Did you see the pathetic press conference with Serena Williams this morning? It's one thing to express disappointment in a loss, quite another to handle losing the way Serena did last night and throughout her career. Classlessly. (Not a word, but it should be)
"I just think she made a lot of lucky shots."
That was just the first of her gems. For those of you who didn't watch, this could not be further from the truth. Williams got outworked. But why give Henin any credit? After all, she's only the top player in the world. Surely, she didn't play well.
She was asked if her assessment was that she lost, rather than Henin won. "I think that's usually the case with me," she said, "that it's for me to win or lose."Ah. I see. So what went wrong Serena, can you explain?
"No I can't," she said.But let's get back on topic and talk all about ourselves.
She was asked if she thought her fitness was an issue. "I'm very fit," she snapped. "I can run for hours."This isn't much of a surprise from Serena, but it remains an embarrassment. Often times I just root for her to win, so the world isn't subjected to another American athlete with a sense of entitlement.
