The Blame Game

And with the Williams sisters losing at the French Open today, we're treated to one of my favorite things in all of sports ... the Williams Sisters post-loss denials. It goes like this, they lose. Instead of finding fault with their own game, they throw blame on their opponent or insist that the only reason their opponent won was due to luck. From the Sports Illustrated article above, Serena had this quote:
I wasn't nervous. She was getting a lot of balls back, and I might have let that get into my head. She was just making some shots I don't think she's ever made before, or she probably would be in the top two.
This was actually tame in comparison to some of her more classless loss following tirades. Click here for more.

My favorite is when Serena gets behind and she starts holding her wrist or limping on a "bad" ankle. It's like clockwork.

Thank goodness for the Williams sisters - the last of the old-school pro wrestling heels. The only thing that would complete Serena's gag is if she were to run up to congratulate the winner and spray an oversized atomizer of Sharapova perfume in her opponent's face and cackle madly as she ran off with the belt.

Uh, trophy.

both off them have been deceiving them selfs for a long time. even some years back, when they were winning it, wasn't with actual good playing but simply 'cause they'd hit with a lot of power.
