    Win or lose but love for Serena

      Serena and Federer are the greatest player ever walking this earth. To still make a final win or lose is another victory to her legacy

        one of the biggest problem that I have with Serena Williams she is just too white minded, I am black and I love been black

          I don't know, she always tries to sound graceful but it never sounds quite honest. Like she has to force the nice words about her opponent through her teeth.
          She is a great player but she was outplayed this time and it is great inspiration to others, to see she "is" beatable.

              I respect Serena for being so gracious in defeat and congrats again to Simona she earned that Trophy, therefore I cannot wait for the revenge match.

                So funny every time someone beats her she says “they played out of their mind” lol

                  Halep did play out of her mind, she said herself she played her best match ever

                Serena took this loss like a champ. She is so warm and humble these days. That's a victory in and of itself.

                  I think, Serena, needs to lose some weight. I think she's too heavy right now. She's loses some weight and I think she'll be unbeatable again. If she could slim down like, Venus. I'll be rooting for he again at, US Open. Will she ever win this number 24?

                    This was one of the most disappointing weekends in sports for me. Tennis is my favorite and my two favorites of all time lost at Wimbledon. Serena and my hunky hunk, Roger. I am so bummed out.

                      Simona Halep made Williams look cumbersome and quite amateurish on court. It's time for Williams to call it a day. She's definitely past her sell by date and not great to watch anymore. I always get the feeling William's is just seconds away from throwing another tantrum when things don't go her way. And there's always the risk if she loses again in the US Open she'll throw another unsportsmanlike hissy fit or pull the race card. And we definitely don't want that!

                            The facts are, she's ranked #7 Serena #11 she's 27yrs old, Serena is 37. She did what she was supposed to do but still Serena started trying to play to late. It was over

                                    Again. Just because she is muscular & doesn't have a pin straight Euro nose doesn't mean she is manly. FOR CENTURIES women all over the world wear hair pieces, wigs whatever & white women are the biggest buyers so just stop. We are all different so just stop. It's really an evil things to do.

                                  Serena's changed into being more humble. I like that.

                                    Great timing for Halep. Serena is 37 years old...3 years shy of 40. End of analysis.

                                      A lot of people didnt think she was coming back after the baby but she did. Shes still shy of practice which she readily admits but feels she has work to do. #24 is within her reach. Godspeed Serena...

                                        We as humanity have reached a new low now that we have a woman beating a man in pro sports such as this finals match. But at the same time it's a remarkable achievement for a woman to win over a man in such a manner is simply an amazing accomplishment. We should allow more sports to allow open competitions between genders as tennis is a good example for the success it demonstrates. How about we try boxing next?

                                          Deep down Serena was sick to her stomach that she lost. Halep literally played her best match ever . She was trying to be very gracious of defeat but she was crying on the inside. Serena is going to get to 25 she just got to stay healthy, motivated, and devote more time to tennis like she used to. Us open here we come #24!!

                                          When she show emotions, "she is a spoilt brat throwing tantrums" when she chooses to be gracious " she is pretending" human race is the worst race ever existed.... Just wished she would retire already for reasons best know to me and Serena Williams herself.... Well done for choosing the gracious route 👏👏👏

                                            I personally don't understand how black women in the West survive this kind of abuse consistently from white men. I have never cease anything this. The shame our bodies, the dehumanize us, the hate us but strangely obsessed with us. The abuse from white men toward Serena is something else. They do the same for black female and male players. Honestly.

                                              @A Messay I just don't think anyone would be so insulting towards her if she was more gracious and humble. It's her attitude that many don't care for.

                                            Serena shoukd realize that God Jehovah doesnt like her to abuse her power. Unless she apologize to Ramos, Thiem, etc. God Jehovah will keep on punishing her by making her losing at the most vital rounds in any GS tournament. Thats Karma for her. Serena should repent. Its never too late.
