No matter what anyone says on this site, I still love Serena as a tennis player, champion, and and representative for the sport.

She lost control of her temper, understood the rules and took the point penalty on match point and moved on.

GO SERENA!





PS - Congratulations to Kim for playing awesome tennis and putting so much pressure on Serena! I'm glad she's back and hope she wins tomorrow!

I'm still in shock! I never expected her to react in such a way. But looking back now, it did just seem to be spur of the moment - we've all said something we didn't mean in a tense situation, the difference being it wasn't being broadcast to the entire world. No doubt Serena will apologise in the press and will just move on. She's bound to get a lot of stick for this, maybe even for the rest of her career, but she can handle it. And despite being completely outplayed today, I still have no doubts that Serena Williams is the best female tennis player in the world.

Wow Serena,

I don't want to go through what happened. I love you so much, I believe in you. I know you wouldn't for God's sakes say that. I'm so much in shock right now and I hope to be right on that one. I think you're incredible, amazing, outstanding and one of the best person the Earth as known. I hope from my heart (even my life) this is nowhere near the end for you. I feel like I lost that drive that gave me the power to go through everyday, I can't imagine how hard that must be for you. If there is one thing I could tell you, is:

- ''Champions fear nothing. Relax, Focus! U don,t have to be Perfect. Just be strong and brave. Keep it Up! Come On! Prove them wrong!'' - Serena Williams

''Keep it On The Line'' - Marc-André Gauthier

''A Champion! A Woman!
Playing for these moments
Is a tall and beautiful Person.
A Sportsperson, a Winner.
That Love is never Gone.'' - Marc-André Gauthier

Love You Meeka.

Marc


That is what I wrote to her :angel:

Thanks for this post. Indeed, she did lose temper and even felt bad towards Kim for ending the match the way it did. Both players respect each other too much to have to end this way. Kim was pissed, and Serena obvi too (both for losing the match and felt bad towards Kim too, at least that's how I saw her going over to Kim and all that jazz). Shame. Real shame. Kim better beats that Wozniacki tomorrow though, she made exactly 8 winners today. Eh.

Things happen for a reason and yes Serena should have kept her cool but I can emphasize with her. Under that tense situation and critical points involved, I understand why she lost her cool. She said some things she should not have said but I still love her and her game. I personally think from the very begining of the match Serena was tense and very passive. I also thought she played horrible, too many unforced errors. This is the worse she has played for the tournament and in a long while. It reminded me of how she played in the early rounds at the AO.

I think Serena will get through this and rebound. She'll win her 12th grandslam next year and come with a better strategy for Kim. Congratulations to Kim for playing well and keeping her cool but I must say Serena did not play at the level she played Pennetta. She was extremely passive and tense in this match against Kim.

I was mad at her for a little while, but now I've calmed down and realized it was a mistake. Everyone loses their temper at some point at the wrong time. The ultimate thing for Serena to do would be to apolgize to the line judge.

Love Serena always, flaws and all. She's held her cool in times when I felt she should have WENT THE HELL OFF, like in 04 at the USO, but she's fed up. It all got to her and she was frustrated with her game and with the bad call. It happens. Upwards and onwards. Shame though, cause I really felt a comeback...don't know how but it was still possible!

And love Kim too! She deserved to win, but if it was to be, it shouldn't have been like that.

Who DOESN'T get caught up in the heat of a moment? We all do and we all make mistakes, and Serena, humbly paid the price. She shook Clijsters hand and wished her luck and walked off the court waving to the crowd.

Serena made a mistake, she lost her temper, but I think anyone would. Foot fault to give your opponent 2 MPs. It's hard to stomach.

I agree. She was probably mostly angry at herself I bet.
Both of those players respect each other a lot, I doubt there will be hard feelings left now.

I encourage everyone to just go with it. Look at how nice she was with Kim. And she loves her baby daughter she says. How can anyone be mad at Serena for blowing a gasket? Name a time when this has happened before where she goes off like this on a lines person? Isn't she allowed one reprieve!?! Geez.

She's lucky not to be lifted by the NYPD.

It makes sense to still love serena as a fan despite this... but to like her even more after her display is just stupid.

Anyway, I think that while Serena is in the wrong, she did show class by wishing Clijsters well.

Everything happens for a reason and this incident is no coincidence if you're thinking "big picture". Escpecially in Serena's case who is very much into spirituality and try to be a better human being every day. Serena has often had to learn the hard way all through her life and yesterday's incident is no different. This is her karma, which is the karma of people with a high level of consciousness.
I watched her post-match interview and I thought that it was a very "human" moment, sad, beautiful, emotional moment at the same time. I never saw Serena so humble and wise after a defeat. If you read between the lines Serena clearly admits she went nuts (even if it was spur of the moment) and it was her fault. It's just a tennis match here. I'm sure that the whole thing will be a good learning experience for the future for as a human being. Serena is a great human being and I'm sure the sad incident will make her stronger.

Yasmine
Sep 13th, 2009, 11:55 AM

I'm just watching her press conference and she does admit she was wrong and quickly accepted it was a penalty point at a bad time. And indeed she just wants to move on, which is great. :yeah:

Uh i think most of the "i've lost complete respect for Serena!!!" types never respected her to begin with so...

Anyway my opinion on her hasn't changed. She made a mistake, overreacted, and was duly punished for it. A shame, but a reality and I'm over it.
But what suprises me is how people act like this is the first time in the history of tennis a person has ever gone off on a linesperson. Perhaps these people complaining about Serena get highly offended each time it happens with other players too? I don't know. Personally, having watched tennis regularly for about 2yrs now, i've seen quite a few overreactions of players especially about footfaults. It's usually funny/entertaining sometimes shocking, annoying if the person does it all the time (like roddick and gonzalez)... But usually i forget about it moments after.
So i'm not very trusting of the motives of certain people milking this controversy whilst claiming outrage.

i really don't know. I haven counted. Plus often they speak another language but it's hard to guage.

I don't think what she did was right. I would (and i'm sure she would) have preferred to retain her composure. But that's life. We're not always perfect and there's no point constantly berating her for it. She got her match point docked from her for goodness sake! What more do people want?

It seems some want her punished even further. Perhaps they would like to see her humiliated in some other way and their true colours are being shown.

The replay showed that either it wasn't a footfault at all or it was marginal at best. Calling it before a match point in a semi-final match?!! :mad: Give me a break! Anyone would be pissed off!

Sure, she could have not said the foul words but she
is surely not the first and will not be the last.

I'm glad she is holding her ground. She was angry but I believe Serena. If anyone seriously believes she said "I'll kill you" they are seriously disturbed and want to believe it. Lord knows serena has grated on my nerves with her behavior before but I'm with her on this one.
