More Anti-Americanism at work.
Guess the other countries don't have a real passion for their sport.
Oh well. They have to find a way to beat us somehow. Bellyingaching about showing passion is typical of how to cheat and get a win when you can't do it on the court.
Stosur is so weak. And so are the officials.

Lack of respect for officials is inexcusable. But, there also needs to be a balance. Players are allowed video replay challenges, the chair should have the same review. Replay could have easily been used in this case. Every chair over rule should be verified by replay, anything less is inexcusable.

Agreed.

There does need to be a balance.

Come on, "Lack of respect for officials". Come on, we live in a country where lack of respect is a way of life. This is tennis, let's hear your views of the POTUS. LOL

Racism,

"we live in a country where lack of respect is a way of life"

Part of the problem.

Had Serena questioned the call instead of disrespecting the person, she would have at least a point.

Bagging on Obama for anything except his job performance is petty and pointless, in my opinion.

That said I don't find his job performance satisfactory. He speaks well, but steps aside when leadership is needed.

Are you on drugs you f%&$ing moron? Showing passion is one thing, however, acting like a horse's ass the way she did yesterday is inexcusable. If you had a child, and he/she was learning to play tennis at a young age, would you want Serena as their role model. Think about that one you moron!!!!!!!!!! Stosur is a class and kicked Serena's fat ass all over the court. It was poetry in motion.

You mean like how you are acting now? Just checking to be sure.

Guess you wanted to show an example of what you THOUGHT you saw.

You do a perfect impression of ... what did you call me...a f...ing moron?

Were you sober when you wrote this? If so, that is amazing. Having passion is one thing, however, being arrogant, self-centred and a complete cry-baby are not necessary.
