Neither of the Williams sisters have never permitted the commentators to trouble their goals and neither shall I. But _ _it hit the fan when ‘home wrecker’ Chris Everet had the audacity to say on camera, “Serena needs to apologize to that umpire”. As far as apologies go, excuse me but this must be said, “Chris Evert you need to apologize to your ex-husband Andy Mill, for running off with his best friend Greg Norman!” Shut the hell up you barbie-doll wanna be! And in answer to the question should Serena apologize to either of the umpires at the 2009 and 2011 Opens? Yeah Damn Skippy – When Pigs Fly High Over the Flushing Meadows Sky!
True, I became an avid tennis fan once the Williams sister entered the game. On the WTA side I will remain one until both retire. No they haven’t played every tournament and so suffer the ire of most commentators (Mary Carillo, Pam Shriver and HomeWrecker Chris Evert at the top of the list). And yes they have always enjoyed their personal lives and other careers apart from professional tennis.
Nothing but applause for what they accomplish in the major events. People, especially some members of the majority folk here in America, seem to want tennis to remain a lilly-white sport. The Williams sisters have never permitted the commentators to trouble their goals and neither shall I. Even ‘home wrecker Chris Everett had the audacity to say on camera, “Serena needs to apologize to that umpire”. I say she should do so when pigs fly sky high!
It’s sad though to see the USTA refuse to embrace diversity; and importantly how these two women have keep Americans representing the USA at the highest levels of competition in the sport. They are of fine character and resolve. Continue to live your lives fully! Just know that there are many who are disgusted with how you two are used as scapegoats for the bad behavior and antics of other American players. The record books prove they have yet to accomplish what you have and will.
Haters and envious little green monsters have lit up the message boards with abusive language and racist ranting. One such board registered over 3,000 hateful rants. The USTA, the officials they hire, and the gloating they have done two years (2009 and 2011) shows it for what it is – racist a$$holes who also could not run a flea race much less a slam tournament! Still I will continue watching the matches the Williams sisters play worldwide, even the US Open.
