“We were in America the last time I checked. Don’t look at me. If we’re ever walking down the hallway, stay on the other side. You’re totally out of control. You’re a hater and you’re un-attractive on the inside. What a loser!”
Serena Williams with a tirade to the Umpire Eva Asderaki after penalising her for yelling “Come On” before Sam Stosur hit the ball at this years US Open Final.
Serena was the LOSER!!

Once upon a time I slept in the same bed as my doubles partner. (Not saying who, as there have been a few) I was Married to someone else at the time, but nothing happened. I couldn’t sleep though, incase I was violated in the night! lol
Always play to win, never give up, but most of all show integrity and honesty (with line calls) and show humility if you lose. Leave the court with a smile.
