Did you guys catch the handshake?

I tivo'd it and watched it like ten times...and after the handshake, Serena looked at her like what? She reacted to Momo being short with her...Might have been discussed but I have never seen this before...(outside of Conchie and Patty)

Official Gangsta rappa of the Royal Court

Will you be there?

Momo was pissed that Serena stopped her from getting the #1 ranking, She really thought she was going to win.Didn't really want to shake Rena's hand, I suppose, but had to because its customary.

And It's Not Over Yet...Just Wait....Wait.

Well, sure it was kinda funny. I mean Serena's reaction was funny. About Amelie, though it was not very elegant, just imagine you were at her place at this particular time, loosing 8 times out of nine to a player and choking for the 185649 th time on a big event : personally, I would be madly pissed off, angry against myself, maybe I would even think of stopping tennis. So the thing is somehow forgiveable.

I don't really know how anyone who just loses a tough match no matter what can be all happy when they shake hands. The way I am I would be so pissed at myself I would just want to grab my stuff and get out!!!!

I saw that. Damn, talk about looking like a sore loser. That was funny. Serena was trying to say "good match" and Momo quickly withdrew her hand and walked away. Serena was like, WTF??!!

Rena did the same thing after she lost to Henin at RG.

you can use the search tool to look for it but I'll go over it again.

Faste brought up the point that it is illegal for the chair umpire to ask Justine if she held her hand up, just as a chair umpire can not ask the player if a close ball was in or out. Therefore justine not answering the umpire's question was the correct response since it was a question he can not ask.

If the serve had gone in and Rena win the point, it would have stood because the umpire did not see Justine hold her hand up.
