Can anyone picture this?

On the first day of the US Open, all umpires (chair and line) report about an hour early. All of them are asked to attend a meeting where tournament referee speaks, atp and wta supervisors and a chief umpire speak as well. Now, considering that this board is blaming the tournament for deliberately going after Williams sisters based on their race, could you imagine this being announced at this meeting: "The goal for all of us is to make sure that Williams sisters do not win the tournament. Please use all kind of motivations to achieve it: you don't like black people, you don't like Jehovas, you don't like their farther. All will work."

I mean this is the only explanation I have for the footfaults and bad calls Venus and Serena received in this tournament from DIFFERENT line umpires. How else could this all be explained?

Very sad indeed. It's sad theories like these that keep racism alive.

I dunno, maybe because they committed footfaults and hit balls out? Just a thought...
