    Probably. I loved JM. The Borg McEnroe movie last year was superb.

    Anyone else see the Curb episode with McEnroe? So funny when Larry and McEnroe jot tanked up at the baseball game for being too loud laughing at Larrys 'Freak' book.

    Anyway, with Williams whether she was justified in feeling aggrieved is besides the point. She completely undermined her opponents great victory by being over the top in her outrage. She should have dealt with it in another way and had the maturity to control herself. Telling the Umpire that he will never work as an Umpire again stinks of arrogance and being a spoiled brat.

    Men players certainly get away with worse and I feel she was harshly treated on the court... but her reaction.. Jeez.

    I think she had a point about being coached from the stand... it happens all the time and I thought it was unfair for the Umpire to call her out on that while so many other players get coached from the stand.. Saying that her reaction was outrageous and sets a bad example. If she had swallowed her pride and made a complaint about this behind closed doors that would have been the best approach. She has been in the game long enough to know on court ranting is unproductive. I have no issue with the Umpire disciplining her for her conoduct and for smashing her racket. It is such a shame as it deflected away from her opponents great win. She completely disrespected her opponent by her antics.

    Guardian piece on Serena is pretty balanced although I have no idea why Pellegrini is getting involved :)

    Makes me laugh , banging on about her kids thinking shes a cheat , well she said it loud enough to bring it to their attention

    Then moved it to sexism

    Phew we escaped the racism one I guess .

    Dislike them both , they are not normally built women, and its been an unfair contest for a while in my humble view

    Poor winner
    This seems completely at odds with the sanctimonious rubbish you post on the politics forum.

    A man who is a greedy, offensive bully might be appealing to people who also identify with those traits. It doesnít mean itís ok to talk about peopleís mothers, wives, sisters and daughters like they are cattle.
