Todd Spiker over at WTA Backspin sums up my thoughts on the Blah vs. Aunt Pimmy verbal smackdown. In case you missed it, you can see it here.
Was Pammy being rude? Probably. She could have apologized and kept her voice down. Did James have any right to complain? Absolutely not. To quote Mr. Spiker:
For my part, I say Shriver should have talked louder, and maybe thrown in how she's a Hall of Famer while Blake is the most underachieving American tennis talent of the past twenty years. A choke artist par excellance (a couple of comeback wins last year don't erase that fact), Blake somehow doesn't find a problem with his J-Block group of supporting being rowdy and creating a ruckus at the U.S. Open (you know, doing everything they can to distract whoever Blake's opponent happens to be that day), but found it all right to jump on a single voice of someone doing their job from the perch provided to them by the All-England Club from which to comment on the match below.
I am so tempted to attend the US Open just so I can walk around with a bottle of Pimms, wear a pink "P-Block" shirt, and sit courtside at his matches with a microphone to commentate really loudly about all the ways he's fucking up the match and his career.
