I am not being sarcastic, I really feel this way.
Although I do get pissed at the crowd cheering against Serena, then that makes me passionnate as well to pull even MORE for Serena....thus you end up with a "rowdier" atmosphere and a more fun match to watch.
The crowd, whether you feel they are disrepsectful or not, should boo, hiss, cheer, and do whatever they want, it's their right, in my opinion (and, also whether or not this crowd was disrespectful is an opinion as well).
Furthermore, unless you are like 17 or 16, I could understand the argument for not having a team to rely on for support....but once you turn 18, you are an adult.
Only YOU can be held responsible for how YOU feel....and I pretty much think Serena feels the same way. You didn't hear her say, "Woe is me, the crowd was the reason I lost the match. I hope they ban speaking during matches."
She's a woman....she'll cry, as would most humans with emotions would, and she'll get over it tomorrow.
Loves of my life....
