    I don't keep up with tennis too much, but watching the men's final today heard about the press incident with Thiem. He had won doing his press conference and Serena just lost coming in 10 minutes early kicking him out of the press conference to get hers over with. What a diva poor sport. She really sucks right now, but she has a great career, don't tarnish career even more than it already has been.

    Couldn't watch the ESPN video so had to do some hunting around on YouTube. Saw Thiem's understandably irritated reaction and saw this commentary by Boris Becker:


    He lays blame upon the press conference organizers rather than any player. Is he right?

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    I think that's the PC answer, but most who are speaking openly blaming both organizers and her. She wasn't patient, did a diva showed up early and was basically like take me now.

    Remember ten years ago when she threatened the line judge at the US Open?

    She then held a press conference and showed unbelievable disdain for having to be there.

    Not nice then, not nice now. To say the least.

    What about Seb's actions post-race today?

    I don't know anything about Serena personally so my opinion is completely based on what is shown by cameras and what she says in front of them. She comes off as immature in her actions and words rather than taking the high road like Federer and who doesn't sweat the small stuff and looks grateful for his talent and abilities (and to make a good living from them). Who knows...maybe Federer keeps it together in front of the public but hides some negative aspects and she just acts that way in front of media but is otherwise the nicest person you'll ever meet. Hard to judge a book by its cover.

    I'd like to take the Kimi approach to it all if I was in that position...

    Both sisters are garbage. Serena should have been thrown out of the sport a long time ago.

    By far, Serena is the most hated female in TalkTennis [Forum] History.

    I don't need to watch the video of The ****, nor do I want to, as I will quite literally brick my phone and/or TV.

    Matt could tear a 300# chunk of concrete out of his driveway & do the same.

    She is trash.

    All you need to know about her is that during one of her matches said she'd shove a tennis ball up their rear end.

    I saw her play at a local tournament when she was just starting out. I was about 20 feet from court. I could not believe how huge her legs and butt were. like an nfl linebacker. incredible.

    Well I am a huge tennis fan, ok player and big spectator for many decades. Serena and her sister have ALWAYS been huge talents with very patchy attitudes (their father is a real piece of work which may be some of the problem). Venus has way better attitude than Serena who continues to have attitude issues. One might think that Serena’s age and career success would tend to smooth/polish her out - no not so much.
