Ugliest moment of tennis

I read the title of the thread, and thought "this must be about the knife attack on Seles", but then I see it's this laughable incident between Pete and Andre.

Seriously, way worse things happened on the court than Sampras getting his feelings hurt. About 1000 worse things, probably.

Serena Williams, for example, would feature prominently on such a list. As would Fognini, Kyrgios, Nastase, and Wozniacki.

I have absolutely no idea what 'crip' means?
The Crips are a popular street gang dispersed through many parts in the U.S. Deal in drugs, robbery, gang banging...etc.etc. Serena did their stupid little dance, which many think cringe worthy.

Oh. Ok. I thought it was just a jolly dance at the time.
Understandable then if Americans are upset by it.

The degree in which it exists. Don't believe anyone here ever said racism didn't exist. Ignorant even to suggest such a thing. Maybe in your mind that's what you hear, which explains a lot.
Again, you're projecting. You to be able to spew crap without consequences. Enjoy.

I'm not an idiot and see what some of you posters say on this site. It is definitely because she is black and very successful. Look at the comments in this thread and take off your tinted glasses min vän. That incident was one time many years ago but you can't stop bringing it up when I have seen much much worse. Her crip walk was stupid but nothing really but you keep bringing it up. I see clearly and so does anyone with common sense.
And now we're jealous of her... Voltaire once wrote, "Common sense isn't so common." You must've been very proud of your he-ro yesterday. (Yes, I know. The umpire was (racist, sexist, unfair, a man, all of the above)).

The umpire was also an umpire.

The ugliest moment in tennis is Serena Williams.
Moment?! She's been a 20 year curse. I was thinking that her "inspirational" performance yesterday makes for the perfect exit. Retire. Work on your rage issues (not enough people kissing her a**??). Since you've mentioned it so often, work at being a real mother; not the kind of "mother" you've been for 40 years. Go on safari. They let you pet the lions! Start a home for elderly tennis players. Go on a diet. Join the diplomacy corp. You're a natural! Give me a break.

Yes, yes, yes, very long moment. I just mentioned it as a topic name. Absolutely agree with you on everything.

Serena - ugly looking, ugly walking, disgusting behaviour, bad mother example, nasty woman example, the worst ever tennis player example.

Nothing compares to Hewitt's racist tirade at James Blake and Marion Johnson at the 2001 U.S. Open. Hewitt should have been banned from tennis permanently for that unforgivable attack.

"Look at him and you tell me what the similarity is. Get him off the court. Look at what he’s done.”
Unforgivable display of the worst of human behavior/beliefs.
