Well MD calls those all the time, the problem is he fails to use them right while Azarenka is competent at her job

Who cares?

Yesterday was the Men's final at the Australian, and the Men's score didn't even make "The Lead" part of the crawler at the bottom of the screen. Mid-season NBA scores did, but not a tennis "Major final".

Let it go, it's gone.

If it's cheating, it's not within the rules. If it's within the rules, it's not cheating. I don't understand this "cheating within the rules" business.

So the first snowflakes have reached the professional levels in sports, eh?

That's a shame. Tennis is a fun sport to watch. Great athleticism and stamina on display, and a tightly-contested 5-set match has all the drama you could want in a sport.

I think US interest in tennis has really been killed by the lack of American players in the top echelon over the last decade or so.

Obviously, I was referring to the men's side when I talk about the lack of upper echelon players.

But aside from the Williams sisters, there haven't really been many great American players on the women's side either lately.

i don't think interest is all that much down... it's just interest in the australian open might be down because it's in the middle of some exciting american sports.

I can't stand watching women's tennis. The grunting seems to get worse each year, and Azarenka is the worst offender. That "OOOOOOoooooooo" with every stroke gets annoying after about 2 minutes.

That's when something violates the spirit of the rules, but not the letter of the rules. Or possibly violating the rules in a way that depends on the integrity of the player; a violation that is impossible to determine. See also Treygreen13's post.

And the Australian Open has long been the least important GS event. And it's on at awful times.

I like tennis but it's hard as hell to follow the Australian living on the East Coast.

i cannot watch a match with Azerenka! her shrieking obviously has nothing to do with hitting the ball harder, and it's not just a natural grunt. She's still wailing when her opponent is about to return her shot!

the tennis powers that be need to put a muzzle on her!!!
