Serena is just not a beautiful woman. Can we stop walking on eggshells please??

Yeah, I was confused because of Serena always wins when she plays against Maria.

His ass tried to be slick and realized he was going to be dragged for filth, and cleaned that shit up. No Nubian Goddess who knows who she is the first and only God. Is never intimidated by the looks of the recessive infants on the planet. I will not even waste the energy to drag the so called "looks" of the greys. You get to live another day chad (male becky).

He knew what he was doing.
No reporter waits 14 years to ask an athlete like Serena such a stupid question. Sounds like this ass was looking for attention. I hope he gets more than he can handle.

Serena is very beautiful inside and out. I used to judge her looks. But that was superficial of me. We are conditioned to view a certain look and size as cute. But there are infinite looks. Plus seeing Serena w her daughter melts my heart. Shes a good mom.

It has to be a disappointing realization that you're one of the biggest athletes on the planet and not only are you dogged out by superficial white people but your own black people do it just as much.

@10:07 That Small penis’d devil made the comment in 2004 after Serena had lost the Wimbledon final to Maria. She then lost another match to Maria later that year. That was the last time Sharapova beat Serena. If anything Sharapova’s broad, point guard like shoulders are the only intimidating thing about her. Serena was dealing with injury, and the murder of her sister the year before. That’s likely why she lost. Nothing to do with Maria looking like what America swears is the standard of beauty...

Just an observation said...

Serena hits that court and she is a force to be reckoned with. Being intimidated by an opponent's looks is something weak people throw out because they are intimidated.

Ignorance breeds hate.

He couldn't find anything else to put her down about so he brings up her looks compaired to a blond hair white women. Thank God she has thick skin because these white reporters just won't stop coming for her

He tried it. All the "allure" in the world doesn't negate Sharavpova getting banned for steroid use. Even though Serena generates millions for the ATP and Nike/Tennis media eats off everything she does, they still can't show her the respect she deserves.

Their favorite player Roger Federer said she's the greatest of all time, and they stil won't give her her due. That's okay, though...Let's see how popular women's tennis is after she retires. Will ATP still get those fat media buys? Will sponsorship still be as lucrative?

I still think she and Federer along with Nadal should start a tour of their own (like they've allegedly been planning.)

Uhm, okay. So you guys are just gone sit up in here and pretend?

Maria isn't even attractive so I'm confused. Serena is such an accomplished and better tennis player but of course white people stick up for their own. Now if only black people stopped dogging on serena's looks.

She should have asked him if his hoe-ass, dick sucking mammy is intimidated by her looks.

She should have then asked him how in the hell he keeps food from falling out of his mouth when he eats considering he has no upper lip....

Pretend? Trust me when I tell you that everyone's standard of beauty is NOT based on frail-looking white women with pointy noses.

Serena is very attractive and I'd be more than proud to have her on my arm.

What you look like 11:41a? Ok so you think she's ugly... You're probably broke..so she still has an advantage over you.. Don't kill a legend boo boo.

11:41a Beauty fades dumb is forever! I wish she could smack you with her tennis racket. Just POW!

@11:31 ONE person said he found her shoulders alluring. And that person was Donald Trump, so it doesn't even count.

On the other hand, numbers aren't subjective and they don't lie. 19-2? I'm actually pretty amazed and happy for Maria that she actually won TWO against Lady Powerhouse.

Shows us once again the level of stupidity!! Serena and her tennis racquet ain’t intimidated at all when she spanking those asses on the court. I love when they get comfortable and think they winning and Serena #beatsthatass!

Nor only is this woman one of the best athletes ever she is also one of the classiest. The only time I gave her a side eye was when she was kicking it with Drake... bit none of us are perfect.
Much respect for that woman.

Sharpova makes more money than Serena not in tennis but modeling calenders and stuff.

Young blonde white girls do sell.

Serena should’ve asked “Are you intimidated by my height?”
