    OK, but Jennifer should lay off the Twinkies

    First off, let's agree that Serena has no business designing clothes. Secondly, are they really doing random drug tests in pro tennis, that is, is it really possible for Serena to be that bulked up without doping? That being said, Capriati is supposed to be a pro athlete but looks like she's never visited a gym, so as far as this match goes, I'm just hoping it ends quickly so I can watch some real tennis with Roddick playing.

    rtanson1, You must be new to the game of tennis. Even in very early photos of Serena as a teenager she was very muscular and broad shouldered. She has a very wide jawline like her dad.

    Serena's gear does look bad but that's what happens when the dress code in tennis is relaxed. Serena-wear, sleeveless mens tops, arm tattoos and half-length trousers masquerading as tennis shorts should be banned from tennis clubs/touneys the world over.

    Your points are well-taken, though I'm an old hand at tennis. Even the most muscular of athletes, given intensive training, can look "unusually" enhanced through doping, e.g., Marion Jones.

    Marion Jones weighs less than 10 stones.

    No doubt about it, Serena is very big but 'visual muscle defination' is enhanced by darker skin hence the reason body builders are tanned or apply fake tan at body building competitions.

    If you ever watch Dementieva and she's wearing one of those halter-neck style tops with exposed shoulders and upper back you will be surprised by the amount of muscle defination and bulk around her upper back and shoulders. She has more defination than me.

    The arm tattoo was a reference to Moya. Does Serena have a arm tattoo?

    About the match, it's going to a third set like it usually does.

    I think this chair umpire will get suspended just like the one at Wimbledon was for messing up the score.

    I don't believe this, Elena's got as much muscle as a pre-schooler.

    This I believe.

    i wouldn't really call roddick's game real tennis anyway. it's more like 'let's see how fast i can serve in this game' or 'how hard can i hit this ball'. to me, his game is as entertaining as serena's outfit...ie sucks.

    THIS IS PURE ********! I'm not a fan of any women tennis player, but seriously Serena deserves to win! C'mon.. no umpire can overrule a ball on the other side of the court. This must be some conspiracy!

    I hope the US Open provides a Q&A regarding the umpire's thought process concerning the call/score during Serena's service game.

    jen knew no more than serena what was going on. the linesman should have corrected the umpire. there were also calls that went against jennifer, but mac and tracy forgot about those.

    I've never been a Serena fan. She has to much superficial flash for me but what happened in her match with Capriati was horrible. I haven't seen so many onesided, blatant bad line calls since the Roddick-Nalbandian match at last year's Open. The Open is getting a very bad reputation now and many can see that something really stinks in New York. This match was literally handed to Capriati by calls and before all that, I was rooting for Jenifer.

    1. Serena got an incredible run of bad calls. She reacted with more class than she usually is given credit for. In her post match interview she did credit Jennifer with playing well and in the post match handshake she was gracious.
    2. Jennifer played smarter than I can remember in her past matches. She got a good percentage of first serves in. She varied the pace and let Serena go for winners. Played good defense retrieving everything Serena hit. Plus she changed the pace effectively on Serena, especially with the slice backhand.
    3. Won't the NY crowd go wild if they end up with a Jennifer-Lindsey final.

    Absolutely unbelievable. It really does make you wonder what in the world was going on. I can't blame Serena for saying something about a conspiracy. I was not that crazy about her outfit, but damn, I guess they wanted her off the court. Jennifer has no honor, at first she kind of denied that she knew the ball was in and then she kind of admitted it was good. On a call that blatantly incorrect a player should not accept the point. On the men's side it is not uncommon to see the players themselves correct an obviously bad call. Muster, Rafter, Agassi, heck, a lot of them do. I am proud of the announcers for not letting this thing go. Mac is all fired up. I am just like STRman above, I was pulling for Jennifer but after those terrible calls I was hoping Serena would win.

    Those calls were deliberate because the USTA wanted an American to win the match!

    Serena really needs to be more mature about this crap. Professionals know that everything doesn't always come out the way they want it to. Her "press conference" was bizarre, the giggling was so immature, and it didn't surprise me one bit that she considered Venus' Wimbledon oddity a "conspiracy". If anything the Williams get away with much more than they deserve because they are a novelty. Kill whitey!
