Yuri's gesture after the match

Did anyone understand what he was actually signalling?

He put his hoodie over his head and then signalled it, it looked sorta nasty - it looked like either I'm going to Kill you, I'm a cool American gangsta or something possibly something in between

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: Yuri's gesture after the match

I think he was trying to say that she killed Henin out there tonight.

I thought it maybe that, but he seemed to do it when Henin was looking that way - if that was the case then it was pretty mean

Re: Yuri's gesture after the match

I didn't like the action. I thought it was a bit petty.
She won the match. She knows she kicked Justine's ass. He didn't have to go out of his way to do something like that.

And it especially looked creepy in that as Mary Carillo mentioned "unabomber" outfit.

I think this was just a normal action?

If she has not won, she would receive these critics but others. They never stop.

Who cares about what he does?

Re: Yuri's gesture after the match

Maria laughed about the hood in her interview after the last time Yuri had it on. She said he looked like an "assassin" and he shouldn't wear it - maybe he was telling her he would never wear it again since Maria played so well without it (the hood).

Re: Yuri's gesture after the match

Oh come ON people - he was joking with the whole ASSASSIN thing that Maria was laughing about earlier in the tournament, putting his hood up and doing the neck slash gesture.

I don't like the guy but even I could see it was a joke between him and Maria.

People really do see what they want to see, don't they.

I can understand if it was a joke between the two of them, the part I wouldn't like is if Justine saw it. I mean Justine certainly didn't throw the match, the first set really could have gone eitherway.

From my recollection, Justine was already on her way back to the locker room.

Re: Yuri's gesture after the match

he was being really rude.. it seemed like the hood represented the hood that is put over a criminal who is about to be hung.. cos his slit his hand across his throat which means to kill.. whatever it is, it was totally uncalled for and so ungracious.

I look at people like Andre Agassi and Monica Seles, and of course what they did. I was always amazed at how Monica came back after so long and did so well. I try to keep that as an inspiration. He who doubts loses. (Serena Williams)
