2 Comments for Serena Williams Pulls Out Of Tokyo, Beijing Remains On Her Schedule

Darryl Thompson Says:

Serena deserves time off. She has been incredibly active this year and last. At her age (32) she would be pushing it to play so soon; besides every player needs time to enjoy a big win like a “17th” slam win – don’t they?

Thinking about the NY crowd being “In the Trunk” because they rooted for Monfils is the height of chicken crap! Who writes such a thing when the crowd cheers for Rodger F or Nadal, or when the crowd cheers for a foreigner (Russian pin-up) over the Williams Sisters???


Linda Johnson Says:

I’ll talk FACT! the only reason women tennis is at the top of games is because of the Williams sisters, even with Vennis not playing so well they still watch to see if she will win or lose, and of course Serena…who for as long as she is playing has a neverending story of the history of women’s tennis in 2011 on,(not to mention what they have allready done. I say keep writing history SERENA!
