I’m in total agreement with you that she’s a lousy sport and always has been. Her 2018 US Open performance was one of the most disgusting and obnoxious examples of poor sportsmanship and behaviour I have ever witnessed. Generally though she is not as bad in the sportsmanship area as she used to be. I’m not sure your 2009 example strengthens your case of recent poor behaviour. That’s 12 years ago.Used to be?
Used to be as in what? 2009 when she threatened to shove a ball down a lineswoman's throat?
As recently as the 2018 US Open she was throwing a fit because the umpire gave her a coaching violation and laughably accused him of being a racist. She worded it along the lines of "You're penalizing me on MY COURT?!"
Barely offered any congratulations to Osaka, who absolutely obliterated her in front of her idiotic American crowd.
Serena Williams was, and still is a disgraceful sportsman.
not sure about arrogant. But i doubt it. But she is the current doubles partner of Barty.Bad luck Muchova and I am not liking this Brady girl. Seems like an arrogant twat.
Hope Osaka destroys her in the final.
Not disputing that just something about her attitude I don’t like!not sure about arrogant. But i doubt it. But she is the current doubles partner of Barty.
And she is an interesting story. Was stuck in the 50-80 ranking and felt that wasn't good enough. So, unlike a lot of Yanks, she moved to Germany and went outside the USTA tennis system and trained really really hard in the offseason of 19-20. Since then, she has played like a top ranked player. She is a good story of hard work which pays dividends.
She won the first women’s tournament back after the pandemic hiatus. And she has dominated opponents at the U.S. Open, reaching the quarterfinals without losing a set.www.nytimes.com
