Serena Williams, who, along with her sister Venus, will go down in history as among the best tennis players, had a meltdown at the U.S.Open which has created controversy. She has been portrayed as a sore loser, and at the very least, her outburst took away some of the joy her opponent should have had in beating her.
There’s more than meets the eye here. Serena is trying to be everything to everyone, and that never works. Women have believed the lie for far too long that you can do anything you want to, and you can’t. Not at the same time.
