ChairUmpire should be BANNED and NEVER allowed to chair a final again!!!!!

Congrats to Kim for playing a good match BUT I CANNOT go without stating that Serena was ROBBED of the first set from the COMPLETE IDIOT CHAIR who overuled Serena's ball that was IN but overuled out that would have given Serena 4-2 up and consequently the set.

The chair is ONLY supossed to overrule a shot that is CLEARLY IN or OUT! NOT what they felt over the line-judge! I am thoroughly disgusted that the chair would overrule a shot that WAS NOT clearly out and ruined the outcome of a championship title match!


The linespeople were doing a great job the whole week and to overule at this stage of a match was a TRAVESTY!!

Get over it, you win some and you lose some. Serena also won the point that gave Kim 30-30 in the final game. It would have been 2bp's for serena, but those are the breaks. Kim deserved the win...she made less errors.

YOU get over being robbed! BIG difference in a POINT than a GAME !! That point would NOT have given Kim the set and it WAS NOT overuled! Missed the point I see.

I think that chair umpire is retiring anyway.

I browse once in a while.

Mr. Luis...I got your point, but those are the breaks. Serena had multiple other opps to win the first set and she failed to capitalize. After breaking Kim, she raced out to 40-0 or 40-15 on her service games and failed to win them everytime.

Its clear she was off tonight, I mean when do you see anybody break Serena that much. She won 3 slams this year, I'm sure she is not crying over this loss

Kimmy is a fighter, you can never count her out at any point, neither serena would lose anymore because of a bad point

they are way too good for that

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

All players get a bad call against them at some stage. Yes, it's wrong, but we just have to deal with it.

BK4ver the point is moot after the OVERULE because had the OVERULE NOT happened the set was Serena's in the bag! She didnt need chances to still win the set because the nature of games following the overule would have given serena the set.

Oh you know, that particular chair umpire was the one which drove Lindsay mad last year... and she is the one which always drives Capriati mad...

I'm so glad we won't be seeing anymore of her next year...

But Serena's lost cannot be attributed to that, she had many other chances to win the first set. It is her fault for letting Kim back in.

Serena was not going to win tonight. Kim was the better player in the match. Truth is Serena did not come to this tournament inform. She was not even that disappointed because she had not prepared properly. The fact that she got to the finals is amazing she has said as much herself. She made other choices rather than prepare for this tourney. She herself said due to the way she was playing, she was amazed she reached the finals. But this will serve her well. Both Sisters will be ready for the Aussie.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Some of you dont seem to understand. Linespeople make good calls makes bad calls thats the breaks and sometimes throughout a match it evens out, BUT for a CHAIRUMPIRE to OVERULE a call that was NOT clearly a mistake is my gripe! She had NO business to overule the call when it was NOT clearly out! That call determined a set!

I have to agree , she was leading 5-3 in the 1st set.
when she's on she's the toughest player to break.
she was simply tired, but you have to give credit to KIM too.
i mean,THIS IS THE LAST PLACE TO GET TIRED. (imho)
