Venus Williams... always understated and dignified disappointment even when losing.
OK. I am biased

If someone post those gifs, others will come back and say, but she won that match!!!
I can't post the Serena gif, I don't have the link due to never ever seeing it.

I've never seen Serena cry on court/being close to tears apart from the FO last year. A match that she did in fact lose (I was livid, I really wanted her to win the FO, and thought she had a great shot at it.)

To put it into perspective though, I have never seen Maria cry on court apart from the olympic match either.

So you have to great champions who had a recent sore moment on court and only one is being exploited. I think it's sad.

I remember (severely injured, broken thumb, got up on wrong side of the bed, unfit, rusty) Serena looking helpless and pouty during the 2nd set of her QF match against Justine at the 2007 USO, when Justine was peeling off lucky shot after lucky shot.

"I am my own heroine".

(after dramatic 3-set AO 2013 final, where she took 2 nasty spills and twisted her ankle).
