"Mom is clearly real. She's a real person she was like. You know what worse case you have a broken heart will fix it. You'll be to go. no it's very important. It's a very beautiful thing to say because there is so much pressure built up and that's partly due to the show it's a show about finding love and finding any and getting engaged and getting married so just to have someone be like by the way if this doesn't work out we're going to get through it together and it's going to be totally fine like that's that's a sentiment that i hadn't necessarily i don't remember ever hearing a parent say that a hometown and just hearing that like the light goes off and you're like oh yeah that's true like obviously be great for brand mad if they have that connection ending up together and getting engaged in married and live happily ever after but if not let's just we're going to move forward we'll deal with it and we'll keep going that's great. Yeah agreed and breezy. Yeah i think she was really working up to that moment of saying to matt that she was in love with him she was getting to this point and when she's outside and told him it wasn't a great reaction format like i feel like matt leg spree a lot because on paper they make a lot of sense. I think matt's is we have. We have a lot in common. She's beautiful like we. We have this relationship but there seems to be. It's almost like what serena p. Was saying about matt. You feel like max thinking about break like i feel like i really like bree but like there's just something potentially missing there maybe just from like and we've talked about it all season long. This do could not hide his feelings. Like he is not a good actor like no as soon as bree said it he. There's been times when girls have been like. Oh i'm falling in love with you and he's like thanks like smiling ear to ear like massive and she said it and he was like Yep it was. It was tough madman. Gray bachelor and i. I think he really has handled it all very well if there is one critique for him it's that his reactions sometimes don't match necessarily what the girl wants and it's we can get to it with three p. Where her sister tells her that. I just don't see it. And maybe you guys should end up together and serena peace start spiral little bit and she's freaking out about like. Oh my gosh making the right or wrong decision here and she expresses that to matt and matt is just like. It's going to be fine. We're going to get through it when on the face of that. Saying that. Certainly sounds supportive. But serena p wants more in that moment. She wants more reassurances. She wants matt to seem like he's really like talk to me more about this. And tell me how you're feeling when he's just more like no we'll get through. It'll be fine when that's that's not necessarily what a someone in that situation wants to here. Yeah i i feel like serena p. and she didn't seem like a very solid hometown serena. Ps parents are lovely. I wish we got more time with serena piece parents. We really only saw her mom because her mom was having those conversations with her and Serena's sister but it kind of felt like it kind of felt like a kit situation again. Where kit was like. I made it this far. Now it's time to bail you. Know but with serena i definitely think she had feelings for matt and it was there but she's also she's also really young and she was talking about having that relationship where she thought like it was a and there was no problems and that wasn't the case she was like really crying. She was really emotional about it. I think she needed to work through a lot of her emotions with her mom to be able to come to the conclusion that like maybe one. Maybe it's too soon from whatever last relationship she was dealing with and to like maybe she was trying to use mat to to be the band aid and is like matt wasn't really the right fit. It didn't really click for for her and matt so it was. It was interesting to see. Serena work that all out with her mom and her sister because that's really all she needed and syringe appease young to ever talked about kit being so young street appease twenty two so like they're sitting with her and it just felt like her mom and we're both like this is a good idea. Her sister no messing around they. They didn't even they had just started talking and her sister was like. I don't see it. I just don't see it. I don't you don't see something's missing. You're not that into him was like you're just not that into whatever those moments are happening. I always picture the bachelor or the bachelorette in this case matt sitting in the other room just sitting there like this is nice. Really nice home found that we're on. These people are great. We're all we're all having a good time and just in the other room. She is balling fall. She is trying esp- just figuring out that she is knocking end up with matt that as she said later on that he's not her person and match just sitting in the other room like this is fun. I always a funny visual. But it was good that she figured it out now that she worked it out with her mom and her sister. And because you don't want to go much further your as far as you can go on the show right now but if you go much further than you're really at it so of figure that out now was was good. Definitely i agree with you. I don't think matt picked up on it. Until maybe serena was leaving that night after the hometown and it was like that kind of felt a little awkward because we obviously see matt. Go back and talk to serena and he has to sit down with chris harrison which i feel like was cut down a lot. I just think that you know. We've heard rumors that they were trying to cut part of chris harrison stuff out of the rest of the season. Clearly they're not cutting the women tell all. There were some rumors that they were going to do that. But the clearly they're not doing that But they showed this sit down that. I wish they did to hear about the women. Tell all this drama. It's going to be a lot of. It's going to be a lot of victoria victoria. Like we've seen you were over you. Yeah definitely but i gotta say i feel like matt point could definitely use three g and i feel like ria. You should enlighten our listeners. On how they can get some of their own. Okay three g let me tell you about thirty eight and i think everybody in this room right now the ones i'm sitting with noah's trent. They're all looking at me with smiles on their faces.

Fresh update on "serena" discussed on Press Play with Madeleine Brand
"Champion Naomi Osaka. She is one of only seven current players, male or female, to win four grand slams. And then there is the huge New Year's present. She got a lucrative deal with leave Itan, making her a brand ambassador for the upcoming collection. So is Naomi Osaka, the future face of tennis, the current face of tennis. If so, does she face the same type of obstacles as a black woman that Serena faced? Going. Let's talk about this is Melissa Lawrence Korb it she's a sports journalist and author of Serena Williams, tennis champion sports legend and Cultural heroin. Welcome to the program early, said. Thanks for having Madeline Well, Naomi A. Sokka is 23 years old, and I believe she is one of the highest paid women in tennis. She I think last year made more than $37 million in prize money and endorsements, so Eyes. She at least on the financial front, eclipsing Serena Williams. Um, well, she does play for Japan. So in that regard if you're talking about endorsement, she's definitely competing in some cases, surpassing Serena Williams because of the market. I mean, she is the face of sports in Japan, where it's Serena. You know the NFL bigger stars. Um, that kind of thing. So she's cashing in, even though she lives on the West Coast here. He's definitely cashing in on the Japanese market, You know, especially with the Olympics, she got a big deal. Because the Olympics was coming up in any of the post opponent to this year, So I'd say she's the current base of tennis, but his longest Serena's around she's still the most recognizable. Tennis player of female tennis player in the world right now. Right. So I believe right now, Naomi is seated. Number two. Serena, number seven From from what I could see, Um, talk a little bit more. Serena has obviously been around for many, many years. Talk a little bit about how she paved the way for Naomi. On the on the court. Yeah. Before Serena won her Grand Slam title, Um, in the late nineties, there was more than 40 years. Between the time the last black woman won a title and then Sereno on hers. We've had 15. Rain slam titles by black women in the last 10 years. That's how Serena's changed entering Venus. So now it's not even a big deal. There's so many black women playing That you don't even bring it up anymore. In fact, with Naomi moving into the number four spot Now the top three active players in terms of Grand Slams are black, Serena Venus and the only there 12 and three Wow. So what does that mean? In terms of how tennis is is perceived by the old guard? Because for such a long time, it was such a white sport. Um And there was a particular incident in this last match between the two with Chris Everett, the former tennis champion now commentator and how How she has, um Some comments she made, so I wonder if you could talk about that. You know what Chris over? I mean, there's two things going on. There's one with Chris ever, um kind of being out of touch in terms of cultural. She doesn't really know how to talk about black women. So she just says ridiculous stuff. So you got that going on. Then you have the hyper sensitive reaction that black women who claim Serena as their own. That they take when they feel like Serena's being slighted. So you got that mechanism kind of coming to a head. So I met Chris Evert. I don't know how well enough to know her intent. But I do know when she discusses Serena and Osaka. She tries to make it, uh, Serena's the drama one. Stock of the preferable Negro who's very humble. That's what it comes across. Where is men? Because you got the sexism and their men. You know, they're allowed to be. You can have Federer. He could be. You know, Debonair. You can have joke of it. You can be bombastic. You know, they're allowed to have their own personality. Women come along. We're trying to confine them to box. It. And particularly with black women, So I think that's what's happening with Chris over and she will say, Well, Serena brings the drama. There was no drama in this tournament. Serena was so quiet people were thinking, what's wrong? There was a little drama at all Serena and all soccer get along this line, but it's the way that she presents it. That old may only so humble even some of the stereotypical Asian stuff. She's so quiet. She's so I'm like she's just as aggressive out there and she's telling you, she patted her entire game after Serena, but you know, that's how Prissy kind of events, the stereotypes and it's like you don't know what to say. So then Gina says, ready, But there has there has been drama if you will in the past at the U. S open involving Serena on Lee at the U. S open. And that's what I tried to point out to people that never happened at Wimbledon never happened in Australia. Never happened, Um at Roland Garros. In the history of things that have happened to Serena going back to 2000 when you know that that's the reason we have hot guy that system because she was so cheated, and it seems like in her own country. Whether you're talking Indian Wells or U. S open. You know, like she has some kind of post traumatic stress syndrome or something with the racism from the past, But those outbursts on Lee happened here. That should tell us something that it's only happening in this country. And what does that tell you doesn't tell you that there's something about the umps, the here in the United States. It's different than in other countries will not be umpire the international they travel all over the place, so Um, I think that the guy you know the call he made. There's a lot of discretion. Tennis is kind of weird with the coaching. The women are allowed to have coaching, but not at the Grand Slam. Serena doesn't take coaching so technically, you know, he could make that call. She overreacted. Um when in the last U. S open the previous ones. It was a lines person. Um, the one with Capriati. W Serena was just straight out. Cheated, Um, in that empire was actually suspended, but she's still she's still around. She wasn't fired. So, um, it's just I think the dynamic where You know, um, Serena's at home. She has kind of Ah, She has a huge fan base. But then a lot of people don't like her because she did have to pay that way for Naomi. Naomi has to do with her own stuff. In Japan, where there's a different kind of racism. The whole half who is What they call people or have Japanese s O. They got their own stuff over there. I mean, it's not like it's all good over there. But she's winning, you know, and winning kind of cures a lot of pills. I just think She's dealing with a cultural Biased, but she's very, very secure in who she is. So I think in that sense Um, Serena paved the way for how to handle yourself, You know, and I see her doing a lot of the things that Serena did You know where you know you speak up for yourself. Don't let people tell you they will turn on you. You saw it in the file. The crowd was not behind us all soccer, so she knows that, you know, she just got to go out there and win. And that I think she picked up from Serena. Just you know that's going to do it for you. Go out and win. Stay focused. Don't believe the hype. I feel so bad when things go back. Don't believe that. When do you.

"In our first episode, we explored how an unlikely pair of sisters from Compton. California grew into tennis prodigies Venus Williams, the older of the two was the first to turn professional at the age of fourteen. She found success almost immediately and soon her sister Serena would follow. This episode to Serena Means Business. It's late. January, nineteen, ninety eight and the worst of the scorching afternoon heat Melbourne beats down on the hard court that's hosting the match between Venus and Serena Williams in the Australian Open. The tour used to the L., a. asphalt giving off crazy heat in the summer, but nothing can prepare you for your first time on the Australian courts in the summer season. Venus instantly notices the difference. As she walks onto the blistering hot court Melbourne the rubber of her sneakers seems to melt and stick to the court with each step. As, the crowd sees her enter. She's hit with a wave of loud cheers. Her Father Richard. Williams is once again not in the stands, but her mother Oracene sits in the players Fox fanning herself. Over to Santa Court now the Williams match Venus, Williams and Serena Williams. About to start their match. The match starts out close and the first set goes to a tie-break at six games all. The sisters are playing as competitively as any time. Their father let them face off against each other incompetent. He rarely turned them against each other, and this set is showing why as they exchanged groundstrokes in heated baseline rallies? They're blistering strokes. Make it obvious that they want to bury each other on each shot. They both hit the ball harder than basically. Any other woman has on this court, and they can run down each other's powerful shots more quickly than anyone else can as well. The ball is a blur going back and forth and sewer. They're white sneakers as they flash from one baseline corner to the other. The sisters are style, the like in white dresses white beads, but it's Venus. Who stands out as the faster and Calmer Williams today? Venus edges out Serena and the first set tiebreak then she breaks arena serve early in the second set to pull away for good. as Venus closes in on the victory, she looks across. The court at Serena's is for the first time since they took the court, nothing makes her happier than winning a match at a grand. Slam but nothing makes her sadder than seeing Serena lose. For a brief second. She wonders if this is worth it. If beating the entire world is worth having to also beat her sister. The match ends when Serena Nets a backhand. The crowd erupts, but Venus isn't sure how to feel. She extends a hand at the net like she would to any competitor, but then puts her arm around Serena to console her like a sister. Part only briefly to shake hands with the umpire, and then Serena reaches back for Venus and she suddenly smiling. Let's take a bow. Serena says and Venus agrees relieved. She hasn't broken her little sister's heart. Hand like Broadway Stars after a successful opening night, Venus and Serena how to the crowd as the crowd roars. Finally Miles from. Soon after Venus speaks to the media, it was weird. I guess it was weird all day. Place Arena. But. I don't know this is kind of you. Don't want it to happen this way. We're GONNA make a pact number one number two, so we only meet missiles won't care because really for the title. Venus trying to tell herself that being one in to feel better than this, but she already knows she's lying to herself. She knows that Serena will never settle for being number two. So It's a little over a year after the Williams sisters faced off at the Aussie. Open and Richard Williams is walking into a pack media room at the Lipton Championships in Miami. The early spring tournament is not officially one of the sports. Slams, but it's still prestigious, and it's often called the fifth slam tickets for the tournaments. Bigger matchups always sell out, but today is special things Richard. Venus is playing Serena for the first time this year and this time it's in the tournament finals. TV personalities and newspaper reporters alike fill the pressroom hours before the match and Richard Is, they're holding court, and giving all of the sound bites needed to hype. The Williams versus Williams final. No parent alive has built such successful professional tennis players Richard and his girls are still teenagers. have been famous siblings on tour like John McEnroe and his little brother. Patrick or Chris Evert and her little sister Jeannie, but in those families, the bigger star completely outshine the lesser life. Even as teenagers. It's already clear that Venus and Serena are both stars in their own right. The Williams Constellation which has been a fascination for sports. Fans everywhere is now writing. The tour and Richard is basking in the glow. Richard stands at a large turn in front of a variety of print, digital and TV media members almost all of whom are white. He grabs the Mike and holds on tight, and then he sounds off on a wide variety of topics including what he claims is his multimillion dollar business. He points to his hat embroidered with the logo of Williams and Williams. He says his company will start publishing cartoons. It's also a charter bus company. He adds and do some work with mortgages. Reporters then turn the conversation to the real business at hand Richards prediction for the head to head matchup between his daughters the second time they've played ever and the first time they've faced each other in a tournament final. Richard knows that Serena always has an edge to her. He knows she'll be the better tennis player eventually, and the reason is simple. Serena is just flat out meaner. One time, a friend of Richard's had gifted ceramic piggy banks to Venus Serena and there are other three sisters in the House Serena accidentally brokers. So, what did she do? She broke the other for piggybanks to. If, she couldn't have one. Nobody else could either. Richard thinks back on the story reflecting on what it means for Serena's future. He's positive show fight hard and do whatever it takes to win more trophies than Venus, and he knows she'll get there eventually. But today in their first final Richard knows. It's Venus's to win. Head to head. It's still Venus who has the clear edge. She won both of their head to head matches in nineteen, ninety eight. And now as the match is well under way down the court, Venus seems in control even with the score tight. They split the first two sets, but behind better, serving and fewer mistakes. Venus takes the third set six four to defend her title. And she improves to a perfect three zero over her little sister. We, have it. Six four in the third Venus Williams over her younger sister Serena. Gray effort by both players. It's a hug from a big sister there. What a great moment! Wow. Family yes, very much so.

Show when Jennifer Capriati when the French Open title, the rest of that year was dominated by Venus Williams. Who Won Wimbledon and the US Open beating Serena in the final? What has happened so far in two thousand and two Matt Well Jennifer kept `priority has defended her Australian Open title a tournament which Serena had to miss through injury and Venus Williams loss of the first ever to Monica salish. still whenever I see that Monica was still going strong in two thousand and two. That always kind of amazes me. Yes? Then they get on the hull courts and Serena really starts dominating. She doesn't actually she doesn't actually lose. A match competed national hard court in two thousand and two to start the season both sisters. Boycott Indian Wells for the first time following the racists incident in two thousand and one.

And, then Serena gets her first tore level where against Venus in the Miami semifinals, six two six two and then announces a South was one of the favorites full the French, open by winning Rome beating Justyna non Jennifer Cat `priority so. That definitely you know. Venus is obviously dominated the before Serena's now really becoming a force Worth I'm actually wrote that they were threatening to tiger is. I think that being in terms of what tiger woods was doing. Ingolf at that stage just become such a dominant force and they were the they were. They were the driving force in the game. They were the biggest stoves, the biggest stories getting the biggest crowds and actually align i. read his that. Talks of combining the tools though bit like we've been talking about recently with this with this merger idea, but it was very much. Kind of the pay and coaching the Women's tool to relocate Ponte Vedra where they had their head offices and. Thinking that, it made sense for the ATP. Jomo thumbs alliant. Is that boils down to this on AC- went be around for much longer, and no other male player comes close to the international stardom of the Williams sisters. Why not try to get in on the action?

"Thank you. Sunny, how are we doing on time. We're at about forty, ran William. Okay. Quicken Jonathan. You wrote about the Serena Williams fiasco and the Washington Post. Breathlessly covered this and even had an op-ed by Billie Jean King. What I was comforted by where the comments sections by a lot of people who said, look, even people who are very, they say, staunchly feminist. This is not the hill to die on because really, you can't blame anybody else for breaking your racquet thoughts Javy oh, well, I know on I want I want your thoughts on this. What do I know I anti Serena? Yes. No, no, no, no. No, you can't. You can't say, oh, well, you know, she should be allowed to sock. I know that it's really a conundrum on the one hand three. On the other hand, the Japanese player, what am I supposed to do? But no, they it's just you can't excuse that bad and it's not a first time when things don't go her way. As we all know, then she loses her temper other our players loser temper. Yeah, that's an excusable to, okay, it's bad all across the board. But once she Brooke racket, you can't go back from that. And you can't say, oh, I'm not going to penalize you appoint was at a point at that point, not a game. It was the point. That was the point was the gay. The thief, and. Okay, so go ahead JBL but I've, I'm in sunny. What are? Where are you on on all of this? You pro- Serena anti Serena, miss official. Anti official. I am. I'm pro official in the sense that he. His calls were all technically correct. I probably would have eaten the whistle on the metoo on the euro thief line to the final. The final final day I wouldn't have. I wouldn't have penalized her a game. I don't think it's, you have to penalize a report after she smashes the racket Ryan. The the euro thief is, is the sort of judgment call that I think that a professional empire has to kind of is the sort of abuse that a professional empire has to live with on this sort of thing, but, but also I think she was, I think it was totally fair to penalize her the game because like demanding an apology on the court in front of everyone in in in such a demeaning way is like, is you can't. You can't emasculate the official like that. You just can't do it question. The game penalty since I didn't see the game was in a critical game was at an answer of game break game, or was it like you know, four one, two, five one? Or what was his Jewish? I forget she going down. It was raining that she was not likely. No, actually not going to win. This was not. I believe that what the tipping point bear was was not the euro thief, but the the professional threat of you're never going to call one of my matches again. Which is essentially threatening the guys livelihood. I mean that is a that is the the the tennis version of you'll never eat lunch in this town again, am which is I think the no, which is there's a difference between saying you're a jackass, you're cursing them out all of that and then making professional threats against somebody's career man, which is which is the thing I, I don't know. I'm just anti. I, I'm weirded out by the way people rushed out to die on this hill, and I didn't really, really quick. I mean, Serena has become in a weird way her own like cost of leber. Yeah. I mean, she's she's just like it is like the Senate live beyond, say, joke where everybody has to love surreal. You can't not love Serena, and I understand why it's not permissible to hold two thoughts in your your head at the same time. The first is that she is probably the greatest women's player ever and that she has, sir. Certainly she is American tennis and has been the face and foundation of American tennis for an decade. Now all by herself, the most important figure in American Dennis, and that, but then also a, yeah..

Adams, welcome to the podcast, Lisa. Thanks for having of course before we get to the conversation. And we all think about what happened between three and Williams and Carlos Rama's. I'm gonna just give the back story. Let's get out of the way at the top for those that didn't see it or hear it on Saturday. In the second sat Rama's the chair umpire issued a code violation to Serena Williams. It's basically a warning forgetting illegal coaching because he thought her coach, Patrick Moore glue was giving her hand signals from the stands a few games after that Williams smashed her. Racket an annoyance. This was separate. It wasn't because of the accusation of coaching. She was pissed off that she lost. She lost a game in the second set. So she smashes her racket. She's given a second code violation. The penalty for a second violation is a point penalty. Williams was less upset about that penalty than about the insinuation that she and her toge had been cheating. So back to that, I filed Asian a, here's what she said to Rama's. I didn't get coaching. You need to take. You need to make an announcement that I didn't get coaching. I don't cheat. I didn't get coaching. You too. Advocating not lie. A daughter dad was ever..

"They asked if they stepped into Charlotte, of course she would, you know? So for the the French Open to say that her uniform was disrespectful. And they need to change it. You know, it does feel like a slap in the face 'cause I can't again, I know people watch it. 'cause it's iconic. I bet you. They felt insulted the whole time. You know like she how dare she, her sister always been outside of this to this very white, very elitist sport of tennis, you know, and they always let people know they still black. Yeah, always always in the, I think the thing that first-rate mean about Venus and Serena, like like them, right. Both of them girls. Is well, we'll women, but, but you know, since they've been girls for me is that I am. I, I love Serena Williams in Maine is like I love Tiger Woods only watch when they playing day plan. I ain't watching and there's just that simple to me. Yeah, but you know what, though and is not. Got out of the way I'm in the same category because Tigers a fucking cone. Yes. The is like has never say anything. I just want to say beyond even what you think and I hate to cut you out beyond even what you're saying, Serena's even higher on the level. Yes, she is. She is. But but but I said that for the fact that I know that I am not the only one that tunes into tennis when she's there, right? Your writings are higher because she's there. Then I tiger booze say with the puck, you won't say Tagliabue's is kind of winning again. So against what you motherfucking ratings went up. So in this small, so funny is that. Kind of like Tiger Woods Venus standards for women. Women get paid more to had to show her ass when she came back and was like, look bitch when people have kids and maternity leave, you can strip. They rake in like a lot of these white women who probably spitting her goddamn face. She has passed Lau to benefit them. She got everybody pay more. She gets more revenue share like she got the win more revenue share the the women's tournament get sold out before the men's tournament. At the biggest finals. You know, she's doing all this shit for a game that actually bet they don't want her there and that constantly told her that you test Tom on anybody else. You got this other bitch over here that was not insured, putt knows and doing everything she could to be her got suspended. You know, but you don't. You don't give her the vis and you didn't test terrorists much. You want and showing them on my God damn house talking about pay bit. Like for me, personally, you have got to be a special person. I vein is a Serena us special like it's almost like they were designed to deal with the racism. They were design to deal with the with with with the being called niggers. Would you go to tournament like you got to be a special parson because of told him to kiss my ass a long fucking time ago because the whole time she's been there breaking records doing all this miraculously shit. They have done nothing but disrespected her the entire time. Right? And so like like I said, I would put her even ahead of tiger. 'cause agree. You like tiger does a lot to be like, but not to black all calm down, right? Like just Weck enough, whereas conduct when not really. Okay. Guys, calm down. It's the Raina does. I mean Tigers say. Said, people need to respect Trump like two days ago. Serena would never ever would never, you know, Venus is more lay back, but Serena, I mean, in addition to, you know, like Venus definitely has some health issues and shit like that. But Serena, we all knew she was younger. And what's the past Venus at some point? And she became so dominant and so good and she still so black and so committed to our her people and everything she does is like fucking like iconic. It. You know less. I'm stepping into motherhood, like like with my fucking foot on mother who's right. Like just vicious motherhood. I'm gonna tackle this shit, you know, but being transparent and honest and vulnerable and able to talk about like complications with her pregnancy postpartum depression. You know, she's changing what it means to be the most dominant athlete in error, where we've normally seen a dominant athlete as the impervious, right?.

"Serena williams take centre court who is going for major number twenty four and i heard you you were on with freddie coleman last night you're talking about just what serena williams has accomplished and maybe how we view her not at the level that we should we appreciate serena williams like we should is it because she's females because it's tennis what your take their things because she's a woman because we look at what sees achieved and if she gets twenty four today tying the record in the open era she's already the greatest women's tennis player of all time i don't think that's a debate i think she's beyond that conversation she's one of the greatest athletes of all time serena williams is better at tennyson the brian james is a basketball she is the most dominant athlete of this era but we only talk about it in terms of women's tennis and i think part of that is we are more inclined oftentimes unfortunately to put men in that greatest conversation greatest of all time and people say no it's an individual sport we put tiger woods in his prime in that greatest of all time conversation we don't do that enough with serena and i can't understand why because to me if you give me all of the best athletes over last twenty years matt serena's number one who has been more dominant more consistent over a longer period of time than serena williams so that to me is where the conversation has to start she's on that mount rushmore of the greatest athletes of all time men or women and i think that's how to begin to view over the last twenty years you would put her number one she i would put her number one is the greatest athlete we have seen i mean think about a tiger woods is on that list for a lot of people and when tiger woods stop winning majors she continued to win majors she's coming off of just had the baby surgery she's probably seventy five percents still still the most dominant women's tennis player on the circuit so i think yeah if you told me all of the athletes of the last twenty years i don't see anyone being above serena williams on that list meyer metcalfe put serena williams last twenty years number one in terms of great athletes that we've seen above.

"I think that's the most critical aspect here he's got a window three or four years and i think that there's nobody better equipped to do that then magic johnson to do what john elway did it dimmer is to get him that one final championship or at least a chance if one final championship semi vying with bill is selling lebron heff so when championship in order to be considered truly over i think i think he does because he's lebron i think your question michael was great that they were begging people to take the money and let's say the paul george taken the money and lebron hadn't come there if paul georgia's got him into the playoffs i made the team interesting that would probably be enough for him but this lebron james this is nine nine trips to the finals there's an ex they're sick of the warriors like a lot of people and they feel like this is what lebron does now he hasn't done it in the west and this is going to be his toughest task certainly with that roster there but i think for this to really be successful move on his part he's gotta win one when there's a couple of things here somebody that is very close to the street art community i find this a horrid on a lot of levels at an artist paint over their own work to save their own dignity that pains me on a basic level as for lakers fans i gotta say i kind of understand this for two reasons here's the main reason lebron puss koby out of not just the greatest laker discussion in terms of all this other stuff but the greatest of all time discussion that a lot of people thought kobe was in with jordan on on some level until the brand came along it started dominating thing so there's a two prong realization as far as a lot of fans basketball fans in a layer concern so i get the concern but if you're the type of person that's going to desecrate art is what he put it your just a jerk that has nothing to do with basketball and is foul though back to you michael part of the issue is one of the broad came in her he's already picked the team put a bunch of oddballs around him he's going to probably coach through the pressure on him but woody i gotta ask you you can't tell me it peyton manning did not wanna championship he wouldn't be considered anything other than a nice little toy they had for a couple of years they're a car you know a real hall of fame corporate bagger so to speak you cannot tell me that he didn't have to win to be considered a bronco support i making i think i totally agree with you here that that that they worked very hard if he'd had just gotten into playoffs that set those records career records that he wouldn't be recognized here or throughout the nfl but he was able to do it twice with two with two different teams he wants super bowls lebron's already done it with two teams if he can do it with a third team nobody would've ever the greatness lebron got nothing to prove to anybody is legacy is already secure i'm just saying you can't go from begging people to choose you to say yes and then when you do see okay now you gotta prove that you deserve us year we we'll give you a year bill where was your invitation to the dinner last night pacino dicaprio you know what happened i got one question of this is easy dining with but you don't get the capital how's he gonna died wednesday go down with luke walton was he have dinner with walter that's what i wanna know let's keep it moving speaking to be better than this playboy as one thing that clapback at an established writer or tv fucking here but a seventeen year old on instagram i katie jumped into comments section and burns the kid with google sleepy dole room and don't you don't know who but instead of leaving it there he takes him to.

"An incredible effort for me as motivation for the rest of my career we often measure greatness in terms of titles and turn the tennis major titles with this run to the final regardless of what happened saturday is one of those things will remember serena four and should be added when it comes to conversations about her legacy absolute art outta soon kobe stands grilled with the brawny eight or at least put an icebox for the next four years just goes to show some people penny knows no bound so artists jonas never opted to to cover his mural on a wall fabian blue barbecue restaurant in venice with white paint wins the after this clown wit and flattered it with yellow paint really do not afford that some joker repainted we don't want you know king and three and six over them you'll never say that the mule receive a lot of positive feedback but hopeful signs a pro koby antilock rahm responses josh aren't tweeted this is sad and disrespectful la we are better than this are are you you but i sit in with us and not pay with a broad build the vast majority in la does seem excited about lebron's arrival but can lakers fans koby loyalists in particular ever truly come to love lebron on that level we as mike we are a lot better than this this was senseless and it was a horrible thing to happen to a beautiful beautiful mural but the key was in the artist has set himself was the word of the king of la that's what apparently the vandals took offence to and that is where lebron stands in his image in la right now is people will not they're so worried about colby bryant legacy out here the pm dean for many for this current generation the king of la that won't accept lebron he'll have to win a championship every great laker icon except for elgin baylor won a championship in eljay retired in the middle of a championship your and got championship bring so every laker icon has a ring on his finger that he won with the lakers with brian is going to have to win at least one championship to ever be fully accepted here and this senseless horrible thing that they did this is an indication of that before we get to what i'm not sure that's fair bill let me redirect back to you for a second i don't know this fair y'all went from begging people just accept you free agent money to make you relevant again haven't been in a playoffs in five years let alone a championship and you telling me lebron has to win a title there in order to be an agenda he has he has one year to get stuff to go yeah now they're gonna give one year and then they have another free agent opening next year for choir leonard or klay thompson someone like that that's what it's got to happen no fans here fancier will be happy for year you gotta win here to be i here you've got to win the title that's just the way it is welcome to welcome to pressure lebron this is your life what it what do you say well la's hard town we know that but those those buffoons who actually paid it over the euro that's desecrating art and that makes no sense whatsoever and they should be criminalized as a result of it in regard to lebron and his legacy he's already created a legacy i think winning titles in going dates straight finals i mean la saying oh yeah you got win voice right away well it's quite possible but i saw similar situation in peyton manning when he came to denver and actually they worked very hard john elway specifically to get him one more championship so.

"Face angelique kerber in saturday's final rematch twenty six final the mother of all twenty fifty williams said quote is crazy i don't even know how to feel i literally didn't expect to do this well in my foot tournament back in sixteen months i just feel like when i don't have anything to lose i could just play so three that kind of what i'm doing close quote clinton start off our free cease into queens three thirty six a new mom and a win away from eight wimbledon's and a record tying twenty fourth major title all right have to press this was one point serena williams is my favorite athlete of all time over there to understand that so when you get into the discussion of the greatest or not there's that but i wanna make something clear here within deb to me the most about this is the fact that she came back from that injury in the french to maintain focus on a tennis level a lot of people wanna get caught up in oshii had a baby and she's coming back women have babies and come back and do things all the time that's how history works and why we have continued to save human beings so while this is obviously large accomplishment in terms of getting through that part from tennis standpoint something i think we forget a lot about serena she has moved back to her form which is the reason why the wpa and the tour is decided to change these rules which is if you're gone for pregnancy you should not be penalized for that in the rankings i really do applaud that way she's been able to stay on top of her and get back to this final just putting a little asterisk next to clinton's disclaimer about people have babies all the time and do things she did have a difficult pregnancy she is in her mid thirties and she's way past the age most women in tennis have any kind of success serena piles up these stats there like roger federer's every time you see us that you can't believe this one's true her latest she's now won twenty straight matches at wimbledon she's had a twenty win streak before it was fourteen years ago it was from two thousand and two to two thousand four here she is doing it again this would be i think her greatest championship ever if she pulls it off saturday woodrow well just to have instead they're to those great that she's one ten semi finals in a row and they only want shiver lost was to a lady named venus i appear into semi finals but just an aside i thought it was fantastic when when the tournament started she missed her daughter alexis olympia for steps and it really bothered her but she's got her with her head around on the grass courts earlier this week and i think that's fantastic that our daughter that she missed that time for is going to actually see her mother possibly win wimbledon for the first time won't that'd be fantastic but she's just said all these records over the years she is by far the best women's player of all time the best tennis player of all time and very possibly the best athlete men's or women of all time all right what an incredible accomplishment bill would he not very possibly she wins his thing in my mind she will be the greatest athlete male or female evren clinton you're right it's been done before she would be the fourth woman to win a major four fourth mom to win a major the us open air but goodness ten months ago she gave birth ten months ago she nearly died she had two operations after giving birth she was ranked at one hundred eighty i you had to fight back from the twenty fifth this is unbelievable this is unconscionable what she's doing here i don't think there's any way you can put any kind of asterix on it or anything and she would a great standard set for a great example of working moms everywhere again i love the fact that this is a working mom getting credit for all this and i i can't even greater athlete a graphic achievement what she's doing now i just want to say quickly that serena's complications during pregnancy and childbirth there's something that affect women of color in this country a lot more than they do a lot of other places in that highlighted that so that is a great point i love you say whatever happens is just.

"It's more than a working relationship they're good friends joe a scene serena at her lowest and she has a deep understanding of why serena takes losing so personally when she loses its say it's a spiral and it can take days it can take um you know a week for her to come up for air it's a very isolating dark introspective time for her there is nobody harder on themselves than than she is and i think some of it goes to the fact that she feels like she lets people down besides playing for herself i think she feels like she plays for a lot of disenfranchised groups this is what compounds every defeat for serena williams she and her sister venus were the first female superstars of color in professional tennis is she's become one of the most widely recognized female athletes in the world so there's a weight of representation that comes with being as iconic as she is serena talked about it in a speech in 2015 she just been named sports illustrated sports person of the year and on heavy bullock down on me i've had people let me down because i didn't look like them i look stronger i've had people in past me because of the colour my skin i've had people overlook me because i was a woman i had critics say i will never win another grand slam when i was only at number seven now here i stand today twenty one grand slam titles and i'm still going you know you had to young girls coming up from compton with beads who literally were going to change the face of culture and change the face of sport they were very isolated together they can you know they came in as a family unit.

"The mcenroe sound from npr that's a controversy now because serena's objected to it and because we need content in june i'm going to just give you some facts here these are facts and again i get why it is that the oppressed white man right now in two thousand seventeen is frustrated because the oppressed white man wants to say whatever it is that he wants to say bill maher has to get lectured by ice cube hey the n word that our word now you guys can't have it anymore and the oppressed white man is like why can i have it i want words i want to these words that i wanna use them however i want the way that i've always used up now not that one not yours anymore so i get though why the white man is bothered by that i don't particularly understand why it is that a statement of fact that serena williams herself has voiced would be objectionable or sexist so i'm gonna give you some more facts on this jahic knowing your member him in two thousand three joking noah's father was forty three years old he played justine henin in a friendly match at the forest national in brussels you imagine this happening today noah donned a dress for much of the match he played predominantly trick shots and the ended up winning four six six four seven six can you imagine this happening today because i can imagine mcenroe doing this playing and address against serena williams and is super that's actually said during the break because you know june i wanna watch conor mcgregor and floyd mayweather play tennis it's actually something that's got said during the break i buy it.
