I believe Serena & Moochelle have the same fashion stylist. Somebody needs to call the fashion police.

No, it sounds like you love to say it. Maybe someday you’ll graduate 7th grade.

And of course, the last thing that will ever come out is that the incomparable Serena Williams juices. She is in a protected class.

Like a rodeo clown and broom handle, Serena once stuck a racquet in her azz and hit a winner.

“steroids make anything possible”

Yep. She and her sister both have been given affirmative action careers. Not to say they don’t have talent, but they obviously use the drugs. Arms like that on a woman? Come on.

Any other female there would be accusations of steroids....The Lions should draft her as a running back.

That’s nothing.

Should have seen the America’s Cup Race.

At the end the boats were only two boats lengths from each and Team Oracle won!

That was such a beechin contest.

At points, the boats were going 42 knots. Unbelievable!

I agree.

I was watching until they put the camera on Clinton. That was it for me.

I was gonna say a lot of men would be proud to have arms and shoulders like hers.

She is not a normal female, for sure.

She DOES look like a dude, and I bet most of the other female pros talk about it amongst themselves.

I HATE the sails they are using. Whatever happened to cloth sails that they would have to raise and lower during the race?

She made 3.6 million yesterday. Not bad money for a day’s worth. Of course she will only get about a million of it after all the taxes she will have to pay.

I’ve seen these sisters since they were seven.

IMO from my 40 years of tennis I conclude there are lots of steroids being used in tennis these days.

The William sisters are IMO steroid enhanced. The muscle development is IMO UNUSUAL. They also both displayed the intermittent play in their career due to injuries that you would expect from steroid use. I believe that Martina was also very steroid enhanced, she was the mother of it in women’s tennis IMO.

Same for many on the men’s side. Probably Rafael Nadal based on his body and injuries.

Serena is the only one winning championships for America.

There are currently no male players even close to winning any titles.

RE: The William sisters are IMO steroid enhanced.

Why aren’t they being tested like they do the cyclists or baseball players?

If she wasn’t black I would think she is 1970s East German swimmer.
