I have to admit you are correct. I just heard Serena roar

the first time I heard her do that. That primodial, from

the bottom of her gut roar was quite emphatic.

It happened when she hit that final ACE to win the Gold

medal at the Olympics. But that wasn't a hindrance, that

was a message. The Queen of the jungle had already gotten

her prey



Carillo made a point of it going off the air when

she said " heres another look at the final point

with commentary by Serena Williams "

How did she deserve it!?! She was doing her job as she should, it wasn't deserved. Serena just went psycho, no suprise there.

Deserving of verbal abuse for doing their jobs *correctly*. That's a new one.

Yer projecting. It's your head which is in miss Williams' rear end (only then can one be able to even think about putting the word Serena and class in the same sentence).

Even Serena herself would admit (in whatever classless manner) that her sister is the classy one.

Yes she deserved it. Of the 2 options Asderaki had (a let or forfeit), she chose the harshest so she deserved the harshest response. Nothing new there. It was Serena's first hindrance in the match and it was unintentional. You wouldn't be smiling if your work supervisor fired you because you intentionally spill coffee on your co-worker even if the rule gave her that option. At the FO few months later the same Asderaki chose a let on what she judged as a Razzano hindrance and didn't forfeit the point in Serena's favor why?

So when can one complain to the umpire then? Because according to you not even when they miss countless of calls ( '04 u.s. open) it still is no good.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Hmm I don't remember saying it wasn't of for Servena to complain at the USO 04, I clearly said a couple times that 04 had nothing to do with 09 and 11.

Yes, you're also free to be a delusional idiot and that's the option you seem to choose mostly!

Because there are two different categories of hindrance; Asderaki did not have two options - there are separate rulings for deliberate vs. unintentional hindrance. This topic has been beaten to death and the next afterlife on this forum.

A shout of come on is deemed an intentional hindrance because the action (saying come on) is intentional, whether or not the intent to hinder is actually intentional. That's a point penalty. Verbal utterances of pain (in Razzano's case) are treated under the same rule as if a ball falls out of your pocket or something: the first instance is a let and a warning while you're docked a point for each subsequent time.

You can take several seats.

The frustration of seeing a repeat of '04 in her eyes, boiled over. So it's linked together.
Her reaction was unfortunate, but it's deeper frustration.

Dominic really does have an obsession with Serena. Pathetic human being.
