Serena Looks Ahead



Well Guys I Lost Today,

I played like garbage! It was a horrible display of unforced errors and simply girl gone MAD!!! (I was the girl gone mad)

Anyways my opponent did play her heart out, in a way I am glad I lost to her instead of in Rolland Garros. I really want to do good there, and this has been a wake up call for me. I can’t play bad and expect to do well; tomorrow I will be hitting the practice courts and training until my legs go out. I am not a fan of losing, so I have to find a way to stop this from happening.

It was funny when I lost I was in the locker room and I could hear the entire players lounge really loud like really happy and joyous. Like down goes the champ! Someone beat her!!! It was like a big hoopla.... I just smiled to myself thinking you just wait... just wait......

On the other side, she could take this as some nice compliment. No one expected her to lose, because her form is strong. Better that way, as nobody would give a shit about her loss, right. ;) The respect is back, that's for sure. She earned it.

May 9th, 2008, 10:48 PM
This is why I love Serena Williams. I hope she doesn't get injured. I agree with most of what she said. To say she played like garbage is a little lucky-shots-ish but she did serve like garbage so whatever. She knows she should not have lost. I think if she can eliminate performances like this, keep this attitude and remain uninjured, she will surely win the French, and then the sky is the limit, I mean who can stop her?

DragonFlame
May 9th, 2008, 10:55 PM
she's completely right :yeah: good attitude. This is how it's supposed to be, legendary champions need to be feared.

Serena, Justine and Venus are the ones that belong to that category right now(sharapova getting there), People should scream of joy when they lose cause they hardly get the chance. That's how it's supposed to be: Striking fear. Legends will bounce back every single time hitting other people in the stomach in the process.

I mean it's better she lost earlier so she can stop and find out what's wrong.

In my opinion she played like shit in the Family Circle Cup final but she didn't mind because she won there.

But now she played badly and didn't win and I think everything will be perfect for Serena. She'll train more.

Those players, those bitches, that were laughing will get there ass whooped when they face Serena. I really hope Serena knows who were talking shit about her so she can put her foot in their ass.

I think Serena played a very good match, minus the serve - not that many unforced errors. Dinara played the match of her life : THAT was weird, I mean she was supposed to choke some time during the third. But she didn't.

They never said 'down goes the champ'. The key word in that sentence is "like", she's just assuming they were cheering about that. :)

I guess they were rejoicing that they didn't have to play her...must have been JJ and Ana and their camp...little did they know :tape: But Rena shouldn't take that to heart...bet they did the same when Justine went down...cause Justine and Rena are the ones to fear. Serena will have the last laugh, though...she who laughs last, laughs best. ;)

Her assumption about the noise in the players' lounge seems strange - almost hypersensitive. I really doubt that a bunch of players were cheering that she lost. Even if they felt that way - they wouldn't let it out like that.

:weirdo:

Do you really think that JJ and Ana are in any ways friends of the Russians (apart from Kirilenko)? Additionally Ana had stated she would have LOVED to meet Serena so... And rightfully so because meeting her for the first time this year at RG it will probably be as disastrous as against Davenport.

It was most probably Dementieva and the Bielorussians cheering in Russian.

No, I'm sure the locker room is usually pretty quiet and all of a sudden everyone is laughing and rejoicing, right after Serena loss her match. I doubt it was coincidence. Either way, it put a fire under Serena and is going to motivate her to win the French so Fuck whether it's true or not, :lol:
I think it is though, :p. I can just see Jankovic celebrating and look what happened to her, :lol:

May 10th, 2008, 12:45 AM
Serena is kidding herself.
She played quite well in the final set, Dinara was just better.

Players look only as good as their opponents let them. If the opposition doesn't hit them off the court or make them look bad otherwise, they tend to look great. "Quite well" is not well enough to make a player like Safina look bad.
Serena can make a player like Safina look bad as she did in the first set. But, Serena has been struggling with her mental game lately. In the last three finals she went away for long periods of time, but managed to eventually come back. It happened against Schnyder in India, Jankovic in Miami (big time) and Zvonareva in Charleston. This time her mental weakness cost her in the end. She really doesn't need to improve her strokes or fitness anymore. She needs to ask Safina for the number of the sports psychologist who helped her. Serena should have closed it out in two, but her new found mental streakiness prevented her from doing just that. The extra confidence Safina got in that second set eventually made the difference.

She´s really pathetic. Obviously players started to think their chances were more after Henin and Serena lost but saying they were laughing because of that... is pathetic.
Again she doesnt show respect to her opponent. "I played like garbage" and "my opponent did play her heart out" thats the way she lost, is what she wants to say. She was convinced she was going to win in the 3rd, but today it was different and she didnt like and is giving excuses.
If she´s so good why she also loses many matches during the year?
With this stupid comments she really doesnt deserve the respect i see the other players have for her.

Congrats Dinara, good win :worship:

I think it's mostly a defense mechanism. She hears someone laugh and she'll think they're laughing at her. If she walked by a crowd and over heard "yeah that idiot" she'd think they were talking about her. So she takes that idea and goes on the attack. If she really realized that people do respect her accomplishments she'd act differently.

Well Serena talks the talk but she also walks the walk. If her words don't fill you with foreboding then you don't know Serena. Relax is the last thing the players should do. So I hope they don't have your attitude. They need to be ready for when this girl unleashes herself.

She played bad? She played like she plays lots of times... that´s her level, she can´t play always her best game which is normal, but that wasn´t definitly her worst.

About the second part of your post and if you want to provoke, you lost your time because im not disappointed at all because i never believed in the accusations and probably you also don´t... maybe you just want to provoke like your favourite player likes to do, so naturally you like her...

She didn't elevate her level enough while Dinara stayed at a high level. It's not a secret Serena has been having mental lapses over the past two tournaments. She really needs improve that aspect of her game instead of allowing her opponents to gain confidence in the second set because her level drops significantly. She did state Safina played well in this match so I really don't understand why people have a problem with her criticizing her own level?

she does have lots of people wanting her to lose. I'd say everyone else on tour would prefer Serena to lose otherwise why would they be playing.

I like how people who were not there and have no clue as to what really happened are trying to say what they believed actually happened. How could you possibly know? Have you ever played on the WTA Tour? have you ever been in a WTA locker room? Do you have any experience whatsoever on the WTA Tour? And more importantly were you in that locker room or do you know someone who was?? Yeah I didn't think so.

And MatchpointPRT you are a racist so why don't you just come out w/ it and be honest to yourself...you'll be a better person for it.

All this "watch out you other players, revenge is coming" shit, it's only a bloody game! if you really want voilence go to bloody Iraq or somewhere(and take that dummy sucking prick Frontier with one of you please!)

I think a lot of players are jealous about Serena,she gets media attention wherever she goes.She earned it by winning grand slams and showing the world entertaining tennis.I think Jelena and the Russians are totally jealous specially Dementieva,Vesnina,and headcase Rodionova.I think Serena should ignore these losers and focus on herself,I know there is a lot of bitchiness going on specially from the Serbians.She should let her racket do the talking and it will start talking soon in Rome Venus will be there she wont feel lonely in the locker room.:p

she's completely right :yeah: good attitude. This is how it's supposed to be, legendary champions need to be feared.

Her fans want her to be feared. That`s for sure, but she wasn`t feared today, and cannot count on being feared in the future. The best bet is to win matches with her racket. Trash talk may work with some but is hit or miss with others. I wish her the best with her renewed training. :)

she does have lots of people wanting her to lose. I'd say everyone else on tour would prefer Serena to lose otherwise why would they be playing.

I like how people who are not their have no clue as to what really happened are trying to say what they believed actually happened. How could you possibly know? Have you ever played on the WTA Tour? have you ever been in a WTA locker room? Do you have any experience whatsoever on the WTA Tour? And more importantly were you in that locker room or do you know someone who was?? Yeah I didn't think so.

And MatchpointPRT you are a racist so why don't you just come out w/ it and be honest to yourself...you'll be a better person for it.

Why they would be playing with who? with Serena? Because they can´t ask to put Serena out of the tournament as they can´t to other player... :lol:

the second part, i wasn´t in locker room and i can´t be sure if something happened or not, but one thing i´m sure, Serena is the only one saying that the other players laugh because of her losses which is really strange, because she´s not the only good player on the wta tour. It would be fun to read Federer saying that the other players were laughing about his losses, it´s just something that you´ll never see, not from him and not from any other normal person...

Third, you was asking me how could i know what happened in the locker room if i probably never had a wta tour experience and know i ask you, how can you call me racist if you know nothing about me? :rolleyes:

Matchpointprt isn´t racist, in fact i even appreciate them a lot...:lol:

So the players hate her too..not surprisingly
The other players are jealous and envious of her success. If Serena was ranked #459 in the world and had never won a title they would care less if Serena had won or loss. But Serena probably has more titles than all those other players in that locker room combined. But don't feel bad Serena, people hated Jesus Christ too.

This is not true, i have heard commentators say that there is always some excitement anytime there is a possibilty of an upset, suddenly players in the locker rooms all pay attention, the same would have been happenng toowars the end of federer's match against stepanek, people usually gather round to see how to beat a champ, the same commotion would have been there with justine's loss, sveta and i guess jelena's. serena would defnitely have walked in on that commotion, she is the one who knows what locker rooms are like and she would ahve known that particular excitement was because of the STUNNING LOSS!!!
look at the crowd at the tennis court, they alwasy have the same reaction on the verge of every upset, even the camera men show that.

How is it "irrelevent"? Mary Jo has not said the players were all having a big party after the Serena lose today. Only Serena has so you offer a false set of choices. The Slavic players usually do not talk among themselves in English. Irregardless, Williams has some drama going but talk is cheap and she hasn`t won a major since Jan. of `07. Let us see what happens as to results over the next few months as that is all that matters anyway. Not so good today. That`s the bottom line. Trash talk? Okay, but yawns...;)

I was speaking of all the countless times I've heard Mary Jo and many commentators talk about the mood in the locker room when ANY TOP player loses. It's a certain buzz she refers too and it's been said many times during matches.

Serena has been winning lately, whether she falters on her promises is her own problem to deal with. What I don't understand is why does it bother people so much? She said they were celebrating her loss and I don't fault them for wanting to see a dominant and imposing champion like her lose. I mean most of them probably hate to play her.:lol:

And no, the world doesn't revolve around you and I'm pretty sure no one is happy you lost.... they were probably celebrating Safina's win. Last time I checked, you are not #1, #2 or #3, you're not defending champion, and you aren't holding any slams.

"... display of unforced errors..."

Does anyone think that Serena understands that the reason for her "playing like garbage" in a "display of unforced errors" today was due entirely to Dinara? Today, Dinara did not let Serena "play her game" or "her best".

It happens. That's why the matches are actually played! Dinara brought more game, today, than Serena did.

Serena can pout all she wants. She seems to extract motivation from it. Whatever, no one has accused Serena of being a class act.

Sure, the chance to play a lessor player is always good news, though excelling on the Euro red clay as compared to backyard Miami are two different things and today`s result is not the best start. It is equally plausible that the lockeroom celebration story is as much a launching pad for some drama.

I just think that rather than criticising someone's spelling of a word, it would be more productive for someone to spend five minutes of their time finding out what the word is actually all about. Then perhaps their snobby, high ground position might be partially jusitifed.

Speaking of when she won it in 2002, I thought it was very nice of her to say a few words in French in thanks to the crowd. Considering she can't even actually speak French; a lot of players don't make the effort to embrace the native language.

Please stop with the language barrier excuse because anybody can still celebrate a victory over a top player in their own native language. You have no idea who was in the locker room after the match so you're wrong again. :tape: I used the example of the commentators because they often speak about this repeatedly which makes it relevant to the discussion. I believe their is reason for celebration amongst the other players when a top player goes down. It a natural human instinct to be competitive.



I really haven`t noticed anyone "bothered," just laughing at her is all. Kinda goes with the message board territory... :lol:


You can look through this entire thread and see people "bothered" including you. But that's what happens when Serena loses, she must always say the right thing or non-fans lose their damn minds.:tape::lol:



Sure, the chance to play a lessor player is always good news, though excelling on the Euro red clay as compared to backyard Miami are two different things and today`s result is not the best start. It is equally plausible that the lockeroom celebration story is as much a launching pad for some drama. She is bleeding and so are many of her fans, and it gives an opportinity for chest beating and trash talk. :lol:


Oh please, what drama is Serena trying to create? And her fans aren't bleeding because we know that one loss means nothing. She can pick up and move on to the next tournament. Her chances are still good at Roland Garros considering shes had preparation and even if she doesn't win things are looking up. Her form is coming together so nothing you or the haters say will change that fact. :)

It's always so easy to charge someone with being a "victim" of racism if you have never experienced it yourself. Venus and Serena should be lauded for excelling in spite of all of the racism they have surely encountered in tennis and in life generally. It must stick in your craw that they do so well.

Serena is virtually unbeatable when she is at her best. Stop being a "victim" of pure, unadulterated folly and jealousy, and accept it.

Horrible blog by Serena and that's IF she wrote it.

She comes off as self-centered and delusional.

No, Serena, you didn't play that poorly today even if you could have played better.

And no, the world doesn't revolve around you and I'm pretty sure no one is happy you lost.... they were probably celebrating Safina's win. Last time I checked, you are not #1, #2 or #3, you're not defending champion, and you aren't holding any slams.

Bravo! Bravo!! I applaud you for finally coming out the closet.:haha::haha: The passive aggressive approach you had in regards to Serena never was believable. You don't have to put up a front and act like you respect Serena just because you worship Venus. I hope you feel better.

Please stop with the language barrier excuse because anybody can still celebrate a victory over a top player in their own native language. You have no idea who was in the locker room after the match so you're wrong again. :tape: I used the example of the commentators because they often speak about this repeatedly which makes it relevant to the discussion. I believe their is reason for celebration amongst the other players when a top player goes down. It a natural human instinct to be competitive.

Well duh, you also have no idea what was said so that takes up back to the beginning. Nor does Serena if they were speaking a foreign language so your pseudo confidence is further stifled. And your mention of Mary Jo and some "buzz" does nothing to support any notion of some big celebration as a defeated player leaves the court. You had no answer to those points of course. :)

Your attempt to coral them in your corner or play Dr. Phil doesn`t work.

Not at all. I just think it is funny and really telegraphs has much failing to close out that match got to her. The trash talk kinda reminds me of a boxing promo or WCW. That stuff is funny also. But actually, if creating a delusion or exaggerating helps her get motivated for the next tournament, have at it. She should not be censored but at the same time all are free to question the literalness or merits of her statements.


I guess you just don't want to believe those innocent girls in the locker room were celebrating Serena's loss.

That may have been. I don`t know. Perhaps they all hate her guts so much that they have a big party greeting her after every lose, though she has never said this before that I know of. But the point is, you don`t know exactly what happened either, and several reasons have been provided to suspect that the story is at least exaggerated. :)

But the commentators have always discussed the mood in the locker room after a top player(who's favored to win) has lost. They've even talked about the uproar in the locker room once a big favorite goes down. Your attempt to discount that fact when they're directly in contact with the players doesn't work. I haven't professed to know what goes on in the locker room. I've stated that I believe this account because the behavior isn't uncommon based on what I hear from commentators.

BTW, the blog entry isn't fabricated, it's on Serena's Official Site.;)

She admitted playing a bad match and considering how Serena considers herself a perfectionist that's understandable. I find it odd that Serena complimented Dinara on playing great and it was overlooked. Serena has always been bold and confident, it's just a part of her personality. It wasn't trash talk on the level of the WCW, just a little message to the tour. I think it makes for interesting conversation and gets the competitive juices flowing. But if her talking about what happened in the locker room bothers you, then so be it.;)

I don't think anyone's guts are hated on the tour. You obviously have some players who don't like or are jealous of others(namely the top girls). Tennis is a very competitive sport and I don't hold it against someone if they're a bit jealous of another player. In the long run, being this way isn't going to help you out.

And while I don't know what happened either, you haven't given any concrete proof to counter Serena's blog entry. You've only analyzed the situation by claiming Serena is being dramatic and using language barrier as an excuse which makes no sense. In comparison, I've discussed people who are in close contact with the daily happenings of the tour. But you have shunned that theory because you claim it's irrelevant to the situation. No, I can't exactly know how what happened, but my evidence is more sound that yours.:lol:

I've frequented the scoring thread many times and Serena fans are passionate but so are other fans following their favorites.

"Foreboding?" You gotta be joking...I never realized Serena's words carry that much import. Not. Foreboding is when Bush says he might bomb Iran or when oil prices hit $124 a barrel, not when a female tennis player threatens revenge against some players she "thinks" are cheering her loss at an inconsequential clay-court tournament :rolleyes:.

As for Serena unleashing herself, um, if I were her I'd think twice about it. Her upper rack already "unleashes" itself all over the place everytime she runs for a ball.

:lol: This fish gets bigger and bigger every time you talk about it. I`ve never heard a commentator talk about any sort of "uproar" of celebration directed at a loser coming off the court. "Big buzz" is all I`ve heard. Upsets are news, eg. "the buzz," or passing the news along, but even then there wasn`t but a handful of players in town to even buzz. It`s really funny watching you trying to reshape the commentators to fit your literal rendering of Serena`s cutesy blog comments. Not to mention that your continual use of words like "always" and "endless" times betrays your eagerness to jam a round peg in a square hole.

And while I don't know what happened either, you haven't given any concrete proof to counter Serena's blog entry. You've only analyzed the situation by claiming Serena is being dramatic and using language barrier as an excuse which makes no sense.

What you out of hand try and dismiss as an "excuse" represents a basis for misunderstanding or even understanding nothing at all. Assuming she heard anything at all, in a foreign tongue, the context and intent of an overheard conversation could easily be misunderstood. Seeming joy could have been more about Dinara. Only a self-absorbed person would think it`s all about her, but it`s hubris and should be recognized as such on her blog. The weakest point to date is your claim that everyone must have been ganging up and picking on her because "I heard many many commentators endless times say they do that all the time. And these people are in the know!" Prove it. I`ve never heard anything like that on a broadcast, even from Carillo or Gimelstob which in fact would be worth very little. Your testimony reeks of someone expelling air out their backside and really is no “evidence” at all. :lol:

This would make sense if she were at the top. Reality is she hasn't been #1 in 5 years and she's in danger of losing the status "best of her generation" depending on what Venus and Henin do in the coming months/years.

I think sometimes Serena doesn't necessarily believe that herself or is at least insecure in her belief. I feel like she's got kid sisters syndrome...constantly trying to prove something to the world even then though she's done it over and over again.

You're really being ridiculous. You should know by now that RANKINGS NEVER MATTERED to Serena Williams. She can be out of the top 100 and still a threat to win slams. The players know this, and that's why when she loses they are happy regardless where she's ranked. There's nothing wrong with them celebrating her loss. It's human nature. Justine is the one to beat on Clay, so I'm sure the players were just as happy as to see her lose.

On the men's side, don't you think the players were happy to see Nanal and Federer lost? As some posters already stated, the commentators for both ATP and WTA tours had said in the past that when a top player is about to lose, it's a big deal in the locker rooms. They want to see how the underdog is doing it. So they take notes and hope that they, too, have a chance next time they face that heavy favorite.

Serena has been on tour long enough to know those players and what goes on in the women's locker room. Most of the critics bashing her are just afraid that she's more than capable of humiliating those who were laughing after her loss. And that's probably why the haters have such a big problem with what she said.

How do you know that? That's just a wild assumption. Please make a post where you actually make a valid point for a change.

FYI this blog was posted like 6 hours after she lost, so it was hardly going to be proof-read and censored in that time. I'm not sure why it was posted here because it was clearly for her fans, and obviously those over-critical, judgemental, obssessive types were always going to pick it apart.

I love that so many people who have zero respect for this uneducated, self obssessed, arrogant individual have made multiple posts in a thread about a 150 word blog it probably took her like 200 seconds to write. No wonder she has such a big ego, when she attracts more attention wiping her arse than most of you would if you achieved your entire life's work in one day.

If this were the first time, I'd have no problem, but statements like these pop up over and over and over again. And sad how fans see nothing wrong with it, but everyone has a right to feel and think what they want. To me(and to most objective fans IMO), she comes off as self-centered, insecure, and disrespectful.

Does that not include Serena? Hmmm, thought so. When she says what she thinks and feels, she get's lambasted as stupid, self-centred and disrespectful.

There is such a thing as intended audience you know. We all say and do things in private, or to closer friends, that I'm sure, if were revealed in public, would be derided and chastised.

She's entitled to say and think what she wants and if she wants to share those feelings with a certain group of people, then so be it. Some of the attacks her words have endured on this thread, personal, uncalled for, moronic, they merit defence.

And as a former world number one herself, Williams says Henin can more than cope with the pressure of being the best player on tour.

"I was surprised she lost, but she is a good winner and people have a lot of expectations on her," said Williams.

"She will play a lot better than that, she knows she can, and with that in mind, she will take a lot of solace from that fact.

"This is just one tournament, I know a lot of players who lose a lot more than four games in four months, besides things can turn round very quickly."

Why hasn't anyone commented on this?

Serena is so disrespectful. :lol:

I mean it's better she lost earlier so she can stop and find out what's wrong.

In my opinion she played like shit in the Family Circle Cup final but she didn't mind because she won there.

But now she played badly and didn't win and I think everything will be perfect for Serena. She'll train more.

Those players, those bitches, that were laughing will get there ass whooped when they face Serena. I really hope Serena knows who were talking shit about her so she can put her foot in their ass.

I wouldn't be surprised if Serena had a special "hitlist" made out :lol:

No. That would be Hingis, the dopehead. I agree with serena~lover 100%. Seems like everyone on this board can have an opinion on things, situations, and players, except Serena, who has damn well earned the right to say what she damn well pleases about her game, losses, opponents, or expectations. Just look at all the stupid opinons going around here.:tape: That's why I strongly feel some things belong strictly in players forums.

Yes, it has an intended audience, but nonetheless, you have to be at least somewhat careful with what you say if you are a public figure writing a public blog and if she wasn't careful it's really revealing about her character.

Well to call someone self-obssessed based on a few 150 word fragments you've read is imo foolish. You don't know Serena, you don't know what she's like to be around, how much time she devotes to her friends and family. So for you to call her self-obssessed based on a short blog is imo wrong, as are many of the criticisms of Serena as a person , based merely her words. There is a difference. People judge far too easily. People are free to criticse if they wish. However I find the ease with which some people to judge others quite worrying.

You perceive fans as being defensive, odd, have you actually read half of the thread and what some people have said? If someone is being personally attacked and they cannot defend themselves, I feel defense is the least of measures.

:lol: This fish gets bigger and bigger every time you talk about it. I`ve never heard a commentator talk about any sort of "uproar" of celebration directed at a loser coming off the court. "Big buzz" is all I`ve heard. Upsets are news, eg. "the buzz," or passing the news along, but even then there wasn`t but a handful of players in town to even buzz. It`s really funny watching you trying to reshape the commentators to fit your literal rendering of Serena`s cutesy blog comments. Not to mention that your continual use of words like "always" and "endless" times betrays your eagerness to jam a round peg in a square hole. Of course you've never heard the commentators I mentioned talk about the "uproar" in the locker room. I referenced American commentators Pam and Mary Jo who have indeed made these remarks at times. And buzz is just a keyword both these commentators use when an upset is about to take place which is often followed by "in the locker room". Your attempt to play on words is rather disturbing but if that helps you sleep at night then so be it. I find that you like to argue in circles which is rather nauseating.:tape:

What you out of hand try and dismiss as an "excuse" represents a basis for misunderstanding or even understanding nothing at all. Assuming she heard anything at all, in a foreign tongue, the context and intent of an overheard conversation could easily be misunderstood. Seeming joy could have been more about Dinara. Only a self-absorbed person would think it`s all about her, but it`s hubris and should be recognized as such on her blog.In every scenario there is always the possibility of misinterpretation of intention . Using keys words like "assuming", "could easily", "could have been" is not only presumptuous but makes your argument baseless. I have openly stated that I haven't any knowledge of went on in the locker room(neither do you). However, I would believe the accounts of players and to some degree the talk amongst commentators instead of someone without any inside knowledge. Your skewed and biased psychoanalysis of what "could have" happened that day is downright hilarious.:lol:



The weakest point to date is your claim that everyone must have been ganging up and picking on her because "I heard many many commentators endless times say they do that all the time. And these people are in the know!" Prove it. I`ve never heard anything like that on a broadcast, even from Carillo or Gimelstob which in fact would be worth very little. Your testimony reeks of someone expelling air out their backside and really is no “evidence” at all. :lol:I never stated everyone were "ganging up" on Serena. You see this is the misconception you have about my statements. I believe that top players on both the ATP and WTA have well wishers on tour and players who are jealous and would like to see them lose. In my opinion, that's the competitive nature of sport in general. So when any favorite loses a big match their is a cause for celebration amongst some players. I never said that the commentators have stated those in the locker room were "ganging up" on Serena either because I don't believe she's exclusive on receiving that type of response. Again, WORD PLAY.:lol::help:

Nice speech there homes, but I`m afraid you seem a bit "bothered"... :lol: None of the proof I asked for I see, just wholly unsubstantiated testimony of what you allege to have heard on TV, so now we are down to just ideas to file in the opinion drawer. How you feel a certain few tour players would behave publicly after the match doesn`t constitute “evidence,” and the commentators have said nothing to buttress any view of some big celebration directed at Williams just after she entered the player area. You provide no evidence even one, much less “ many” commentators have said or implied this happens at all, much less “all the time.” Others are of the opinion that there might have been a few girls around the locker room happy for Dinara. I mean what a great week for a very congenial, popular player who has long threatened the top while struggling for years to keep in form. Berlin is now her best tournament ever. Great job Dinara. What a story. But huh, this could be about joy for Dinara rather than Serena? No, that can`t be!;) Not to mention that high fives to the victor are plenty sporting and standard fare. That “opinion” works at least as good as yours. You have no “evidence” except Serena`s blog but that`s weak seeing that she talks cutesy, diva, or “outrageous” often and perhaps would join me in amusement at you for taking her so literally. Your central point has been obliterated, simple as that. But carry on with the opinions and “flaming” with the “haters.” You can thank the one who created the thread here rather than the fan forum for that. :lol:

But what has this to do why unsporting behaviour and players showing a clear lack of class and no respect for their fellow professionals? How many times to you see players go up to the net and congratulate their opponent, very few times this happens. It’s a dodgy handshake at best, then they stomp off back to the locker room, most times ignoring the fans who waited patiently for hours, days, weeks, months, to see their “supposed” sporting idols. I know not all players are like this, the select few are overshadowed by the selfish majority. And I don’t mean that just from my own perspective, many others who attend tennis tournaments concur with my opinion. And it’s not just tennis, it’s other sports too.

what is a "totally unprofessional manner?" please define.

to me, throwing or smashing a racket is not a problem. physically fighting your opponent is.


I never said this blog was problematic, if you scroll back you will see, I don’t believe Serena wrote this.

for starters, i think serena writes all of her blog entries. if she does not write them, she approves of whatever is posted. which means she agrees with it.


Again, I don’t have a problem with a player being competitive. I think you are all having a problem separating passion from respect and sporting etiquette.

perhaps you don't understand that "respect" and "sporting etiquette" are/can be subjective things that change with the times. you want people to walk around with shit stuck of their asses. for some people expressing ebulliency (as venus did at wimbledon a few years ago) is lacking in etiquette. for some people yelling come on or fist pumping, etc. are disrespectful and lacking in "sporting etiquette."

your idea of sporting etiquette and respect are passe. women no longer play in floor length skirts and men don't play in long pants. we no longer use wooden rackets. and people (males and females) grunt when they hit the ball.

I don’t need your permission, nor do I need to defend myself to you on why I post.

Exactly...

Serena is Serena love it or hate it.

She is a warrior, and all you bytches, and all them bytches on the tour know it too.

This board is a prime example, Serena this Serena that, I know she just laps it up. Now I know how she could win in the face of all the hate she received at IW. There's no such thing as negative attention :worship:

Continue to feast off their hate baby girl.:cool:

Serena Looks Ahead



Well Guys I Lost Today,

I played like garbage! It was a horrible display of unforced errors and simply girl gone MAD!!! (I was the girl gone mad)

Anyways my opponent did play her heart out, in a way I am glad I lost to her instead of in Rolland Garros. I really want to do good there, and this has been a wake up call for me. I can’t play bad and expect to do well; tomorrow I will be hitting the practice courts and training until my legs go out. I am not a fan of losing, so I have to find a way to stop this from happening.

It was funny when I lost I was in the locker room and I could hear the entire players lounge really loud like really happy and joyous. Like down goes the champ! Someone beat her!!! It was like a big hoopla.... I just smiled to myself thinking you just wait... just wait......

Serena

get em' Serena :armed::armed:

Why isn't this locked? Love the double standard some of the mods have around here. And for the record I haven't read one post in this thread besides the original.

Serena has had this attitude instilled into her. In fact, this is the attitude that makes Serena Williams who she is; and that's the most confident player on the tour. Hell, if this attitude makes you into a player who has eight slams[four in a row], won three titles this year, and into a player that is so confident that it makes her mentally the strongest [coming back from match point down countless of times], then I'd take it anyday.

Maybe other players should adopt this attitude, instead of being owned by Serena and her fans.

I think the difference between the players is sharpened by the contrast between players like Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova. Some, like the former are bent on beating the player opposite, others, like the latter are concentrating on winning the match. I'd also put Venus in the latter group, but maybe not as much as Sharapova.

Actually you are totally wrong..you are saying

serena= concentrates on beating the player opposite
maria= concentrates on winning the match

LOL

a small example is enough to prove you wrong-

you ever seen how they both serve? serena doesnt care where her opponent is standing or doesnt even look at the opponent while serving..she just goes along her business..what does that show you? she doesnt care whom she is playing...all she wants is to win the match..not beating the player

now look at pova...you ever seen how she serves..she checks atleast 2 times where her opponent is standing..what does that show you? she cares about whom she is playing against and what they are doing..conclusively..she cares more about beating the opponent

And as a former world number one herself, Williams says Henin can more than cope with the pressure of being the best player on tour.

"I was surprised she lost, but she is a good winner and people have a lot of expectations on her," said Williams.

"She will play a lot better than that, she knows she can, and with that in mind, she will take a lot of solace from that fact.

"This is just one tournament, I know a lot of players who lose a lot more than four games in four months, besides things can turn round very quickly."

Why hasn't anyone commented on this?

Serena is so disrespectful. :lol:

because she's complimenting someone lol...every hater ignores it lol
