Sorest loser…

I’m sorry, but Serena Williams is a superstar,  but not the magnificent role model she pretends to be.   She did not play well at the U.S. Open and Naomi Osaka took advantage of it and beat her to win the title.   Osaka deserved to win.   Williams deserved to lose.   She could have shown class worthy of a fine role model.   Instead,  she threw a temper tantrum worthy of a two-year old and was snidely ungracious in her defeat.

This cartoon  says it  perfectly,  but the cartoonist is taking heat for it.  Apparently Ms. Williams’ fans are rather short in the class category themselves.   Perhaps they are still unhappy that Ms. Williams’ strikingly unflattering  catsuit will  not be allowed at the French Open.

Martina Navratilova has  some valuable  words on the issue,  and one can scarcely claim she was shy about taking up for herself during her storied career.
