Dutch Article on Serena's ESPY Award



I translated into English:

2 weeks ago, the ESPY throphy was awarded to the female athlete who gave the best performance, this year, the biggest award went to Serena Williams, her dress that evening on the other hand...

Serena Williams says she would rather win an oscar for acting performance than yet another sports throphy.
However, her share in low-budget, nothing meaning movies is so futile, that her chances of winning one of those, are close to nothing.
On top of that, Serena needs lessons in fashion and color combinations before she can attend the real awards.
This Barbie-like combination with a way too deep decollete and way too high split, perfectly suits the rest of her image ON and OFF court: TRASHY!

=====================================

In my opinion, the author of this review is being way too harsh, the dress wasn't that bad, was it?
But oh well, I'm not a fashion critic and she is so...

....it's just an opinion.... so what?! Doesn't change the fact that Serena was awarded and earned best female tennis player/athlete honors!

Congratulations, Serena!!!!! Keep 'em talking and hating!

"They'll never win a grandslam title" LOL!
"They'll never be ranked #1" LOL!
"They'll never win a title on clay" LOL!
"All they do is hit hard" LOL!
"Venus will never win another Tier I title" LOL!
"Venus will never beat another top-5 player" LOL!
"Venus will never win another grand slam title" LOL!

The dutch seem to be obsessed with Serena lately, their doctors have nothing better to do than diagnose Serena's injury without even looking at her and now the press has nothing to write about.

That BELGIAN doctor was right. And it's not an obsession with Serena, these kind of expert's opinions are common.

i'm ashamed to admit it but i read that article in "tv familie" anyone who knows the magazine should know that it's practically an equivalent of the german "bild": lots of gossip and basically no news.

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

I do believe that the damned Dutch were instrumental in instigating the African slave trade as well.

So consider the source.

I read that article a couple of months ago and I don't remember it being that bad. From which newspaper did you translate this article Glenn? I read mine in "Het Algemeen Dagblad".

My friend tore it out of a magazine for me, I think it's a typical women's magazine like Flair or Libelle, it's about fashion and shit, my friend knows I like tennis, so she gave it to me.
