Jackie, Serena's beloved old white dog, curls up in her tennis bag and goes to sleep.Serena changes from the Green Day shirt – she doesn't want to get it sweaty – and slips on an Incredible Hulk T-shirt festooned with six-pack abs.
He says nothing but carries a bag full of racquets.Serena was beaten by the beautiful and – for sports writers – conveniently black Sloane Stephens, leading tennis commentators to call her the "New Serena." Stephens proceeded to lose seven of her next 10 matches and earned Serena's annoyance when the press suggested that Stephens regarded Serena as a mentor.Stephens objected, saying no way in hell was Serena her mentor and questioned whether Serena had dissed her on Twitter, proving the tennis tour is much like Mean Girls with prize money. Get back to me when Le Bron beats Kevin Durant's Oklahoma City Thunder every time for nine years. Sharapova is tall, white and blond, and, because of that, makes more money in endorsements than Serena, who is black, beautiful and built like one of those monster trucks that crushes Volkswagens at sports arenas. The chasm between Serena and the rest of women's tennis is as vast and broad as the space between Ryan Lochte's ears.
