Okay, seriously:

Monica lost in the first round for the first time, to Nadya Petrova. Petrova went on to beat JCap, as well.

Venus lost to a Russian, I forget who. Kim beat said Russian to make the final.

On the other side of the draw, Justine beat Serena 7-5 in the 3rd, in a sloppy match which ESPN deemed an "instant classic."

The crowd booed Serena, for various reasons (line calls, rooting for the underdog, whatever).

The controversy arose when, on one point in the 3rd set, Justine held up her hand while Serena was in the middle of her service motion. Serena served anyway. It was a fault. She asked for another first serve because Justine had her hand up. The umpire said he didn't see that Justine had her hand up, and Justine didn't say anything. People have gotten extremely upset about this and much shit has flown across the room.

Justine then whipped Kim soundly in an all-Belgian final.

Kim and Ai won the women's doubles.

Martin Verkerk came out of nowhere to reach the men's singles final. Seriously.

Are you going to sleep through Wimbledon, too? If so, we can compile a summary in advance and have it waiting for you when you awake, along with your newspaper and slippers and a nice big breakfast.

You caught us all off guard this time.

There are actually 2 versions of the Justine Serena story.
Here's the other: Serena saw Justine put her hand up, but decided to have a quick go and serve an ace anyway, that didn't work, so she asked for another first serve, Justine, knowing what her evil plan was, didn't allow that. Serena cried in the interview after.

Or Justine is a extremely bitch and knowing that Serena could have an ace on her 2nd 1st serve, decided to stay quiet while the umpire decided what to do

Actually, my post was neither version.

If you will read my paragraph of the incident carefully, you will see that each sentence is a statement of a simple fact -- in other words, simply the actions that occurred, no more -- without judgment or pretending to read the thoughts or intentions of either woman.

Glenn, who's Glenn? :p

No, I was just saying that there are 2 versions, I didn't say I was defending this one.
We just don't have to blame Justine for everything, that's all, she won fair and square, blaming that one call is stupid.
