Second of all, Serena has shown her classlessness waaaay more times than 2. She makes disrespectful or spiteful comments in her press conferences or interviews on a regular basis. And it's fine if you're ok with supporting classless ppl but that's not everyone's case.

This..... coming from a supporter of Elena Dementedeva The same player who was classless enough (due to bitterness) to make unsubstantiated allegation that Richard Williams arranges who win between his 2 daughters each time they play.

Any wonder then why a mediocre player like Dementedeva retired frustrated, bitter, angry & slamless? When u hate ppl for what they have that u don't have, u'll always end up like dementedeva

She crossed the line, it was an awful behavior, but no, you can't describe her as a demon because of that. We all have outbursts, we are all classless now and then, but it looks like it's the worst sin ever only if it happens in front of camera.
Nalbandian did get LOADS of crap for what he did and it wasn't even on purpose so it's not comparable whatsoever to what Serena did and said. Sure some players are rude to umpires and linesmen, but I don't see them physically threaten them or berate them with childish nonsensical insults for like 10 mins. Sure many players/ppl have outbursts, are they all equally as bad as what we saw from Serena? Not even kinda close.

It is very possible to be honest and say exactly what you think without hurting anyone or laughing at anyone or being disrespectful, it is called class and many players have it.

I don't have any problem with that but just don't try to push nonsensical things like Serena is classy or nice or anything like that when she is probably the worst in the wta when it comes to that.

I think you need to understand that "LOADS of players" haven't been robbed the way Serena has in tennis matches. How many players do you know have had points robbed off them at a QF stage of a slam (US Open 2004)? There is a reason why Serena feels so hard done by nowadays which explains her huge (and 'unclassy') outbursts. Not that I am justifying her behaviour, but there is a reason for things, and so it explains why others haven't had the same outburts as Serena.

Hmm, well good thing I'm not racist.. and I would say sending a douchy derisive badrep about someone's parents who died recently is also up there.. just sayin'

BTW both those things you said about Maria were called for and deserved so what you're saying is crap and irrelevant as usual.

So you think calling a black person a gorilla is not racist? Oh really. I wonder if the KKK would agree with you. I bet they would.

Why were they called for

Not with mulitple line calls at a QF stage of a slam they haven't. You obviously didn't read my post. But if you want to be obnoxious about it, then that's your perrogative. How ironic....

And she's given credit to her opponent when she was defeated ...

QF USO against Capriati she even wished Capriati would win the tournament, Final against Stosur USO, YEC against Maria 2004 very nice at the net, etc

Most posters on this board can't even define "class".
They'll just label the player that they hate 'classless'.

Re: Who are the least classiest players on tour?

The most classless thing that Serena does on a regular basis is not letting her opponent shake the umpire's hand first when Serena is the winner. It is common courtesy to let the losing player shake the umpire's hand first. Other than this and her various outbursts she is nothing compared to some of the other aforementioned players!

Ana Ivanovic
Angelique Kerber Sara Errani Julia Goerges
Marion Bartoli Garbiñe Muguruza
Andrea Petkovic Mona Barthel
