Ion Tiriac should respect Serena Williams, says coach Patrick Mouratoglou

Patrick Mouratoglou commented on Ion Tiriac saying tennis doesn't need the 23-time Major winner Serena Williams, who has a 90kg weight. Mouratoglou did not know about it, and he said: 'Basically she is a little bit older for a top athlete, but it doesn't matter because she - just like Roger Federer at 36 years of age - can play tennis. Ion Tiriac should respect it. And as young mother you are a little bit overweight, but it's normal. But: Serena improved a lot since her comeback in Indian Wells and Miami. She is in a much better shape now. She wanted to go out there to have the competition feeling again. It was a little bit too early for a real comeback.'

People who watch Serena think that her performances may be connected to her motivation. If she really wants it, then nothing can stop her. 'I know that people often have this impression of Serena. And naturally, her motivation is an important key for her success. But one thing should not be forgotten: she needs to be ready for great triumphes as well. She works on herdelf and is often unsatisfied about herself and wants to improve.'

Re: Ion Tiriac should respect Serena Williams, says coach Patrick Mouratoglou

In one thread Serena's coach says Tiriac should respect Serena, and in another thread he's insulting the top players for #1 moving around
Be consistent Patrick! Either accept that men insult the womans tour or dont be a part of that trolling if you're going to call out other trolls

How is it insulting in terms of what he said about the top players. Last year was a revovling door in terms of the number 1 ranking. And none of the girls at the top are hardly top stars let alone superstars.

Mouratoglou says some dum shit fairly often but he was bang on in relation to 2017.

Re: Ion Tiriac should respect Serena Williams, says coach Patrick Mouratoglou

Nope, the #1 players are stars and Hallof Famers. Wozniacki, halep, kerber.. these are among the best players of this decade
Knocking them in any way is trolling. He's a coach, not an insult comic. One of them has to dominate? Well, Halep IS dominating the #1 spot this year

The first set of this final is what top WTA tennis is in 2018. Defense and movement

I think Tiriac's disrespect of women players runs a bit further than Serena, eg his recently calling Maria Sakkari a man. Surely Patrick, these incidents deserve a mention as well as the things about Serena or is Patrick saying it is ok to disrespect other players as long as it is not Serena?

Tiriac respects Thugrena, but since he has a spine, he also calls players on their BS. He also called Frederer for chickening out of the clay season and basically jsut playing when he wants.

I agree with you about Patrick. Half the shit he says is negative about other top women. He bemoans the lack of rivalries and excitement but would think Serena dominating forever would be interesting? Get real.

That said, Tiriac is an idiot.
