Reading some of these posts it is obvious that Williams fans will try and make any excuse for any defeat that Serena may have. So what if the crowd was rough, that is part of sports. Much worse has happened in tennis. Back in the old days when Jimmy Connors faced anyone at the US Open it was like a crazy mob attacking one player. It adds drama and excitement to the matches and makes it much more fun to watch. Since Serena is basically cheered against everywhere. It wouldn't surprise me at all for crowds to try and get rough with her again. It obviously worked today so why not try it again.
