Did anyone hear Maria swear?

Saw it close up on TV - mic and everything. It happened when a tennis ball fell out of Camille's skirt and the umpire (John Blom) had to order a replay of the point.

Maria said something like, "are you fucking kidding me?"

It sounded so cute, the way she swears

Btw, temperatures at Melbourne were 39 degrees Celsius (102 degrees Fahrenheit). Court humidity would've been higher, so Maria's injury time-out was understandable. Props to her and Camille for fighting through to the end.

Re: Did anyone hear Maria swear?

yes she did. chris fowler only confirmed it even more. that def. brought back the days of Capriati. but hey, if ur playing in the 120 degree heat and u lost a close point, let the players vent.

I actually thought it was funny how casually she did it too :-)

Re: Did anyone hear Maria swear?

Yeah though I remember she appologised after with something like "sorry, but that's not right".

I got the impression she was a bit suprised she said it too.

I think that wasn't meant as an apoligy

Right before that she said: 'You don't think she lost the point because the ball fell, did you?' or something along those lines.
After that she said: 'Sorry, but that's not right.'

it was funny though!

Oh are you sure? I thought it was the other way round.

Anyway, like it matters lol.

Re: Did anyone hear Maria swear?

It was also funny how Maria thought they were playing a tie-break in the final set

Re: Did anyone hear Maria swear?

Well I hope I can watch it in replay. Because it sounds hilarious .
But she kinda was stolen of the point as I came to understand. She won the point before the ball dropped. So she should've gotten the point. Perhaps a wrong decision by the umpire.

No no, she did not win the point before the ball dropped.
The ball fell from Pin's skirt at the exact moment Pin hit the ball (replay nicely showed that). The ball she hit went out once it landed on Maria's side. The umpire made the right decision.

LMAO... I've got Jen's 'F' bomb exposion on tape... it was the funniest thing I'd ever heard until now. They even beeped Maria out when they replayed it later.

Re: Did anyone hear Maria swear?

I guess you guys must've gotten the American replays of the match. When Channel 7 Australia aired it live, they didn't censor the F-bomb. We're getting more liberal with words these days - they even allow "shit" on prime-time radio
