Poor man, such heavy penalties for a simple (albeit inexcusable) mistake.

This "simple mistake" affected Venus' upset in round 2! :fiery:

I understand :sad: but really you'd do best to get over it, I'm sure Venus has.

an umpire can make a mistake. what was stupid was how Sprem and especially Venus didn't say anything. it's not as if he was challenged and refused to back down, as was the case with Mariana Alves at the US Open.

Oh please!

It's not stupid if you weren't
aware of a mistake! :retard:

Venus didn't realize and simply thought
she once again just lost track.

Karolina seemed to think from the expression
on her face but was confused as well.

And he's the one in charge of keeping score, so challenged
or not it ultimately falls on him and he suffered the consequences
deemed necessary by the committe.

As for Venus & Karolina, it wasn't an issue for
either and just media and people like these
making it into one.

It was a pretty big mistake to make but someone should've really told him at the time. I find it hard to believe that all the lines people, crowd, the people who were with Venus didnt notice it. They should've all made ted aware of his mistake

Exactly. He made a err in one of Venus' matches and is crucified for it. However, just as Richard said, it wouldn't have made a difference.

Venus was still playing like poo-poo, which has continued since. Karma is fickle thing.

He would've been crucified if it were any
top players match!

Venus & Richard said it didn't
cost her the match.

And both said everybody makes mistakes.


And wake from your dreamland sweetness as Venus'
overall play has picked up immensely since.

Oh btw,
Karma must have bitch slapping you
from the time you were born. :cool:
