Thumbs down Drama at Indian Wells?

Apparently instead of supporting their home player in Keys, the crowd were cheering loudly for Stosur, who is Australian.

Here are the tweets about it:

Ben Rothenberg ‏@BenRothenberg
Agent Max Eisenbud just in here, livid at lack of crowd support that IW crowd gave his client American Madison Keys. Called them "morons."

Matt Cronin ‏@TennisReporters
Keys agent just came up to press row 2 complain about fans cheering for Aussie Sam over American Madison Keys. Called em 'idiots'

Seems strange they wouldn't support the American, what reasons could there possibly be for this to happen..?

Re: New racism drama at Indian Wells?

Here's a reason:

Matt Cronin ‏@TennisReporters
Simple 2 me why Stosur got more support than Keys: She's known US Open champ, is humble, likeable. Very few fans know teenager Madison yet

No need to bring racism into this imo.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Embarrassed for this "agent". His job is precisely to help Madison become popular and well-known. He's doing the exact opposite by criticizing the general public.

So far none. But OP wants to make it so. Madison's agent said nothing about race.

Re: New racism drama at Indian Wells?

No racism here. Sam is a former major champion. Please change the thread title to "dumb agent doesn't like people choosing who they support"

GO THE AUSSIES!


Alicia Molik|Sam Stosur|Nicole Pratt|Casey Dellacqua|Sophie Fergsuon|Monqiue Adamczak|Jess Moore|And the rest of the aussies

Also support: Ana Ivanovic| Maria Kirilenko| Misa Krajicek| Marion Bartoli| Jarmila Gajdosova| Lucie Safarova

They even don't know who Madison is... She's totally irrelevant for them.

Any crowd heavily supporting Samantha Jane has questionable characteristics about it.
