Serena made a point to say she does not argue calls.
Only this time, she did -- for good reason, it turned out.
[black girl moment]
"No, no, no, no, no," Williams said. [/end] "That was my point! What are you talking about? What's going on? Excuse me? That ball was so in. What the heck is this?" Williams tried to illustrate her point, putting a ball on the court and pointing.
"The ball landed here. That ball was not out. Are you kidding me? I'm trying to tell you: The ball was not out. Do I need to speak another language?"
Answered Alves: "Please calm down."
Capriati stood at the other end, shaking her head.
"I didn't even, like, look at it. It was close. I was just going to do what the umpire said," Capriati told the crowd after the match, drawing some boos and murmurs.
"Believe me, I've had things go against me many times, plenty of times. I deserve to get a call once in a while. One point, I don't think, changed the match." Bitch.
Said Williams: "Honestly, I began to think, 'OK, well, I'm not going to go for the lines, I'm not going to go for my shots."
Later in the final set, replays showed at least two other incorrect calls that went against Williams.
