Yup, time to ask the question of whether the New York fans will forgive Serena for physically threatening the tiny Asian-American lineswoman in her most recent USO appearance. Personally I think they will forgive her, but only after a couple of rounds of booing in her early matches.

I believe the lineswoman is Japanese-American.

Venus Cetkovska

If they boo her it'll just make her more determined to win.

Unfair, dont shoot the messenger. I can guarantee you that I will not be booing Serena. But the fact is that booing is likely to occur in substantial quantities. Thats life in the big leagues.

Hasn't Serena gone through enough?

I have a feeling if you're there, you will start the booing.

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

Re: So, will Serena get booed in her USO return?

No. Americans hate Asians. They were probably secretly rooting for Serena to actually kill Shino.
Serena will receive a heroine's welcome even though she didn't finish the job.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Real Question: Will any of your bitches do anything relevant so you can make a thread about them?

Re: So, will Serena get booed in her USO return?

What's with the "booed" issue? Based on what, you assume booing would be the reaction of the NewYork crowd?




The fact : the crowd was booing in the Serena and Venus 's double match the day right after that infamous semifinals. However, the crowd wasn't booing at Serena, but they were booing at Patrick McEnroe who was persistently trying to ask Serena 's insight about the incident. Serena didn't answer his questions, but after the booing, Venus told Patrick : " The crowd means that they already move on, and so should you". A big round of applauses after Venus' answer. Patrick was owned.




This year, new crowd, new tournament, new Serena that just got back from a life threatening illness and injury after a year of being sideline, doing spectacular performance to make the tour interesting. And you think they will boo Serena?




The crowd in New York has more class than you do or you think they do.

I couldn't care less to be honest, 2 or so years ago now, time to let go,

As long as she brings us some awesome matches and shit dont hit the fan, then that's what Im wanting to see.
