Atleast the crowd is cheering for

the american Amber Liu. Too bad we cant see past the color boundary here in the US to cheer for the W/S. But instead they(commentators) applaud the for foreigner instead of rooting for their home person.

actually you have just given reason for the American's cheering for the Williams opponet, they always cheer the underdog and they are doing the same thing tonight. Even though she isn't white.

They don't cheer for the underdog when Capriati or Davenport play. I didn't hear any GO Callens from the Americans earlier.

Maybe it's this exact response that keeps the negativity going? Why let "them" know that it bothers you... perhaps they will do it more since you're obviously affected?

Just a thought.

LOL We have SOME Williams fans who claim that the SISTERS are THE MOST POPULAR players on the WTA tour and then the same fans whine about how little crowd support they enjoy even when they play in their OWN HOME COUNTRY where they are supposedly "very popular" . Its really funny

Bored now. Don't you have a new tune to sing or are you a broken record like everyone else in this thread?

I agree. They recently showed a replay of Venus' US Open semifinal win against Martina. Venus was booed off the court - how rude.

The williams sisters are the most popular player in the media and press, not in the crowd. Just because your popular doesn't necessarily mean that you are liked.

Exclamation

The sisters are liked by the people who count, not some of the trash that unfortuantely fumugates the tournaments they play.

That was 3 US Opens ago. Many New Yorkers didn't like Hingis at that time.

Why can't people cheer for whoever they like, even if that player may not be from their own country?
