During Sabine Lisicki's 6-4, 6-4 upset of Caroline Wozniacki in the fourth round of Wimbledon today, the two lady ballers re-enacted the infamous "Bumpgate" between Venus Williams and Irina Spirlea at the 1997 US Open.
Here's what the German had to say about the incident in question:
Q. Seemed to be an instant where you almost bumped at net at the changeover. What happened there?
SABINE LISICKI: You know, I don't know. We've been changing the sides all the time, you know, the whole match. I was always passing on the left side and she was passing on the right side. So, I don't know. She all of a sudden went to the side I was passing all the time, and we just bumped each other.
But, I mean, there's no big deal for me.
Q. You were a little bit unhappy. You had a quick word with the umpire.
SABINE LISICKI: Me?
SABINE LISICKI: No, it was her. She was discussing with him. I was just focusing for the next game.
Damn - Wozzi was NOT pleased by the incident. But I bet losing to Lisi for the second consecutive time in a big match must have felt a lot worse.
Plus they were wearing matching adidas outfits. I'd be pissed too.
UPDATE: "Move bitch...get out the way...get out the way" SO HYSTER. Thanks Uvijek!
