Well there it is. Serena blew a casket in the finals of the US Open yesterday after she was penalized a game point after “verbal abuse”. The referee called her for “coaching” after noticing her coach Patrick Mouratoglou was making hand motions. Serena slammed her racket, had some comments for the ref, and asked him to apologize. The man stood his ground and did not apologize as he had nothing to apologize for. Serena told him not to speak, but then continued to speak to him.
I am a huge Serena fan, mainly because she has an amazing figure. Love her curves. However, after her display yesterday, she definitely lost some points in my book. I understand you are a black woman playing in a sport dominated by white males, but there is a time when you bite your tongue and put your head down. Yesterday was one of those moments. We all understand you were frustrated, it doesn’t help that you were getting your ass handed to you, but take the L and move on to the next tourney. No reason to bring your daughter up in the conversation.
It’s instances like this where I hope Serena goes on a losing streak and doesn’t win one for awhile.
P.S. Props to Naomi Osaka for dominating Serena in the Finals. Hold your head up high. You won fair and square.
