I love Serena
It seems like there's so much negative energy directed at Serena on this board, and I just wanted to speak up for her.
I would have been happy for Venus if she won, and I feel bad for her.
But Serena right now is the better player. She has a great game and more than that, she has that #1 mentality that is so impressive -- she just refuses to lose. You gotta give it up to her for what she's accomplished, what so few women in the history of the sport have done.
I also like her personality a lot. I love her intensity on the court, she leaves everything out there, and also she's so outgoing. She's far from perfect -- she's done things over the years that I have criticized, but none of them have been that serious. She may have cursed under her breath, but she doesn't curse at umpires. She may be cocky, but she always says nice things about her opponents. And I just get the vibe that she's a nice person off-court, and whether she's nice or not, I just love the intense vitality that she radiates.
