call......
