Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Last year, Williams was stunned in the final by Sam Stosur, a match best remembered for Williams directing a series of insults at the chair umpire, including, “You’re just unattractive inside.”

Two years before that, Williams launched into her infamous foot-fault tirade and was docked a point on match point, ending a semifinal loss to Kim Clijsters.

When a reporter mentioned to Williams that nothing of that sort has happened this year, she replied: “Hey, it’s not done yet.”

Maybe a more appropriate question might be, Can anyone beat Williams besides herself?

“They have to play, and Azarenka is also a strong player,” Errani said. “I think Serena is another level.”
