I don't think this is what the USTA had planned.

Thumbs down

That was very inappropriate. They also showed no respect for the individual achievements of these two ladies and what those achievements symbolize to the country of Belgium. Did the royal family come this time? It's probably best if they didn't. This kind of disrespect in their presence would only add insult to injury.

I've noticed that singers have stopped singing "The Star Spangled Banner" when they can get away with it because of this one high note that's hard to hit. But, the organizers should have had "The Star Spangled Banner" and the Belgian national athem with their flag at the opening of the finals. The USTA's inattention to that detail was tasteless and crass. They rushed, botched, and mutilated the trophy presentation, also. It's like if I were to invite a friend home and my family treated them poorly. What's your name? Oh, yeah, Christine HAR-DAN.

Tennis Fool, I just noticed the ark above Daniela's tears.
