Give her a damn break, I never liked the girl, always prefered her sister like 10 times, but I am starting to like her and I really feel for her.
People expect too much out of her, and when she losses everyone starts jumping at her, insulting her. Who cares what she said in her interview, she lost, what did u people expect her to say, I am so proud of my loss, Tian Tian is just too good of a player for me to beat, get real, tian tian will probably lose next round, not that I dont think she can be a good player, but today nearly everyone in the top 250 is dangerous.
Serena Williams is a great player, a great champ, often times I have been resented cause she has beaten the hell out of my players, but you have to respect her, she is a great champ. Everyone goes trough their slumps, some more than others, but look at Steffi, look at Martina Hingis. However I dont understand why people on this board can hate her so much, and jump on the I hate Serena bandwagon. Look at what she has accomplished, 7 grandslams, yet she doesnt even have 25 years. She is a african-american girl from a poor neighberhood, in her naighberhood people where getting shot while she was practising on the court with her father,(dont like Richard Williams, gives me a bad vibe, but at the same time kudos to him for getting his daughters at the top of the game) . I think its an amazing story and she has done so much for african-americans in the sport, and for tennis in general. She introduced a new sort of athletisism to the game, and raised the bar.
She might be in a slump, but she has time to comeback, and even if Serena never came back as before, never reaches the top spot or even wins another grandslam, she is still a champ, she has accomplished amazing feats which I hope only someday my faves can even get close to accomplishing.
Kudos To Serena I respect her and her game and wish her the best, I hope she only comes back stronger from this loss.
and a good job by Tian Tian, its not everyday a player beats someone like Serena with her accomplishments, and doesnt matter how she played.
Tian Tian sould feel good, good luck to her.
Get back up there Serena
