They didn't like Venus and yet they went bonkers cheering for Sandra who was louder? No. The guys in Hisense are drunk and Australians don't seem to like Vee.

But Vika took it in her stride and laughed it off in her post match on court interview.

"If it's not Australian--hate it."

True this, but not completely. We're so multicultural now... it's becoming a bit crazy.

However we're very patriotic, opinionated and I've noticed we go for the underdog a lot (underdog in physical stature and personality)

However, there are many bogans/rednecks/drunks around and sometimes it reflects Aussies badly.

Well Lleyton is one of the shorter players on the tour.

But then again, many Aussies can't stand him coz of his bratty attitude. Just because the commentators root for him, doesn't mean the rest of the country does.

More Aussies like Kim more then him.

They can cheer for whoever they want to.. they paid for the seats.

Yeh, thats why players like Clijsters, Federer, Nadal, Ivanovic are so popular here. I think it has to do more with personality.

There is always someone in the crowd who thinks they can get a laugh out of mocking a player.

Agree. Sandra's screams were so unnatural it's disgusting to hear.

They aren't hating on Sharapova? She is getting tons of cheers and supports...they were just having a laugh...stop being so dramatic and get over it..besides thy have all probably had too many beers anyway, duh.

Also crowd was cheering for Jovanovski against Zvonareva, and Bojana was really loud...they just like the underdog. Stop trying to make things seem more dramatic than it really is...wait this is TF, in one ear out the other...off to your next apparent controversy people! :)

Melbourne crowd has obviously some serious problem and arguable don't have enough love and respect for WTA former #1 players, which they deserve for sure.

Are they really expect of every women which once reach #1 WTA spot to be perfect person, almost saint or angel or whatever??? There is no excuse why only Clijsters and Ivanovic of all active former #1 players are loved and supported at AO all the time, every year, but not others. They ALL deserve at least big respect!

Does the AO crowd hate screamers?Backclash is inevitable.

The Ozzies might as well take the matter into their own hands since the lily-ass goons of the WTA aren't doing much about it.

I don't think the grunting is an issue - Monica Seles was the most popular player in Melbourne during her time. They loved her in Australia.

True, they do really just like the underdog. They can support whoever they want to.

But the mock grunting was pretty stale and disrespectful, most of all the one who yelled 'Shut up Sharapova'. They do seem to like the cheap jokes. Like last year when Serena or Venus would play, they would yell 'Go ______ (whichever WS wasn't playing)' a lot. Overheard a conversation today about someone paying someone else $5 to yell that last year. Not cool to the players.

You know, that characteristic isn't exclusive to Australians :rolleyes:.

I'm seriously sick of all this generalizing. Generalizing breeds prejudice. Prejudice breeds discrimination. Discrimination breeds hate. And there's already enough of that in the world.

it seems they like schiavone who is a big screamer as well!

personally one thing i don't like about sharapova is not the screaming but the time she takes to serve, particularly if you consider that she makes 10 df per match, it's a little bit discouraging if you root for her
