Serena Williams' press conference following her semi final loss to Naomi Osaka at the 2021 Australian Open.
Sir Rena is a beautiful man.
Some of these comments are concerning...at the time of this interview she JUST lost. And instead of hating (or praising) on the other player , she focused on herself and her own faults. That takes real ownership, and comments about Serena getting "replaced" by a "younger and beautiful" player is just sexist. Also, the fact that she made it to the semi finals considering she just had a TREMENDOUSLY complicated pregnancy is so- and I cannot express this enough- badass. I respect Serena immensely and I am excited to see Naomi's career grow, but there is no need to hate on Serena because of her emotional reaction to the game. She's always been competitive, we all knew that, and we loved her for that.
Serena should repent
not one mentioned of her opponent.
you lost cause you are a racist and a sexist.. just pack up
Karma is Bitch..right serena? You done this to Sharapova and now you feel the same🤣🤣🤣 Glad that Naomi Won over him...
THEYRE BOTH BROTHERS SHE IS NOT A WOMAN. 100% FACT
Osaka made you that unforced errors....watch how you run after a ball from point to point, side to side and how well placed Osaka hits the ball which you can't reach.
People do way to much she plays tennis. She has won so many titles. Omg a human being doesn’t has treats you don’t like get over yourselves. WTF DOES WHO SHE MARRIED HAVE TO DO WITH HER GAME. damn people love to hate but don’t do shit with their own lives.
Still got the passion. She can get there. Yes Naomi played great but Serena did not. Don’t think Naomi’s A game is as impressive as Serena’s. She’s definitely been nervous in these big moments since she came back from giving birth. Hopefully she can get to 24. Would love to see Naomi get to double digits. She’s a superstar!
That's ridiculous that one bare legged catsuit looks like something out of that wrestling circus 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
I love Serena, this was nothing to hang her head about. You can't stop the inevitable and these kids that you go up against have literally watched you since they started playing. If you choose to continue you can't let your guard down and you can't let them see you sweat. Stay graceful and come back harder and let them know you'll retire when YOU decide too. If she's reading this somewhere, know that you could never be replaced youre a pillar in tennis and you've paved the way for young women to be more in a world of men. And that alone is something Olympia can be proud of.
Serena is a washed up big time drama queen & cry baby 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Please woman, retire all ready, she never gives credit when credit is due, U got outplayed. We love U, 23 gram slams, to many strong prayers out there out, no one will surpass her. It's been clear every gram slam has been won by a different players for few years now. Go home be a mom, wife. U have made this country proud of your achievements. 🙏💪💛💪💛🙏
Literally never seen any other female athlete be as much of a Diva as these sisters.
@Ethereal •Solana• probably still a racist thing with her
@Ethereal •Solana• if you say so.. She still refused to shake the girl's hand, like the child she is. 😂💀😂💀😂💀😂💀😂💀
@zeranzeran people in Asia, don’t exactly rep mixed race people. Serena probably had heavy emotions about it. Just say you hate her if you never liked her or her accomplishments
@zeranzeran and Asians in Japan don’t accept her as much because of her skin. As in, they don’t see her as “one of them” although she represents Japan. The call them hafus or something
@zeranzeran Osaka is blasian (black+Asian) biracial. It’s not because of her race. Serena has a black and white biracial baby 😂💀
Dear Serena, if you read these comments, then I hope you read this one because I think so highly of you. I’m always rooting for you! Best wishes for your future tournaments!
Serena's final words are very prophetic......"I'm done." Sorry Girl, but the Champions bus has left the station. Those days are all behind you.
Losses are always “Big Error Day” - no props to great opponent possibly causing those errors = (Sore Loser rolling eyes at last question)
yeah that was holding back tears caused by the previous question. If she truly feels beaten she says so, eg Halep loss at Wimbledon, Azarenka loss at the US Open, Pliskova loss at the Australian Open etc
I just saw the Match. Serena is retiring because she felt the weight of Osaka's game. She plays like a younger Serena. She cannot be BEAT!
Lollllllllll what a loser
“Oh, yes. You’ll be queen. For a time. Then comes another, younger, more beautiful, to cast you down and take all you hold dear.” *quote from GAME OF THRONES*
Her next meeting against Naomi will be legendary as she likes to take revenge. 😁
lets hope in its in a grand slam! Cause she is her biggest obstacle right now
i can't believe that Serena Williams is still a tennis player since Sydney 2000
Big gang Firewood luv ok luv lololol
Patrick andrew bennerman Mosley is sylvia sylver Mosley david earl bennerman son 8 9 52 8 11 86 Do King Okay luv lolololol
You’re done allright, freak!
You just lost and game and what you get is "are you saying farewell to tennis" no wonder she hates journalists wtf
I can’t believe she has this much hunger after she has the record for open era gs singles titles. She is unquenchable. She is literally the Open Era GOAT and she is still hungry for more gs titles. Incredible!
Enough is enough drama queen
I love how dramatic she is lol, she's emotional. been watching her since the beginning.. I play tennis as well.
Somebody have to make errors
Just admit steffi graf is better than you even if u r 23 and she is 22...
@Fly Like A Lamb Turned more masculine too!
@Rocco and 10 after the age of thirty, talk about longevity and mental strength
Steffi won 22 at age 30 when she retired and Serena had a whopping 13 at the same age. Hmmmm!
She needs to eat some humble pie. The errors were because she’s too slow to react to Naomis returns
Osaka made Sereno look like a BITCH...
Its ok Serena, you are a legend, maybe its time to quit while yiu are still on the top ..
Just admit Osaka overpowered her.....she played well but Osaka was better!!!!
Serena did not play well though/ did u see the stats?
Imagine how many little black girls and all little girls in general are/were inspired by her. She's an absolute inspiration.
God i hate this woman.
Time for her to stay at home. Let the young players play the game 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
The 23-time sore loser.
errors ??? u didnt commit any errors in dis match serena. naomi is just too good for u...its just that, age is catching up on u...just like anybody.we get old sometimes....
@Nemo Spence Carlos should have kicked her FAT ASS out of the tournament.
Hello. Are you related to the umpire Carlos Ramos? Lol
Has it been proven that Serena is really a female...?
Serena has been desperately trying to get to that No. 24 (and possibly overtake that) but keeps getting stopped. Her body language on court has changed and it's clear she's been constantly thinking about that No. 24. Don't forget she'll be 40 this year. A fair question from the reporter... so no need to troll him. And a fair emotional response by Serena... so no need to troll her either. I trust she'll get to that No. 24 this year and hopefully 1 better by 2022. Carpe Diem Serena!!!
We love you, Serena? You are the queen of Tennis till the end. Never allow anyone to bring you down. Anyone can fall down. But it is about how you get back up that counts You can do it!
No Serena,you didn't lose because you made too many errors,you lost because the better player won,Osaka completely outclassed you.
Also, I feel bad for the opening reporter calling on "Karen"
Use this game you got, and go get roland garros!
MARGARET COURT WILL BE FOREVER THE QUEEN OF COURTS !!! CRY SORE LOSER SERENA !!!
Serena talks about her making errors when realistically Naomi just played very well
@NitSUj if you watch enough tennis, 23 in a match are way too many errors...if you listen to what she said in the press conference...3 more than Naomi? Wtf does that matter?? More listening and less talking
@zanahorias07 you’re acting like unforced errors are why she lost. Just look at the match stats. 21-24 unforced errors. Serena only did 3 more unforced and she lost the match in straight sets. She clearly was outplayed.
Unforced errors are a major factor in losing matches probably the best indicator. All it took was one game in each set for Serena to lose serve. With Naomi she doesn't have the luxury because she's having trouble battling back. Also I notice Serena's timing is off on the transition game; she's leaving her opponent too much time to execute.
I know what it's called sir
@Randy Riley yeah it’s called a forced error
Our lovely sister
She's an all time great, but Mother Nature is undefeated. She's getting old.
Farewell Farewell my girl
She looks great... She lost alot of weight.... Well done Serena!
Maybe if Serena hadn't tried to ruin her victory the last time, Naomi wouldn't have had that extra 'oomph to humiliate her the way she deserved. :3
Well this wasn;t the first time they met after their US Open clash. Serena won their previous meeting in Rogers Cup in 2019, so she didn't have enough motive to beat Osaka here, who was either way playing incredible tennis.
Wow, interesting observation there!
I think any tear she has to offer up in connection with Osaka losses is probably just deserts after the tears she made her cry in 2018. >> when you're a pro, you should be big enough to admit that your opponent is the one forcing you to make the errors.
Yeah these are forced errors. She was talking about UNforced errors
Poor Serena. I support her.
🥺 we cant stop the aging process...cant always do what we used to do...sometimes thats a very hard pill to swallow.
The problem is like last time she lost to Osaka, she divert attention to her, and she is supposed to be a professional, giving interviews is part of it, she gets paid a lot to be a professional, but she just throws temper tantrums and btw, she said she made lots of mistakes, not once did she say that Osaka was just better. She is a great athlete who got taken over, but she is also horrible at turn sportsmanship. Osaka deserves attention but serena acting like baby every time she loses divest the attention.
You wasn’t chasing the ball down that was the biggest error
it's Naomi's time, sorry she was simply better.
I will give you some real facts that in ancient times, in Italy Rom in the colosseum the gladiators would fight to the death, and at that time it was seen as the biggest
I think if any of you guys were ever fighting for something that you spend so much time training yourself for, your response should never be about the next person it should always be about yourself. All the players who play at this level are expected to good players that's an obvious fact. So her not acknowledging Osaka does not diminish Osaka's brilliance, it is only an evaluation of her own performance. So stop with the hate, I love Osaka infact she's currently the only tennis player I support at the moment but Serena is a Legend in the sport and she's paid her dues and unfortunately non of the negative comments about her can take that away. She can retire today, and history will still recognize her among the best tennis players of all time.
There r always those ppl who join a profession just to break others n see them cry. Sad that it's in the media n journalistic field, wer they do it instead of just reporting facts.
Be gracious in defeat and trey harder next time. i don't wanna recall the tantrums you threw when Osaka was knocking you out of the US Open
her fault? Isn’t she allowed to get beaten???
Please it's good to get out on the upside of winning ...you are a legend .
Serena has nothing to be ashamed of in her professional career. I've never seen anyone with so much grit , passion , determination and fight for the game. She has all the talent and passion of Althea , Billie Jean King , Arthur Ashe and even John McEnroe. She has the heart of a champion and she's just disappointed in herself. Hey champ , shake it off . Let no one tell you when you're ready to retire but you and your body. Regardless you are in the record book Anna Hall of famer. You'll be talked about and showed future generations your film clips. It ain't over yet, You're done tremendous things You got married you had a baby you deal with the pandemic. Just give yourself time to relax. Enjoy your husband and that bundle of joy. Many blessings to you champ in the future.
Serena is a legend! Well done.
incredible playing even once.
We now know how Sasha's importance in the william's tearm
Without Sasha now, serena william can never wins against Osaka
Queen Serena!!! I love you lady and know that you have nothing to prove.!! I love you for you!!! Lady you inspired myself as well as-many others; and you just don’t know!! If you want to keep playing do it, yet know you Queen!!! Babe u 39!!!! Freaking 39!!! Baby, u have nothing to prove!! U are still one winner or error Away in a match and you still in the mix. I hope you can see how great you are!!! Maybe later in years you can see this.. THAT YOU Are QUEEN!!!! Pls smile and appreciate this💜💜💜💜💜👸🏾
I am tired of seeing her be angry or cry every time she loses. It's a losers mentality. Is this the example she wants to set? It seems very immature. No one wins every time. She's lost touch with reality.
"My opponent played well." Never seems to be popular with grandiose characters.
We are in constant competition with ourselves, never another person.
I will give you some real facts that in ancient times, in Italy Rom in the colosseum the gladiators would fight to the death, and at that time it was seen as the biggest entertainment, it was a game at that time, Serena Williams is a gladiator she is a fighter, but now she need to be a five star general, That means that she have to come with strategy and solutions, she have got the technique,and she just need to be consistent find the angle deed and keep her opponent on the move to drain there energy
You have a lot of hypocrisy that clod the truth, you look how much final that Serena Williams lose under Patrick Mouratoglou, and no one say a word, but the white media is very quick to criticise Richard Williams, that build the foundation to Serena Williams and Venus Williams game, Serena Williams is very fit but you cannot just bring fitness alone to a game, where is the strategy and where is the consistency, You cannot have a plan without a solution, if you have a strong adversary as a opponent, you have to watch videos of her game and you look at her weakness and her strength, then you go on to the tennis court and you practice on how to capitalise on her weakness, and anyone that play a game they play to win that is the object of the game, so you have to be very competitive, and Serena need to sit down and watch videos of Naomi Osaka game because Naomi Osaka is the dominant consistent player right now,Naomi Osaka is the queen of tennis right now and to defeat Naomi Osaka you have to come with your A game and you have to be consistent.
Bridget J, That is not just the only aliment of the game that is just a part of the component of Osaka game anyone that can dominate from the centre of the court have a big advantage they reach the ball a lot quicker and they do not have so much ground to cover and playing from the centre of the court the net is lower and is easy to change direction it is just like a king in medieval times that build his castle on a hill so that he can get the advantage a good coach will tell you cannot go tow to tow with a player that is in sync or that have riddim or rhythm to counteract or to neutralise that force you play the ball deep in each corner Serena Williams was not consistent enough she did not go deep in each corner and she did not hold on to her serve case in point Australia final with Jennifer Brady and Naomi Osaka I see Jennifer Brady play a shot and Osaka was frozen she did not even move but Jennifer Brady was not consistent enough so she lose the game and Osaka have a lot more commitment to her game and she is consistent but she will have problems with a young player that have stamina and that is consistent.
A true competitor and one of the greatest players ever.
The match was stolen.
She is wonderful and human ❤
I just saw the interview today. Watching that match was so hard to watch between her and Osaka. I was rooting for her the entire time. I think that world was rooting for her. I really hope she come back with a fire and tie the world's record.....CMack
Of course no one is perfect but it's disappointing that even in this stage of her tennis career Serena continues to be such a sore loser. Doesn't mention Naomi Osaka's incredible playing even once.
She didn't mention Naomi's name either. Such a loser.
on the move,and do not play Osaka at her own game, move Osaka from the centre use the two corner of the tennis court.
Loosing is part of live, so be with it.
When Serena loses she focuses mainly on her errors. Very rarely says that she was just beaten by the better player. Yes she made loads of errors but Osaka's game put huge pressure on Serena to take those chances with they came and those unforced errors are actually forced given the opponent being so strong.. It's very rare you see the Big 3 in the men's game focus on their game after a defeat. They almost always put their losses down to the quality their opponent served up and the pressure they were put under. It's classic Serena. She's a great champion no doubt but sometimes she needs to accept she was outplayed. The Issues in the US Open against Osaka a couple of years back and Klijsters even further back put all the attention on Serena in games where she was being completely outplayed and took everything away from her opponents getting the plaudits they deserved at the time.. I know this was a short interview but she should have congratulated Naomi straight off the bat
Never give her opponent credit
Agreed. Serena’s errors were forced by Naomi because her returns were crazy good.
This woman refuses to give Osaka credit still. Over and over she will not humble herself and just say how well Osaka played like Osaka and all others with good manners say. Repeated making several times the same POINT that it’s just bc she made errors. ‘NOT that it was really hard shots given to me, noooo, it’s because I made easy errors”. How Osaka takes this without saying anything is beyond me. I’m so happy Osaka beat her again since the last time she was again giving such bad attitude and excuses. No more excuses Serena. You should retire and let your younger player have her time to shine. Do u recall any older players treating you with such disrespect when u were coming up and shining?
That Indian man you called a Th he mess you up.
the most disgusting tennis player ever 🤮🤮🤮🤮
Serena got emotional when she realised the opportunity lost due to the numerous unforced errors. It's that thought of what could have been that brought the tears. For me this shows that the GOAT is still as hungry to win as ever. More grand slams will still surely be won.
Hahaha...I’m done I love it. This just made my day
Sir Rena is a strong man
Serena had a great run when she was Naomi age and after...age puts u n a different game so I wasn't surprised with Naomi winning and I wont b surprise when Naomi reach that age and younger kid comes along and beat her... #THATS #JUST #THE #WAY #IT #IS
Let me ask Serena Williams why is the centre of the court so dangerous, I will give you the reason why it is so dangerous it give you a quicker reaction time and you do not have to run so far to cover the court, Serena if you got tow to tow with Naomi Osaka you play right in to her hands,Serena where is your strategy, when anyone is fighting a war one of the first thing that they do is to cut off the power supply, and the centre of the tennis court is Naomi Osaka power supply, use the two sides of the court and that will give her long time to reach the ball to set her self up to pull the trigger any player here my advice and execute it perfectly will beat Naomi Osaka.
It was just a bad day sweetheart. Play this game as long as you want. You are gifted and never forget that.
Jim Jones I hear you loud and clear, but I disagree with you, you say that they all know that, to know a thing and to do a thing, we are talking about practical and theory do you know how much generals went to school for war, but when they went on to the battlefield they lose the war before the war even started, you have to have execution down to a T Serena Williams win the early battle but she end up losing the war and why was that Serena went tow to tow with Naomi Osaka, and that is the reason why she lose, Serena fail to execute the game, Serena was trying to dominate Osaka, but before you try to dominate Osaka you have to take away her power base, and that is the centre of the court, I see Jennifer Brady play some shots that left Osaka frozen but the reason why Jennifer Brady lose it is there for all to see she was not consistent so Osaka got the upper Hand of her.
Reminds me of Messi in Barcelona now.
Serena I sit down and listen to the reason why you say that you lost to Naomi Osaka, what you have to realise you made Osaka the player that she is Osaka spend a lot of time watching you play, so she payed her respects to you, the question is how much time did you Serena Williams spend watching Osaka played, the question is why Osaka beat you Serena Williams, it is just that simple she out fox you you gave her enough time to get set what you Serena did wrong you should not go tow to tow with Osaka she is the younger player so she have more stamina, you should play the tennis ball away from the centre of the court, and can you beat Osaka the answer is yes you can but you cannot allow Osaka to dictate the game from the centre of the court and this have nothing to do with your fitness, it is your decision making during the game, find the corner and keep Osaka on the move,and do not play Osaka at her own game, move Osaka from the centre use the two corner of the tennis court.
