what excuse is Serena going to use this time?

the balls were too small?
the balls were too green?
the crowd sill thinks that Steffi Graff was a better tennis player than ME?!
the surface was too clay-ish?
the match should be played in the US where I always win?
I am the best anyway and I lost because my sister is sick, and her puppy got lost?

Safina just played better at crucial spots. Safina played that little bit better then Serena in the tiebreak. It's evident that isn't an "excuse" to give.

Venus Williams. Serena Williams.

Why would she have to give an excuse? Safina was better in the end and she won. Next match...

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Why don't you send her an e-mail and help her come up with one?

Serena Williams : You know, I didn't play well, in fact I play at 25%, and I lose in a third set in a final tiebreak, If I had played at 50%, I could easily won 6163

Re: what excuse is Serena going to use this time?

She was very, very gracious at the net and with the exception of the second set she played a good game so I don't see any excuses coming. She seems to quite like Safina so I think she'll take this loss on the chin.

Venus Williams

Re: what excuse is Serena going to use this time?

This is one of the rare occassions where Serena was actually outplayed, so I doubt she'll bother giving excuses

She has a inferiority complex to Safina

No excuse ... Serena got a little lax in that 2nd set and she couldn't put down the hammer in the 3rd because Safina now had a world of confidence. Serena still will do well next week and at the French!!!

Thats NEVER the case with Serena...its always "something" went wrong causing her to lose, hence never giving credit to her opponent

Re: what excuse is Serena going to use this time?

We probably won't see many excuses. However, Serena is surely upset with her serve (DF's + Low First Serve %), so we may hear her talk about that.
