Serena Williams has never forgiven Justine Henin?
(Flashback French Open Ladies Semifinals 2003)
Justine's semifinal win over Serena exploded in an ugly controversy midway through the 3rd set when Henin appeared not to follow normal tennis etiquette and allow Serena to replay a 1st serve. A tearful Serena said later ... "I was a little disappointed with her. It wasn't the turning point of the match, I should have still won the game. But to start lying and fabricating is not fair." But the fiesty Henin was unrepentant and felt comfortable with what happened.
"I wasn't ready to play the point. The chair umpire is there to deal with these kind of situations. "It's Serena's point of view but that's mine now and I feel comfortable with it." The acrimonous incident occurred at 4/2, 30/0 on Serena's serve in the 3rd set.
Unseen by the umpire, Justine raised her hand to indicate she was not ready to receive and Serena then served into the net. Serena had hoped Justine would tell the umpire she had raised her hand and allow her to replay her 1st serve. Henin said nothing and the stupid umpire did not intervene, forcing Serena to play her 2nd serve. Poor Serena lost the next four points to lose the service game and, eventually, the match.
