Volley poor show from star Serena
Unlike fellow columnist Judy Murray, I’m not too big on my tennis and haven’t been since I was a young boy. Back then we would all drop the football and pick up the tennis balls and rickety racquet when Wimbledon was on. I do know a temper tantrum though when I see one, anyone who ever watched the hilarious and historical meltdowns of the brilliant John McEnroe in the 1970s would. And Serena Williams recent televised spat with the umpire in the US Open was a temper tantrum of McEnroe proportions. It had nothing to do with women’s rights as she claimed. She wasn’t being unfairly treated and picked on because of her gender. She spat the dummy out, made a racket while breaking one, insulted the umpire and match officials and deserved to be punished. Game, set and match!
