Sprembledon - "The Point"

http://youtube.com/watch?v=_TUiXb2Ynu4

i know im really stupid but i kind of forgot what happened. i know the umpire said the score wrong and the players went along with it (weirdly) but did it get corrected or did they just carry on? did it essentially cost vee the match?

thanks

Ted Watts seemed smitten by K-Lina . The smile he gives her when she has the confused look on her face was

The match continued with the error, no one corrected it. Sprem most likely would have won either way.

Me too, I remember that tie break well. I remember the goofy ass look Watts gave K-lina and she was a little creeped out.

But the score wasn't corrected.

I love watching this video. I wish it were just a bit longer before and after that point.

i dont like remembering it it, i felt like both players lost their concentration after it happened and without it the match outcome could have been different

i think that karolina's grunt made it look like she was going for the shot even though she knew the serve was out - and then the crown cheering and everything. but when the umpire called the score venus must have just thought she hadnt followed the points right. but surely they knew by which side they were standing at

ted watts is an idiot, and the last few points of the match were pretty poor quality. both players were just confused at the call

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Both K-Lina and Venus handled the situation after the match very well. I honestly believe neither of them quite knew what was happening during the match.

It could've effected the otucome but Venus had like 4 set points

Both players waved it off as no big deal and it really wasn't. That being said I think if Venus won that tiebreak she would've gone on to win the match
