Serena Williams – An Appreciation and a Lament

****

Full disclosure: I have not always been a Serena fan.

Not because she’s “manly”.

Not because she’s “classless”.

Not because she’s “hood”.

My ambivalence towards her was purely sporting. It always seemed like she wasn’t quite living up to her potential. And now I realize that was churlish.

She went through a few years of injuries which would have ended most careers. And those injuries, and her recovery from them, seemed to revitalize her.

She came back stronger. She came back with a fierce determination. She came back with a renewed love of her game.

She came back to dominate a sport in a manner which no other athlete has.

Jordan hasn’t. Mayweather hasn’t. Tiger hasn’t.

What Serena has done in the past few years, and seems bent on doing for a few years more, is nothing short of miraculous. We haven’t seen the like in modern sports.
