Serena Williams post-match interview" I just don't wan't to be here"

Like I said MOFO's, she clearly had no interest in playing that match! There is no other excuse for losing that match with that score, besides her not having an interest in the match!

Re: Serena Williams post-match interview" I just don't wan't to be here"

PARIS -- For Serena Williams, missed chances came in a flurry Friday at the French Open.

She shanked overheads, hit wild volleys and squandered seven break points. The net result: a stunning third-round loss to Katarina Srebotnik, 6-4, 6-4.

The hasty exit matches Williams' earliest in nine visits to Roland Garros and guarantees a first-time women's champion. Williams, who won the French Open in 2002, was the lone former champion to enter the draw.

"I missed a lot of easy shots and a lot of key points that I felt like could have turned the match around," a subdued Williams said shortly after the loss. "I wasn't able to capitalize."

Williams also lost in the third round in 1999.

The 27-year-old Srebotnik earned the biggest victory of her career. She has only one win over a player ranked higher than the No. 5-ranked Williams, beating No. 4 Amelie Mauresmo at Zurich in 2005.

No. 2-seeded Ana Ivanovic reached the fourth round by beating 17-year-old Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 6-1. Ivanovic won 17 of 21 points at the net.

Williams, who played the day's first match on Court Suzanne Lenglen, converted only one of eight break-point chances and was 0-for-6 in the second set. She repeatedly set up points well but failed to finish them, losing 14 of 21 points at the net.

"There are a lot of things I would try to do different, but you can't rewind time," Williams said.

Her mother and coach, Oracene Price, said Williams has "been in a funk. It's not like her. She wasn't herself."

In the final game of the first set, Williams dumped an easy overhead into the net. Four points later, she worked her way forward but blew a volley, then bent over in dismay and pressed her forehead against the tip of her racket handle.

Another botched overhead cost her in the sixth game of the second set, helping Srebotnik to reach 3-3.

"I wasn't nervous," Williams said. "She was getting a lot of balls back, and I might have let that get into my head. She was just making some shots I don't think she's ever made before, or she probably would be in the top two."

When Williams fell behind she turned up the volume, grunting with almost every shot and screaming in celebration when she hit a winner. But she was unable to rally, and the No. 27-seeded Srebotnik kept her cool down the stretch.

In the second set, Williams hit an ill-advised drop shot into the net to lose serve and fall behind 5-4. She saved two match points in the next game, but on the third yanked a forehand wide for her 25th unforced error, then met Srebotnik at the net with a grin and handshake.

Williams was less gracious in her postmatch news conference, explaining her demeanor by saying, "I just don't want to be here."

Not a shock, she didnt play like she wanted to be there, and why should she want to perform in front of the French, they're hateful.

Totally delusionnal comment (I don't think she believes any of the things she's saying here, at least I hope for her that she doesn't)

I always love the part she says when one point would always turn the match around. But the fact is Kata played better than her.

She never wants to be there when she loses.
Typical Serena.

uhh yes one point can turn a match around. Serena converts BP when Srebotnik serves for the match. Wanna bet Serena holds and Srebonik folds. Or Serena converts any of her bps in the 2nd I would bet good money Srebotnik would've faded and Serena would've gotten control of her shots. don't be stupid. one or two points can always turn a match around. Every single player has said this.

I'm sorry, but it's a lame excuse to tell that you don't want to be here. You just lost, of course than you didn't want to be here!
