She is already at her own league. Millions would kill for the life she has had. She doesn't need to be insecure, here.
If I were her, I'd keep my head held high, and let others expose themselves when their jealousies and insecurities finally ooze out of their skins. That's what champion is supposed to do: accept you own shortcomings, but make your assets shine the brightest.
Your first paragraph could apply to Serena as well. Why get so insecure even though she has a lot as well? I mean her match today it was just weird to see her be upset just because Miniella was making an effort in that second set. She was still winning. Players aren't always going to just bend over for her and she needs to deal with that.
And as for not watching players you don't like, that's such an easy answer isn't it? I'm just baffled why people don't actually do it.
