Serena Williams won her opening match of the 2012 tennis season yesterday at the Brisbane International, but she wasn’t loving the game, according to Yahoo! Sports.Williams said in fact, she has never loved tennis, or sports at all:
“I don’t love tennis today but I’m here. I can’t live without it — there’s a difference between not loving something and not being able to live without it. I have never liked sports and could never understand how I became an athlete.”
Williams also said she doesn’t like training and working out, and will be cutting back this year to train for bigger tournaments.
Coming from one of the most competitive, athletic, and passionate women on the tennis court (in all sports, really) we’re not sure how much of this we really believe.
