Well, I do not know if spoiler is really needed.
Serena withdrew with shoulder injury, complaining about balls.

Does anybody have a clue which balls is she using?

I believe that she complained about Tretorn balls. It's funny, when I read the Yahoo news article earlier it mentioned this, but now I can't find it anywhere. I wonder if they changed the article text.

it is interesting to note the score when she quit:

Serena Williams (news) quit her Dubai Open semi-final with an arm injury Friday while trailing Serbia's Jelena Jankovic (news) 6-0, 4-3.

Has Serena ever lost? Or does she just WD when it's inevitable?

Serena doesnt possess the ability to be humble, never has and never will. Her oversized ego just doesnt allow for any thoughts that her opponents could actually play better than her. When all else fails, "I feel an injury coming on"............

Sharapova said the same thing at that Philadelphia tournament the week before the Year End Championships last year, and pulled out of a semifinal I think it was citing the heavy Trethorns.
I think Serena is just *borrowing* her excuse. As far as Serena actually losing, I don't think that's ever happened. Not in her mind. Think she woulda quit if it was the US Open? Nah. She got her appearance money, got some points and she's gone. Time to get prepared for Key Biscayne now. She won't play in that Pacific Life event. Not after the alleged "late withdrawal" of a few years ago. I bet Charlie Pasarell is still steaming over that.

Whenever she loses it is either I did not play well, or I am injuried, this time it was the balls! Someone needs to give her some cheese to go with that Whine!

Lets face it, she can't play 10 tournamnets a year like most on the tour, always injuried.

She looked like that court was the last place on earth she wanted to be. She just did not know it was her b-day and JJ was giving out those 24 licks

The Tretorn balls and the WTA

funny thing, I don't remember seeing Tretorn balls lately in shops around Montreal, perhaps they are familiar in other places.

Serena might have a point in that testing balls in match situations is different from testing them in less strainful situations. still the played all the matches until the final, didn't complain until then.

Jankovic did say that she noticed Serena had a problem because she was serving uncharacteristically weak. Jelena also said she was disappointed that they couldn't have a real competitive match. She knew she was dominating because Williams was injured.

Williams gets injured when ever she is losing and if she wins its because she is a comptitor, if she loses its because she was injured.

Well, she played quite well today in the final.

the fans that follow her are so stupid they actually buy it.

she acts like a little kid, she needs to realize an excuse is an excuse, it doesnt change anything, just her own twisted perception of what happend.
