We thought Serena was all warm and fuzzy these days, hanging with bestie Caroline Wozniacki at the end of 2014, complimenting others, having charity events, showing her warm side, giving lollipops to children, but Evil Serena reared her head yesterday at the Hopman Cup when she choked the mixed doubles and called the chair umpire a liar! YOU’RE A LIAR! Here’s to an eventful 2015!

Luke Jensen on College Coaching, Women, Life After Pro Tennis

“If you’re 16 or 17 years old, you need to go to college. Clearly, if you’re not in the Top 100 in the world, you aren’t making money. Anyone outside the Top 100? They’re not making money. They make expenses. I see so many of these top players turning pro and they have no business turning pro. They can’t do like Venus Williams did at 17 years old, going to the US Open and playing the finals. Those people are beyond off-the-chart talented.”
