WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bah, Serena!!! I would be in a movie with Kirsten Dunst anyday!

And if Anna Kournikova can read crappily off a card, I think Serena can do it too. LOL!

oh bo0! I wanted to see why the local commentators refer to Serena as "theatrical".

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

I think she said that she wanted to be challenged and playing a tennis player really wouldn't improve her acting skills. Apparently, she's got many other offers to choose from...

She is there to win a grandslam not have a bit part in the movie. I dont blame her. All her effort needs to be on defense of her title.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Serena

She's right. She needs to go for roles that challenge her. I mean why do a part in the sport you play in? She applies this same philosophy to the clothes she wants to design (evening gowns, etc.). The Williamses don't want to limit themselves or be labeled as just a tennis player. They're doing everything to ensure that by avoiding all things related to their current career in relation to their future careers. Those are some smart girls.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

They only wanted her so kristen could beat her on court for the movie. Whatever. She was right to turn it down.
