Re: Why so much HATE and Disdain for Serena Williams????
Serena's held to standards that a lot of other players aren't. She's been arrogant, and has say things I'm sure she regrets, but she's in good company. Almost every player on tour has had those moments. Primarily because when most of these women start they're still young girls. The maturity and growth comes with experience. People seem more willingly to brush aside things in the past, except with regards to Serena. In some people's minds it's the perfect justification to propell their hatred.
With a lot of the hatred comes a lot of overly defensive fans. Serena fans, more than any other fan base, get lumped into a category of ignorant fans who only believe Serena walks on water. It's funny because it's so far from the truth. A lot of times us Serena fans are a lot hardier on her than some others- it's just not done from a place of hatred.
The real reasons why people have such strong negative feelings for Serena probably center around more serious issues. Issues that people like to pretend don't exsist. To be fair, I'm sure there are a number of people who don't like her just because. It's not always 'deep'.
She's her own person, playing by her own rules and some people will never get past that. Love her or hate her, you can't ignore her!!
