Video of the French Open crowd

I knew they were always more animated than any other crowd, but wow, this video shows how hard it must really be to be on the receiving end of this kind of abuse, it was pretty intense!

Sorry if you guys saw this already

Yeah they were pretty harsh on her, Serena especially.

Re: Video of the French Open crowd

I feel ashamed right now!

They french crowd doesn't know the rules in tennis
I still don't understand how they can cheer for a cheater like Henin. I guess it's because she speaks french...

Re: Video of the French Open crowd

martina deserved it. she was so disrespectful(spoiled brat!)i remember that match like it was yesterday.

serena didn't. that went way beyond rooting for justine. there were other motivations behind their treatment towards her IMO

Behind you one million percent Vicky D! You will prevail In Jesus Name. Amen.

Re: Video of the French Open crowd

That's harsh, I didn't know Serena cried after the match, in the press conference. And they were jeering her BEFORE the hand incident.

France should be ashamed because of you. About Henin you know only one thing- how to hate her so whatever

Re: Video of the French Open crowd

I wonder how people can assume that every single one sitting in that stadium are all from France?

Trump Jr. says Obama plagiarized his quote, but not before he borrowed it from Obama and both president Bushes

Re: Video of the French Open crowd

Poor Serena.

She would've won that third set 63 without the vileness of the crowd.

Henin blatantly cheating kills me every time. She had to cheat to win her first Grand Slam. She had to have the crowd jeering Serena like that.

At least that will forever tarnish her legacy. As much as I respect what she did after that, that incident just puts an asterisk next to all of her Grand Slams for me.

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.

* = cheats for all the slams she won?

Re: Video of the French Open crowd

There is nothing wrong with the French Open crowd... these are just a few incidents. This is France, people here see it in their liberty to be rowdy and insulting...
The players only get tougher from it... As Serena said, it's just another obstacle.
