With success comes hate and jealousy.

They always come up with excuses;
Clijsters: 'she's virtually retired' - doesn't change the fact she hadn't lost at the USO since 2003
Na Li: 'she's inconsistent' - completely ignoring her brilliant form coming into the tournament
Kvitova: 'Been playing shit for months now' - even though she's still a top 8 seed.

People will run out of excuses one day, don't worry


... for some reason.
