The infamous foot-fault , the hindrance and USO umps out for Williams (article)

It won't go away

http://www.tennis.com/news/2012/08/s...mpiring/38985/

Serena upset with U.S. Open umpiring


Serena Williams discusses her outburst at a lineswoman during her 6-4, 7-5 semifinal loss to Kim Clijsters in the 2009 U.S. Open semifinals. With Williams serving to stay in the match at 15-30, she was called her for a foot fault on her second serve, the second time she had been called for one in the match. That made the score 15-40 and gave Clijsters match point. Serena then exploded at the linewoman and threatened her. Williams was assessed a code violation and point penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct, thus ending the match.

“I was definitely stressed, and I was angry,” Serena told the New York Times Magazine. “I don’t foot-fault. Like, I have in the past, but this woman should never make a call in the semifinals of a Grand Slam on a person who doesn’t foot-fault. She was totally wrong. I’m sorry. I’m not sorry. I looked at her like—I tried to warn her. And then she did it again. And I’m thinking, This is ridiculous.”

Serena also told the magazine that what bothered her most was that she didn't represent her religion in a positive light. Serena is a Jehovah’s Witness and sometime later was talked to by church elders.

“I just felt like anyone who knew I was a Witness was stumbled,” she said. “And I really don’t want to stumble anybody…They had to have a talk with me. And I knew it was coming. I just felt really bad, though, because it’s like, that’s not who I am… It’s almost like a reprimand, but it’s not bad, because in the Bible it says God loves you, and if someone reprimands you, they love you.”

As she has stated numerous times this summer, Serena reiterated that she feels like bad things always happen to her at the U.S. Open. Last year, she was called for a hindrance and assessed a point penalty when she yelled out before her opponent, Samantha Stosur, had a chance to return the ball she had hit. Serena lost the final to Stosur.

“I got a point penalty because of a grunt,” she said. “Meanwhile, I can name five girls who grunt way louder than I do, and the umpire didn’t even give them a warning. And then I had the ball called out that was this far in [in her 2004 loss to Jennifer Capriati]. It’s always something. I’m thinking, already, something’s gonna happen this year at the Open. I’m just thinking, Serena, say your prayers, fall on your knees. It’s frustrating, because it’s my home country, you’re playing for the home, but it’s like, the way the umpires have been makes me not want to play there. I’d rather play in Australia, or I’d rather play at Wimbledon.”

Hindrance calls against Razzano and foot-faults in Karlovic-Murray match were 100500 times less credible

Re: The infamous foot-fault revisited - and the hinrance (article)

She never got a penalty point because of a grunt it's because she shouted come on when the ball was still in play. Someone should show her the tape.

So in one sentence she says that she doesn't foot-fault but that she has foot-faulted?

Ummm no. The point penalty was for making a noise when the opponent was on the ball. And she knows that.

May be because she's "unattractive inside"?

Well, the truth is there are players who grunt louder than her and literally yell EVERY TIME they hit the ball.

the truth is that grunting or making any loud sounds when your opponent is hitting the ball or the ball is on the opponents side and opponent is preparing to hit it means hindrance in tennis

Re: The infamous foot-fault revisited - and the hinrance (article)

The real truth is that none of this matters. It's 2012 and Serena's gonna do her regardless to the wishes of her detractors. And that's word.
