Richard Williams Thought Justine Was Vulnerable

Richard Williams saw the vulnerability in Justine after playing Serena.This is what he said after the match.


"Watching Justine, she seems to be very a timid person," Richard said. "When she loses a point or gets behind, she can't stop looking at the stands. That's not as tough as I thought she was, and after watching Serena play her today, I'd say she's about as mentally tough as a duck on a dry lake. I thought she was as mentally tough as a duck in wet water but that is not true at all. You see her look up in the stands and have that sorrowful look on her face. That is scary. I wouldn't want to coach no one like that."

Re: Richard Williams Thought Justine Was Vulnerable

If she has that same look like Maria usually has when playing Serena or Venus at Wimby then that isn't good.

Re: Richard Williams Thought Justine Was Vulnerable

richard thinks too much, no actually thats a good thing. vee and ree surely appreciate the fact he keeps himself informed. but he TALKS too much. he shouldnt be saying bad things about other players when he's the coach of two active players.

Re: Richard Williams Thought Justine Was Vulnerable

Love Rena and Vee but I'm no Richard fan although he can be right about some things. He just talks too much and they obviously don't want to share.

Richard knows what he's talking about. If Justine is so tough, why does she have to keep looking at the stands to get coaching signals from her coach after EVERY freaking point in every single match?

Re: Richard Williams Thought Justine Was Vulnerable

Justine and Carlos are a team, they always have been and they always will be. If it mentally helps Justine to look up to the stands for support and encouragement from her coach then so be it, good for her, who cares, get over it. What kind of moron would make a statement trying to put someone down over soemthing so pointless???

Re: Richard Williams Thought Justine Was Vulnerable

In Justine's defense she has been through a lot this year (how quickly we forget). She is only human and some people deal with personal problems better than others. I think it was actually quite insensative for him to make remarks like that considering what she has been through this year with her divorce and trying to get her relationship back with her family and all.

Re: Richard Williams Thought Justine Was Vulnerable

Richard talks too much. I like the Williams Sisters, but Richard sometimes makes me turn against them. He talks way too much. I think he is too animated in the box over there.

You don't win 6 slams by being mentally weak. You're an idiot if you think so.
