Serena Williams has a fiery personality, but we aren’t used to seeing her express emotion over personal issues on the court. Sure, she’ll blow up at a judge or get into it with an opponent, but seeing her cry was something new. Check out this video of Serena Williams crying after her first round match at Wimbledon:
In case you don’t understand what prompted her emotional reaction, she said before the tournament that she was on her deathbed after doctors found out she had blood clots. There may have been a point where she didn’t think she’d be able to return to play pro tennis.
Oddsmakers may have installed Serena as a favorite in the tournament, but I’m guessing that’s based mainly on name and reputation. If she’s crying after winning a first round match, it’s pretty fair to suggest she’s not expecting to win the tournament.Google+
