    Fantastic performance by Stosur, she never lost her cool, which cannot be said about that "thing" at the other side of the net.
    Gret defensive play and passing shots especially.
    There is still hope for ladies tennis!!

    You have got to be kidding me! I decide not to watch, and Stosur comes through big time. Congratulations Stosur!

    Anytime that POS Serena Williams loses it just puts a smile on my face. IMO, she's the most overhyped female athlete there is right now.

    Same here, Quiet. I missed it too. Glad Stosur won! By the way, glad to see you posting again. I remember when you, Triad and I were the CF Mississippi three. :biggrin:

    An incredible result to brighten this day which has been otherwise ho-hum in the NFL! Let's hope that this will somehow officially start the beginning of the end for the Williams sisters, and they fade away from the sport. (the sooner, the better)

    I didn't watch the first set either because I couldn't bear to watch Serena win but I turned it on at the very end of the set and decided to stick with it when I saw Stosur was winning. Serena bitched about how it was the same Greek umpire who supposedly robbed her two years ago after her notorious threat to shove a ball down the throat of a lineswoman. I guess she doesn't feel any regret about that. Then during the break before the changeover Serena pretty much issued a threat of violence against the Greek umpire. She's trash, and so are the New Yorkers who cheered her on from that moment. (The same New Yorkers seem to hate Djokovic!)

She just ruined Stosur first slam, Stosur was playing amazing, and Serena ruined her concentration with her terrible attitude. The audience that know nothing about tennis should be banned too.

    Just as I was pasting comments from the non-political Mens Tennis Forums many of the most anti-Serena comments were removed. Indeed it looks to me like an entire page and the more visceral remarks were removed. I guess Serena is a touchy subject.

    Way to go, Sammy! :high5:

    That was one hell of an unexpected win and that marks a Grand Slam shut out for the Williams sistahs! :tongue:

    First Grand Slam by an Aussie in 9 years.

    I'm kinda with foobar on the Djoko-Nadal finals match. A win for Djoko signals another changing of the guard. Looks like Federer can only win another Slam if both Nadal and Djoko get eliminated early, he's just about reached his limit now. Nadal's just a year older than Djoko, and so long as his knees hold up he'll remain a tennis force for another 4-5 years. As for Djoko, he's about mastered both rivals, and as long as he remains in top condition and injury free, he's
    the man to beat.

    Yeah, Reb, I remember those days. I've been meaning to ask you, did you have to do anything special to get your avatar to animate? I'm not having luck putting up the animated avatar from the old board.

    Quiet, it took me a little work to get it right. First I had to use the larger original file size, not the smaller one I used on the old board. I think I pasted the url of the file in the "Edit Avatar" function under "Settings." It was either that or I finally was able to get the larger original sized avatar posted on photobucket and then pasted that url into the edit avatar function. One of those should work, if the file itself isn't too big. Just saving an animated file and uploading it won't work. You'll just get a still image of the animation. I hope this helps.

    What a great tennis match. Let's just say that it made my weekend after watching most of my football teams that I like lose. Serena needs to retire. I'm so sick of her mouth and attitude.

    So that was the reason for the chimp-out. Leave it to Serena to outdo herself in the classlessness department.

    This thuggess feels like she can threaten just about anyone and get away with it, because a proper punishment would immediately be called racism. Let's hope other White players were watching this one, and no one should be scared of Serena going forward. She's very beatable and hopefully on her last legs.

    As far as the pro-black, anti-Novak DWFs in NY, f*ck them is what I say.

    I was watching the Williams/Stosur match when this incident happened. Williams hit a forehand and yelled right before it got to Stosur. The umpire awarded the point to Stosur, the tournament referee confirmed the ruling, and Mary Carillo expressed that Serena's yell was unsportsmanlike and bad form. Then the TNB began. Serena accused the umpire of being the same woman who "screwed her" two years ago when she was called for a foot-fault against Clijsters. (It was later confirmed that it was not the same umpire - but all Whites look the same, and all Whites are out to get Serena.) Serena kept talking **** to the umpire during the changeover, at the same time telling her "don't look at me", "your'e ugly, on the inside". Of course, when the match was over, Serena refused to shake the umpire's hand. It was a disgusting display of Negro perceived victimization, and of course the US Open crowd loudly supported Serena.

    At least Serena admitted that the call had no bearing on the ultimate result of the match. However, she could not bring herself to admit any wrongdoing in berating an umpire who was merely doing her job. She told the umpire "you're an ugly person, on the inside"... but only proved that she herself is hideous, inside and out.

    This she-man and her ugly sister Venus need to just get the hell out of tennis. Why when two negro sisters invade the sport you have to deal with all this drama all the time? These pigs have no manners and you just know they want to call the umpires honkeys and crackers. This type of ghetto trash has absolutely no place in this or any other sport.

    Here is a comment I found from what looks to be another racist black though It wouldn't shock me if it were another DWF!

    “Serena Williams was once again victimized by a racist, elitist system that favored Stosur for the color of her skin. I note that the umpire this time was from Greece and the 2009 umpire was from Sweden. We also see lots of European umpires from France, Spain, etc. Why no American umpires? Why is there not a single "person of color" umpire? Clearly, the USTA and tennis is an elitist, racist organizati*on where African Americans are NOT welcome. And by the way, the ruling was harsh: it did not appear to be "intention*al," so the point should have been replayed. Except that Stosur had ZERO chance, really, of returning that point. The fair thing would have been to give Serena the point and warn the players about verbal outbursts. Instead, Serena was penalized THREE times...lo*sing the point she had one; giving the point to the opponent instead of playing a let; and then a "code violation.*" None of this is fair. If we recall, it was Serena's match against Capriati in 2004 that led to "instant replay"...*because the "human" referees are so biased.”

    Due to the fact that she's black, she was only fined two thousand dollars for her little chimp out.

    Nadal just won a third set tiebreaker to extend the match after dropping the first two sets to Djokovic.

    Djokovic appears to have strained his mid lower back, he's not serving of moving well right now.

    I think Nadal has ran out of gas, and Djokovic's shot making is just sick. The back is holding up. He's now up 5-1, go for the win, Djoko!
