Oracene is full of crap!!!!

What she said about the fans being "ignorant" and not knowing the "class and etiquete" of tennis.........she needs to turn around and teach her daughters some of that first.

Good luck to Lleyton,Tim,Kim,andJustine!

Venus has always been respectful, I think.

Serena, though, often dismisses people - like she did at the end of the match today. I agree with Oracene that the French fans were too hard on Serena (who, by the way, was correct in every line call she argued)...still, Serena would have shown more class by being respectful of Justine instead of sinking to her level.

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

Ok I usually don't post but here go's.

I really feel the need to talk about
"by the way the fans paid for their tickets so they can boo and snear whoever the hell they want"
that comment. So that means I can go to any movie theatre and pay for my ticket and scream my head off at some poor person just because?

Its really ausing because if it was reversed and Justine was booed, we would be reading how rude and ignorant the fans were. Most of Justine fans are convert Hingis fans who always complained about how the French treated their poor Marty. I think Williams fans hve the right to express this same emotion.

OK, then let's call a apade a spade... If it is rude for fans to chear Serena's mistakes, it is just as, if not more rude for SERENA to yell come on and cheer when her opponents make a mistake. Let's not be hipocrits folks... It is one thing to yell come on when you hit a winner, but it is just plain rude when you scream it when your opponent makes a mistake!!! Serena got back today everything she puts out all the time. SUCKS doesn't it!!

I think Serena's interview and her on court behaviors prove that she has tennis etiquette.

Cappy4ever, players yell all the time when others make a mistake. This almost always happens in high pressure situations. You will have a hard time finding Serena cheering her opponents mistakes when she is up 6-3 5-2!

Besides, when that happens, she is not so much as cheering on the mistakes as she is pumping herself up. Every point counts in tennis and every point won is a step closer to achieving your goals. She is just cheering on her dreams...

I'm not going to say that serena has no etiquette (i'm nog going to say she do has either => to dangerous in this place) but what does this article say about her etiquette???

It just shows that a hostile crowd does touch her, that's all

Oracene was spot on. Good for her.
