Serena Williams was knocked out of the Australian Open 2012 this morning in straight sets by unseeded Russian Ekaterina Makarova 6-2 6-3.

Now she has come out with the outragous statement that she would not have played the tournament had it not been a major.

“No, no way. I probably shouldn’t have played. But no way,” Serena told reporters. “I never blame any injury that I have because I feel like she played really well and she deserved the win…Obviously I’m not 100 percent, and I haven’t been. But it’s no excuse.”

I find this a complete joke after we reported that after Brisbane she was in Melbourne early training and looked completely fine (she only twisted her ankle).
