Williams bias? 

It might be silly to think, but is there more than coincidence involved in the fact that Serena Williams' exit from the US Open last night and Venus' exit from Wimbledon this summer were both due in part to several costly judging errors? I didn't actually watch the Serena/Capriatti match last night, but I caught the highlights on Sportscenter where they showed very clearly a handful of points that Serena should have won but were called out. Although, in sports like tennis, the result of a match is never pinned to one single point, there is something to be said for momentum. I really like Capriatti and I'm rooting for her to win, but Serena was robbed. It's about time tennis implemented a replay system. At least for Grand Slam events.
