Stosur stuns Williams to win U.S. Open title
Yahoo Sports ^ | 9/11/2011 | Julian Linden

Posted on 09/11/2011 3:41:22 PM PDT by JNRoberts

Throughout the second set she repeatedly argued with the chair umpire in a petulant display that rekindled memories of her exit from the 2009 U.S. Open.

“If you ever see me walking down the hall, look the other way because you’re out of control,” Williams said.

Many of the girls on the tour don't like or respect the Williams sisters because they are bad winners and worse losers. I can't stand em. Talented....yes. But they seem to have a deep seated anger and are utterly without grace. And today it showed again. As usual.

Thats not all she said.....do i detect the race card, why use the term, “your a hater” at the umpire.

“Aren’t you the one who screwed me over last time here?” Serena asked after being told of the point penalty? “Yeah, you are.”

Serena stood and glared at Asderaki for a few seconds while the New York crowd roared in her defense. Stosur looked momentarily stunned. Serena went on to break Stosur to even the match and continued her diatribe against the umpire during the next two changeovers.

“A code violation because I expressed who I am? We’re in America last I checked. Am I gonna get violated for a water? Really, dont’ even look at me. I promise you, don’t look at me because I am not the one. Don’t look my way.” [...]

[...] “If you ever see me walking down the hall, walk the other way. Because you’re out of control. Totally out of control. You’re a hater, you’re unattractive inside. Who would do such a thing. And I never complain. Wow.”

....she needs talking too.

It is racism. But you can’t say it. It’s the 900 lb. elephant in the room (or whatever that cliche is). When she loses, as with Obama and Sharpton and Jackson, and so many others..it has to be racism. It’s just sickening.

But when they win, everything’s suddenly ok. They are so predictable.

But good for the gal that won. Because there’s nothing like class and grace.

Yeah, I did a quick check of forums on the sports sites. ESPN and CNN/SI don’t seem to have a forum for tennis. Here is the CBS forum on tennis. Nine posts and only one defender for her, but the one defender does make a good point that people didn’t seem to get too upset at Jimmy Connor’s rants against officials back in the day.

Actually, Louise Engzel was the umpire in Serena's infamouse 2009 semifinal match, not Eva. But I guess all white people look alike to her. {smirk}

Serena was absolutely in the wrong and handled it without class.

Okay, I'll say it. The Williams sisters got a little “uppity” once Barry was elected. However, those deep seeded racist weights on their shoulders were there long before their tennis professions. Just talk for five minutes with their father.

It's quite lovely to see the he/she sisters crash and burn. No guilt here either for some of their health misfortunes. Name me one athlete who doesn't have health issues.

Serena acts all cutesy when the camera is on her with her false smile, as soon as she walks off, the sour angry face comes on. She did it today in the hallway after being interviewed before she walked onto court, all smiles when answering questions as she walked away camera was still on her, face switched in an instant to sourface.

I used to watch McEnroe, Borg, Connors, Gerulitis and Nastase back in the day and hated the loudmouth antics of Connors and Mac. Borg was my favorite-He always seemed to have a knowing smirky confidence about him.

Serena intentionally violated the rule by screaming during the point. She did it to distract Stosur during the point first of all and then probably to get some controversy going to change the rythmn of the match. Just like yesterday, she had to get some attention by bringing out the trainer for medical treatment on her toe. It was another violation that they let go. You can not have medical treatment on an existing injury, yet she was allowed. I had to laugh when she was jumping and dancing around after the win, an amazing recovery. I have to hand it to McEnroe, he said, Stosur was the right person to win the match.

Yes I’ve seen that. It’s actually a very useful commentary on the utter falseness of the television veneer that dominates so many peoples’ lives.

I’d like a gif of that.

Serena deliberately stirred it all up to get the american crowd going behind her, she’s pulled this crap before, she creates controversy so she can unnerve an opponent.

She really needs a ban put on her, she is proving to be a destructive little madam when she doesnt get her own way.
