the american Amber Liu. Too bad we cant see past the color boundary here in the US to cheer for the W/S. But instead they(commentators) applaud the for foreigner instead of rooting for their home person.

actually you have just given reason for the American's cheering for the Williams opponet, they always cheer the underdog and they are doing the same thing tonight. Even though she isn't white.

They don't cheer for the underdog when Capriati or Davenport play. I didn't hear any GO Callens from the Americans earlier. :rolleyes:

LOL We have SOME Williams fans who claim that the SISTERS are THE MOST POPULAR players on the WTA tour and then the same fans whine about how little crowd support they enjoy even when they play in their OWN HOME COUNTRY where they are supposedly "very popular" . Its really funny :lol:

The sisters are liked by the people who count, not some of the trash that unfortuantely fumugates the tournaments they play.

broken record. same shit, different threads.

fuck the crowd......as long as theyre is no booing, why do people actually care who they cheer for anyways? in fact, i so rarely ever listen to the crowd, i often dont catch who they root for

No, it can't. There seem to be some people who look for anything that they can claim is biased against the Williams Sisters (see my comments in the thread about Justine's use of the word "behind"). :p

I swear that one of these days, we're going to have a poster here bring a decibel meter to a tournament and complain because the sound level for player A was 78.34 decibels, while the sound level for Venus or Serena was only 78.33 decibels, and that this is proof of how the crowds hate the Williams Sisters.

I really was surprised the American crowd was generous enough to give Amber a considerably huge support considering that maybe they only root for white americans most of the time... but maybe it's all starting to get better, that the americans are more of less racist now.. not that i'm saying they are....
