I think I'm starting to grow as a tennis fan.

I'm starting to get past this whole Serena-loathing thing. She's actually come across to me as a lot more gracious than she used to be, and I'm really starting to appreciate her game. I was thinking that I would much rather see her win the French Open than Vaidisova, Sharapova, Henin, or Kuznetsova. I would throw Clijsters in there too but I don't think she's playing. I still hate hate it when she says "the only player that can beat me is myself", though.

It also could be possible that the less Serena plays (and wins, and beats my favorites ) the more she's faded from my mind and now I've found even more players to h8 on.


Woe is me.

Re: I think I'm starting to grow as a tennis fan.

Glad to see you grow. Embrace your inner-Serena. I actually met her at a signing at Macy's when she was 17. She was huge in person and genuinely a nice person. I wished her luck at the Chase, which was the season ending at MSG that year. She's a lot of fun.

Serena has always been more gracious than your average tennis snob ...

Hey, if I were to think I was somebody else, Serena's not such a bad person to psychotically become.

Serena is a great sportswoman. I have some issues with other aspects of her life, but on the court, there isn't anyone more down the line (no pun intended) than Serena. I think she is also very gracious, and, within the sport, an outstanding role model.
