Booed Loit suffers loss

"The French player, who suffered a 5-7 6-2 6-2 defeat, was also subjected to heckling and boos from the home crowd because of her nation's anti-war stance."

It's one thing for the Montreal hockey fans to boo the US national anthem, and the Atlanta fans to return the favour... they're booing the national anthems, the countries, not the players, the teams. It's political, but it's not aimed at the people on the ice.

But to boo a solitary athlete like that, that's just pathetic. The level of discourse is hitting all-time lows lately.
