What's worse: Hingis @ RG 1999 or Serena USO 2009?

both players got booed, both argued about linespeople calls, whose behaviour deserves condemnation?
Hingis immature behaviour got remembered, but a mature Serena couldn't keep her head and mouth cool is really worse IMO.

Why is a HINGIS FAN starting this thread? Do everyone a favor and delete this ASAP. This is just asking for people to come in and hate on both players. Idiot.

Serena of course. The difference is that Martina was right (the ball landed on the line) and Serena was wrong.

Its not that silly, because Hingis has been trash talked over and over her Rg 1999 incident, now its really interesting how the Williams fan base will look at it, because comments yesterday were like "I understand Serena", "there was no foot fault", "I would have done the same thing".... and the case is exactly the same. Hingis went overboard after a terrible line call.

Sorry, do you not think this is a thread purely created to incite hate against BOTH players? Its asking for the GM Mods to come in an clean it up. If I think that makes him an idiot, I'm allowed to say it.

well, just report with your remarks. the poster has a right to post this thread, you have a right to complain and general messages mods will close it if they feel your complaints are well warranted.

Ryan's being a cranky pants, but he's right: dumb thread. Hingis was a dumb teenager. Both went overboard. It doesn't really matter which was worse.

Re: What's worse: Hingis @ RG 1999 or Serena USO 2009?

This is the first thing that came in my mind when so many posters yesterday were claiming that it only happens with Serena. Wasn't Hingis given a point penalty too? It just happened that Serena blew off at match point

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Hingis was much worse because it was insignificant point of the match, Serena's rage can be understandable (not that I would do the same) considering the situation.

that was my point to create such a thread! Hingis was always criticized for her behaviour, pseudo-coke snorting, while Serena's gaffes were always excused in quite a positive way.
That's because Serena has more fans, who hate Hingis. I wonder what excuses will be used by Serena's fans this time...

Someone called me an idiot... I can be idiot if that makes him feel better. I don't care.
