Crazy to think that Serena was 2 points from the match, 5-1 up in the TB. Then just fell apart.
Yes the French crowd got upset because the referee took a point from the French player because she made a noise during a point. The girl had cramp and that is why she made a noise, this of course made the crowd see red. The ref was given the bird too what an up and down match.
The umpires have been very strange with the cramp.
Bogomolov Jr got a serious case of cramp or a hammy injury (not sure which) at Deuce, 4-5 down in the 5th set against Clement. Clement won the point to get his first match point. But this was on Bogomolov's serve. So obviously a massive stage in the match with Clement on the brink, but could easily be back with serve within a few points.
However the umpire refused to let Bogomolov Jr have the trainer on. Bogomolov tried to serve but couldn't even get the toss-up right. He then got a time violation
. Unbelievable. Most bullshit umpiring I've seen. A time violation for being in physical pain? He then had to retire, because he couldn't take the serve and was about to have the point given to Clement anyway due to the time he was taking.
Just ridiculous. No common sense whatsoever.
