Re: Serena: "The lady in the mirror is the ultimate opponent for me"

I don't see why it's seen as arrogance. Serena has shown already that she's at a different level than and and all opponents. It's all about executing her game.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Arrogance.

Even if your own self beats you, you still lost.
Who is saying otherwise?

You're reacting as if Serena is looking to invalidate any losses. SHe's simply stating what she believes to be the reason for her losing.

She can say whatever she wants but the truth is in the last 5 years, we had 5 different winners in Roland Garros. Serena can act like she is invincible over there but I'm sure all other players don't buy it.

I get your point but I was referring to all the hype in SS pre-clay season that no other player matters but pova and everything is on her racket on the dirt surface. Well, turn out pova couldn't stand the heat in the kitchen and had to find a way to save face.

It's not arrogance. She is basically saying whoever her opponent is is the most dangerous player to play, AND, also herself.

Let's see if there will be a place to hide in Paris.

What anti-climax today is! 2wks ago, did u even imagine that ATP tennis will be what your congregation will be left with to discuss in SS in a pova "Rome 3peat thread" few minutes after Rome final? Yep, sad indeed!
Don't generalise.

I never said Pova was gonna rule this clay season.

I was well aware. So don't go producing your doctored receipts.

Why so serious, son?! You and your pals were all: "oh the clay-season is just a formality..give it to Maria already, nobody is gonna beat her." Now that we all saw how THAT turned out, you guys get mad a Serena now?! funny, real funny.

Always bet on black!

THIS. And she didn't do that bad compared to last year, a title, a big final and QF(where she retired, she could have reached the final).

Now, if she can repeat her RG I'm sure a lot of people will say she dominated clay season but we're not there yet.

I hear you...ain't it something? They still haven't learned after all these years: when Serena is away then the mice can party, but Serena ain't gonna be away forever... and the fans found out the hard way.
