Re: Who are the least classiest players on tour?

I haven't watched her play beyond this video but is Irina Khromacheva always like this? I think as an opponent this could drive you nuts if you let it - a 'come on' after even the simplest of errors..

Did you actually see the video? No, if you are good at tennis you are not gonna make the volley and get the ball over the net. Serena was a couple feet away from MJM and hit full force right at her, and then she threatenend to get her in the locker room.

I could make a long list of Serena's classless behaviour (USO 2009 is only the tip of the iceberg) but why bother?
Probably because you can't.

I'm going to defend Irina here. I'm not even much of a fan of her but I think it's a force of habit now

Thankyou for years of service to British tennis

Re: Who are the least classiest players on tour?

Shit happens. I seem to recall Sharapova directing an overhead at Serena in the AO 2007 final and hitting her. Was it nice? Nope. Classy? Definitely not. Does it speak to her overall character? Wouldn't say so. Nor does her "this is my home" or classless YEC 2004 final behaviour, or "allez up your fucking ass" or anything else. She gets a lot of passes and so should other players.

But I am not generally bothered by what people see as "classless" behaviour. Stop being so sensitive.

Re: Who are the least classiest players on tour?

Serena (rage outbursts/threatening linejudge, threatened a couple of players as well, the mocking of Safina when she was #1, calling the other player a bitch during matches whenever she feels like it etc...).It's always a pain in the ass for her to aknowledge she lost a match cause her opponent was too good that day (perfect example : the "lucky shots" comment ala Federer).
maria (swearing at crowd/umpire, raised her hand when her opponent was serving and lied about it a couple of time, "this is my home" in face of Dani, the Golovin incident etc...)

They are both well trained PR machines but when they get derailed it becomes ugly.
