Well Done, Juan by TERRY S on 15 September 2009 5:21pm
Is anyone as impressed as Don and I were by Juan Martin Del Potro's straight set semi-final win over Rafeal Nadal at the US Open Tennis the other night(well it was nightime here anyways)? Nadal just got slaughtered! This guy is amazing. Shame he wasn't so dominant in the final, though he did win, which is great.

On a not-so light note, Serena Williams behaviour was shameful! I thought that kind of nonsense behaviour died out when Mcenroe retired. Obviously, and sadly, I was wrong.

Yeah, she (and all other he-women) should never be seen on television again. But she has an excuse...'...the heat of the moment' and all that.

The TV clown who choose what we see should not have broadcast it. He/she has no excuse.

Yes Terry I'm impressed!!! I love Nadal and was a bit sorry to see him lose but Juan's win was well deserved. That's why I love tennis, so versatile and unpredictable.

Serena is and always has been a spoilt brat, never liked either of the Williams sisters. Ungracious shameful behaviour. I was wondering, the fine she had to pay, does the lineswoman receive any of that money? After all, it was her that was abused.

Pete what's a he woman? Who are the other ones of which you speak?

I don't follow tennis, but have a good friend in L.A. who does. She always saw the Williams sisters as lacking class and grace. She is a brat and I don't know what tennis does, but she should be sanctioned.

Well, that other William's sister for starters. another actor, I think her name is Grace **** with really short hair, and a female Canadian hockey player, Haley Wickenheiser. There are others, some of whom look like and appear on Oprah.

Any woman who looks and acts like she needs a medical gender test and who looks like I would be scare to fight in a sanctioned MMA event. Never mind women who would be good livestock in any rodeo. These ladies can be considered he-women.

But I love the tennis. Too bad they need a seperate event for the William's sisters...mixed singles, or other species or...
