Serena's Right

I don't mean to be prideful or perpetuate Serena's arrogance, but I remember a while back at a press conference, she told the reporters that, "I make people's careers." I think it's true. When players beat Serena, it's HUGE and without those wins, where would they be?

Sharapova (Wimbledon, WTA Champs)
Clijsters (WTA Champs)

and other wins over Serena started SERIOUS career advances

Henin-Hardenne (Charleston and French Open)

....something to think about

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Serena.[21]

Indeed....but its a BIGGER deal when you beat Serena, even this year, then when you beat say Lindsay.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

I totally agree with Serena. People should not bash her because she tells the truth. All one has to do is beat a Williams sister and you are automatically on the tennis map.

it wouldn't have mattered to Maria if she had beaten Vera or Lindsay or Pam Shriver in those finals. For her winning is what mattered.

To put this bluntly: Bollocks.

I totally agree with Yam's simple comment stating that players make theie own career. Just because they beat Serena doesn't mean all of a sudden BANG - There's your career. You don't even need to beat Serena to have a career. They already have one. That's why they're on the tour.

Ugh.

YOU HAVEN'T HEARD THE LAST FROM ME!
Because I'm still talking! That's right!

Wasteful, pointless randomness for your amusement.

A lot of people on the board say that Maria got more attention and her Slam win is considered better than Myskina's or Kuznetsova's because she beat Serena to win it, while the other two beat Dementieva. That is quite true.

Her slam win is better because she won Wimbledon, the ultimate GS tournament and because she's still so young.

A 17 year olds wins Wimbledon, and she's pretty. That's news, no matter who she beats.
Nadia beat Serena also. Plus Alina.
It's Wimbledon and 17. That's what matters.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
