SERENA just got WARNING for gamesmanship!

She tried to throw Emilie off of her game by taking too much time. Glad she got the warning cuz just cuz you are a big star does not make it right.

She used the "F" word but she was talking to herself, I think complaining about her game

it should be point-game-default

there is no warning (as official punishment, it's called "soft warning"), so to be defaulted she can still say three other f words (unless it's a bad offense like hitting an official or opponent)

treufreund - I've never heard anyone get a warning for 'gamesmanship'. You can get warnings, (and point deductions) for taking too much time. (As happened to Dani H a few months back on match point.) What would you have to do to get a 'gamesmanship' warning. Too many bathroom breaks?

players curse all the time, even my fave

something tells me there was more to it than just using a curse word, but I could be wrong

it couldn't have been gamesmanship

the linejudge got up and walked over to the chair umpire and complained

the linejudge doesn't make gamesmanship calls, the chair umpire does
