Cool The Ultimate Poll : Which was the most EVIL?

This is not another thread about the Maria/Shahar thing yesterday, this is just a poll to decide which of the following things would be the most evil, the most unsportsmanlike in recent womens tennis. I decided not to do multiple choice vote, but you only have one vote, so think exactly about what you think was the most evil.

The Nominees

"The fucking Venus Williams affair" | Spirlea/V.Williams
At the 1997 US Open semifinal match between Irina Spirlea and Venus Williams, there was the infamous bumping incident in the third set tie-breaker. Irina and Venus intentionally collided near the net; after the match which went 76(5) 46 76(7) to Venus, there was a lot of discussion and Irina said "I'm not going to move. She never tries to turn" and "She thinks she's the fucking Venus Williams."

"Fucking Bitch" | S.Williams/Loit
Australian Open 2003, First Round. Highly favourite and first seeded Serena Williams has a tough match against tricky franchwoman Emilie Loit who forces Serena to three very intense sets. The match eventually went to Serena 36 76(5) 75, but at one time when Emilie saved a mp with a good dropshots, Serena said something like "fucking bitch" to Emilie combined with some evil staring. Serena was fined afterwards because of bad language. I also saw the match on Tv and also thought she said "fucking bitch" to Emilie.

"Disgusting bitch" | Schnyder/Martinez

This infamous incident happened at Charleston 2004 when Patty once again lost to Conchita and refused to shake hands with the Spaniard, but instead called her a "disgusting bitch". With her antics, Conchita irritated the Swisswoman so much that she was completely fed up after the match. Patty's husband suggested that next time both meet in a match they should go to a dinner afterwards...

"The Hand incident" | Henin-Hardenne/S.Williams
2003 French Open semifinal Justine defeated 62 46 75. Controversy enveloped the match in the third set when Williams led 4-2 (15-0). While Williams was in the act of delivering her first serve, Henin-Hardenne put up her hand to indicate that she was not ready. Under the rules, Williams' netted first serve would have been replayed. The umpire, however, did not see Henin-Hardenne's gesture and when he asked her about it, she did not respond. The umpire ordered a second serve, and a visibly upset Williams lost the game, and later, the lead and the match. After the match, the replay showed that Henin-Hardenne did put up her hand as Williams was serving. Although she went on to win the tournament, the question of Henin-Hardenne's sportsmanship remained

"The Hand 2??!!" | Sharapova/Peer
There are enough threads about this, no need to explain what happened, everybody saw it. Maria was not ready yet for a second serve of Shahar, still Shahar served and served a DF. Being asked by the referee if she was ready or not, Maria lied and said she was ready.

You should edit the Justine/Serena one - Justine was never asked anything by the umpire. That's just some wierd WTAworld myth that's sprung up around it.

I have only seen the last one... but I guess "The fucking Venus Williams affair" was the worst because there was a physical contact... could have been a real fight. But Schnyder/Martinez would probably have been the most fun to watch.

Federer not letting anyone win slams (rg excepted, clay has another King) in these recent years is the most evil tennis thing.

Some Bad Boys are too talented.

to new beginnings.

I thought about including Nicole Vaidisova's treatment of her fans and ballkids also

Fans of the players mentioned in the poll, shouldnt be angry or offended or something, its actually just for fun

I had that in mind also, but it wasnt really a conflict between the two players, rather between Serena and the referee.

Venus/Karolina was also an infamous incident, but also rather not a conflict between the two.
