Serena Vs Cappy/nasdaq-100 Open

I saw this match live this weekend. I've seen Serena and Jennifer play a lot on television. I think Jennifers problem is simply Serena. As the match goes on Serena gets better while Jennifer stays at the same level. Also, if you were there at the Nasdaq you would understand why fans of the Williams sisters cry racism so often. The crowd there was very partial to Jennifer. Toward the middle of the third set, when it was clear that Jennifer would lose. A lot of the people got up and walked out.Also, this is my first post here. I was content to read in the past. I would like to start posting now. Please let me know your thoughts.

Were they partial to Jen because she basically grew up in Florida or are you saying they were partial because she is white....

Be careful.

If that's the case then was it the same when it was Jen/Chanda??

First of all, people cheered for Capriati because she's the underdog. Second of all, even Serena's father walks out on their daughters during their matches when either they are about to win or when things aren't going well. Third of all, like gourownway already said, why did people cheer for Chanda against Capriati? Last time I checked Rubin was black too. Stop looking for racism everywhere.

ouch
i totally agree
jen is a very likeable person and everyone recognises that and i think also people want someone other than one of the williams to win so they cheer for the others more it just so happens that it was someone white playin serena.it may have been different if it was venus or chanda playin against serena.i dont think it will help anythin by callin racism at the slightest sniff of somethin you dont like.jen deserves all the cheering she gets!!!!!!!!!!

That underdog theory does not work when it comes to V/S so stop using it. As I said before 95% of the fans were for her and they also cause her to lose that match by yelling out and making her lose her concentration. You would think her fans should know by now that she has a very low attention span and the slightest noise distract her. So her down fall came from her so call fans. Not only that Jen is very intimidated by Venus and Serena she said it her self. Her words were "They intimidate you".

By the way Venus and Serena pratically grew up in Florida, so what's up with Jen spending most of her life in Florida none of them are born Floridians so that comment in one of the treads about growing up in Flordia is moot. Give it a rest and stop trying to make excuses for the fans racist behaviour.

Wait a minute!!! I said that I can understand why it can be seen as racism.Those people walked out of the match because they came to watch Serena lose. I did not hear loud booos when balls that Serena hit close to a line were called out. As a matter of fact, if u were in my seat you would've heard the cheers when Serena's close shots were called out.And, for the record Capriati is not a likable person!!!

Those people were not Jenn fans, just Williams haters, that's why they walked out.

People walk out VERY VERY OFTEN when they realize that the match is over. It's not only when it's the Williams sisters.

Why is that? Because you don't like her?

Everyone on the tour is likeable, they wouldn't have fans if they were not.

You can not base this on one match. I saw them play each other in Los Angeles last year. The crowd was what I would consider evenly divided to a little more on Serena's side. I didn't see many people get up and leave, but then again the third set was close. Maybe fans of both didn't care to see a third set blow out??

So how was the crowd when Serena played Kim??? Did they all cheer for kim and leave during the second set when they figured she wasn't going to pull it out?

What a stupid thing to say!! Everyone on the tour is not likeable!! Jennifer is not likeable because she spends more time cursing, and arguing line calls than winning matches!!

i myself am black and i wud b the first person to cry racism IF IT WAS THERE which it so blatently wasnt.i dont see y people blame racism for everything that they dont like or that doesnt go their way. as for jen not being a likeable person that is a load of bull.wot about all those people she has helped like that man who had cancer and was dying she invited him to everyone of her matches and even dedicated her win to him.wen was the last time serena did anything remotely like that.jen is a nicer person so its not surprising she has more fans and serena is so up herself that im not surprised people boo her.if i was there i wud too!!!

"JEN IS GOD" so i expect that u will search deep to justify your god. Well, let's just say that "Jen isn't likeable when she is on the tennis court". does that sound o.k?? i expect u to be as partial as everyone else who is a fan of Jennifers. But really this is starting to bore me. I never intended for this thread to become a racial debate or an attack on Jennifers character. Don't reply!! Peace!!
