Benesova just got cheated (revival of Venus/Sprem Wimbledon)

It was Adv Benesova, she won the point and the umpire said "deuce"

She went to the umpire, talked for a few minutes but the umpire didn't correct the score
She just smashed her racket in disbelief

She eventuelly won that game

Come on Iveta
Beat that cheater

She didn't look too hopeless in the first set, or indeed at the start of the third until this thing took place.

How funny... Robson is 1000 times better than Benesova as a 14-year old.

Oh Okay, So the fact that the umpire got the score wrong indicates Robson is a cheater because she had something to do with it.

Oh,Okay.

Couldn't Laura have validated the score?!
I can't believe the umpire didn't know the score

Re: Benesova just got cheated (revival of Venus/Sprem Wimbledon)

shes a cheater because she was ready to return, or getting ready. Called duece then asked for some tennis balls. And was wating to serve. Dead set, she needs to mature a little mroe to gain respect.

Well she's not the first player to not remember the score during matches, that's not making her a cheater, the umpire is the one who called it not Robson ...I mean it's not like if Laura went to the umpire amd complained about the score then the umpire changed her decision. The umpire called it, and then Robson was ready to serve.

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

Very unsportsman like. If it were a Lindsay on the other side, Robson would have copped a spanking!

Yes that is true. But to me it looked liek she knew the score. She wasnt ready to serve again, untill they called duece. But really in reality you should know whats right from right. But theres nothing we can do about it now.

Robson Cheater . But if she didnt know, then my apologies. But to me it looked as if she knew the score.

Re: Benesova just got cheated (revival of Venus/Sprem Wimbledon)

She's just 14-year-old for f*ck's sake. I mean she may be just immature or too nervous to know what she should do. And even if she knows the score then okay she is just 14-year-old and there's pressure on her already so she may be confused because she hopes she can win this match and doesn't know what's the rite thing to do. If she does it again in the future, say like, when she's 18, then well you can tell her a cheater.
