What did Pam say???!! Why'd she get booed?!   :rofl_2:

She covered Oudin's little sister eyes and made her spell believe. Of course she spelled it wrong. :rofl_2:


No, not that.

During the post-match interview with Caroline. Pam said something (assanine) and she got booed loudly.


From what I've heard, she said something like "you were the favourite today, but you'll be even more of a favourite in the semis against 'Wickmeyerrrrr'". The condescending way in which she pronounced Yanina's name was very tactless and disrespectful, and the crowd reacted to that. Quite rightly IMO.

Proof:

I :lust: the US crowd!
And then for Pam to be ignorant of her lack of class.
10 demerits for her.
Perhaps there's an apology on the way over the next day or so.

Nice to see the sharp NYC crowd pick up on that and scold her.
Apparently she had no clue. :(
CONK da ball!!!

The best part was when Pam Shriver embarrassed Oudin's 9-year old sister. CLASSIC!!!

As I was wandering the halls of Louis Armstrong today, I actually ran into Yanina and her crew.  Not as tall in real life as I imagined her to be.  Still, a cool, random moment.

Bah. I think they just wanted to boo. Or were over-sensitive (and that's saying something coming from me). Or couldn't hear it well. I don't think Pam meant any harm and was just nervous or something. I'm not a fan of hers but her comment was harmless to me.

2 Women's Semi's are later in the day today, with Clijsters vs Serena not before 8pm local time. But don't expect much if any play again today as forecast is terrible. Looks like we have a Tuesday finish (Womens Final Monday night) since the weather is much better Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Forecast looks a lot better now Chris.  It has stopped raining and looking at the forecast, there is a 4-5 hour window where play could get in.

I am pumped to see Serena take on Kim C.  I expect Serena to win, but I would looooooove to see Kim win this match up.  If Kim was not in the draw I am pretty sure I would be rooting on Serena to take the tourney.  :)
Good Luck on the Court!!!

It has been changing throughout the day due to the rain.  However, latest message on the U.S. Open website says that they hope to get the Wozniacki match started soon.  The rain had stopped and they were finished drying, but then a light drizzle came so now they don't know.
