But anyway, this result shows that Serena's dominating days are Anna Kournik-OVA. Everything I seen from her this week was truly dire, and losing to both VIP and Cornet back-to-back is a total low point.

Definitely true, to each their own I guess.

Tell me, of the 4 Grand Slams, which crowd has the earned the reputation of rudeness?
This reputation is well passed debate, it is universally accepted.


Now, Hugues , what do you think of this below?

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

You took my quote completely out of context, I said that it is how it is perceived from other people.

Wonderful to see Venus play at such a high level. Serving consistently big, moving out of the corners explosively, still extremely athletic, and was so patient in high-paced baseline rallies. None of those ridiculously low % plays we've seen the last two seasons due to her not being able to move or serve. A revelation.

Hopefully a decent Slam run can follow now.

Really?

I thought you guys thought the crowd reaction was perfectly OK and justifiable because they paied money to Serena vs-Venus and were robbed.
To be fair, I no longer watch IW since 2001 incident, but I have not heard they have come anywhere near to what they did to Venus, Serena and Richard in 2001.

No, IW crowd does not have a reputation of rudeness, though they can be racist if given the opportunity.

Of course that is how rudeness works?

You don't see people going around claiming "I am rude"; it is other people reaction that determine that.
You just admitted that you have been told you're rude, then you continued " it is really how we do in here.."
You are in fact saying the behavior which is called rude, is the norm in France.

What ? I was certainly not part of those ppl beside what they did can be seen as rudeness, it clearly was rude btw and yeah you can add racist to the list.
