Go Clijsters!

I used to admire, and sometimes like, the Williams sisters. I was rooting for Kim Clijsters anyway, mostly because I love a comeback (especially by a mom). But, as one commenter at the New York Times said, this incident proves why Serena is an impossible person to root for. Venus has always been the classier sister, and I feel sad that Serena had to fall this way. I admire her tennis skills, but I have lost my respect for her.

Her outburst was not excusable, but neither was the terribly bad call, on the match point, by the line judge. After seeing it, one has to wonder who the line judge was rooting for...

The call was actually on the point before match point. So, had Serena kept her cool, she could have actually won that game.
