People! It is really late. We are just getting back from the MTV Video Music Awards where Serena showed up! ( We thought she would!) Regardless of how tired I am, I feel the need to say a few things of last nights semi and - yeah. I normally make all sort of jokes- we all know there is plenty of straight commentary- but here it is. Here's a response to Danny and just my words on this debacle-
A player cannot challenge a foot fault. The camera for challenges only follows the ball. That said- I truly believe that getting rid of the foot fault is not possible- there must be a line drawn for where a player lands his/her foot. That said! It doesn't need to be a FAULT. It should be- and this after much discussion with RR and myself- it should be A LET! That's right, a let. Like when the ball during a serve hits the top of the net. It IS a dumb call. But we can't get rid of the line for the foot to land. BUT IT SHOULD NOT BE A FAULT. This is our assesment. Larry Scott and other asswipes who make the rules - take note.
Now, as this blog is also a blog the lets you all into the homes and hearts of tennis watchers- we came home and there is a dead bird spread all over our house. Literally. We are grossed out. It's a dead bird -still warm-- spread out all over our house. We had fun at the Video Music Awards, but a bad coming home moment. Really, really gross.
We just got back from the VMAs! Serena was there!
