Justine is the one that isnt so gracious after semi finals

Q. She called a trainer. Later we found out it was because of dizziness. She also said afterwards that she was not a hundred percent.
JUSTINE HENIN: I'm surprised (smiling).

Q. Are you okay? What happened there in the second set where you had to have the trainer out?
VENUS WILLIAMS: Uhm, you know, I'm okay. I just was feeling dizzy, a little sick to the stomach. Was just having some energy problems. I'm not really sure what's wrong with me. But, you know, credit to her for playing well.

Q. Were you feeling that way at the beginning of the match? You took a quick bathroom break before the match actually started. Were you already feeling a little sick?
VENUS WILLIAMS: No. I just had to have a bathroom break because I was really trying to stay hydrated throughout the whole tournament. But, yeah, I definitely was having some problems. You know, she played well.

Q. I know you have not played Justine for three and a half years. You said you'd been following her. Is this the best level you've seen her play?
VENUS WILLIAMS: She always plays well, so... Whether it's today or any other day, she always plays a solid game. Definitely credit to her.

Re: Justine is the one that isnt so gracious after semi finals

What?

All Justine meant was that Venus played so well that she was surprised that she wasn't 100%. You're really stretching.

........so Justine is not gracious because she was smiling after having won the semi final of a grand slam. Good one.

Re: Justine is the one that isnt so gracious after semi finals

Isn't so gracious? On that scale, there aren't many words to describe Serena and her dad's lack of respect to Justine. Just curse words.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

JUSTINE HENIN: " .... I mean, they both have a lot of personality and a lot of character, and I think they are both great champions. I can admit that, and it's tough to play against them."

Sounds gracious to me.

Re: Justine is the one that isnt so gracious after semi finals

Her response was definitely slightly bitchy. Can't blame her though after the Serena match with the Williams clan running around and diminishing her performance.

I'm actually glad that she wasn't totally diplomatic as she showed before.

Re: Justine is the one that isnt so gracious after semi finals

Come on now.
You guys know what tennisIlove09 is alluding to.

The transcript put the "smiling" word to convey Henin reaction.
This this implies skepticism, incredulity.
So dno not pretend you do not know how to read the interview.
