Serena Williams Does Not Get Beat

She may lose matches, but she does not get beat. After losing to Justine Henin 6-4, 6-3 in the quarters of the French Open on Tuesday, Serena made like a typical Williams sister and failed to credit her opponent. Check out the sportsmanship oozing from Serena’s lips:

“All she had to do was show up,” Williams said. “I just pretty much stood back and let her take advantage of me.”

Responded Henin: “It’s her opinion. I thought I just did a good job. And I just see it from my point of view, and I did everything I could to control the match.”

Spoken like a true brat. Now you know why people around tennis dislike Serena. Think about it — it takes a world-class player and stellar performance to knock out the likes of Serena. But there she is diminishing the feat accomplished by Henin — “all she had to do was show up.” I repeat, Serena Williams does not get beat.

    This is not exactly an isolated instance for either Serena or her sister, Venus. In their minds, they are unbeaten, except possibly when they play each other.

    Journalists and commentators never mention this because they are too concerned with being PC. If a white player behaved this way, they would be labeled bad sports, immature and worse.

    I’m just waiting to see who besides you finally has the guts to tell it like it is.

    Serena and Justine Henin don’t like each other much — she accused Henin of cheating by calling time while she was serving a few years back — so, she’d be loath to admit that she beat her, ever.
