Just got back from the thrilling 3 set win for Jennifer in her quarter final against Lisa. Jennifer came out smoking and won the first set 6-1. Then in the second LIsa started dominating the net and was able to mix up the ball and pace and give Jennifer a different looked. It worked. They both held serve and got to a tie break.
Lisa was up 6-3 in the tie break and Jennifer dug down and won the next 2 points to get it to 6-5. Then this is when it happened. Lisa hit a shot that appeared to go long and the line judge did not call it. Jennifer than looked to the chair and she would not over rule. So instead of it being 6-6, Lisa won the second set. Jennifer
EXPLODED. She went up to the chair and said, "What the hell are you doing!"
She got a verbal warning. As she stormed off the court to take a bathroom break, (her back to the chair), she made a jesture that she covered with her hand. I did not see it, but my friend said it looked like she gave the finger.

When Jennifer came back she lost the first two game of the third. Lisa played very well and if she could have kept her game up - probably could have pulled it out.
Jennifer got her head back on, and won it 6-4 in the third.
Talk about DRAMA. OH - side note: Kim Clijsters came to watch the first set. She sat with Steven, (They seemed very chummy and talked through most of it).

All for now.

Kim and Jen are really good friends....no surprise there! As for the umpire, from what i saw as well, the ball WAS out, he simply wasnt paying attention!

Im sick of these lazy Umpires...they have one SIMPLE job LOOK AT THE LINES...is that SOOO hard? god!

She did not tell of the linesman. She had words with the chair umpire. She wanted the chair to call the ball out, because the line judes were asleep. They make $200.00 a day to call 3 matches and many of the calls have been terrible all week, (especially on calling bad serves).

Maybe Crapriati could have just given the linesmen a few cans of Red Bull. :)
