The Wimbledon conspiracy was a name the media gave to what happened to Venus at Wimbledon this year where in the deciding set tie breaker the chair umpire gave Venus' opponent an extra point. It wasn't a bad call, it was an extra point in the deciding set tie-breaker! American reporters have been going on for years now how tennis is prejudiced agains the Williams sisters. The US press dubbed it the "Wimbledon conspiracy".
Now I agree that her Dad is way over the top and a bit of a nutcase but Serena is very level headed. I like her a lot. She's always a good sport and hardly ever argues calls.
I'm aware of what happened to Venus at Wimbledon
. If anything, I would have agreed had that been blown up to a ridiculous proportion. I was surprised it stayed relatively quiet. Sure, there were stories and news about it and the replays were shown over and over, and they should have been, but it didn't get as big as I thought it would.
For Serena to even consider what happened to her to be anywhere as close to the Venus situation is absurd. I've played highly competitive tennis and one lousy point early in a set is nothing to throw a fit over even if the player is right and the chair umpire is an idiot. Point it out, make the complaint, and then move on. To bring up the "conspiracy" situation and to say that anyone is "anti-Serena" after the match is over, is just showing what a spoiled little child she really is.
I've always respected Serena (even though I have zero respect for Venus), but this little temper tantrum and crying over a relatively meaningless point has really hurt her standing in my eyes. Another outburst like that, and I'll really care less about anything that happens to her.
On a side note, I see my boy Agassi lost on Thursday.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
