Re: Rules of Tennis - Rule No.26: Hindrance
The problem here is that Asderaki suffered from "big moment stress", judging her first grand slam final. She gave away the game to Stosur in such a delicate moment and by doing so she was totally creating this unneeded controvercy that was bound to happen. Yes, Serena make hindrance with her shout, this was obvious. But Asderaki should AT MOST have called a let, and then called Serena to the chair and tell her "dont shout before the point is over".
Instead she is asking for this moment of deja vu by making such a strict intervention when not necessary.
