Yeah, notice how she selectively went medieval on a smaller Asian woman. I am sure she had calculated that if she displayed the same vulgar and violent tirade against a white linesperson, she would be risking her career (and possibly her life) because of a much larger white constituency. She's smart and a coward.
Serena is not the first person to get angry, and will not be the last.
Serena has shown good sportsmanship her entire career. She was wayyy out of line at the USO but she does not have a history of this behavior. It is amazing that people want her suspended.
I do agree that Serena does NOT deserve to be suspended and I hope the USTA investigation does not pursue this further, especially for a first time offender who never usually complains about calls, etc.. Thank you for showing this side of Serena that so many people who only see one unfortunate moment and come to quick judgement.
Funny how Serena remembered so many details but seemed to have selective memory loss about her language and outburst. Now she's on the talk/news shows trying to polish her image that she herself tarnished. Clearly her actions AND words spoke equally loud and were both equally inappropriate. She should be sanctioned and held accountable by the appropriate governing board. She brought her sport and her public image to a new low. If I were a company using her for product endorsement or as a spokesperson for anything I would have to seriously reconsider continuing to do so.
Was very proud of Serena for taking responsibility for her actions. Know she will grow from this experience and continue to prosper.
