The venerable New York Times alluded to it. So did a couple regular contributors to my blog. So I went in search of evidence of their allegation that Serena Williams is a tennis Teletubbie. Oh my.
After a five-month layoff, Williams, seeded 81st at the first Grand Slam event of the ’07, easily won her opening match at the Australian Open over Italy’s Mara Santangelo, the No 27 seed. All is right with the world, except this: Williams’ lack of conditioning is clear, stark and troubling. It could mean the seven-time Grand Slam winner is likely to endure another pitiable season. Even worse: If she dopesn’t shape up, we might not actually want to see her in that cat suit again.
A moment of silence please.
