Why I think better of Serena now
As an Aussie....and the ludicrously little amount of coverage we get here of the WTA....to see Serena shed a tear shows not only does this lady have a heart....but opened her heart for a short moment and allowed all of us fanatics a chance to see her behind the Serena Slam persona.
This is a young lady who has achieved what 98 percent of the human race would be ineligable of achieving....at her age I was still trying to work myself out.
I saw a split shot with seven sunrise show this morning...of both Serena and Justine at the particular moment...yes Justine put her hand up....but yet it's up to the umpire....there is someone there to catch foot faults and employed to do so...why is he not looking at the returners box?......yes what Justine did was wrong....and I have lost appreciation of her for it...but she was trying to make her first final in all fairness.
Going back to my point of coverage of WTA in the Media here (Australia)....I loathed the Williams sisters last year....now I realise they are just champions with alot of pressure on them.
I've already posted in a different post that I enjoyed reading a Venum Williams article and spent 2 hours typing it out LOL....Serena has been foreign to me.....but to see this shows me she is vulnerable....but I truely pity her next opponent to be honest....Eye of the Tiger.
Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena
, then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******Pending membership for the Ash Barty Return Band Wagon*****
