chair umpire first....win or lose...why is that? I thought it was common courtesy for the winner to let loser to shake the chair ump first? Is it just her that does this?:confused:

venus does it too. But sometimes they let their opponent go first if they had to fight for the hand shake :P

Yes, but a ******* like SQA333 (and the one who supported his post) conveniently forgot that while trying to damn Serena.

Serena is 'old' in tennis terms now.

Shouldn't there be some deference for the mature(r) set?

Elder statesman (woman)...

Although she doesn’t always act like it.

She has no class and no this has nothing to do with her skin colour. It seems like people are using the race card everytime people criticize Serena.

Didn't like her celebration yesterday, it seemed like it was all an act, lying down with her hands up, looking at her box for a minute, saying "oh my god, oh my god" etc.

Looking ****ed at the line judge, after he called a foot fault, trying to justify her behavior a couple of years ago, no Serena has no class.

And you don't have to be black or white to be an a**.

Unfortunately it was Azarenka who was her opponent, don't like her either, with her shrieking, if it were someone like Sam, Kvitova or Radwanksa, I would have definitely rooted for them.

Not a fan of Serena, never have been.

But hey, she deserved the win, simple as that, she might be an ***, but she can play tennis, that's for sure.

So players are not allowed to celebrate anymore? This has been one of her best years ever, winning the gold medal, Wimbledon, and the Open. She was out of the game for a long time due to various injuries and probably thought she couldn't make it back on the tour. She has every reason to celebrate. Would you say the same about Roger or Rafa? They both won a record amount of slams, so was it all an act?

And last time I checked, Serena didn't do anything to the lines person. So what if she stared at them? She didn't shout, complain, or do anything like that. She went about her business, and won the match. Even Azarenka got into it with the umpire, so I fail to see your point.

Your opinion is very important to her

Imagine if Serena routinely talked to officials the way Azarenka seems to every other match.

This board would implode with hatred.

Exactly. Serena and Nadal both get this treatment. As I said before, tennis has the most racist fans of any sport.

Unless she's pushing someone out of the way to get to the umpire's hand first, what does it matter?

Lol, I remember Azarenka calling the chair umpire "delirious" at one point of the final.

Azarenka as most women's tennis players (except for the Williams sisters and few exceptions) doesn't have the mustard in the serve to close out a match. No matter how good in developing a shot many of them are, when they double fault or hit a softball serve they lose.

Yes it's due to the shoulder structure of women as compared to men. It's the same reason most cannot hit an efffective kick serve and why you always see sliced second serves. They have a much easier time generating pace off the ground then the serve.

Serena obviously being a notable exception.

Yea, but Azeranka has the best ground game. She hits the ball earlier than any of the other big hitters...
