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.

PHOENIX — State treasurer and former ice cream chain CEO Doug Ducey campaigned from the middle and the far right, deftly gaining support from the business community and tea party supporters in his bid to win the Republican primary for Arizona governor. Now the victor will need to unite a party fractured by a bitter six-way primary and move back to the middle if he is to defeat a moderate Democrat in the November general election.

Hormone ´protects brains

BBC News, by Helen Briggs    Original Article

The hormone erythropoietin (EPO) could prevent brain injuries in very premature babies, a study suggests. Brain scans show EPO - used illegally by athletes to boost performance - may help infants when given after birth. The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, involved almost 500 babies born between 26 and 31 weeks in Switzerland. The researchers are calling for wider trials of the hormone, which is already given to some babies to treat anaemia. Erythropoietin is a hormone that stimulates production of red blood cells.

Obama’s Inversion Calculus

Billionaire Warren Buffett was an ally of President Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign and the force behind Obama’s “Buffett Rule,” designed to increase tax bills for the wealthiest Americans. Now, the second-richest man in the U.S. has dented Obama’s effort to stamp out corporate inversions. Buffett’s financing of Burger King Worldwide Inc.’s $11.4 billion purchase of the Canadian fast-food chain Tim Hortons Inc. challenges Obama’s argument that inversions are unpatriotic and gives defenders of the practice leverage to make their case.

Not terribly long ago in a country that many people misremember, if they knew it at all, a black person was killed in public every four days for often the most mundane of infractions, or rather accusation of infractions – for taking a hog, making boastful remarks, for stealing 75 cents. For the most banal of missteps, the penalty could be an hours-long spectacle of torture and lynching. No trial, no jury, no judge, no appeal. Now, well into a new century, as a family in Ferguson, Missouri, buries yet another American teenager killed at the hands of authorities, the

The purpose of a grand jury, in theory, is to protect citizens against unfair and unwarranted prosecutions by the government. In medieval England, it was viewed as a protection against the Crown.

But in practice, the prosecutor who runs the grand jury has a great deal of influence in orchestrating the outcome.

In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states.

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.
