Gamesmanship My Arse.....

WHat da hell has Jim Courier been smoking?
Stepping in a few feet on an opponents serve is well within the rules, and its called INTIMIDATION!

Just like going for the head or the body at the net!!!

Its not nice, but its well within the rules!!

Re: Gamesmanship My Arse.....

Seriously,he needed to calm down and shut the hell up. If an american man did it,he would say the exact same thing as Tracy did. For once I was on Tracy's side. They were started to get heated

Re: Gamesmanship My Arse.....

sharapova should be able to get over someone moving about on return of serve, loads of players do it
i think all the UEs masha made had more to do with this result than aga moving around on return

Courier has been annoying the entire week. He's the USA Network's version of Brad Gilbert.

Re: Gamesmanship My Arse.....

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.

Re: Gamesmanship My Arse.....

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.

Re: Gamesmanship My Arse.....

It's always nice to see the word "arse" in use, it's become a bit of an endangered species these days.

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

It was a smart tactic. She got inside Maria's head hence the double faults

Re: Gamesmanship My Arse.....

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.
