Re: "Missed return and Henin says allez. It's a bit amateurish to do that."
Hey, AMG and Lena D. were fist-pumping all morning--when they hit WINNERS.
Didn't bother me, even when the evil Spaniard was doing it, even given my hysterial levels of bias in that match. Celebrating an opponents unforced error is amatuerish--worse than that, even, since you can actually be penalty pointed for that at the youth level in USTA.
Yeah, maybe on set or match point, it's different because your celebrating winning, as opposed to your opponents mistake. But there are players on both the ATP and WTA tours who freakin' pump their fist and shout something when they're down like 1-5, 0-40 and their opponent makes an UE. It's not any better when idiot American football players do dances after making a tackle when their team is losing 49-0 or soccer players do huge productions after scoring goals when their team is down 4-1.
I hate that shit, too.
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
