Welcome to the blog, Roberta; What is up with the world’s number one tennis star?
With Wimbledon in the news, is it worth looking at athletes who may not be train-wrecks, but who seem to be racking up disgrace points? Speaking of attractive women, what do you think about Jason Whitlock’s piece on Serena Williams?
Along with the problems he mentions, there was also the feud with Sloane Stephens, another young American Player.
I’ve heard it said that her controversial behavior is good for the sport as otherwise women’s tennis is boring. I’m not setting myself up as her judge, but does anyone else find this a little cynical?
Postscript: June 26th, Serena gave an interview to ESPN in which she told them she has “no problem with anyone in the locker room.” Seriously? Even her interviewers, who are trained to make nothing but positive comments when interviewing superstars, expressed skepticism.
