    @Nate Jewels Nate, yes I would. I would say it to anyone whether they are TRUMP who btw often does name calling, the famous athletes, actors, musicians, a 7 year old child, high schoolers, elderly person... I mean anyone! My belief & the message are the same for anyone. Just because someone else is doing something wrong, that doesn't make it okay to do the same to that person. You may want to do it but if you DON'T like what the person is doing to others, you should NOT do the same thing to th...

    This girl is naturally humble. She doesn’t even need to try. I hope she stays grounded. A Good character that needs to be guarded.

    This poor girl played her heart out and won and doesn't even get to enjoy it...shame on the people running the ceremony for letting that go on the way that it did.

  • Mad Jester 10 months ago

    Fredrike- You said some wonderful and true things about Serena and Venus. By why did you feel the need to attack a 20 year old, Naomi at the end??? I'm sure you dislike stereotypes, yet project one on Japanese people. Then basiclly say she is lying when she says she hasn't seen the video. Seems hypocritical. And the line judge wasn't showing bias. Maybe he could have shown restraint knowing a 3rd infraction results in a game penalty. However, he has a history of being very strict in his infraction...

    jared day she’s so different from that angry chimp Serena. I hope she never turns into the chimp that she looks up to.

    What fame?! Everybody is only talking about Serena and if they are talking about Naomi, its asking about the controversy. Not about her. She got screwed horrendously and the crowd encouraged childish behavior in a FINALS GAME! Was never a fan of Tennis, but I expected all sports to have their talent carry respect with them and showcase their sport in a positive light. Tennis (at least women's tennis) has no honor or prestige in it for me. A shameful sport all ruined by one person. A shame indeed.

    This was the worst interview! WHAT DOES SERENA SMELL LIKE!??!? SERENA, SERENA! All of Osaka's photos of her winning have Serena in them.

  • markel thomas 14 days ago

    CaribeLatina-Doll honey you do know that Serena lost to Naomi already before that match? But I’m guessing you don’t even watch tennis. You just hear someone talk about it and get angry.

  • BulletproofKam 10 months ago

    These hosts are a joke they didn't even research her! She's played Serena before but they thought it was the first time!! Bad hosts!!

  • Shayneby Shaynebi 9 months ago

    Bulletproofcammy Most of these media people care about is use her to draw traffic and possibly make her say something controversial, which would bring more traffic to their network, which is the reason why they couldn't even research their special guest in her area of expertise for the interview or her history with the person she played with (Serena). That's not their focus. It's such a shame. I'm glad she won. Well deserve!

  • wonkyu lee 9 months ago

    Bulletproofcammy im sure they didnt even bother to research about naomi but just invited her here to lure her to say things against serena so they can publish that on paper
