Serena Williams still rates herself as the best player in the world even though she has been toppled from the top spot by Russia’s Dinara Safina. “We all know who the real number one is,” Williams told a news conference at the Italian Open on Monday. “Quite frankly, I’m the best in the world.”
Williams then went on to face Patty Schnyder in her opening match in Rome, which she lost 6-2, 2-6, 6-1. The World No.2 has now entered a 3-match losing streak dating back to her final loss in Miami to Victoria Azarenka, followed by an opening round loss in Marbella and now this loss to the Swiss.
What does this teach you? Don’t open your mouth when you cant back it up on court. I should have some compassion for Serena because I do think she is just the best player in the world, but this is just over the top and I’m quietly glad she lost.
