Re: BOMBSHELL: Serena might not be going to the Olympics!!!
Serena will probably go to the Olympics, because if she won't, that would be a crime. The Olympics' spirit is about having all the best athletics from all over the world to compete for the biggest sports event in the planet, so it's a shame if an individual or a group of people somehow manipulate the so called "rules" to prevent having the best there in the Olympics. Rules are designed to help choosing the right ones, ie the best ones, not to hinder the selection of contestants and give places to the inferior ones. If Serena is not there to compete, whoever won the gold medal won't have the satisfyingness of being the best at the Olympics.
In all other Olympics sports, like swimming, track and field, gymnastics, etc... reaching a required level individually in appointed sports events were enough to qualified without dealing with all the stupid rules. Tennis has just been introduced to Olympics since 1988, so it's relatively a young sports comparing to other sports with more history and traditions. However, the bulkiness and ineffectiveness in rules and regulations that causes controversies like these, Williams and Bartoli to name a few, won't help the creditability and the development of tennis as an Olympics Sports.
