All He Can Say Is, Tanks for the Memories

April 06, 2002

Lisa Dillman wrote in her tennis column (April 2) that fans in Miami booed Venus Williams' apparent lack of effort against her sister, Serena, in their semifinal match last weekend.

My, my, my! Could those Miami fans be a bunch of racists like we supposedly were in Indian Wells a year ago when Venus defaulted her semifinal match against Serena?

Or could it simply be that tennis fans don't like it when a player (any player) appears to tank a match, whether it happens while in the locker room (Indian Wells) or while on the court (Miami)?
