Ugh, it was not about stepping in.. It was about moving back and forth while your opponent is serving. There's a big difference.
Most of you would say the same thing if it happened to a player you liked. Well said Jim.
Aga played a fair game and it is within the rules.
If anyone talks about breaking rules it is sharapova. She got many with on court coaching at USO last year. She intentionally grunts loudly to distract opponents. If anyone uses gamenship sharapova is number in that category.

Courier hates women's tennis. Whatever he says is irrelevant.

I think it was gamesmanship simply because she had no intention of returning the serve from there, just trying to psych pova out. Now Serena and Venus INTIMIDATE and they don't BACK UP when they come in on Pova's serve.
