Serena Williams won the 2015 Wimbledon Ladies singles
championship by defeating Garbine Muguraza 6-4, 6-4 on
Saturday June 11. This championship was the 21st Grand
Slam championship of her illustrious career.
"At the 2009 U.S. Open, she allegedly threatened a line judge after a ruling
went against her and was disqualified. What she actually said has been
disputed, but the judge held that her life had been threatened. That brought
local church elders to Serena Williams for what Sullivan described as a
That would be a judicial committee. If she wasn't a famous person, she would
have been kicked to the curb. The JWs do want to have bragging rights to the
half dozen or so famous personalities that are trapped in their cult.
"In 2003, Yetunde Price, her oldest half-sister, was killed in a shooting.
Serena Williams was the first one to get the news. Her tennis suffered. She took
time off, reportedly attending Witness meetings and Bible studies up to three
times a week."
Wow! Up to three times a week! It took the death of her half-sister for her to
attend the required meetings? What a devout JW.
"...scandals involving her skin-showing tennis attire and nude magazine
NUDE photos in magazines? WAHOOO!
"'I know that when she stumbles or she gets criticized or she curses on the
court, she has called herself on that,' DelleMonache said.
She curses on the court? What a wonderful Witness.
"She jokes with and chastises her hitting partner, Sascha Bajin; engages in pole
dancing aerobics; and jumps onto the court in a downpour and dances around like
a giddy child."
Pole dancing aerobics? Hmmmm.
"A pre-teen Serena tells one questioner that the player she'd most like to be is
the volatile John McEnroe."
"'I would have loved to film them going to church to see a bit more of what
their religion means to them and how it has shaped them,' Baird wrote of the
sisters, who are Jehovah's witnesses. 'They did not seem comfortable with
letting us into this side of their lives which we had to respect.'"
WHAT! They were JWs! WTF!
"Serena tells the filmmakers that she prefers black men to white men and she
discusses her stance on boycotting Indian Wells since 2001 after what the family
believes was a racially tinged reaction from fans."
Boycotting? Why not rely on Jehovah?
