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. :D

how many warnings till you lose a game?/match?

Cybelle Darkholme Jan 14th, 2003 03:30 AM

excuse me but you dont have to be a big star to use gamesmanship.

MaRKy MaRk Jan 14th, 2003 03:31 AM

Actually it was a warning for audible obscenity

Cybelle Darkholme Jan 14th, 2003 03:38 AM

what did she say?

adell Jan 14th, 2003 03:49 AM

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

tenn_ace Jan 14th, 2003 03:53 AM

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)

OMG, and this was televised? What kind of example is she setting?! Little girls look up to her....

tennezfan001 Jan 14th, 2003 04:42 AM

she said "give me a "F" ing break

Lee-Waters' Boy Jan 14th, 2003 04:44 AM

yeah she swore with fuck ......not gamesmanship i taped it if you want to see lol

Volcana Jan 14th, 2003 04:47 AM

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?:)

jojoseph Jan 14th, 2003 04:50 AM

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

jojoseph Jan 14th, 2003 04:52 AM

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

Shame on you Serena.... still.. NICE comeback love.:)

Capriati... take notes.

GABRIEL Jan 14th, 2003 04:53 AM
