I mean Roddick, Safin are serial for this kind of stuff, going berserk after a perhaps "dodgy" call. Apart from Smashed Racquets nothing but a code violation comes into play and maybe a small fine.

The Chela-Hewitt incident where Hewitt reported Chela for reportedly spitting at him at the aussie open a couple of years back etc.

This is just absolutely unjust. Not sure what else to say.

Maybe she was the one that stabbed Monica Seles in the back in 1993 .

Serena smashed a racquet earlier in the game, earning her first violation. When she went beserk at the linesman later in the game, she hit strike 2 and thus gave away a penalty point. From what I've been able to find out, that is within the rules of the game, although I don't think that rule has been invoked since John McEnroe retired.

I watched every hit of the ball last night between Del Potro and Nadal, and while the scoreline of 6-2 6-2 6-2 looks like a thumping from Nadal's end, it was much closer than that in truth, especially the first 2 Sets where Nadal had plenty of chances of his own.

It pretty much came down to Del Potro playing the bigger points better, and being able to dictate points from the baseline, Rafa gave him too much respect, and stood way too far back against a guy who is probably the flattest hitter of the ball in the Men's Top 20.

Overall, a superb performance from Juan Martin, and I really give him every chance to beat Roger in the Final. Juan Martin should have beaten Roger at the French Open SF's, and I'm sure he'll be better equipped now, plus he's playing a lot better.
