Strange Scene At Wimbledon
As A ´Dizzy, Disoriented´ Serena
Williams Is Forced To Withdraw
From Doubles Match

Business Insider, by Cork Gaines

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 7/1/2014 12:58:31 PM

Two days after losing in the third round at Wimbledon, Serena Williams was scheduled to play a doubles match with her sister Venus, but appeared to suffer some sort of breakdown before the match. During warm-ups, something was wrong as Serena had a lot of trouble hitting balls and even looked uncoordinated trying to pick balls up. (VIDEO) She even had trouble tossing the ball up and was dropping balls during warm-ups. (VIDEO) Serena went to the sideline where she was met by Wimbledon personnel. She appeared to start crying as her sister looked on.

Comments:
Lots of videos with article.

She looked drugged. Disoriented. There was a 13 minute delay while she sat on the sideline, then she attempted to play. Couldn´t even bounce the ball. But she telegraphed that something might abort match in yesterday´s UK Express:

"Serena Williams fears Wimbledon doubles trouble"

SERENA WILLIAMS is in such a state emotionally and mentally that she has confessed she does not even want to play doubles where she was once ranked number one in the world with sister Venus.

Serena is a known Drama Queen....

Without seeing the video, only reading the discription, sounds like she possibly could be dehydrated. Or faking it.

Even the tennis pro commentators didn´t think her behavior was consistent with illness. By the time she finally walked off the court they inserted a little mention of possible drug testing.

She was either drugged or faking.

Based upon her giving notice yesterday (see OP comments) that she didn´t want to play doubles today (that loss to Cornet was resounding - a real ego whack for this diva), I suspect that she was determined not to play and did something about it. No eye makeup. Blank expression. Bad case of diva-ism. Nice try but no Academy Award or Emmy.

Serena´s ´press conference´ (or whatever they call it) after the game was a mess. It was like the end of the world. She also played the diva immediately after losing. I know the players are allowed a certain amount of time to celebrate but Cornet sat a little too long and Serena gave her a punch in the shoulder. Serena then stood just behind Cornet with her hand on her hip in one of those rude positions as if to say to Cornet ´don´t keep me waiting. Don´t you know who I am?´ I will be glad when both Williams sisters retire.

As the OP-linked article states, her boyfriend/coach has bailed out.

The WTA is expected to release a statement shortly and USA TODAY Sports confirmed with Venus that Serena was OK this morning, has been "sad" and has not seen her coach, Patrick Mouratoglu, in two days.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/tennis/2014/07/01/serena-williams-venus-williams-wimbledown-retire-ill/11900603/

They are now blaming a "virus". Sadness is not a symptom of viral infection.

But guess what! Everyone is talking about her! (Isn´t that her most favorite thing?)

Uh-oh. From last June - 2013:

It is the off-court romance that has been the talk of Wimbledon.

But yesterday there was one woman who was not so keen on discussing Serena Williams’ relationship with her tennis coach – namely, his wife.

This is the first picture of Clarisse Mouratoglou, who is reported to be divorcing her husband Patrick after learning of the attachment.

Re #7, Cornet did not take an inordinate amount of time to "celebrate" this huge win.

Then she went to her chair, as they always do. She´d barely sat down when Queen Serena came over, huffy, and tapped her on the shoulder to "get going".

It was unbelievably rude. Had anyone every deigned to pull that on the endlessly celebrating Serena, she´d have decked them.

I love tennis and love Wimbledon. I watched her game against Cornet. Williams´ stamina left her quickly. She was in a mess by the third set. It looked to me like she was having trouble gaining her breath, and seemed truly weakened by the end of it. Her presser after the match was a disgrace of arrogance and selfishness. I was truly disgusted with some of her comments. She is not a graceful person, nor is she a well socially adapted person. She and her entire family have constantly suffered "victim" syndrome because of their race and seem very uncomfortable that they are not white. I think this singles loss drove her self confidence right down the crapper and she was probably self medicated to get out there on the doubles court. Combination of meds, self pity and internal mental aberrations simply overwhelmed her. That´s all in my own humble opinion, of course.

Fighters from the Islamic State extremist group have used a rocket launcher to shoot down an Iraqi military helicopter, say officials. The pilot and co-pilot of the Mi-35 aircraft were reportedly killed in the attack which happened between the towns of Beiji and al Senniyah in northern Iraq. The shooting down of the helicopter showed the insurgents´ ability to hit back against air operations by Iraqi authorities and the US-led coalition.

Hackers’ Attack on JPMorgan

Updated, 9:03 p.m. | A cyberattack this summer on JPMorgan Chase compromised the accounts of 76 million households and seven million small businesses, a tally that dwarfs previous estimates by the bank and puts the intrusion among the largest ever. The details of the breach — disclosed in a securities filing on Thursday — emerge at a time when consumer confidence in the digital operations of corporate America has already been shaken. Target, Home Depot and a number of other retailers have sustained major data breaches. Last year, the information of 40 million cardholders and 70 million others were compromised at

Liberian officials said the U.S. case was inevitable and unsurprising. “It means the entire world is not safe,” said Liberian assistant health minister Tolbert Nyenswah in an interview on Wednesday. “It means we should all be making frantic efforts to stop Ebola in West Africa,” he said. Mr. Nyenswah and other Liberians are hoping that the U.S. case will help to mobilize more global resources to fight Ebola in West Africa, where the epidemic originated earlier this year. “It’s a clear indication that Ebola has no boundary,” said Thomas Siakor, a 32-year-old university student and bread vendor in Monrovia. “It can kill

Although his symptoms could have indicated Ebola among other things, no one at the hospital asked him if he had recently traveled, a source close to the case told CNN. The man, who had just flown from Liberia to the States didn´t offer the information either, the source said, and the man left the hospital.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents?

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
