French Crowd Booed Safina? Not So Nice If TRue

MJF on EPSN reported that the crowd booed Safina when she was leaving the court, anybody else see it?

If it is true, that was uncalled for..

Par for the course.

But...did they really? I'm sure Safina wanted to win.

Re: French Crowd Booed Safina? Not So Nice If TRue

They are confused. Going down with a fight is an stupid concept to them. The only injury they ever suffer is a shoulder injury from vigorously waving the white flag.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
Please note this is a signature about Tatjana Maria

Probably for those horrid final games. The French attendees don't take kindly to what appears to be tanking.

Maria Sharapova
Jelena Jankovic
| Kvitova | Wozniak | Azarenka | Marino | Dementieva (always) |

In love with Martha.

They used to boo Maria a lot, but somehow they like her now.

Sharapova | Jankovic | Pavlyuchenkova

“They are definitely a good example of how local communities can overcome the ‘victim syndrome,’ take greater control over their lives and build productive futures for themselves,” Ms. Sharapova said - UN Goodwill Ambassador

This.

They boo'ed a couple of umpires who overruled terribly wrong line calls today and they just boo'ed Hewitt after he dared to question Chardy' serve that was out by miles.
The worst crowd in Europe (and that's including clueless Russian fans).

For once we agree

They do have an awfull reputation, they boo anyone at any given time. They even started booing Pova because she was challenging a call...

They keep booing everyone who questions ball marks and line calls.
