Paris audience

I think the audience in Paris is by far the most unfair audience I have ever seen.I am not a Sharapova fan but the crowds behaviour towards her is totally unfair.Like many other people here i watch Roland Garros every year,and its the same every year...always this booing out and shouting between 1st and 2nd serve. is how I find this behaviour...

Re: Paris audience

I fully agree. Clearly, I'm not a Sharapova fan, but there was no reason to boo her today. Last year in the Schnyder match, I understand why the crowd turned on her. Today, all Sharapova did was try to win, and the RG crowd booed her, which was stupid. They truly are the worst slam crowd in tennis, and it's a shame.

Many of my favorites have received similar treatment in the past. It's just unfortunate.

Re: Paris audience

stop whining about the crowd.
The world is not perfect. get used to it. if you go to USO it will also be the same. Underdogs are always get high support and favorites are expected to get booed and heckled.
Frankly i enjoyed the crowd with the exception of a couple of jerks.(which really didn't bother me.)
But sharapova behavior is unexceptable. She is a proffesional player not a club player. Sh should handle it better.
