Much Praises To Serena

Go on girl! live you life how you want to live it and don't pay any attention to those who feel they should live your life for you. If you want to have ten different activities along with tennis, do so. It is your life and you have to live it how you want so that you can achieve self-actualization and happiness. So what if you lost a tennis match today! Is it the end of the world? No! I think not. Just a blip in the road of your life. There is always another match, another day and if you want it bad enough you know what to do! At least you are not amongst the lost men and women of this world who seems to have to take drugs (legal and otherwise) and have indiscriminate sex just to face their pathetic lives each day. Most of the people who criticize you are underachiever's anyway. The only high points in their lives seem to come from their negative thoughts and words.

I congratulate you on making an effort to play even when you were not in the best physical condition to do so. Yes, you lost but even your nay Sayers know within themselves that you are a much better player than your performance today. There is no reason for you to go into a press conference and sing praise to anyone. The news conference is about you, your performance and the state of your game, not about how anyone else's performance!

Personally I think she should have listened to her coach and skipped wimbledon. She clearly wasn't ready or prepared and a grand slam isnt a good time to come back from such a long layoff. Still, I applaud the fact that she tried despite the odds against her.

In a way it is kind of mysterious, how similarly this season evolves for both Australian Open champs.. Neither Marat nor Serena can get anything going at all..

I also applaud her and she has nothing to be ashamed of. With all the odds against her she still gave it her best shot and at some moments it appears should pull it off. It was painful to watch but I'm relieved that she can go home now knowing that she tried her best.

She should just go home, put her feet up, relax and attend a few fun functions. She should just take it very easy and not play another tournament until she is definately healthy. She already has a major for the year already and another is still ahead, therefore she has nothing to worry about. Move right along Serena because you are still ahead of the pack!!! Best wishes and a speedy recovery!!!

It is more important that people believe in our integrity than agree with our opinions.

Serena came, she tried and for not getting where she wanted, she still did well. I'll never fault Serena for coming and attempting to win.

They also won AO after beating the current Wimbledon champion in semifinals, having matchpoints against them, in a matches both of them were lucky to win.. And no titles since then.

The two AO champs couldn't care less about insignificant titles. Maybe their next coincidence will be repeat USO champions.

Why do you feel bad for her? She acted like a baby in her post-match interview... reminds me of the Serena of 1999. She has some maturing to do.

Praise for a player who does NOT make the effort - no thanks!
