Can somebody please tell Sharapova...

...it's quite rude to pump your first and YELL out Come on! when your opponent makes an error? Once is ok, but it happened about 15 times tonight.

It is kinda rude and even more since Serena is injured. But most players do it.

It sounds like Maria has gone to the Lleyton Hewitt school of tennis etiquette

I like it when players do this. it shows they are in the match, the error usually comes from a great shot that the other player hit, so why not be happy about it. Its rude when you do it on a double fault.

It's rude to pump your fist at a DF when your opponent is injured tho. Not necessary.

Which she just did after Serena's 3rd double fault in this game.

It's not rude normally.

But that last game she did it after every point.

she's injured for christ's sake...
