After looking at the tape it appears the ball hit Martinez; if so, she should have conceded the point.
As to why she did not, my impression is that the Williams sisters are the least popular women in tennis. The cheat (ever watch Venus ask for bathroom breaks at inappropriate times, she doesn't even know the rules!), make excuses, are rude and ungracious and self-serving. Frankly, I love tennis but I never watch the Williams sisters play. I can't stand the grunting, the petulance and the drama.

First of all, to the person who said the thing about federer heading the ball, the point was actually already over and he was just doing that for the hell of it.
But about the whole cheating thing, i don't think it is THAT big of a deal. Yeah, she got hit the ball. Yeah, the honest thing to do would be to admit it. But it's really competitive and people try whatever it takes to win. If you watch a juniors match it is unbelievable how much more they cheat. THAT is absolutely ridiculous. I think Serena was out of line calling her a cheater. She was making too big of a deal about it instead of focusing on her own game. It was still wrong to lie, but Serena made it all dramatic like she always does and therefor i feel no pity for her. In my opinion, what Serena did was worse sportsmanship than what martinez sanchez did.
Sorry, i know that wasn't the answer that you were looking for, but that's the way i feel.

Oh yeah - shows cheater want to cheat and still win. How is that possible. Probably the umpire was unable to see and still do not understand how he gave the point even without asking any questions.
It is the media making big news with a small incident. Serena moves on and the truth caught up with the loser.
When the media asked Serena - she openly said it was cheating. But when the media asked Sanchez she said it was silly to call her a cheat. Dumb loser!!!! Probably Letterman or Leno will pick this for their show.

shame on Serena. it was only 1 point ! maybe the umpire didn't see it !
did you see Federer against Del Potro in AO 2009 ? when Federer was up 40 - 0 he had a very short and bouncing ball,, he headed the ball (yes just like in football / soccer) to finish the game,, Del Potro and the umpire didn't complain.

I'm hard pressed to call Martinez a cheater. What it is is poor sportsmanship. Classy competitors don't accept points they haven't earned. The umpire is the one who blew the call though and deserves the blame IMO.
