Hi Lisa......

That was a very bad call, perhaps he was having an afternoon nap or dreaming of strawberries and cream laugh.gif . Either way he should sharpen up, a bad call puts the players under stress.

Regards....Margaret.....

You're right about ex-chair umpire, poor guy probably won't be able to show his face anymore. blink.gif

Yes, I watched it! Could not understand why Venus never said anything. Normally she will say something (even to complain that the ball was in when it was out) rolleyes.gif

and DID ANYONE SEE HOW WE WERE CHEATED OUT OF A GOAL WITH THE EUROPEAN MATCH LAST NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That umpire SHOULD BE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ohmy.gif Could not believe my eyes......BELIEVE HE WAS FROM ZURICH. HOPE HE IS BACK THERE THIS MORNING! DON'T KNOW WHAT HE WAS ON ???? BUT AM UTTERLY DISGUSTED! If that was fair, then I don't know what is anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????????

I believe Venus could have had the second set. Venus- you were robbed!! sad.gif
I am amazed at how gracious both her and her father were after the fact.
Next time Venus! wink.gif

HAVE YOU HEARD THE ONE ABOUT THE REFEREE'S NEW VILLA IN PORTUGAL!!!!!!!

laugh.gif laugh.gif WE WONE, THE LINESMAN GAVE GOAL, THE REFEREE SAID PLAY ON
WE WERE CHEATED!!!!!! AND I TO AM SO MAD.

VENUS SHOULD HAVE QUESTIONED THE SCORE AT THE TIME, SHE'S NOT PLAYING AS WELL AS SHE DID, SHE WAS BEATEN BY A NEW GOOD PLAYER, ONE TO WATCH.

REGARDS MARGARET......

THE ENGLAND MANAGER SPOKE TO THE REFEREE IN PRIVATE AFTERWARDS, BET THAT WAS AN INTERESTING CONVERSATION.

Yes Margaret! I didn't go into details on Venus' match, but my sentiments were the same!

At least Henman got through today! No compensation for a football match which was OURS!

Wow, great game between Andy and Roger today. Both players are so fantastic that I wanted them both to win (Andy you did win too)

Congratulations to Roger for the win.

Would have loved to see any of the matches in person, maybe next year!

Liliane,

Oh, that would be fun, Roger is a cutie! Do you see him around town? Jack and I not too long ago saw Andy Roddick walking around the mall here in Boca. smile.gif
