The crowd seemed to agree but it was really too close to tell from where I was sitting. It was actually pretty funny because Dani, AMG, and MJMS were all talking to the umpire in Spanish and you could tell Huber had no idea what was being said so she just walked away after a couple minutes.

At 8-4 in the super tiebreak the players switched sides and Dani went to serve. Huber went up to the umpire and said that Dani was deliberately trying to cheat because she had a better serve and that she's tried doing this before in other matches. Dani & AMG seemed confused so they asked the umpire whose turn it was to serve and the umpire took a minute before she said AMG.

The match finished 3 points later and at net Dani tried telling Huber that it was an honest mistake and that they weren't trying to cheat. Huber was not happy. She said "you're only apologizing because you won." and "at least I don;t try to cheat to win." Dani told AMG that she tried to apologize but Huber wouldn't listen and AMG rolled her eyes and threw her hand in the direction of Huber. When Huber was leaving the court she walked by them and had some nasty words for them. MJMS said something to Huber and they left the court.
Huber is such an axe wound.

Thank you for sending her packing Danka & AMG!

Re: Alexj's Indian Wells Friday Report

I don't see how anything that Huber did was wrong. You mean looking at a baby is now a criminal offense? The baby wasn't sitting in a chair by itself so clearly she was looking at the parent. This must of been the first match that you've ever watch if you don't think that people get upset because there is noise in the crowed. Don't watch an ATP match then.
Dani is a bald face liar if she said she did not know it wasn't her time to serve. It's a tiebreaker. Every person serves 2 points. She just server 3 points ago, she really thinks that she is going to serve again. BS. No one should say anything just let it happen clearly AMG is too dumb to know that it was her turn.

You people are way too hard on Huber. I thought she was destroying nets and hitting people over their heads.

Very slow. It clearly affected the hard hitters (Pavlyuchenkova, Kvitova, Bartoli)

I didn't pass judgment on Huber's actions either way. I just reported what happened. I'm actually glad Huber brings this to her matches, it makes it very interesting and fun to watch.

Re: Alexj's Indian Wells Friday Report

During the Kvitova match did you see her coach David Kotyza in the player's box/stands? or any members of her team around? Did Petra seek any on-court advice?

Great report,and many thanks for writing it. It strikes me that if the Dani/AMG team were serving at *8-4,then they must have served the point before the changeover,and that server would also start the point after the changeover. Can you remember if Liezel was in fact right about this?

Yep we are way too hard on Huber in the same way that you are way too quick to assume that everyone is out to get her. Clearly that baby and his/her parent has a vendetta against Huber not to mention Dani and AMG's obvious attempt to swing a match, in which they were already winning, in their favor. Since no tennis player ever has made a mistake in scoring or order of serving, ever.

Re: Alexj's Indian Wells Friday Report

It is just funny to see in print that someone glared at a baby, even if it is just a wee bit hyperbolic. Calls to mind Capriati. I enjoyed your report. I can't imagine Huber/MJMS will last much longer unless they start winning more consistently.
