French Open

Serena Williams showed passion but lacked professionalism

Serena Williams showed passion but lacked professionalism

Serena Williams is a fierce competitor. She doesn’t let anyone tell her she can’t do something. In August, she was singled-out for having worn a bodysuit (to help prevent blood clots) at the French Open; she was told her choice of clothing was inappropriate and would not be allowed in future tournaments. So when she stepped onto the court for the U.S. Open in a tutu, everyone was talking about the 23-time Grand Slam champion’s brash notion that she should be told what to wear.

But as many of us — including me — were applauding her daring outfit, our conversations abruptly changed during the finals against Naomi Osaka this weekend.

“You are a thief.”
