Little remark...

Didn't the Americans booed a certain Nicolas Escudé when he was playing a tournament in the US this year?
Isn't he French?

I'm not saying I'm ok with it... Certainly not...

But if I reed some comments on the French audiance of American posters here... It's a bit strange...

What happened wasn't at all because of Serena being American (she got a warm reception in the earlier rounds) but because the crowd was rooting for the underdog who is also one of their absolute favorite after Amelie.

That's not what I wanted to say...

Most of the Serena-fans are mad because the French crowd booed when she was serving or when she made a mistake...
But the American crowd did the same in that match from Escudé...

I'm not saying it's about the French-American situation due to the war in Iraq, but they accuse the spectators of something that their own country people did...

I believe that Escude story was fabricated. I remember one of them was. ;)
