1991 US Open 4R or 2009 US Open SF?

Which one was worse?

Jimmy Connors went pretty crazy too and didn't even get a warning or violation... interesting.

It seems men can get away with a lot more than women in tennis.

Was that 4R US Open Leila Meskhi vs Gigi Fernandez 76 67 76 in 1991? What a match

I still haven't seen the Serena outburst. From what I can tell, it was awful.
Connors was awful. The media should have been apologizing to John McEnroe after that one. Mac never had anything to match that.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

You can point out all the examples you want, but it doesn't change the fact that Serena is receiving special treatment - Brydan Klein was suspended for 6 months for a lesser offence.

Serena threatened harm. Unless I missed something, Connors didn't. He was an ass though.
