`I committed suicide out there,'' said Williams, who lost the Wimbledon final to 17-year-old Maria Sharapova. ``My second suicide attempt of the year.''
``It was just an awful, horrendous, terrible, miserable, horrible day,'' Williams said.

There is nothing better than reading a Serena interview after a loss.

i'm not a "hater", but the reality is that she would have said something very similar not matter what the losing score was.

Yeah but there is a difference between saying you played badly or played at 20%, 9000 notches below the level or committed suicide. After all there is a player on the other side of the net.

I haven't seen an interview however Serena saying she played badly is not the same as saying Lindsay didn't play well or that there wasn't another player across the net. Lindsay did things to stop Serena from being on her game just as Serena didn't do what she needed to be competitive. Emphasis and perspective.

i doubt lindsay cares if she got any credit and is only entertained by this pathetic drivel that has become customary out of serena.
the important thing is that lindsay has had injury and motivation problems and was able to get over them. serena has been back for quite a while now and keeps coming up with this stuff.

Ah so it's just the fans who care. As it is, I haven't read Serena not give Lindsay any credit. People will emphasize what they need to and find pathetic what suits them as they need it.

Serena did give Lindsay more credit than she said she played bad. Relax, fabooo...

This is what she said: "Obviously I didnīt play the way I wanted to, but all credit goes to Lindsay. She played a great match today." and after that she said that she had a terrible day and didnīt take advantage of her opportunities.... whatīs wrong with that?! :shrug:

Wow, here I thought Serena didn't even realize there was a player on the other side of the net. Lindsay must be amused at having Serena not acknowledge her great play. :rolleyes: It's always interesting how much Serena's words mean to so many.

I think Serena just over exaggerates things. Like she shouldn't really say stuff like I played at 20% of my level, she can say I played badly or didn't play my best but comments like that are bound to be taken out of context.

It's always just easier to attack her. Serena is supposed to get down on her knees and kiss Lindsay's feet the whole day long and talk only of Lindsay's play. Any words congratulating, acknowledging the good play by Lindsay either are forgotten, don't matter, or aren't enough to satisfy.

If Lindsay ackowledges Serena's not having things work in her game, is that equal to Lindsay saying her own A-game wasn't necessary because Serena played so badly? Would Lindsay be wrong and have no confidence? I don't get what Serena is supposed to do here more than she's already done.

Serena said she was just 7 out of 10 when she ran roughshod over the field in 2002. Was that a slight to all of your favorite players that she beat, that she actually beat them playing at 70%, or was it a slight to herself?

When Serena says these things, it is out of dissatisfaction with herself and her game. She doesnt say these things to justify her losses, she says them to denigrate herself.

Why cant some of you dense fools realize this?

She gave Lindsay credit after the match during the trophy/check ceremony, but she seemed really, really, really cavalier about losing...joking with her mom? :shrug: It was obvious (to me at least) that her mind is elsewhere other than on the tennis court. :(

Obviously us "fools" do realise this, but the logic of her comment above is that her 70% is better than the 100% of other players. If she thought about it, she'd realise that sounds arrogant.

As I've said in another thread, she doesn't think about it from that point of view. She just talks in this hyperbolic way when she is unhappy with her game. It's part of her general clowning-around, whacky personality. I think we should accept this and not pick her to pieces. I don't think she is a bad person, or all that arrogant. Nor do I think she should try to change (as she could care less what we think about her anyway).

OTOH, you can't blame fans of the other players...maybe even some of the players themselves...drawing the implication. It's pretty obvious. I don't see how anyone here is being a "dense fool". There are just different attitudes to Serena's personality and the element of...um...thoughlessness in the way she talks. Some people like it, some people don't. I'm fairly relaxed about it. Sometimes I even warm to her; other times I get a li'l exasperated with her. Generally, I think it's not a big deal.

I just think sometimes players of other fans would like Serena to validate their faves, and when Serena makes a comment denigrating herself, They see it as Serena purposely saying that she is better than their favorite, and in turn they dislike her.

Although I'm sure it doesn't matter to Serena, it does matter to fans like me, who see Serena for who she is as a person, and get disheartend when they see others besmudge her as if she were a monster.

She is hardly as rude as other people's faves, who don't imply anything, and are explicit in their criticisms os Serena and her family. Amelie being one of those players at times.....http://wtaworld.com/images/smilies/tape.gif

Thanks, bandabou. And it'd be a dull board if we all responded in the same way to the players' personalities.

JustIncredible, I don't know what Momo has to do with this. FWIW, I don't agree with everything she says, and have said so before. I'm entitled to like someone whom I sometimes disagree with. OTOH, her words are also easy to take out of context. When you actually see her interviewed she mixes very thoughtful comments (she is much more reflective than Serena, whether you like that or not) with a lot of comments that show her own sly sense of humour. A transcript doesn't do them justice, anymore than it does Serena's comments justice.

Sorry but Serena did commit suicide and stunk up the court against Lindsay. Lindsay brought her A game to the match, but Serena left her game at the Catwoman premiere.

Why not quote the whole interview? She always gives her opponents credit so I don't see where the controversy is. I swear people on this board analyze every little thing that Serena says. Of course we all do at some point discuss what a comment or two that players make, but the fascination with every tiny thing Serena says is sickening.

and if she wants to keep living, i suggest she starts to find the fucking courts with her shots.

i'm still not over how incredibly awful she played.
