they just emphasized how they behaved and that it was a shame and a sad day for tennis.

I was playing tennis during the match and have not watched it, but I did see the very end...and Mary Carillo said to put a thought in for Serena because she was up and ended up losing (and now I see part of her statement had to do with the crowd and all of that).

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

Between Mary Jo, Mary Carillo and Corny Fowler these were some of the words used:

1. ugly
2. sad
3. disappointing
4. the crowd turned around the tempo
5. uncalled for
6. Serena got affected by it
7. least favorite surface for Serena, crafty Henin, she didn't need another obstacle
8. really unfortunate

Thats a good summary, they just emphasized how sad of a day it was not only for tennis, but french fans because they are normally very knowledgeable about tennis, but also freindly and cordial. They pretty much said in so many words it was a disgrace.

Come back EVENTUALLY Cappy!! Ok this clearly was written back in a day when I still had faith..

Oh don't you know! That's how you root for the underdog!

I was upset that Serena let it get to her but now that I found out the chair umpire spoke with Justine about holding her hand up (and I don't know what was said but apparently Serena feels Justine lied which she did if she said she hadn't held her hand up) and Serena didn't get a first serve now I can see what really set her off. I wish it hadn't but it clearly effected her for a couple of games.

I'm not going to watch it either, I can't stand hostile crowds. I am not a fan of Martina's and I hated what they did to her in 1999 no matter how poorly she acted.

We don't know that the umpire spoke to Justine. That whole story is a very murky one.

But yes, the crowd WAS awful, was unfair, and the commentators were all rightly disturbed by it.

The chair umpire most definitely asked Justine if she had raised her hand, and the lying bitch shook her head and shrugged her shoulders indicating she had not done so.

They didn't show it on ESPN what the umpire did but I would think he had to have asked Justine if Serena calls her a liar in her press conference. That's sad and if Justine did she should be ashamed of herself.

"I would think he had to have asked?" We don't know for sure.. I'm going to go home and scan my tape..

My question is whether or not Serena will stop playing her due to the hostile crowds a la Indian Wells. She's not going to have many places to play at this rate
