Serena Williams Says She Doesn’t Love Tennis


Picture 7 of 10

Considering that these comments are coming after a victory, it’s quite puzzling as to why Serena would say this. If you look into these comments hard enough, you could almost say that Serena is like the Randy Moss of tennis:

After winning her opening match of the 2012 tennis season, Serena Williams told reporters she doesn’t love the sport in which she excels.

“I don’t love tennis today but I’m here,” she said after beating Chanelle Scheepers, 6-2, 6-3 in the first round of the Brisbane International. “I can’t live without it — there’s a difference between not loving something and not being able to live without it. I have never liked sports and could never understand how I became an athlete.”

Serena went on to say that she doesn’t like working out or training and that her 2012 schedule will be scaled back in order to provide her rest for big tournaments. The lighter slate also is intended to keep her motivated.

She doesn’t like working out or training? Like a Randy Moss or a Shaquille O’Neal, Serena sounds like any big-time athlete that plays their sport because they are good at it and it makes them rich.

So you mean to say Serena isn’t applying herself? She says that she doesn’t love tennis but she isn’t the only one. Coincidentally, we don’t care too much about tennis either.

  • I can understand that. It’s like performing but you lose your love for being out on the stage. You do it because let’s face it, you have a house note but if you didn’t have to do it, you wouldn’t.

    I enjoy watching Serena play, but I think that if she’s lost her passion for it and is just there for the checks to go ahead and put the rackets down and focus on something that she does love. I fear that if she loses her passion for the game, she loses that edge against others and she becomes vulnerable. Better for her to go out as one of the best than to see her limp through tennis season with no passion and a string of losses.

  • I can imagine Serena win a trophy: She then smiles at the camera, waves at her fans and still smiling, she signs autographs. Then she gets back to her room, delicately keeps the trophy on her table so as not to break it, angrily breaks the racket, and throws the tennis ball away through her window. Then she happily pockets her prize money and says to the tennis world, the officials and the fans, “BULL-SHIT. I hate you all”. …..What a wonderful world…
