Anyone know why Serena insisted on walking out first in wimby Final?

The usual thing is for the lower ranked opponenet to walk out first. I just saw the conversation in which she was asked to let Vera go out first and she said, no, she was going to go first After all these finals, 16 to be exact- what happened?

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

her ego? mind games? maybe she just likes going out first? Not a big deal.

I seriously doubt that was the conversation.

Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn't given to you freely by another person, then it isn't worth having.

The 7pm Project an aussie news/comedy programmes showed that clip. Serena was actually asked to let Vera go out first and she said "NO, I will go out first'.

Whoa, the 7Pm Project was just mentioned off-topic but I can't stand Charlie Pickering.

Anyway it was shown live when it happened on the coverage I was watching and it was also very clear.

Re: Anyone know why Serena insisted on walking out first in wimby Final?

I watched it live as well and didn't hear it, and have watched the match twice now. And perhaps the top player is given the option of who walks out first. But whats the big deal really? I mean someone had to walk out first, why not the #1 player and the player who has won the event three times?

No. They said to her: "We're going to let Vera go out first, ok?"

And she responded "No, I will go out first".

In every grand slam that is the protocol, men or women- the lower seed walks out first! Serena made this choice for a very specific reason, boy would I love to know what that is- not to mention it is just courtesy to say 'no problem' and step aside.

Diva

One more reason to love her! (As if we needed anymore reasons).

PS - If the organizers and Vera didn't have a problem with it, then why are the insignificant posters on a messege board getting their panties all twisted?

She's more of a pathetic loser than a Diva me thinks.
