What an ass!!!

The guy that was interviewing Serena said that those earing she is wearing prob cost more that Chan has made in her whole career. Then the crowd booed, and Serena said that wasn't very nice was it? Then Serena said that she was only 16. When she was 16 she didn't have much more than $5,000, so I am glad to see Serena stick up for Chan, but that was ignorant for him to say!

It wasn't the right thing to say.
Kudos to Serena for sticking up for Chan.

He probably was trying to complement her about her earings and for a better career. But it was a nasty thing to say about Chan

lol, some people shouldn't try to be clever.

Good for Serena and the crowd!

Between the this guy, Murphys, Tim Ryan and Chris Fowler, I can't figure out who is more annoying and rude. What an ass hole. Honestly. The girl is 16 -- how many other 16 year olds have careers -- much less have earn 40,000? How many sixteen year olds have the drive to be out on Center Court against Serena Williams and play a gutsy match? I'd like to see him try.

I still have one of my reciever on the channel and I rewind and the guy really did say that.. I think he was just trying to be funny but once the crowd realized what he said they booed him.. then Serena was like "that wasn't nice" "When I was 16yrs I didn't have $5000" A lie indeed as she was already signed with Puma.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

That was one of those moments where it's like, "Open mouth, insert foot!" Michael Barkan embarrassed himself big time. It was even more funny for Serena to say that she didn't even have $5,000 when she was 16!

WHAT? Venus already had tons of contracts when she was 18 (Serena was 16 at the time).
Just tell the interviewer the truth and tell him to fuck off, no need to be ashamed of something like that.
