Serena Williams (did you know her middle name is “Jameka?”) has never lost in the first round of a major tournament, until now.
In the past she has won no less than 13 grand slams but was beaten on Tuesday by French player Virginie Razzano, ranked 99th worldwide.
The nice sister, Venus, did better, beating her Argentinian foe Paula Ormaechea (ranked No. 120) 6-3 in the final set. Not feeling sorry for someone with Serena’s attitude comes pretty naturally to me.
More naturally than yelling at line judges and making snide, disparaging comments about her opponents in post-game interviews comes to her.
