I’m not going to lie and say that everyone who excels in a particular field loves what they do. We’ve all met someone who was brilliant at math but hated it, and rightly so because math is the evil that possesses the young and old in movies like The Rite and The Devil Inside.
Speaking of devilish things, for the billionth time Serena Williams should have just keep her mouth shut and her feelings inside when she told reporters after winning the first round of the Brisbane International that she hates tennis, working out, and sports in general.
“I don’t love tennis today, but I’m here, and I can’t live without it…I don’t want to go anywhere any time soon. It’s not that I’ve fallen out of love; I’ve actually never liked sports, and I never understood how I became an athlete, I don’t like working out; I don’t like anything that has to do with working physically. If it involves sitting down or shopping, I’m excellent at that.”
If I didn’t already think of Serena Williams as the worst role model and most arrogant twat in sports besides a few football and basketball players (Vick, Bryant etc.) than I might feel bad over the fact that her father pushed her and Venus into tennis at a young age.
It’s just very hard to feel sympathy for someone who once told a line judge that they’re lucky she’s not shoving a ball down their throat and then apologized on national TV with the words “I got a little overexcited.”
