What do you think of Serena's behaviour?

I've noticed during in Porsche Open and now in Moscow that Serena has behaved differently lately, she's much more in your face, she roars a lot, her game doesn't seem to be as good at AO, she struggles a bit during the matches and seems to shout to pump herself up. Now she almost thrashed her racket. To me she looks constantly in mad mood and annoyed with her shots and this seems to bring her down even further (at least it seems to me that she lost again sveta last time because of her poor played, but also this behaviour). Seems to go with her fighting spirit, sports anger to another level.

To me she was always mentally stable and calm, but now she's a bit out of control.

Re: What do you think of Serena's behaviour?

I thought she mostly behaves like that.Just a bit dramatising, cause she wants it really much.

Film, a mirror of the society. A good half-and-half mix of indie & mainstream.

Re: What do you think of Serena's behaviour?

I agree with you,the thread starter.

I think she is far from her best and she knows it. All shots she hits she could hit much better.She is simply not in form and not happy with her game..and she is less confident and therefore easier to beat

Re: What do you think of Serena's behaviour?

over the last few years, she has often looked like that.
Very miscontented (sic?) (with herself?), and just looking annoyed.
Seeing as she's a very outgoing person, it's not surprising. However, I don't rememebr seeing her do it in 2001/2002/2003

I agree.She was like that in FO and USO too.It was kinda sad too see her pumped her fist and yelling "come on" on each point against Sequera at FO.Very different than at AO.These days, when she's yelling "come on", it's kinda in a pathetic way and not in a conquering one.

Re: What do you think of Serena's behaviour?

i think it's rare for a champion to behave like that. i don't know what she wants to prove, everyone knows what she's capable of already. she seems really frustrated on the court and mouthing the word 'b!tch" to her opponents is just bizzare. maybe she has some anger issues.

I don't like her, I never have. I think she generally has a bad attitude. but I can understand her frustrations at not playing her best and therefore getting more aggressive.
