Has she REALLY changed? Most recent interviews with Serena, before and after matches, has her saying that her near-death health issues have “given her a new perspective” on life and tennis. But is it real or is it hype?
According to a cynic tennis friend of mine, her words are all hollow and orchestrated by her PR handlers to take advantage of this opportunity to improve her image (read: endorsements).
But since I have had my own trip to the edge of the health cliff and come away feeling even more thankful for life and all that comes with it, I cut her more slack.
Serena has been quoted as saying, “If tennis has missed us half as much as we’ve missed tennis, we’re in a good place. This is a comeback that’s totally different from any other comeback.”
