I'm sure her PR people told her to "play nice" during her down time banking on people's short memories. But you have to know that the excessively aggressive, mean spirited attitude is barely under wraps till next time. May she worship herself, all her trophies, and her outlandish clothing. You have to be just as rude to miss her.

I guess all of us were just as "rude" when McEnroe took a break in his career and came back, right?

You DO understand that many past (and present) greats have suffered through on-court outbursts. Serena Williams was not the first, the last, or the only, tennis player to do so. The list of well-known tennis players to suffer on-court meltdowns is long and includes: Ilie Nastase, Jimmy Connors, John McEnroe, and Lleyton Hewitt. Even Roger Federer was cursing at the umpire in the '09 US Open.

It happens. Get a grip and deal with it.

Women tennis without Serena means nothing, zero, love.

Martina Navratilova can attest to that.
