She isn't a typical Flt attdnt. because she is a champion.

I for one don't blame Serena W.......There are certain rules in Tennis; one is you never call a measly little foot fault during any break point. Just like in Hockey; with the game in OT only a blatant penalty would be called. If I were her I would've got up in her the line judge's face and whispered sweet nothings into her ear that way no one can hear you.

Why is this being made into such a big deal? Watching it by the millions on you tube, and be sure to read many of the comments below the videos - which are mostly racist rants. Makes you sad to be an American in this Fox News - Rush limbaugh world. Or at least makes you feel sorry for those idiots who like to listen and watch fox and the likes because it makes them feel good about themselves.

Let me guess the moderator will pull this but leave the other one up.

Speaking as an active tennis player, I agree that the foot fault was a bad call, but I don't think that they should ignore the rules of the game because it's a close match.

There is no question that it was a bad call by the lineswoman; there was no foot fault. But you can't ask a line judge to ignore the rules of the game under certain circumstances. That would be like ignoring the fact that a wide receiver stepped out of bounds on his way to the end zone.

As for the racist comments, it's terrible. Some of the most racist people in the whole country are from minority groups. It just so happens that in this case, it is a bunch of racist white folks showing their true colors.

I agree with your last statements. But in regard to the foot fault: having served as a line judge and ranked nationally on the circuit(in my glory years) - NO one calls foot faults when the game is so close and near end even if they step over by 5 inches.

Wow..How can you tell what race the YouTube posters are? You aren't exactly breaking down any stereotypes yourself. You big leftist tennis ace! By the way, how has the Volvo Wagon been running? I do like Serena, and think she just lost it. She apologized, and should be the end of it.

It is discussed in the Majors section because it is Majorly Gay, and noone would read it anywhere else unless it had this misleading flight attendant title.
