Tennis troubles

Sixteen year old Wimbledon Junior Champion, Caroline Wozniacki, tells the line judge in their match at US Open to take off his sunglasses and not sleep on court.

She thinks she has done nothing wrong and goes on to say "you're so stupid", ostensibly at herself, at the next point.

The line judge reports this to the referee, who consults the supervisor. They agree to default her, which is obviously taken badly by the sixteen year old. What does she do to get back at the authorities? She blogs.
...After the match i went to the tournament director and asked him, why i got defaulted. And he said that the lineumpire said that i went straight to him, looked him in his eyes and talked really bad to him. But thats NOT true. Everyone that watched the match knows. It was a BIG lie.
I always thougth that sports was about fairplay and that the people that are trying to make the tournament happend, will tell the truth and not lie!...But today in a big tournament like US Open, where i had the chance to become number 1 junior in the world and win the tournament, a big lier broke my heart and the trust to the white sport! Right now when im writing to you im crying, and i hope that this is just a bad dream!
Wish blogs were around when a certain John McEnroe was growing up.
