My Theory

Yes, you probably guessed it before you clicked on the thread--this is about Serena Williams. First of all, I'm just outraged about how she acted in this match. Don't tell me it was necessary to pump your fist at your opponent after such a good point. If it was Federer or almost any other woman player, they would have appreciated the point and smiled. Then to get angry and act like it was rude of her opponent to hit the ball at her at the net is ridiculous......It's perfectly legal, I'm sure Serena's done it before, and CHANDA RUBIN did this very act at the US Open 2000, and you didn't see either get all hot and bothered. And Chanda is one of the most respected and kind players on the tour...

BUT, I digress...

My theory is that whenever Serena sees a young player get pumped up, she feels threatened. She feels like she needs to put them "into their face" and let them know that they're playing Serena. The same thing happened w/Sharapova. Justine also brought this out in Serena...So I think in the coming months as Serena begins facing more young, good players, we'll see if this pattern continues and proves my theory true...

Visit MONICA!

I don't know. Serena has played young players ever since she started. She didn't
play a good match and was probably blaming herself for her mistakes. When Shahar
would hit a winner or something, she would take her anger out on her.

If you play tennis, I'm sure you don't act perfect all the time.

Not everybody can be like Venus

Let them eat cake.

I think she has a keen camera-awareness quite frankly, and plays the role of drama queen whenever she can on the court.

Well I have no idea what Serena had to feel threatened about. She was up 5-0 in the first set and Peer ain't exactly no beauty queen.

It never amazes me that you feel your opinion is worthy of a seperate thread when there are already 5 threads on the subject.

kwtennis there are like 10 threads discussing this issue. You could of just posted you hateful message in one of those threads, because your theory on this subject is not unique or special.

ROTFLMAO!!

When you brought up Sharapova, you lost credibility....the girl who is the most famous for her screams, turning her back to the opponent and make them wait before the point starts....

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Why worry. If she did nothing - she did nothing, If she plays in a state that relies on adrenaline and anger to get her through, the endocrinal system has enough destructive feed back loops to make her pay for it. Stressed out players don't win for long and are vulnerable to all sorts of physical problems. Karma wins OK.

There's like 4 or 5 other threads on this and you couldn't say this any one of them?

Bloody hell, I am a fan a Serena's but even I am getting bored of this bickering about her every move, word etc. People are obsessed. Does everyone who want to comment on this issue have to start a new thread? Please, stop it already!

I'm sorry. I wasn't aware that my opinion has already been stated in other threads...I tend to stray away from threads that are clearly meant to start bickering, which I don't enjoy reading, mostly because the amount of cursing and bogus logic that pervades the threads. My post was meant to be objective and rational...
