Serena is giving up twenty to thirty pounds to some of the other women and still beating them. Same basic deal as Sea Biscuit or Secretariat winning the Preakness with a 180-lb rider. There are and have been athletic stars with much worse personality problems; Billy Martin comes to mind rather easily...
Serena is a brilliant talent (could have been the best ever in the game), but doesn’t stay fit, plays only when she wants to, and continues to whine that the reason she and her sister weren’t accepted into the pack was because they were black. I’d love to root for Serena; she almost always wins, but she’s annoying on too many levels (for me anyway), however, she could change I imagine. Her sister, Venus, has and is more likable (and easier to root for) because of it.
“Serena is giving up twenty to thirty pounds to some of the other women and still beating them.”
You mean bulking up with steroids is a handicap? LOL That’s a new one. By that logic women should beat men all the time.
Venus and Serena are the Jekyl and Hyde of women’s tennis. Can the gracious lady really be the sister of the arrogant bully?
