pro-Dushevina?:confused:

When she won the set all the people got up to cheer... i mean Venus is American:tape:

Despite all the black children in the ceremony i guess race harmony is still faraway over there...

I think they were giving vera a standing ovation for that passing shot on set point! :worship:

Oh shut up. They cheered because Vera hit a fantastic passing shot on the run, not because they are white supremacists.

The American crowds like their own. The loud mouths like Capriati and Roddicks. Those players the US crowd ALWAYS gets behind no matter how crass and rude they are on court. They like their own. Oh yeah and they root for the underdog {default answer}

Well, the U.S. Open crowd has a history of rooting against the Williams sisters, because I don't exactly remember Venus being an underdog against Justine......

Capriati vs. Serena.........

Today.......

I like Venus' dress though!:) I hope she fights backs and stages a comeback victory..it would be a huge shock and tremendous upset if she loses 1st round in the US open as the number 3 player in the world and 2 time US open Champ as well as 7 slams overall

actually the amaerican crowd is very pro american minus the WS.
although the last few years they've been more vocal since well there are no other us women to cheer for. Today it's just muted. no one is getting that much support.

So good for the tennis i guess but they should definitely give Venus more support imo :(

Justine vs. Venus 2007?

Jankovic vs. Venus 2007?

Would you cheer in an unforced error-filled match?

Hell I would give Venus more encouragement to play well!!!!! Would the Brits leave Andy Murray out to dry if he was playing badly? Okay, well, bad example, because that answer is in the tabloids the next morning calling him a Scotsman.

They think Dushevina is the underdog, and want to see a close match. They may want Venus to win but not in two easy sets. They want to see some tennis. Makes things exciting. That is all. Oh yeah, the amazing point. That is all.

And then would the Chinese leave Zheng or Na on their own if they aren't playing well? No! They'd yell their behinds off on any point that they won.

There is no way in hell they want this match to last longer.

exactly! after the way it went, with the weird foot faults and all, she would not leave the stadium alive:lol::tape:

and again it's not the support, it's the way they reacted... they got up and cheered, they wanted Dushevina to win, so absurd.

Well considering it's unlikely that anyone from here is actually in the crowd at the moment and (instead of watching the tennis they paid to go and see) is somehow accessing TF from their seat, I don't know why you are asking this question here. :confused:

SEE, AFTER THAT WINNER, the New York crowd gave two claps basically. And I hear more "Go Vera's" than "Go Venus's" in the crowd.

Placid....the match was stale, therefore the tennis was stale, but during that Glatch comeback in the first set, they were really supporting her. That I guess can be more forgivable because it's another American and you want to see her compete well to feel good about the future.

Because the all-white New York crowd only likes white people. New York really needs more diversity.
