    And that's what gets to the point Serena tried to make in her appeal to Brian. Guys do this all the time. Roddick was fond of words like "incompetent", "stupid," etc. Serena called Carlos a "thief." And boom, game penalty.
    And from Serena's presser, the limelight will be back on sexism in tennis, because this was pointed out. The men can curse a blue streak and not get so much as a warning, let alone a game penalty.

    She seemed so pitiful during the trophy presentation and it was so sad, because she should be able to celebrate since she played so well. I hope she will be ok. It almost seems she could fall into a funk because of this.

    Chrissy just advocated for coaching from the stands. Yeah let’s see how that works out when a coach is literally shouting instructions at his player from point to point.

    .@espn just showed Serena and coach while he was “coaching”. She wasn’t even looking. Believe what you want.

    Hardly a surprise that Mardy doesn’t know the rules. A coach doesn’t get a free pass just because his or her player didn’t see it.

    I don't think she'll be in a funk because of this. Naomi can be a ball of nerves. She's in shock. I don't think it's just about what happened at the end. She was in shock after her Indian Wells win as well and there was no controversy. Hopefully she doesn't have the comedown she did from that win, but given how much bigger this is, she might. But it won't be about this ump incident. Her reaction, she shock, her not jumping up and down the way it seems many here assume she would've otherwise, is very much her IMO. She would've been a little more excited and had a little more of a reaction, but it wouldn't be anything over the top if I had to guess. So often she's happy on the inside, more than projecting that glee outward in a boisterous manner.

    That's what's happening now - the coaches just shout instructions from the stands - I was sitting near Sloane Stephen's coach at last year's Rogers Cup - it was constant throughout the match.
