Buy fix yourself first. Actually theres hardly anyone who can beat her these days. But fix yourself before you run to trouble.
It always happens for any players who have had back-to-back-to-back weeks like Serena had.
It would happened to Maria, Vika, Aga, etc...

It also happned for Stosur after her USO triumph, this is not special treatment nor exception for Serena.
It comes with the territory

Re: Serena: "The lady in the mirror is the ultimate opponent for me"

Yeah.

When Serena loses she beats herself....

Or played 14.5% or whatever.


Arrogance.

Even if your own self beats you, you still lost.

She is not the only saying it, commentators say it as well.
They did not reach that conclusion lightly, they have actually watched Serena's matches.

It is simply a way for Serena saying she did not execute her game plan the way she should have.
And she has said similar comments even when she wins.
After the semi yesterday, she went right to the practice court because she was not happy with her execution in match result that included a bagel and in straight set win.


Besides, I have never heard Serena not accepting that she lost.

Re: Serena: "The lady in the mirror is the ultimate opponent for me"

I would be surprised if any of the top players would say differently about their own opponents. Regardless of who's on the other side of the net, it's up to you to execute your own game on your own side of the net.

Surely not playing your best is the reason for most loses though?

Not playing well doesn't give you a pass.

No I'm not mad.

Not always true.
There times you play your best, but it simply was not good enough.
And Serena has lost matches where he best that days not good enough, and she did not make this argument.

But did you read the 2nd part of my post, where Serena went from 6-3 6-0 victory directly to the practice court because she was not happy with her performance?
You need to consider all those perspective before making statements like the one you just made.
Had she lost in the semi and said she did not execute well, you would said she was arrogant.

Arrogance.

Even if your own self beats you, you still lost.

Sad to see how things are turning out for your fan base as a result of all the arrogance and boasts pre 2013 clay season. So much for counting your chickens before they harsh. Hey, there is a bright spot though......at least it is heart warming to witness your fan base hating theories get destroyed one after the other with your player dodging her competition to boot. Let's see if there will be a place to hide in Paris.

What anti-climax today is! 2wks ago, did u even imagine that ATP tennis will be what your congregation will be left with to discuss in SS in a pova "Rome 3peat thread" few minutes after Rome final? Yep, sad indeed!
