So, no, they are not just going after Serena. They just called a foot fault on Federer in the middle of the 2nd set while he was serving at deuce and Federer almost never gets called for a foot fault. This is the very first time I've seen him get called on one.

You don't understand. They shouldn't have called it at the time they did the other night. LOL! Should be called anytime!!!

They're obviously trying to create the illusion that it wasn't just a racist conspiracy against Serena.

Sp when hewitt was footfaulted like a dosen times vs blake i the year he won the USO, it was legit but now the allmighty can even step into the court and serve. Cmon mate gt a grip on what you're talking about. If its smells like it and tastes like it, it's exactly it.

Are you shitting me? Del Potro waited way too long to challenge. He might as well have waited till he sat down to challenge. Federer was completely right.

I ask you is it more important if the ball was good or not ? Anyways, is that the reason to swear at the ump ? He'ss a class act as far as Fed fans are concerned. I admire his tennis but this is a clear cut case of NO CLASS.

Yeah it's important if it's in or not, but it's also important that they challenge within the time limit. Otherwise, whether it's in or not is a moot point.

Fair enough but still, he should have been a class act he apparently is and let the thing go .... After all he's a legend playing vs a young upcomig player. Challange was late and bad. He knew it. He should have really been quiet.

No they didn't, that "foot-fault" call came from somebody in the crowd. McEnroe and Carillo mentioned it, you are on a roll Breakpoint.

Keep up the good work!

No, it's called cheating. You can't first ask your coach if the ball was in or out before deciding to make a challenge or not. Federer is rightfully p*ssed. Especially since this came after that umpire stole an ace away from Federer earlier in the match when DelPo claimed he wasn't ready, which he clearly was when the replays were shown.

Um...NO, it didn't! If McEnroe and Carillo said that, they were either clueless or guessing. Federer had to hit a SECOND SERVE!!!

Yes, CHEATING!!! The TV commentators said the words "That's cheating!" at least 10 times when Del Po did that.

Meh. It shouldn't be the players job to figure out what the calls are - the umpire should do that for them anyway. If it's a close call, I don't mind them taking the time to think about it - if it wasn't obvious to the linesmen, it's even less obvious to the players. Ridiculous rules if they don't allow that.
