Serena Williams is arguably—though I can’t conjure any reasonable argument—the greatest female tennis player of all time, both fiercely respected and roundly feared on the court. And yet with the start of each tournament, especially the majors, the unrelenting commentary on Serena begins.

    Thank you for this, it was well written and addressed a lot of the feelings most women have about their appearance, except Serena, and why should she?

    I’m sorry but I am unable to be at the Shadowbrook this evening. I want to have a good time and unfortunately I have a blood panel test at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow, Kinda takes the fun out of things. How about around the lunch hour sometimes this week? We could have appetizers, catch up and I’ll show you the table. Let me know and keep those imogees (?) coming.
