Cat Fight Alert: Tracy Austin vs. Jim Courier

A few moments ago, Austin and Courier got into a heated debate about Radwanska's tactics on Sharapova's second serve. Courier thought it was absolutely appalling and unacceptable, while Tracy thought it was a great tactic that was perfectly within the rules. Who's right?

I bet Tracy would win in a fist fight.

Tracy is so right it's not even debatable. What era is Courier living in?

Courier is such a bitchy queen. And Tracy was right... you can stand and return wherever you want to.

Re: Cat Fight Alert: Tracy Austin vs. Jim Courier

I can't believe I am saying this but Tracy Austin IS RIGHT. Look, its not against the rules its called being MENTALLY STRONG. If it is within the rules you can do WHATEVER you want on court. I am surprised that Jim the Drama Queen Courier is upset that Maria lost. I thought Jim would be more concerned with checking out the young male players like he always does.

Re: Cat Fight Alert: Tracy Austin vs. Jim Courier

He was being a little baby about it too,throwing his hands up and trying to cut her off. I agree with Tracy 100% especially when she alluded to the men taking so many injury timeouts (again it's in the rules and you do what you got to do to win). That set him off like he was thinking "how dare she comment on the men." I hope Tracy takes some potshots at him while she's calling the Vaidisova match

Tracy was right, it was a really clever tactic by Aga.

Re: Cat Fight Alert: Tracy Austin vs. Jim Courier

Courier's the one getting upset by the argument lol.

But seriously, Radwanska wasn't shifting around during Sharapova's service motions so i don't get what the big deal is.

Jim Courier is a dumbass if he thinks that's unacceptable.

Re: Cat Fight Alert: Tracy Austin vs. Jim Courier

Tracy is right of course. She is intelligent, an adjective that is diametrically opposed to Jim Courier.

Courier creeps me out.
He so has a crush on Djokovic. We might see someone else in the news for cruising before this tournament is over.

Re: Cat Fight Alert: Tracy Austin vs. Jim Courier

Tracey is ABSOLUTELY right.

She can move up then move back. It's no more than when Maria has taken bathroom breaks when she was down, then coming back to win. It's no more than when Maria runs to the side of the court on another players serve to get a new racquet then coming back to win the match.

In fact, Maria did it today on her opponent, but it didn't work.

I've seen players move inside the baseline, then back up a little to receive the serve.

Angi just did it on every one of Maria's service game today.

And it okay because the chair did not object to it.

And Dansnewbeg,

You're right, she wasn't shifting around during Maria's service motions. She just did it before she served. And that's acceptable.

If it was Venus or Serena, she would have felt a 123+++ mph serve into her body.
