Exclamation Arguing Schiavone-Bovina!!

Did anyone see the match? At the handshake after the match, Schiavone scream to Bovina and complained about that Bovina a lot of times when Schiavone served she hold her hand up to say she isn't ready...this was the 2. time Bovina did it (1.time match against Capriati in Moscow)
What do you think about this?
I don't think Elena is a bad person but really this is unfair.

When a player is playing too fast(JCAP or Frances) it is simply normal to put your hand up! Panova does it too and against Capriati, it works because it pisses her off.. Bovina has every fucking right to do this!

Lena does that quite often... she did this numerous times in Toronto.

I really doubt it is gamesmanship on Lena's part... maybe she's just not ready to return.

She should have shoved her at the net and the 2 of them could have fought. Women's tennis needs this kind of headline-grabbing stuff.

Wouldn't be much of a fight... Lena is a giant, you know.

It's the right thing to do against a player who plays too fast for you. Never let your opponent control the tempo of the match.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

wow i'm surprised.

I saw Bovina this summer. She is very sweet. She interacts with her fans and she is funny too. Check out my pics of her on my Rogers AT&T Cup album on wtnphotos.com

Lena complained about Schiavone's grunts too

one time she let ball go cos Schiavone's grunts sounded like she was saying "out"

Lena got Aced by Schiavone and she had her hand up, she wasn't ready but point counted.

I guess I missed that part.....hahhaha, would have been fun. Seeing that Lena is almost twice as tall as Francesca....me thinks Cesca would have gotten mowed down.

Always bet on black!

if Elena wasn't given a time warning, she was within 12-15 second allowed to returner to prepare... it's called reasonable pace.

Vassilissa is my girl............
