Sharapova, Azarenka, Michelle Larcher de Brito and Serena Williams - grunting is crass not class.

Oh Putintseva in all her glory, the moment before the handshake with Taylor Townsend after Australian Open jr final was epic. Taylor walking to the net while Yulia was smashing her raquet was hilarious (and Taylor is a brave girl, because Yulia was in psycho mood).
To be fair the hanshake was perfectly ok, and i think she congratulate Taylor.
I think Yulia is a spoiled brat, but i don't think she is mean, probably with time she will improve her behaviour (well, it's difficult that get worse)

Clijsters,Henin,Hingis,Capriati,Stosur,Kerber and Azarenka

Clijsters? Stosur? I'm not the biggest fan of this girls but i never watch any reprobable behaviour in them.

And Hingis was a spoiled brat when she was young but she mature and lately her behaviour was really good (and you can say the same about Venus)

Serena's case is discussable. Sometimes Serena has a very good attitude in defeat whereas sometimes she goes nuts.

Serena was very classy with Stosur after the Us Open final despite being a little crazy during the match for example.

Vika for her total disrespect to the audience and for her bullying the opponents. And for her constant dramas.
My fave, Aga, used to be in that category too for her frequent negative attitude, but I see a huge improvement recently. She actually went all the way to the opposite spectrum. A complete 180 degrees turn! She must have hired some really good PR consultant :). I wish Vika hired the same consultant too....

The Queen's name shouldn't even be mentioned in this flop of a thread. She's only had two incidents in which she has acted out because she was CHEATED. Other than that she has always been fair to the the lesser gerls, she has never cheated, and even after crushing defeats has never refused to shake another player's hand.

We all watch top players more often than Putintseva and Rodionova, so it's normal that top players' classless behavior annoy us more.

If you make a thread about annoying celebrations, people will bitch about Petra's bark, Ana's ajdeing, Domi's pome, although I'm sure that Putintseva and Khromacheva are more annoying by far. But if they ever become top players, they won't be as bratty and annoying as they are now.

She takes those after she wins sets too. And most of the times she takes those injury timeouts she really is injured. She's not Mother Teresa but she's far from classless.

Serena has had both moments of classlessness and class. In the "Hawkeye Match" against Capriati, she did well to hold it together -- I think if I were in her shoes I would have completely lost it. She also showed a lot of class when Sabine got injured this past year at Charleston.

She really only had those two incidents and that's it. Posters on this board were laughing when she said: "I never complain!", but she's right, she almost never complains. :shrug: She barely uses hawk-eye, she rarely questions the calls. I realize that her outbursts were classless, but it's not fair to describe her as classless based on 2 outbursts in a 17 years long career. And she's been through a lot, really.

Btw, after both of those incidents, she was really classy and nice to her opponents.

This. This. This. This. This.


It's so easy for people to try and define her character based off of 2 negatives incidents, instead of YEARS of wonderful gamesmanship.

And another thing. Why the fuck does it matter?! They are professional athletes. It's intense out there, a battlefield. They don't have to be "classy," whatever that even means.

You know, Aaron Rodgers is so classy on the field. So is Clay Matthews. Blah blah blah. I never hear stupid things like that being said about (American) Football.

First of all, there are LOADS of players (the vast majority actually) who have had very long careers and have never had disgusting outbursts of this kind. In fact I don't remember any player ever physically threatening ppl like that or berating an umpire for like 10 minutes for doing her job well. Just one incident like that is one too many...

Second of all, Serena has shown her classlessness waaaay more times than 2. She makes disrespectful or spiteful comments in her press conferences or interviews on a regular basis. And it's fine if you're ok with supporting classless ppl but that's not everyone's case.

And I don't want to name all the players who were more than rude to lines people, chair umpires, but they never get as much shit as Serena does. Coincidence? I don't think so. She crossed the line, it was an awful behavior, but no, you can't describe her as a demon because of that. We all have outbursts, we are all classless now and then, but it looks like it's the worst sin ever only if it happens in front of camera.

On a regular basis? Come on. She's simply honest, yes, she was mocking the ranking system and, yes, Safina didn't create that system, but she's entitled to her opinion.

And it's fine if you're ok with supporting classless ppl but that's not everyone's case.

It's also fine that you despise Serena, but it's not everyone's case and that's it.

By the way, I'm done with commenting on Serena and her outbursts in this thread, I'm not gonna be dragged into some endless discussion about Maria, Serena, racism and who knows what else. And that's how it mostly ends.

When you cheat, it's affecting your opponent, but outbursts... it only affected Serena. By the way, I'm not that judgemental and I never hated Henin because of that incident. Shit happens.

So you think swearing at the crowd is not classless? Well, I suppose someone who was dragged up like you would think like that :tape: Plus, what about her comment "Is she back in Poland yet"? That's also classless.

Considering Serena has been on the tour much longer than Maria, I think Maria beats Serena hands down when it comes to classlessness.

Hey, you should be happy, at least Maria can beat Serena at something on a tennis court :bounce::tape:

This..... coming from a supporter of Elena Dementedeva:lol: The same player who was classless enough (due to bitterness) to make unsubstantiated allegation that Richard Williams arranges who win between his 2 daughters each time they play.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Any wonder then why a mediocre player like Dementedeva retired frustrated, bitter, angry & slamless? When u hate ppl for what they have that u don't have, u'll always end up like dementedeva:lol::lol::lol:

Nalbandian did get LOADS of crap for what he did and it wasn't even on purpose so it's not comparable whatsoever to what Serena did and said. Sure some players are rude to umpires and linesmen, but I don't see them physically threaten them or berate them with childish nonsensical insults for like 10 mins. Sure many players/ppl have outbursts, are they all equally as bad as what we saw from Serena? Not even kinda close.


On a regular basis? Come on. She's simply honest, yes, she was mocking the ranking system and, yes, Safina didn't create that system, but she's entitled to her opinion.

It is very possible to be honest and say exactly what you think without hurting anyone or laughing at anyone or being disrespectful, it is called class and many players have it.


It's also fine that you despise Serena, but it's not everyone's case and that's it.


I don't have any problem with that but just don't try to push nonsensical things like Serena is classy or nice or anything like that when she is probably the worst in the wta when it comes to that.

I think you need to understand that "LOADS of players" haven't been robbed the way Serena has in tennis matches. How many players do you know have had points robbed off them at a QF stage of a slam (US Open 2004)? There is a reason why Serena feels so hard done by nowadays which explains her huge (and 'unclassy') outbursts. Not that I am justifying her behaviour, but there is a reason for things, and so it explains why others haven't had the same outburts as Serena.

Hmm, well good thing I'm not racist.. and I would say sending a douchy derisive badrep about someone's parents who died recently is also up there.. just sayin'

BTW both those things you said about Maria were called for and deserved so what you're saying is crap and irrelevant as usual.

So you think calling a black person a gorilla is not racist? Oh really. I wonder if the KKK would agree with you. I bet they would.

Not with mulitple line calls at a QF stage of a slam they haven't. You obviously didn't read my post. But if you want to be obnoxious about it, then that's your perrogative. How ironic....

The most classless thing that Serena does on a regular basis is not letting her opponent shake the umpire's hand first when Serena is the winner. It is common courtesy to let the losing player shake the umpire's hand first. Other than this and her various outbursts she is nothing compared to some of the other aforementioned players! :help:

Yes players have been robbed on big stages before (and that's irrelevant cause a stage you would consider smaller can be just as important to a less successful player)

And like I said that's totally irrelevant, what happened in 2004 (and the umpire then) had nothing to do with 09 and 11 and the ppl that were involved then.

I was referring to other types of excuses, for example, she never blamed the injuries or her health problems for losses. Also, she never blamed the surface or weather for her loss. Same goes for Maria. It has more to do with attitude than class, if they were any different, we wouldn't see them lifting slam trophies this year.

About lucky shots, that was completely unnecessary and it wasn't the true. About saying that she played at her 20%? IDK. Harsh, but it was the true. I have no problem with that, but I do think that mentioning lucky shots is not fair to an opponent. Generally, I hate mentioning luck when it comes to tennis. The years of following Ana and her repetitive comments about "luck" made me hate that word.

lol @ the poster singularising azarenka to be the worst in this department with the videos. I guess he mistook the thread to be which player you hate the most. In no way i am implying vika is classy on court coz i dnt thnk she is,but i also think she isnt the worst and those videos dont contribute much. All of them are heat of the moment reactions and she herself has admited she has temper management issues.correct me if i am wrong,but i dnt remember her ever saying anything disrespectful or sarcartic towards a fellow player in cool head or off court,which i personally find less classy than an heat of the moment outburst. Just my two cents.agree to disagree.

Hmm Maria and even Vika can't even compare to Serena here though. In fact I'm not quite sure what you are refering to about Maria here.

Ok we know you are still mourning, we understand. So what Serena did at the 2004 US Open wasn't classy. And remember when she lost to Clijsters US Open 2009 after the point penalty she even said that no one should take the win away from Kim as she is not at fault. At the US Open 2011 she even said that Stosur played really well and didn't take anything away from her. And how she held her composure after Stosur cheated her at Sydney when it was a let cord and Stosur knew it and didn't admit it. And at Indian Wells being booed why you are playing and remain classy. And if her opponent makes a good shot she applauds them.

Oh sorry I thought her crazy psycho outbursts at the USO were in 09 and 11, my mistake!

And BTW yes loads of players have been robbed points and never reacted like that.

Nope, no one was ever robbed like her in the US Open 2004. No umpire will overrule a ball that is inside the line and was called-in at the farthest line from the umpire. I mean no umpire, well maybe Alves on Serena.

Yes players have been robbed on big stages before (and that's irrelevant cause a stage you would consider smaller can be just as important to a less successful player)

And like I said that's totally irrelevant, what happened in 2004 (and the umpire then) had nothing to do with 09 and 11 and the ppl that were involved then.

It is totally relevant for Serena as much us Indian Wells is relevant until today, Where Indian Wells is trying everything just to get them back except accepting it was their fault everything happened the way it did.

She invented it what are you talking about :lol:

Class has so many levels. Part of it is about playing fair. Part of it is giving your opponents credit at the end of the match. Part of it is treating the umpires, ball kids, and linespeople with respect. Part of it is giving it your best for the fans who paid their money to watch star athletes.

I've always been taught that at the end of a match or competition, you look your opponent in the eye and say, 'Good match'. You don't have to be kissing and hugging everyone, but a civil 'good match' is quite sufficient.

I don't really have an exact opinion on who is classy, but I know of a few instances that I consider 'unclassy'. Obviously 'the hand' was an unclassy moment, as was the 2006 Australian Open F when it seemed like Justine quit and got injured out of nowhere and robbed Mauresmo of her 'moment'. The Sharapova/Serena YEC F in 2004 - when Maria won the match against a clearly injured opponent and starts yelling and screaming and hugging her dad as if Serena was fit and the match was beyond tough at the end (which it wasn't).

I don't consider the 2004 US Open QF unclassy, at all. Serena was robbed of many points in the deciding set, and rightfully so. I do, however, think she doesn't give credit to her opponents enough, even when credit is due. Serena and her fans seem to think that Serena always plays at 10% when she loses, when there are some matches where she has just had to say 'too good' and that be that.

Sharapova gives credit to her opponents, as does Kim. So, I enjoy both of them for that. Venus is a God in the sport.

Have you seen every tennis match that ever happened?? Venus was probably robbed in a worse way at Wimbledon against Sprem actually and hardly even reacted. And anyway this is irrelevant like I said, 09 and 11 have nothing to do with 04 and if Serena blows up all the time because of some stuff that happened an eternity ago and that has nothing to do with the situation, it still makes her classless and she still needs anger management classes.


It is totally relevant for Serena as much us Indian Wells is relevant until today, Where Indian Wells is trying everything just to get them back except accepting it was their fault everything happened the way it did.

Why would it be relevant? It's not the entire USO organisation that made that call in 2004, only one person, if Serena wants to start blaming ppl for what someone else did, not only is she classless but also childish and deranged.

Name them please...

Well, how can Venus react if she didn't even notice it, she didn't even now that the point was given away, Venus only found out after the match. So find another. And At USO, they should all be blamed there were so many calls that weren't even close called, the USO organizers should have stepped up, that's their job to see if the umpire is doing their job that is part of it. In case you didn't know that organizers can step in, every commentator is shouting for them to get involved because it was getting so ridiculous.

No I've named 4, like another poster just said again, she threatened to get MJM in the locker room and said she better not come to the net, there is a video of it p. 4 of this thread or the other class thread. And I mentionned the super used gif over here, don't you know what I'm talking about? Some other ppl here mentionned the "8000 notches below her normal level" comment and the "lucky shots" comment etc. etc. etc. the list is neverending.

The point is, every player has been cheated or received some bad line calls at some point in their career and none of them has reacted quite like Serena did. (many years later :lol: ) And can you please stop with the 100% irrelevant USO 2004, having something not cool happen to you at a tournament does not justify you physically threatening a linesjudge that's doing their job and wasn't even there 5 years later. Or endlessly berating an umpire is the stupidest most childish way, who again, is just doing her job like she should 7 years later.

Disgusting language - completely classless for a professional :(

Young Serena was very classless in her pressers after losses. She never seemed to give her opponent credit, rather she spoke about her injuries and her horrible play on that day. To her credit, she is much more respectful and appreciative of her opponents' qualities now. Also, she has always been classy to her opponents during the match. Even when she lost the match on that infamous (and unfair) footfault call, she went across the net and warmly congratulated Kim on her victory.

What death threat are you talking about? She got angry as any other athletes. Big deal. Tennis is a sport now you know and not play in night gowns any more.

Who is to say what is "classy"? On this board with so many hypersensitive posters I am sure every player could be deemed classless at some point. I think many of the ladies are simply honest. I love Maria. One of the many things I love is her honesty, even about herself at times. She can be a "bitch" sometimes and she is honest about it. I like that.

Yeah Serena's had her moments where you could say she isn't classy. But she always treats opponents with respect on court. She even managed to 'shake' Henin's hand in 2003 RG.

If this was two years ago I would have said Vika, probably not so much these days.

Shit happens. I seem to recall Sharapova directing an overhead at Serena in the AO 2007 final and hitting her. Was it nice? Nope. Classy? Definitely not. Does it speak to her overall character? Wouldn't say so. Nor does her "this is my home" or classless YEC 2004 final behaviour, or "allez up your fucking ass" or anything else. She gets a lot of passes and so should other players.

But I am not generally bothered by what people see as "classless" behaviour. Stop being so sensitive.

maria (swearing at crowd/umpire, raised her hand when her opponent was serving and lied about it a couple of time, "this is my home" in face of Dani, the Golovin incident etc...)

Honey, this swearing has happened only twice; and the French crowd was gagging for it. Which are these 'a couple of time' please do enlighten me? I can only think of that Peer match but strangely there is not a single video showing the accident so it does not count. No receipts = never happened. 'This is my home' was truly vile. Golovin incident !?! Maria didn't even realise that Tatiana was on the floor at first, they had a brief exchange at the net and Pova did seem genuinly concerned. Not to mention that they went out on a date recently after that and seemed quite friendly. Excuse me but I will take Golovin's behaviour over your bitterness as an evidence. Martha ain't no saint that is for certain but do not lie when citing her classless outbursts.

:lol::lol::lol::lol: That incident really happened and I don't really know why Maria did it, she was never going to lose this match.
Anyway she was really young back then (19) so I think people can let this go.
As for what happened with the French crowd MASSIVE :lol: if anything, insulting them is the right approach and I know what I'm talking about. As soon as French crowd sees you as a victim you're screwed, Maria never let that happen and I'm really glad about the way she handled them.

Do you guys really think that Serena's tears in 2003 touched the audience, neither will those from 2012 btw and we will see that next year. This crowd is rude and the only way to interfere with them is acting rude as well.

I think at the time they were both managed by the same people and it was a win/win situation : it calmed down the critics and in the same time tati got some exposure and franckly she seemed quite amused by the whole situation and being the "nice one "of the story (maria always wanted to be THE one the medias were talking about so each time another cute blond was taking a bit of the spotlight she was annoyed and she showed some animosity.it happened with Vika too).

Anyway, I do believe that they are on friednly terms as Deborah said and that the whole 'incident' was blown out of proportion. To speculate whether or not that was a PR stunt is pointless. I do agree that Maria was quite starstruck back in 04-06, not to the extent you are implying but she did seem too much into being a celebrity. Luckily, she has grown out of it opposed to some other people. Now she is quite the hipster and does events only for business purposes.

Never defended Serena.
You have never defended Serena, but I will. :shrug:

I have a few words for some of the posters in here, but I will keep them to myself.

Sharapova, Azarenka, Michelle Larcher de Brito and Serena Williams - grunting is crass not class.


Just when was the last time you heard Serena Grunt

I don't know what matches you have been watching

But Serena doesn't grunt anywhere near the shriekers

you mentioned. She has all but stopped for the last

year and a half.

Sorry, but have to say it is current #1, Vika Azarenka, she can be so annoying sometimes.

And like I stated earlier, these people calling Serena classless throughout all that she's endured...? :facepalm:
ANY athlete would have lost it sooner, but not Serena.
Her ONLY offense is waiting far too long for all of the BS to consume her before releasing it.


To all of the screwball posters in here calling Serena classless...

I have to admit you are correct. I just heard Serena roar

on the court. I was so surprised she did that as it was

the first time I heard her do that. That primodial, from

the bottom of her gut roar was quite emphatic.

It happened when she hit that final ACE to win the Gold

medal at the Olympics. But that wasn't a hindrance, that

was a message. The Queen of the jungle had already gotten

her prey



Carillo made a point of it going off the air when

she said " heres another look at the final point

with commentary by Serena Williams "

The umpire deserved it...and you said it yourself: it ain't classless if it's deserved.

How did she deserve it!?! She was doing her job as she should, it wasn't deserved. Serena just went psycho, no suprise there.

Even Serena herself would admit (in whatever classless manner) that her sister is the classy one.

Yes she deserved it. Of the 2 options Asderaki had (a let or forfeit), she chose the harshest so she deserved the harshest response. Nothing new there. It was Serena's first hindrance in the match and it was unintentional. You wouldn't be smiling if your work supervisor fired you because you intentionally spill coffee on your co-worker even if the rule gave her that option. At the FO few months later the same Asderaki chose a let on what she judged as a Razzano hindrance and didn't forfeit the point in Serena's favor why?

So when can one complain to the umpire then? Because according to you not even when they miss countless of calls ( '04 u.s. open) it still is no good. :lol:

Hmm I don't remember saying it wasn't of for Servena to complain at the USO 04, I clearly said a couple times that 04 had nothing to do with 09 and 11.

Because there are two different categories of hindrance; Asderaki did not have two options - there are separate rulings for deliberate vs. unintentional hindrance. This topic has been beaten to death and the next afterlife on this forum.

A shout of come on is deemed an intentional hindrance because the action (saying come on) is intentional, whether or not the intent to hinder is actually intentional. That's a point penalty. Verbal utterances of pain (in Razzano's case) are treated under the same rule as if a ball falls out of your pocket or something: the first instance is a let and a warning while you're docked a point for each subsequent time.

You can take several seats.

The frustration of seeing a repeat of '04 in her eyes, boiled over. So it's linked together.
Her reaction was unfortunate, but it's deeper frustration.

Inspired by the "classiest" thread :oh:

Serena, Shazzapova, Aza, Capriati, and Henin tied in my book :oh:
