Yahoo! Sportsí top 10 sporting villains of 2011(Guess what WTA Girl is #2)

Serena Williams comes in 2nd on the list and if you read the full list she is the highest ranked athlete since the two guy sharing number 1 spot are NBA Owners..Full story HERE

"2. Serena Williams

Things were going so well for Serena. After a trying year in which she injured her foot and suffered blood clots in her lungs, the tennis superstar was back to her dominant self on the court this summer. She entered the US Open as the prohibitive favorite, having won two straight tournaments entering the year's final Grand Slam, and cruised to the final without dropping a set. But at the first sign of trouble, she snapped. Two years after she threatened to kill a lineswoman and shove a ball down her throat, Serena took exception with the chair umpire's ruling that her shriek had interrupted the swing of Serena's finals opponent, Sam Stosur. Serena lost it once again, saying umpire Eva Asderaki was "a hater" and "ugly inside" and essentially telling her not to walk past her in a hallway, lest the umpire get beat up. During the whole tirade, Serena confused Asderaki with Louise Engzell, the umpire who sanctioned her during that infamous blow-up in 2009. Engzell also has blonde hair worn in a high ponytail but she is not Eva Asderaki."

So what do you think should Serena been on this list at all and if she should she really be coming in at number two???

I for one think she should of came in number one...she once again showed little class on the worlds stage and threaten the safety of an official. That for me is very sad and frankly pathetic of Serena Williams. She is the beat player to walk on the court since Steffi but she is hurting her greatness by acting like that.

The Villians Sisters

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I wouldn't even wipe my ass with any article written on Yahoo!. Who seriously uses that site still?

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

old story

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Although Yahoo is not a worldwide but a local American website, I guess they are right on the matter. Serena Williams' attitude was shameless.

Yahoo! writers, especially their sports writers are among the worst writers in the world. They don't check facts, they get the most simplistic stats/names/facts horribly wrong. My second grade nephew can put together a more in depth sports article than any one of the peons writing for Yahoo!.

Re: Yahoo! Sportsí top 10 sporting villains of 2011(Guess what WTA Girl is #2)

If that was the second worst thing an athlete has done this year then athletes must have magically turned into saints in the past year.

I mean seriously, when we've had athletes who have been involved in brawls, had dui's, been implicated in drug rings, rapes etc. it's an absolute joke. This incident was so blown out of proportion. Yes, it was disrespectful, rude, and childish but it doesn't make it worse than physical altercations and actual crimes that have been committed repeatedly by athletes in the four major American sports.

Edit: Should have read the article that it was for on the field incidents. Even so, there were plenty of brawls and players stomping on other players heads etc. that were a lot worse than this.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

The list is about stuff done on the field of play not stuff done behind closed doors. If it was I am sure they would be at the top of the list.

This. Yahoo! is fluff journalism at best. It's for people who have the slightest knowledge about anything.
