She would've won that third set 63 without the vileness of the crowd.

Henin blatantly cheating kills me every time. She had to cheat to win her first Grand Slam. :shrug: She had to have the crowd jeering Serena like that. :o

At least that will forever tarnish her legacy. As much as I respect what she did after that, that incident just puts an asterisk next to all of her Grand Slams for me. :help:

I agree. It's unfair to assume they are all French and it's unfair to assume that everyone in the crowd was behaving that way.

I don't think it had an effect on her other slams. But that event does tarnish her legacy and sort of ruined a bit of tennis history too. The fact that one of the greatest winning streaks ever could have become even greater, but was stopped by cheating doesn't look good for tennis. Henin played well in the match, and if she had won like that then fine, but the cheating just ruins everything.

Unfortunately, the Roland Garros crowds (I know they aren't all French) are the worst slam crowd in all of tennis. Sometimes they jeer a player for justified reasons, but most of the time it's absolutely ridiculous. I think in the case of Henin vs. Serena, the crowd supported Henin because she is a French-speaking player, and the 4-straight-slam-winning Serena had just beaten Mauresmo in the previous round. They did jeer Serena well before the hand incident too. It was unfortunate, because Henin played well, but both the hand incident and the crowd's behavior ruined the match for me.

There are numerous other examples of the RG crowds booing a player for no reason too. :shrug: I don't understand why they react this way so often :o

It's not all about that. You expect this in Davis or Fed Cup. Not routinely at a slam. Every once in a while, any crowd can get out of control (we've seen embarrassing behavior from the night crowds at the USO and AO-though alcohol probably has something to do with that too :lol:), but it seems to happen most often and usually without good reason at Roland Garros. If a player doesn't do anything to bother the crowd (besides just playing well), it's unacceptable that he/she would be treated with such a lack of respect.

I like Hingis, although I didn't like her in 1999 :lol:. She deserved to be booed by the crowd-not for challenging the call, but for the tantrum she threw after that. I still think the crowd was over-the-top. There wasn't any reason to keep booing her for the rest of the match.

Serena didn't deserve the treatment at all.

Anyway, we saw this again with Sharapova this year. She didn't deserve to be booed continuously during the match either :shrug:

French crowds are notorious for this. they let those awful children in who just scream and shout all the time and then make that ridiculous calling "noise". Even when Leconte made the final, they booed him almost every shot.

Those complaining about Henin "Cheating" should recall that Justine didn't walk around like she was crippled with dramatic acting scenes that would earn oscars in Hollywood movies, just to win a match unlike her opponent.

Sep 24th, 2008, 07:00 PM
i think Hingis only acted that way because she felt the crowd were against her, you know, im a big fan of hers, and at 18, to have the whole crowd against you, how else are you supposed to act? obviously inside her she was being ripped apart, so in her mind, she obviously couldnt win the crowd back, so she had to fight back, and she did so immaturely, but again at 18...thats the only way she knew how. The crowd treated a teenage girl unfairly i think.

So be that nice and remove yourself from that thread.

Martina didn't deserve this crap behaviour,neither did Serena and many many others. French crowd will never change and they'll always be this classless bunch of (mostly)French people booing everything they don't like.

by the way-Justine Henin is also classless and cheating tennis player and she for sure belongs to the crowd.She fits.

:rolleyes: How naive of you. I'm not saying that either player should or shouldn't have been criticized, but you clearly don't have all the facts.

I recommend you re-watch the 99 final to see how early in the match the crowd is jeering Martina, certainly not just when she was 2-5 down in the third. I also recommend you re-watch the 03 RG QF between Serena and Mauresmo as well as the whole match of Henin vs Williams. If someone beat up on Lindsay Davenport, while cursing her and showing as poor sportsmanship as Serena did against Mauresmo, and the US Open I KNOW that the reaction to that woman would be pretty nasty in the next round as well. Look what happened to Novak Djokovic this year.

as for hingis, she tought she will win that finale with closed eyes against veteran graff.She looked so arrogant that people prefered to cheer for steffi and then AGAINST her.
the day after they decided to cheer for her futur husband, andre agassi so you know the french crowd are quite logic in fact:lol::p
as for henin she was already popular for the french crowd because of french speaking but also because she always say in interviews how important is this tournament for her because of her mum memories...
They felt more close to her than with serena.And the fact serena behaved bad against local french player Amélie Mauresmo in quarter finale,The crowd didnt want her to win.It was like "a revenge".But Justine game is really appreciated there because of her fluidity and elegance.They like her.
And every year they cheered for her since then.

Martina said before that match, that Steffi was old and pass her prime, she went to the other side of the net to dispute a line call,and then she refused to play until the umpire came out, she took a ten minute break in the middle of the third set and came back with different clothes and hairdo, she served underhand twice,She slapped an umpire in the arm, she was a completely spoiled brat.

Thank You, Thank you, people seem to forget how rude Serena was to mauresmo, she humiliated her, and there's was no reason to do so, I remember thinking at the time , Serena stop, the French don't forget.

I watched the match and I didn't see how Serena was rude to Mauresmo; Serena was pumped up, talking to and motivating herself, and although at times her fist pumping was a bit over the top it did not warrant the reaction she got in her semi-final match up thereafter.

In the grand scheme of things, tennis is a game being crushed 6-1 6-1 is humiliation and a part of that game. So yeah, maybe in that light Serena was percieved as being mean and rude for thrashing Mauresmo, but being nice doesn't get the job done.

All this REALLY shows is how classless the French Open crowd were in their inability to accept that Amelie Mauresmo was crushed.

Another thing I want to point out is how elegant Serena was in that match. Not only did she shake Justines hand and smile, she also waved to the crowd. In her post interview, Serena gave Justine credit and moved on.

When things get tough, it REALLY shows your true character and in that instance it showed Serenas; it's just a shame only few realise this.

Couldn´t agree more with this post, Serena only lost because that hostile classless crowd threw her concentration off, and then her opponent clearly cheated on that umpire´s face, who was also a idiot to let it happen... I remember, Serena was right about a call and the crowd booed her, because her opponent didn´t believe her, unfortunately Henin is gone, luckily for her that won´t eat more bagels
Regarding Hingis, she was devastated by the crowd behaviour, because she was young and couldn´t ignore then, RG crowd is the worst, they even rooted against their own, Mary Pierce
But Maria put them in their places: Allez up your fucking ass!

hum...lis ce qui est expliqué plus haut et tu comprendras peut etre comment serena s'est comporté comme une haineuse vis à vis d'amelie et a voulu l'humilier car comme par hasard la semaine davant amélie l'avait battue à rome.
C'etait tout simplement de la mechanceté gratuite et de la mesquinerie.
Mais tu sais si le public français te degoute à ce point pourquoi tu changerais pas ta nationalité?c'est vrai ils sont affreux les français méritent pas d'avoir un tel tournoi sur leur sol:rolleyes:

hum tu sais que le tennis a été en quelque sorte été inventé par les français?Hum vu les messages que tu poste jpense pas que tu saches.
Le jeu de paume pour pas m'eterniser.Cherche ça te fera de l'exercice.

French crowd rocks:cool:

Pathetic post. If you think Serena acted "badly" against Mauresmo, you're just way too sensitive. All the players try to win as quickly and efficiently as possible. So what if Serena pumped herself up during the match? As you said, she had lost to Amelie 2 weeks before that, so she knew she had to play well to win. The behavior of the Roland Garros crowd during the Serena/Henin match was not acceptable, no matter what kind of lame excuses you give.

Hingis totally deserved it.

With Serena, it was a little bit over the top, but she did act quite arrogantly in her previous match, and the crowd simply doesn't like that. :shrug:

I'll take the French crowd any day over the boring Wimbledon crowd that only comes alive when British players are playing.

Martina said before that match, that Steffi was old and pass her prime, she went to the other side of the net to dispute a line call,and then she refused to play until the umpire came out, she took a ten minute break in the middle of the third set and came back with different clothes and hairdo, she served underhand twice,She slapped an umpire in the arm, she was a completely spoiled brat.

:lol::lol::lol:

Pretty much.

Serena after the QF match:

"She did the best she could do today. Maybe next year she can do a little bit better"

:haha: :haha:

martina deserved it. she was so disrespectful(spoiled brat!)i remember that match like it was yesterday.

serena didn't. that went way beyond rooting for justine. there were other motivations behind their treatment towards her IMO :tape:
Do you need to be told the staring and anger Serena displayed in her QF match against Mauresmo one round earlier?
Not that she should have gotten booed by her behaviour in the Henin match, but she bought her ticket with her Mauresmo match.

lol.. I'm surprised the williams sisters don't boycott the french instead of Indian Wells.

Anyhow, I really don't like the behavior of the French crowd. It's very unnerving.
