Richard will soon goo off on her she is so annoying

Why the hell is she trying to tell these two young women how to live their lives. Serena already dissed her in her last interview why don't these people learn and understanding that V&S are not single minded individuals.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/07/we...obbins.html?em

“I dispute the perception that the Williams sisters are only around because of these outside interests,” Carillo said. “They are around in spite of that.”

Carillo, a former professional player herself, says she believes that elite athletes should live single-mindedly and not waste time, especially when they are as talented as the Williamses.

Serena came into the Open with eight Grand Slam titles. Venus, after beating Serena at Wimbledon this year, has seven. Ten of those combined 15 major titles came by 2003.

“I thought they were going to break every record and co-own the tour forever,” Carillo said. “Take the case of Steffi Graf. Look what she left behind. She didn’t take a break.”

Graf, who turned pro at 13 and retired at 30, owns 22 career Grand Slam titles. But Venus and Serena do not talk about that record.

Carillo admits she is imposing her own narrative on them — but perhaps we do, too, if only because we are never sure who they are or what they ultimately want. For now, Serena is clear.

No one cares what Carillo has to say, everyone knows no one in the williams camp gives a flying fcuk about her opinion. This is the same person who watched Serena beat MS at the AO and at the end of the match say, "I still think Maria is the better player" ... which just proves she struggles with accepting the reality of what is right in front of her face.

Re: Richard will soon goo off on her she is so annoying

I thought everyone in the media are past that time when they bashed Williams sisters for reason or no reason. Isn't it like SOOOOOO yesterday?

We should appreciate them still playing and not question why and how, etc. Let's just enjoy it.

Vassilissa is my girl............

Re: Richard will soon goo off on her she is so annoying

She contradicts herself so much it's not even funny.

"Serena's skills are in decline"

"Sharapova is the better player"

Yet somehow we're supposed to believe that all along she thought Serena was capable of, and was looking forward to watching her surpass Graf's achievements.

It's a cheap backhanded compliement by Carillo at best. She should just concentrate on commentating on the match.

When I heard her say that I was in shock for like five minutes. Then I remebered it was Mary Carillo.

I don't really understand, Carillo of all people just has no right to say such things. She would never know how she would deal with such success, she never had it.

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.

Hmmm, waste time where exactly?

Now, back to reality, Carillo… Williams Sisters are on the court, trying to do their best (as Serena stated explicitly in her most recent interview) and winning matches. Her tiresome obsession with Serena and Venus clearly needs to be cured, urgently!

Precious and fragile things
Need special handling...

I pray you learn to trust
Have faith in both of us
And keep room in your hearts for two

Re: Richard will soon goo off on her she is so annoying

It's really disturbing how much Mary Carillo is obsessed with Venus and Serena not playing more tennis and having outside interests. She can't have a discussion about the sisters without being upset with their decision to do what make them happy.

As a Williams fan, I wanted them to play more. But I got over it, because I realized a long time ago that it was not my decision to make. I couldn't control their lives and tell them what to do. Now, seeing how Carillo continues to bash them over the years at every opportunity she gets for not playing more, I'm convinced more than ever before that if I were the sisters, I wouldn't want to play more tennis either. Having to read and hear her complaints constantly wouldn't encourage me to be anywhere near close to her.

And this is the same woman who was one of the first critics/commentators to say that "Venus and Serena were bad for tennis" when they were dominating. Something is definitely wrong with her. She needs to get some help to get over this obsession, because the sisters are not going to change their way of life to please her or anyone else.

Re: Richard will soon goo off on her she is so annoying

Serena's been great this year, showed up at way more tounraments than it's ever seemed, for her, and she's one win away from the World #1. How much more can you want from her?

And all these comments she makes here are so rehashed and are just old news.
It's upsetting, because I really do think Serena is doing a lot better, but I'm worried all this criticism is going to turn Serena off from continuing to play so often.

gone

Re: Richard will soon goo off on her she is so annoying

according to Carillo;

They're bad for tennis.
Their matches are fixed.
They don't play enough to suit her.
They're not successful enough.

Ok, got it Mary. I think the term 'hater' was coined just for you.
