LOL... Serena's almost winner

Hilarious.
Even the chair umpire smiled.

If you didn't see it, Sveta had a mishit and Serena went for the winner.
She thought she had it and yelled Come On a little too prematurely since Sveta got to it.

The chair called hinderance and Serena immediately apologized.

Re: LOL... Serena's almost winner

Serena yelled 'Com'n" before Sveta hit it back.. She would not though be able to put it in play, so she would have won the point.. should she have kept her mouth shut..

Damn! I missed it again when it was actually played here on my TV (since it was aired like a couple minutes slower).

Re: LOL... Serena's almost winner

LOL that was so funny

Serena hit a shot that she thought was going to be a winner and screamed 'CMON!'... but then Svetlana got it back in court. HAHA!

Asderacki had to call 'hindrance' but everyone was laughing.

Re: LOL... Serena's almost winner

Serena almost hit an winner, and shouted come-on. But sveta somehow got it back. So the umpire told to replay the point since the 'come-on' was an hindrance. Everyone started laughing.

Re: LOL... Serena's almost winner

Serena hit a very good forehand that looked for sure like it'd be a winner, and screamed come on very loudly after she hit it, but Sveta got it back so they just replayed the paid.

Serena immediately said "Sorry, sorry"

Re: LOL... Serena's almost winner

what would happen if Serena did the same again? if a cap falls of they replay the point, then lose the point if it happens again, would he same apply here?

Re: LOL... Serena's almost winner

The point had to be replayed: hinderance, because serena shouted come on when she thought she had a winner but svetlana could still get the ball back.
