Australian Crowd really hates Venus

Injured, battling pain, not retiring. And they are still cheering against her.
Reminds me of when they were cheering her double faults a couple of years ago against CSN

Re: Australian Crowd really hates Venus

They're not cheering against Venus. Australians go for the underdog and like an upset. That's why they are cheering for Zahlavova.

If they were cheering against Venus, they would go nuts when she double faulted and made errors.

Crowd Favourite Victoria Azarenka

Re: Australian Crowd really hates Venus

Crowd is unpleasant. I hate when they clap to rush someone coming back from an injury timeout.

Re: Australian Crowd really hates Venus

Wow... it's weird but both of them grunt EXACTLY the same way. Is this some sort of mind game they are playing on each other?

I'm sure Venus is used to it. No matter where she goes it's practically the same way. Except for Acapulco.

Re: Australian Crowd really hates Venus

Whether they are cheering for the underdog or not, it's kind of a bad taste cheering against an injured player who could have just retired.
