This kid is stunning. Really convincing throughout the whole two weeks, I hope she wins a lot more in the future.

I imagine Serena will have another shot at a Major title. If she does, hopefully she will control herself better next time.

Congrats Naomi, you played brilliantly!! This is only the beginning for her, she will win many more majors. I was so impressed with her speed around the court, super solid groundies and great serve.:)



And GOATrena will eventually win another one.:)


Fire that umpire!

I think Patrick and Serena are going to be done after this year. Serena likely saw his hands out of the corner of her eye and thought he said thumbs up. Why would she want illegal coaching when she doesn't accept the legal on court coaching. I can completely understand why Serena was upset about the warning because she has to constantly hear she is a cheater because of her natural body and strength.

She is probably done for the year. Rest up and put your eyes on the AO.

I can't believe you guys. Line judge accuses her of cheating when she didn't, and then takes away an entire game because he can't take getting yelled at by a woman.

Actually wait - I remember him being at the centre of Fred's hawkeye issues in W 2007

Do you remember the Novak match by any chance?
No I don't remember but I think it's been a few matches with Novak. I think one recently at Wimbledon.

I gave Evert credit for calling what it was , a coaching from Patrick and Serena immediately followed the advice - to the net.
I have new found respect for Evert . She said Pteick coached, she said calling umpire thief is not just a 'warning'

Mary Joe and Chris Fowler were really crappy

Patrick just admitted he was coaching :rolleyes: And then she immediately came into the net on a couple of points, and executed that drop shot.

Congrats to Osaka and it's great for tennis. Very well played. That umpire was out of line in my eyes. The point penalty was enough but a game penalty? Serena has never got a coaching violation in her career. Just keep it fair play because she doesn't cheat to win. I wish Serena just not let it get to her and move on though. Should not have lost her cool.
She didn't just yell, she accused him of lying and stealing her the point. She wouldn't have gotten a game penalty if it was just the yelling.

She very obviously wasn’t looking to be coached and didn’t realize what he was doing. That’s why she lost her ****.

She should have accepted that he did do it tho and just carried on.

Okay in Serena's fairness, there are some people like Kyrgios who have abused every rule in the book but he seems to only get a slap on the wrist each time. I mean he got a 20-day suspension but that was already late in the year when tennis season was already winding down

As a person, yes. As a player, unfortunately not.
We should know how to separate one thing from the other, even when we are pissed off.
Besides the one-slam differential which took Serena ages to get, Steffi still has the upper hand in countless other categories. Serena's domination's been great no doubt but Steffi at her peak dominated the field like no other. Serena would beat anyone 1 v 1, but statistically, Graf is still the female GOAT
