No longer curious. (Thread closed)

Serena DID get a code violation at 5-0 30-30.
However, I can't fully understand on my tape what the reason for it was.

Since the German commentator said it was because of coaching, I assumed that was the case. If it's not, I apologize.

Maybe someone can review it and clear things up.
I wouldn't have brought this up again as it's completely irrelevant noew but I don't like to be wrongly called a liar.

Wasn't it because of racquet abuse

The racquet broke I think? That's almost a guaranteed warning.

Again, no racquet smashing took place at 5-0 30-30.

For the third time: You don't get a code violation for racquet abuse when the racquet abuse took place 5 minutes earlier.
And I know it's no big deal and have said so already.

Re: Just curious, since I was called a liar because of it ...

I can't remember when, but she swore quit loudly - "look at the FUCKING ball", or something like that. It was very late in that first set, but i'm not sure it was at that point.

I certainly don't think it was for coaching, she was barely looking at her camp during the match, least of all that first set.

When you're Serena yeah, I've seen other player bust racquets and the umpire turns a blind eye

Okay that is the one. So it was for audible obscenity.

For the record, Serena did NOT get a warning for racquet abuse. Else there would have been a point penalty at the second warning.

tennisjunky trying so hard to look stupid. Only needs one post to succeed.

Oh and the topic may be closed now, as my question has been answered.
