An interesting thing coming from Jonas. Does he have any
special reason to not like the sisters? He's played with
Kournikova, so he should know his divas. He's also well known
and liked by a lot of people, so it would be surprising if he
would make such an attack without reason.
Serena Williams is the best in the family. She beat her sister
in the AO finals. But now, the super sisters are critizised
by Jonas Björkman.
Serena and Venus Williams played the finals in AO and dominate
the women's tennis. But the swede Jonas Björkman doesn't think
the sisters are good role models for the sport.
-They are very unpleasant toward people, he says.
Yesterday morning, Serena Williams, 21, became the fifth woman
throughout history to win four straight GS titles. She won
the finals in AO over one year older Venus with 2-1.
Right now there is no real opposition for the super sisters. But not everyone cheer for the american prodigies.
-They have very little respect for people and they live in a dreamworld, Jonas Björkman tells 'Radiosporten'. He's been touring for almost ten years, but never met a similar attitude among the other stars.
-They are unpleasant. If the security guards don't open the door correctly, they snub immediately. They are megadivas, Jonas says.
He likes to play mixed - he has played with Anna Kournikova - but would never stand side by side to any of the sisters Serena and Venus.
-Never with girls like that, he decisevly says.
Anyone know anything about this? Or is he just 100% racist?
