Oh my god, this has nothing to do with Serena's skin color... I don't doubt she has experienced discrimination at various points in her life, but the criticism being leveled at her today is much deserved. Most of us were similarly disgusted with the poor sportsmanship demonstrated by Capriati, Sharapova, Roddick, McEnroe, etc. in the past.

Serena would do well to act more like Venus - now there's a classy lady.

Sharapova is an angel compared to Serena or McEnroe. Don't even bring her up here.

Capriati too. She was talking a lot but not in a threatening way.

Roddick is just a douche sometimes.

Sharapova | Jankovic | Pavlyuchenkova

“They are definitely a good example of how local communities can overcome the ‘victim syndrome,’ take greater control over their lives and build productive futures for themselves,” Ms. Sharapova said - UN Goodwill Ambassador

Good answer. I think Serena is the bad boy of tennis.
