ESPN just showed some of Serena's post-match interview, and it was all about how she didn't play well today and how her losses come because of her playing bad - not because another player plays really well.

That really irks me; does Serena have no comprehension that how other players play may affect her?

Of course she had more errors today than she did against Schett!! For one, Sugiyama is a better player than Schett (right now). For another, Sugiyama is known as a scrappy player, we all know she gets a lot of balls back...and that leads to errors by her opponents. Instead of Serena saying, "She gets so many balls back that it forced me into errors," Serena has to talk about how she played bad :rolleyes:

Also, it's no coincidence that Serena made errors against Henin and Mauresmo. Those ladies are fast, athletic, and they mix up the pace and spins of the ball. That frustrates Serena and leads to errors. Serena, though, won't admit that.

Let me give you a bit of advice:

If you don't like Serena, stop watching her matches. Especially her interviews.

In her ESPN interview she said that she made too many errors, and AI played well. What more do you want her to say?

I know:

The other girls are the best in the world, they can beat me all the time. :rolleyes:

Maybe you should mind what your favorite players are saying. Serena is gonna say what she wants and how she is going to improve her game reguardless of what people like you think. Noone bothers giving credit to her for her wins.

That is total BS. Players ALWAYS say that Serena plays well and that she is tough...but Serena consistently brushes off her opponents play aside. Maybe she made unforced errors because the opponent ran her around and made her hit one more ball...does she EVER think of that?! She whines when she is on court...she whines when she is off court and loses. She makes a bad loser and even worse...a bad winner.

I was wondering when someone was going to bring this up.

Look Serena has a great attitude, its why shes number one. Sometimes you need to say, 'yes she played better', at others you need to knock yourself down.

DAMN! EVERYONE is obsessed with Babygirl!!! :hearts: But I can understand why! ;)

Here's a direct quote from her interview. Go to the Roland Garros site to read it all. Babygirl is classy and gracious, like always! :hearts:

Q. Can you talk about the match? Did she play really well? Was it more what you were doing?
SERENA WILLIAMS: You know, I think she played very, very well. I made a lot of errors and I wasn't hitting my contact point where I wanted to. I was slightly off today.

LOVE YA SERENA!!!! :kiss:

serena can brush them off b/c what she says is true, and again another just BS thread.

FANS JUST WON'T GIVE IN

PLAYERS AND COMMENTATORS ARE STLL AGREEING THAT SERENA IS BEATING HERSELF IN HER LOSSES AND NOT GETTING BEAT.

PLAYERS ARE SAYING GOING INTO MATCHES, IM GOING TO HAVE TO PLAY WELL BUT MAINLY HOPE THAT SERENA IS OFF AND LETS ME IN THE MATCH

Serena just can't give the other girls credit
And you just can't stop pointing that out can you??? If you don't like what she says (or what she doesn't say) then don't watch/listen to her. She is her own person and she says what *she* thinks, not what you think she should think. If you want to dictate how your "virtual" tennis star should act then go get out your playstation and hope they one day have a game that allows you to play out post-match interviews.

Just stick to your Kim Clijsters if you want 100% niceness and modesty all the time. Everyone is different. Serena is a character and it wouldn't do for everyone to be the same. It would be a mutual admiration society of dullness.

Q. One of Amelie's biggest weapons is her down-the-line backhand. Is it easy or difficult to read where she's going with that ball?
SERENA WILLIAMS: Actually, I think she hits a cross-court almost better. Every time -- I played her last time, she was hitting some great balls cross-court.
I don't really focus on which person's side is better or what's -- going, they hit this at this degree and this angle. Normally when I'm out there, I focus on what I'm going to do.
