Dias, the chair umpire did he...
I don't speak French so I'm not too sure, but during
the match did Dias the Chair umpire ever tell the
crowd not to make noises during the rallies?
I heard the Si viou plas "Please";but he didn't make much
of an effort to stop the crowd noises. I bring this up because
good chair umpires wait or forces the crowd by scolding them
to shut up during a player's serve, or rallies.
If there's any finger point at Serena vs Justine. I blame
Dias for not making much of an effort to shut the crowd
up. I also think he should've just given Serena the first
serve. The crowd seemed to have gotten louder by that
point of the match, and it was getting too confusing who
put up their hand or who wanted to serve.
