Bud Collins completely dissed Justine

'S'OK, though; I can't stand his bombastic bloviating anywhoo.

JESUS

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. Ps. 36:1

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Ps. 14:1, 53:1

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov. 1:7

...Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. Job 28:28

Bud Collins is a good example of what is wrong with US tennis.
Old, feeble, nearly senile.

Anyone want to guess about today's NBC ratings?

A great match, I think the ratings will be half of last year.

And they will continue to go down

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I think he drives Justine insane, she just didn't want to deal with him!

SERENA WILLIAMS

Something tells me that Bud Collins does not have the authority to just wave off an interview with the finalist. I'm sure Justine has something to do with that decision.

You don't close your eyes, even for a milli-second,
when Serena is backed into a corner and looking to bust out.

That's the way it's going to be.

NBC, ESPN, USA, and CBS have all been selling tennis in the US as
US stars winning easily, a lot of it tape delayed borefests.

Now, they have nothing. They chased all the casual fans away,
and the US may not win another major for 10 years

The ratings will disappear

Exactly. A lot of times the losing player chooses not to do an interview on their way off the court.
