Watering the Tennis Courts at RG

They really watered thoes tennis courts to slow the ball in momo's favor. I wonder if they will do the same thing on Thursday. They will do anything to prevent Serena from winning no wonder Serena was so angry she had a right to be pissed. Bunch of cheaters.

Well, normally when it's warm and hot, the courts get dry, you know? That's when it's all dusty and you slide on every step you take. So maybe that's the reason why they watered the courts
And what are you whining about? Serena beat Amelie so stop finding lame excuses

I do think leslie has a point here. If it would be the other way around (serena that would be helped with wathering the court instead of Momo), do you really think they would have wathered it? Thought so

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Didn't you see how Serena was looking at the court and how upset she was. Why would you water the court before the players go on it is also dangerous. I guess they were hoping she would slip and not continue to play. I have never seen Serena so angry. Even walking back to her chair she mumbled something and grab her towel and threw it over her lap. That was so wrong what they did.

Apparently they also stuffed bananas up the tail pipe of the people carrier that was to bring Serena to Roland Garros that morning in an attempt to stop her even getting to the match. Oh wait no that was Beverly Hills Cop.

I remember now, what they really did was fill the cellar of the hotel where Serena is staying full of barrels of gunpowder that they were going to light and, and....no wait that was Guy Fawkes.

Well I know THEY did something, because THEY just had because THEY are part of THAT group. Itsa conspiracy I tells ya.

I think so, I hope so, but having been vitness to how ice on speedskating arenas can be manipulated to give certain skaters the best result, i am not sure.
but for the sport of tennis good reputation let this ball drop dead. Play, don´t worry

Well the commentators on TV said that they had watered the court just before the match to slow it down.

It's also a safety matter..when the clay is very dry it's really dangerous to slip away.

yes, obviously this seed for leslie was planted when Mary Carillo said the very same thing and you could see the reaction of Serena and along with Mary's comment, it looks HELLA suspicious to me. I know they water the courts in the morning but is this the only court that was watered in between matches? If so, that's bullshit.

Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

All courts are watered in between matches but they were very "generous" with the water on centre court yesterday.

But as always although you have a point, you say these kind of ridiculous things "They were hoping she would slip" Please

And you seem to be one hell of a mindreader
