I am sorry for those events happening to her. I hope all the best for her future, and for her to pursue a good career continuation in what she loves. And facepalm at the people who used those events to throw rocks at her. Wish all the best for you Jarmila. As for Bepa, hope her new coach won't mess up things with her and be able to take her to further stages in her own career. :)

Like I said, I don't think these comments are worthy of rationnal analysis. I don't know if the majority said violent stuff or if there is a good part whom measured their comments... Not that I defend them, but I do think she made these comments knowing that would attract rage. Else, she cannot really say she would make them without expecting any reactions. Once again, that do not excuse the violence, but I don't think it is possible to understand them properly when the gutted moment is gone. You have plenty of examples of that in the life, and sports (Madrid vs Barcelona...), and for some other subjects attracting massive different opinions. Unevitable. However I don't regret any measured comments toward her. Only insulting and further I think are not admissible. But even you know that and want to act classy, it is difficult on the moment. But you might succeed to contain yourself. (I speak in general, some might succeed).

And, don't screw Ana fans because they are quite, how to say, a lot. To say she didn't deserve what a lot said to her might be, yeah, justified. However you can't expect cumulating some of much consider like an affront to their player (first lack of respect from Hantuchova whom everyone know she is still gutted of that AO match, then this Cibulkova incident, where she clearly added too much), without saving the risk to get a huge charge backwards. Actually I would have maybe said "ok she celebrated because she was fierce to beat a better player and secure a tie", and move on. But she added too much behind on twitter, which was clearly unnecessary, and more than celebrating, showed her intention of drowning Ana, and thus Ana fans and also Serbians because of her last tweet saying they can't stand losing. And no, when you attack clearly, while moreover trying to hide it behind a language not everyone understand, that ain't good. Because when you try to say it in order that the fewest possible might read it, is that you intentionnaly tried to mess them. When moreover she was quite wrong and thus, only provoking. We didn't boo at her because we were losing, we booed after those stupid statements they made. They made too much of them. You don't go there, start to provoke people unnecessary and reinforce it behind while celebrating something that might be easily misunderstood, moreover when you had a few display showing you would have been destroyed hath the opponent played healthy and 100%, and therefore, turning wrong everything of what you thought for granted. Maybe at first it wasn't necessary a mean statement, but it was clearly badly reinforced afterwards. And people do react, moreover on such a moment, and when you know the one you're facing is pretty much known for her classy behaviour, and a lotta lot appreciated from crowd. You know, it reinforces again the stuff. That is unevitable.

When we come to think of it, Dejan comes here with 3 player of out 4 more or less, since JJ is not well, Aleksandra was saved for doubles. Bojana loses her first match, Ana retires unfortunately from her abdominal injury, and they are lead 2-6 1-5 30-0 on their opponent serve in the decisive rubber. Well, Slovakia wanted to play it dramatic. Never, never do that against Serbia, dudes. You know no one can deal with them here. But again congratulations to them not being mentally down after Ana's retirement, and trying from the best they could to win it. Special mention for Jankovic because she spent 6 hours on court in one day, that's not nothing. And to us for cheering loudly for her and the team after Ana's retirement, and, hum, Cibulkova's comments. Bravo Serbia ! :)

About France vs Spain : Rofl, totally. Though on clay I don't know if that would have changed anything. But with French playing for France, you can never be sure of anything. I didn't recognise Venus at all. Congrats Germany for the 5-0 win, and for the other winners too as well.

Oh, I didn't understood what you wanted to say, sorry. I actually don't disagree with C Note, if that answers your comment. Maybe I was rude but that is because it has actually to involve a French crowd when stuff like this happen daily in sports. And Andy Murray. I asked the question : would have she treated this stuff the same way if it wasn't one of her fave (that is a gentle and real question, I just want to know). As I said, I don't excuse the crowd. I am male, if you asked about me. Edit : Yeah, I believe I went quite rude reading again my post. Also don't take me much seriously, I do say a lot of bullshit actually. Since it is not the first time the French crowd is targeted for something (targeted for their cheering for Soderling against Nadal in RG09), and with C Note who didn't like much Laura Robson going down to Mladenovic, I got to think something was wrong again with French. And I'm thinking I am defending them, weird of me. Also this post wasn't targeted toward C Note directly, at least not totally. [I am not English]

Until you actually consider writing about every incident of any tennis crowds not involving your faves, in order to argue against them, I will consider it was just a matter to find something for Andy Murray. Not that I am defending the crowd of course, that is still stupid. I cannot say anything wrong toward them however, knowing I and some Anakads reacted pretty much the same way during the defeat to MJMS last year, actually reacting always the same during defeats, such as a lot of other crowds to be honest. Maybe not expressing it the most for tennis. Go and watch the Clasico (Real / Barça) this week-end, and we can speak again of the crowds. Now of course if you have nothing to reproach to yourself, then you can speak of the incident, that's allowed. Excepted only people allow themselves to boo at their opponent when they are alone at home. That is somewhat funny. But I say no problem if I can find another post of a crowd incident involving two non-faves of yours, and not a French crowd. Even there anyways I can say no problems. PS : The stuff about French food was of course, way evitable.

Used "Ana Ivanovic argument". It's super effective ! Yes. Just say Ana went to Tokyo to this exact place and we'll come. It's straightforward going. And far more effective.

Come in France, and listen to the medias, if you need to go back in the past. But I can't assure you that you won't be back a lot earlier than 1990s.

Amazing performance Andrea, big congratulations even if I couldn't live them because of Ana, but what you did is what few top 20 can do nowadays. Great stuff, hope the tournament continues to smile to you and you can reach step further. :)

Andrea succeeded to turn Wozniacki's game against her. Pretty brillant. And brainful. Sad for the dance but she probably accomplished what she wanted to : make Ana doing it. Also, speaking of Ana : her eyes, people. Her eyes. Congratulations Petko. :)

If this is not awesome, I'm not myself anymore. I love how Ana is so pissed off and Petko can't stop laughing. Ana, you and the umpires, long story. Above all you never win against them. But yeah, much to her unconvenance probably, she is so great when she gets mad. That's why we love her :p Poor Baby E. In the same time, difficult to go against babies.

In case you didn't already know she was awesome.

I do blame you. You could stay awake until the middle of the second watching Wozniacki.

And glad the winners are always with us. :P I was sure Ana was nervous because of the dance, haha. :) Good job Andrea for succeeding in convincing her ! And what were you thinking ? :D Ana gets nervous about a lotta lot of things, so dancing, that was the thing not to say in order to win. x) Loveable btw how she is talking of Ana like she was some kind of her child. Hope they win a lot of matches together in the future !

Of course Nole's streak will eventually come to an end soon. Why asking for it ? For once we can be a bit happy, over those recent years, it's been not a lot of opportunities for that. There's not to worry Rafa will be soon at a level to win Slams. For once Nole can keep his awesome AO-play, personnaly, I won't cry. As long as he can holds, that's great. And even if he would drop a match due to being exhausted, so what. It won't drop his luck and his form. We all know how tough it is to play against Rafa. Even though he was clearly not playing great last set, Nole clearly had to make the effort to come back, to take advantage to any of the occasions, to win that 6th set. That might be harder than anything. So once again, congratulations for what he did.
