What a mess in here
Topsy-turvy match, I didn't expect Garcia to suddenly up the ante and take the second set like that. A lot of fight from her this match, good to see. Serena is so tough as usual to pull through at the end though, champion. I see so many complaining about her grunts/come on's, as if she just started doing that today?
I mean I didn't see the match so I don't know but the backlash is too much.
On the other hand, some people need to stop painting it like Serena's some super special target for hatred. She's been the overwhelmingly dominant player the past couple years and she has a fiery on-court persona. Of course she's going to have vocal haters, she's not the first. Wozniacki in 2010/2011/2012 was getting brutal hate and criticism all the time. Errani was mercilessly picked upon last year while getting very little support.
IMO on MTF Nadal gets more hate than Serena gets here, but for similar reasons. Dominant player, clutch fighter, on-court ferocity and will to win. Plus on-court habits/antics that get magnified 100-fold by haters as a result of them being so good.
Just stop trying to make it "Serena against the World", when in reality it's "TF hates everyone, especially if you're good though".
