Williams had admitted in the past that she’d probably lose to a male champion in ten minutes or less.
When interviewed on ‘Late Night with David Letterman’ four years ago, she said: ‘For me, men’s tennis and women’s tennis are completely, almost, two separate sports.
‘If I were to to play Andy Murray, I would lose 6-0, 6-0 in five to six minutes, maybe ten minutes. No, it’s true. It’s a completely different sport.
‘The men are a lot faster and they serve harder, they hit harder. It’s just a different game. I love to play women’s tennis. I only want to play girls, because I don’t want to be embarrassed.’
What Serena Williams should be embarrassed about is earning the same prize money (e.g. at Wimbledon) as the male prize winners, whilst only playing as well as the #700 male seed. Like all her colleagues, she’s a shameless parasite on the men’s game.
