People are so sensitive.

I agree that she is playing ar too many tournaments and that maybe some of Patrick's doing, but I don't think she's doing it because she doesn't want to disappoint him, I think she's doing it because she wants to be known as the GOAT (or at least pass Martina/Chrissie) and she's working extremely hard to do it; just passing or equalling 18 slams is a real effort and no one ever thought that they will be passed or equalled and she is 1 slam away from doing it. That is some serious hard work being done at the age of 32. So I see that as the problem orn the reason, not Patrick.

Her sheer "will" will get her through this.

I watched the match in replay and he stayed stoic after big points when they showed him. Today and yesterday he was very closed on his expression face.
1/ He's been tweeting about her matches everyday.
2/ His face expression : same as always. He's not Redffoo or daddy Pova

Are you sure about that? No one posted any of his tweets lately.

Re: Courtside Bombshell: Sarin was seen Crying alone on her way back after practice

Serena revealed in her postmatch conference after the Kirilenko match, she had some really bad training sessions after she came to beijing, she was very stressed since she is such a perfectionist that she evened cried after the training session.

But in yesterday's post match conference after the Caro match, Serena mentioned she felt she played a really good match today, especially in 1st set, though she also played well in the 2nd, Caro somehow raised her level. Overall she said this was her best performance since she is in Beijing, so she felt really excited.

You do realize twitter is blocked in China right?

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."

Thank for the news.

I wish we could have articles from Chinese sport writers on each match, from their perspective on how they see these players, the WTA inroad in Asia, when China is a the leading player.

It would be really refreshing to see that perspective.

Re: Courtside Bombshell: Sarin was seen Crying alone on her way back after practice

His tweets have been very boring. Just statements of fact about timing of matches etc. Its been near twitter silence from most of the team. But really, who the hell knows. Could be the jet lag/smog is messing with them.

Serena said in another post match interview that the whole team went to the silk market together on her day off, so assuming she's telling the truth, that sounds kinda cozy.

But then how are they tweeting at all?

And they had no twitter interaction between US Open and Beijing, which seems different no?

And I know many don't care, but sue me, I'm curious.

I think they have their own version of twitter, just like they have their version of Google, although Google has a presence in China

Here is the excerpt in the OP

Re: Courtside Bombshell: Sarin was seen Crying alone on her way back after practice

From her very first match, Serena looked like she didn't really want to be in Beijing. She looked like she was forced to be there. She said she was tired after the US Open win and even withdrew from Tokyo citing fatigue and exhaustion. Fair enough. She shouldn't have to play if she's tired.

I'm just speculating here, but maybe Serena was reluctant to play in Beijing and wanted to withdraw from there as well, but was coerced into playing, either by the WTA or by Patrick. She wouldn't care if she was fined for not playing. She skipped the entire Asian swing last year because of injury. Maybe she just wanted to rest after New York?

But anyway, it could still be for any other reason.

Poor Rena. But it can't have been too bad, its prolly just cuz its the end of the season and everyone is a bit injured exhausted and emotional. Hope they get enough rest during the offseason.
