Mary Carillo just gave the Williams' Sisters a big compliment

'Twas about their sportsmanship and how they never take a point they don't earn.

So if people still want to complain about how biased Mary is against the Williams sisters I suggest they open their minds first because it's extremely annoying to hear such stupid complaints.

Re: Mary Carillo just gave the Williams' Sisters a big compliment

Mary was very positive about both players today. I was almost shocked that she didn't come down on Serena when she was losing so badly in the first set, but Mary stayed fair throughout. Perhaps the "suits" at CBS told her to cool it after her RFed "tanking" comments.

I know. I thought a lot of people from this board disliked her because they thought she always ragged on the WS, but today she was nothing but compliments for them.

Its hard not to be complimentary when you are proven wrong.

Re: Mary Carillo just gave the Williams' Sisters a big compliment

yeah she was pretty fair today. Even when Serena was down 0-6 she said Serena was applying zero pressure to Justine and making too many errors especially off her backahnd which is usually very consistent. She was also very complimentary to Justine.

And can I say Serena is very fair and she showed it again today. Justine did not use on court coaching and so Serena did not use on court coaching. I'd say that's pretty fair.

Re: Mary Carillo just gave the Williams' Sisters a big compliment

I don't remember her ever insulting Williams's character, so this really isn't a surprise. In fact if anything I remember Carillo noting, even later on when Williams was dropping in the rankings, how much class Williams showed when she was screwed over in that '04 USO Capriati match.

No big deal. Pretty much everyone does it. All I'm saying is that Serena is not above these things, as Carillo seems to claim.
