“I made her run,” Wozniacki said.

“Everyone I play always plays the match of the year,” Williams said.

“I probably played about 20 percent,” Williams said. “I just made a tremendous amount of errors. There’s no reason for that. I’m older and I shouldn’t do that. There’s no excuse. I’ve just got to stop that. It’s silly.”

Did we really expect anything else to come out of Serena's mouth?
Classless, forever and always.
You were outplayed baby girl, and don't blame the errors - you always have huge unforced error counts, but they're usually countered by winners which you just didn't have because your opponent didn't give you the chance to make them.

Older now - time to grow up.

I guess after losing to Stosur at USO, Makarova at AO and now Caro at Miami she might actually rethink about how she's playing and hit the gym.

Serena shouldn't say things like that, it is disrespectful to her opponent. She certainly did not play her best match while Caro played one of her better matches, but again it is part of the sport. You have to bring the best game when it is needed. How well one plays also depends on the opponent. Caro clearly exposed Serena's poor movement, that effects confidence and as a result effects things that people are usually good at (serve?).

She said herself "I’m older and I shouldn’t do that. There’s no excuse. I’ve just got to stop that. It’s silly." This applies to making statements like this one.

Davenport said it all night... "She's got to make Wozniacki beat her from the forehand side."

Why Serena went to Caro's backhand all match was mindboggling. Just stupid, arrogant strategy. So if there was 20%, it was Serena using only 20% of her brain. :lol:

This.

“I just made a tremendous amount of errors. There’s no reason for that. I’m older and I shouldn’t do that. There’s no excuse. I’ve just got to stop that. It’s silly.”

And this. Did she lie? Did she not play well below standard? Did Wozniacki not play what will probably be one of her best 3 matches of the year?

Agree completely. I want to like Serena, but she makes it hard by saying things like this. She behaves like a child most of the time: one minute she's surly and petulant, next she's silly and giggly, then she's a self-righteous chest-beater, then she's throwing a tantrum, and so on. The consistent line in everything she says or does is that it's all about me-me-me. She needs to grow up, seriously.

Woz did not make her run! Woz made her power waddle.

But give credit where it's due: Serenka dug deep and found limitless energy to run her mouth at the pressor!

She also gave credit to Woz and said that Woz served the best she's ever served.
And it's reassuring to me that she says this. She at least knows she can play better (and last night she could have played A LOT better. Like really Rena, let's pass everything to Woz's one aggressive shot.)

This is what Serena said in a post match conference:

“I probably played about 20 percent,” Williams said. “I just made a tremendous amount of errors. There’s no reason for that. I’m older and I shouldn’t do that. There’s no excuse. I’ve just got to stop that. It’s silly.”

I guess we'll see you in the ATP Top 10 next week ! What a way to diminish and belittle Caro on a well played match. Disgusting !!!

What was Serena's percentage against Makarova? She's turning into Special Needs Serena with these exam results! :lol:

I suppose she needs to believe that this is 20% because otherwise, she may as well give up, because Serena la Diva will not cope with being a bit part-player on the tour, who only gets show courts when she is facing a top seed. But to play so badly in her two best events, first the Australian and now Miami, one wonders where she can bring out the 100% or even above 50%, or is it just that this is her usual standard now, that she is looking on her past glories like they are current reality like the deluded Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard:

"I am still big but it's the courts that got small" :help:

Yes, and each one comes with a very specific probability distribution. Wozniacki's would be rectangular: always 100%. Kuznetsova's is a decaying exponential one: maximal at 0% and rapidly declines to zero for 100%. KvittyGOAT is bimodal: either 80% or 0.05%, with nothing in between. Then we can put in models to predict the matches.

There is a line in the Faulkner novel Sound & the Fury which describes the retarded man-child Benjy, which is equally applicable to Serena and her ego problem:

"He been three for thirty years."

She really does need to grow up and stop the excuse making when she gets whupped. Other players can accept it when they get outplayed--take it as a challenge to improve themselves and make themselves better. Why is she not able to do it?

Mrs. Peel
Mar 28th, 2012, 03:43 PM

Kuznetsova's is a decaying exponential one: maximal at 0% and rapidly declines to zero for 100%. KvittyGOAT is bimodal: either 80% or 0.05%, with nothing in between. Then we can put in models to predict the matches.

:lol: yes. And Serena's would probably be rectangular as well, she rarely plays better than 20% after all.

Can you imagine how much better TF would be if we could say "75% Wozniacki routs 95% Sharapova 6-0, 6-2"? All arguments would be facts, not blind foaming-at-the-mouth deluded fanboy(girl)ism

eg. of potential fact: 65% Pierce loses at most 3 games to 100% anyone.

Agree completely. I want to like Serena, but she makes it hard by saying things like this. She behaves like a child most of the time: one minute she's surly and petulant, next she's silly and giggly, then she's a self-righteous chest-beater, then she's throwing a tantrum, and so on. The consistent line in everything she says or does is that it's all about me-me-me. She needs to grow up, seriously.

She won't change and she doesn't have to. She's got a fiery, and often uneven temperament and suffers from depression--this is who she is. This is a very emotional, 13 time slam winning, best of her generation legend. It's silly to expect her to change as a tennis player. Maybe in later years in her every day life she may have an ephiphany of sorts....regardless, her fans lover her, as do I.

The Serena of five-six years ago (heck, probably even the Serena of 2010) could take long breaks and still dominate the tour. Even she has to realize that she can't do that anymore. Age is the great equalizer.

I want her back and/or near the top but I just have to accept that if she plays like this it won't be the case. Having said all that, betting against Serena is usually a losing proposition. If losing to Wozniacki doesn't wake her up, then nothing will.

Serena is Serena. If every player sugarcoated how they really felt, it would be boring. I've accepted the way Serena is, win or lose. Serena knows she is a better player than most of her opponents. She expects a lot from herself. I'm just sick of all the bashing of her character. But I know it won't stop. Hate or love Serena, but she is who she is. If you don't like her, don't watch her.

Well, it is not the first time Serena has come out mentally vacant and too casual to a match. She does know better and she should be ashamed of herself. Another title lost for coming out unprepared. Serves her right.

This. She cannot keep relying on scraping through her "20% of play", she only has herself to blame for losing those matches because Wozniacki, Zvonareva, Makarova etc are names that a focused and determined Serena would have beaten fairly easily.

I also kind of think she was burned out after her Summer run last year. She was clearly expected to win the US Open, then she was beaten by Stosur. Serena did not play the rest of the year and barely wanted to play earlier this year. For someone who worked so hard to get fit and played so well, to fall out of "love" with tennis now seems weird. Something has to light that fire in Serena again. I don't know what it will take. I really hope Venus does well this year. Maybe that will inspire Serena.

Q. She said she was only playing 20% of her game. Do you feel that?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: You know, I I don't really to be honest, I just play. You know, I play against an opponent, and as long as I win, I really don't mind, you know, what's happening on the other side.

Anyway Serena can say whatever she wants, Caro won that's all that matters!

Not a full excuse since a lot of athletes have been able to maintain their mental edges without being publicly ungracious, but apparently this is what works for Serena. :shrug: It must be how she motivates herself.

You don't have to care, and neither does Serena. But tbh I find it hard to believe that Serena doesn't care. I think she suffers from the hostility that is directed towards her, but doesn't realize that a lot of that hostility can be avoided just by showing a little more empathy for her opponents.

So what if she's the best female tennis player of her generation? She's no more dominant in women's tennis than Federer was in his prime in men's tennis. Fed is no modest angel for sure, he has always been just as aware of his own class as Serena is, but that never stopped him from taking a genuine interest in his opponents, commenting after matches on what they did well or maybe not so well, and even for the lower ranked guys he often has kind and encouraging words. With Serena it's always about Serena, good or bad, never about her opponent. That gets up people's noses and leads to a lot of unnecessary hostility that I think hurts her deep down, even if she doesn't want to show it.

It is what it is. I think she has long since "realized" that some people hate her and some people love her and could care less about "getting up people's noses". Her cocky attitude, love it or hate it, is part of what has made her the champion that she is. As a fan, I know that she has many faults, but for me the attributes outweigh the faults.

All I really wanted to say, and this is really the last time I will comment on this, is that what she sees as people hating her is in a lot of cases really no more than (avoidable) irritation. Of course if she really doesn't care that is of no importance, at least not to her.

I've never heard anything so ridiculous, especially considering most of her opponents fold like cheap tents at the sight of Serena.

Isn't your head deep into Hingis shitty booty hole though?

You have some darn nerve talking about Serena's attitude when you stan for whom you stan for. Hingis is only known for talking shit and sniffing coke. Have 7 damn seats.

She looks bad either way. Either she is lying with a classless excuse about "only playing 20%" or she was incredibly unprofessional by only trying 20% in the quarterfinals of a Masters 1000 event.

Did she explain why she only gave 20% --- maybe too much twerkin the night before?

I agree. Venus isn't a sore loser. Venus even smiles at the net after she loses a match MOST times, even in Grand Slams. But that Serena...smh.

Uhm, hello, Serena gave Wozniacki a smile too, plus a firm handshake.

What defines a sore loser? Is it how you greet your opponent at the net? Or is it what you say in a press conference? She is only speaking her mind and what she says is basically correct anyway.

I thought that the thread was satire, surely Serena by now - after all the flak she has taken for her supposed lack of class - would know to say better, particularly after a match against one of her best friends on Tour? But apparently, Serena really did say that. Serena must be unluckiest tennis player in the world: it's always some ailment, opponent having great day or making some lucky shots or her game being gazillion billion notches down. Damn!

Seriously, I though Serena played pretty well yesterday, she kept her cool in long rallies, defended with gusto (even if her movement is bit down from glory years), her first serve % was better than against Stosur. It was closer than scoreline suggested, IIRC they won same number of points in first set. Her downfall was her dumb strategy of engaging Caro in lengthy crosscourt rallies - it was the same trap she sometimes fell against Capriati.

It's sad that several posters in her say that they want to like Serena but that they can't. They should not want to like her in the first place. She has played great but her sportsmanship is awful and her behaviour on court towards line judges, chair umpires and other players is often atrocious. It was not long ago that she lost to Nadia Petrova and disssed her only to lose to her again and then say that Nadia played the match of her life at the same time that she was playing her worst match and still she only barely lost. She is just not a classy loser at all and that isn't going to change any time soon. She wonders why people don't praise her for being nice!!!??? She is losing her mind apparently. She might want to realize that dissing other players will only make them play her as tough as they can and might contribute to her losses!

I said I wouldn't post any more on this thread, but since this is coming from the other side I probably should clarify what I meant when I said that I want to like her. I want to like her first and foremost because she's the best player of her generation, and I want her to be a role model rather than the divisive figure she currently is. And although she often behaves badly, I don't really think she's a bad person, she's just very immature and has a huge chip on her shoulder. With age catching up with her, she is in danger of becoming increasingly bitter as losses like this become more and more frequent. Nobody close to her seems to be telling her she needs to change so she probably won't, but if she wanted to I think she could flip a switch and become an ambassador for her sport in her final years on the tour rather than a petulant excuse-maker.

“I made her run,” Wozniacki said.

“Everyone I play always plays the match of the year,” Williams said.

“I probably played about 20 percent,” Williams said. “I just made a tremendous amount of errors. There’s no reason for that. I’m older and I shouldn’t do that. There’s no excuse. I’ve just got to stop that. It’s silly.”

I agree with this. There is a naïveté and childishness about Serena. And I do think that like a lot of people who explode, she has insecurities.

As you say she isn't a bad person, in fact she probably has a good heart at heart! But I agree she needed help and would be a better player and ambassador if she had had it. I think she would have had several more slams to her name had she been more disciplined and balanced. It's a shame the GOAT of her era wasn't even greater.

But Serena's personality and the fact that she hates losing so much has made her the champion she is. You want her to be more humble and "mature", but if she had a humble personality she probably wouldn't have been the best player of her generation with 13 slams to her name.

What is being an ambassador for the sport? Only saying "I did everything I could but she was really better today" and nothing else in press conferences? Serena is a bit random and crazy and she'll say random and crazy things. And I really don't think she is bitter.

Serena Williams has to stop part time play if she expects to win any sort of big title this year. Flitting in and out of the tour at will is just not an option at age 30. She is not match tough, and she can no longer pull through bad days like this on sheer athletic ability. I am not saying she should develop a generation suck vulture-like schedule, but I will be disappointed if she doesn't play (and take seriously) at least Rome & Madrid before RG. Same applies to Kim Clijsters.

Clay is probably not a priority for Serena at this point. Her chances to ever win another RG are virtually nil, so she wont bother playing alot on clay and risking an injury. She will more likely just make a token appearance at RG, where as always she will fight like heck but will only take her to the quarters at best. It will be part of her Wimbledon warmup really. She should play a warm up for Wimbledon, and several for the U.S Open I agree.

You are right--OP was trolling, thank you for the link, I hadn't read it.

Serena does complement Woz: "you know, she did well, she moved well...she served harder..."

and says: "No. I mean, she played under the same circumstances as I did. I mean, her dress was flowing, too, I guess.
I can't‑‑ you know, I don't want to make excuses. I didn't win because I didn't play well. There's no reason.

The majority of the questions from the reporters were them asking her about HER game and how she felt, so of course she answered about herself. She can't control how her opponent played, she can only change/control how she, herself, played.

And now I must add, Suck it, haters.

“What are you always nagging at Toad for?” inquired the Badger rather peevishly. “What’s the matter with his English? It’s the same what I use myself, and if it’s good enough for me, it ought to be good enough for you!”
“I’m very sorry,” said the Rat humbly. “Only I think it ought to be ‘teach ‘em’, not ‘learn ‘em’”

So what percent do you think she was playing at? I'm sure she was just saying that she was playing horribly. If you disagree with the fact she wasn't playing well at all, you might want to reevaluate your tennis knowledge. And if you're upset that she said 20% instead of 50% or 60% or 80% then you need to stop obsessing over her every word.

Do people actually think she was playing 100% ? Sure she can be arrogant, but a lot of champions are. I much prefer that to these players who verbally fellate their opponents in press conferences no matter what happens during the match. It's boring and repetitive.

Mad? What do I have to be mad about? This back and forth we're having? :lol: Are you serious?? What are you, 7? I'm sittin' here smiling with a big plate of fish n chips preparing to watch tennis. What're you doing?

Ok, you can continue to focus on the most irrelevant parts of my posts & respond with all the rethoric you want. Out.

You'd like to believe that, wouldn't you? I'll take a 13-time slam winner with heart over a no slam winning whiny self-entitled bitch any day of the week. Have a good one!

I actually agree with you :eek:

Serena is as classless as ever. She can't take defeat well at all. What a loser :lol:

Hmmm, let's see: "she can't take defeat well". Well what in the heck do you think made her a 13 time slam champion? Certainly not, taking defeat well. In fact, it looks like she get's down right pissed off. That's what made her a winner...of 13 slams--maybe not a winner in a popularity contes, but I doubt she cares.

Oh ok so you can't be very successful and still classy and graceful in defeat... that's good to know :rolleyes:

So what percent do you think she was playing at? I'm sure she was just saying that she was playing horribly. If you disagree with the fact she wasn't playing well at all, you might want to reevaluate your tennis knowledge. And if you're upset that she said 20% instead of 50% or 60% or 80% then you need to stop obsessing over her every word.


I don't care what percentage she was playing at (the only thing that was dramatically worse was her serve BTW) it's a bitchy and unnecessary thing to say. That is the very simple point.

Roughly translated:

"I like to act privileged and think I'm so much better than everyone else because I am Serena...I am a diva and think I am a queen and couldnt fathom someone else beating me fair and square" :rolleyes:

Serena can be a sore loser, but I'd rather have a player like that than having players who say rehearsed stuff for the media while on court take fake MTO's, violate time limit between serves, get coached from the stands and retire 5 times a year.

GoDokic changed his username?! :lol: Only now I see...still same old song, though.

Who cares what Serena said. She lost anyways and the scoreline ain't gonna change. If she didn't do anything unsportsmanlike DURING the match, then it's all good to me.

I guess after losing to Stosur at USO, Makarova at AO and now Caro at Miami she might actually rethink about how she's playing and hit the gym.

Everybody is different--we are not born with all the same personalities and temperaments--she has a temper--so what--that's what motivates her.

Hate her, who cares. There are a ton of players I truly dislike, but I don't go on and on and on about how lame or boring they are and I don't dance around like some a-hole when they lose. People need to hate her if they like and then move on. So you don't like her attitude, great, good to know.

Ahem ok, does that contradict anything I've said in any way? Me thinks not. My point was that it is possible to be successful yet classy and graceful. If to you being an arrogant ass, is something admirable, then that's your thing.
