    Serena Williams comes close to praising a teen-aged rising star. Calls her a good pusher.

    -----
    “I think my opponent played well and was able to do a really good job,” she said.

    “She's a good player. She run fast and she gets a lot of balls back. That's always a plus to have in your career.”

    -----

    Does not refer her by name, I thought that "my opponent" thing was only for political debates controlled by political analysts.

    She does run fast and get a lot of balls back.

    Who ? Did you see the post match conf where she was only talking about her back orsomethign and how she could not get any rotation and she's so relieved it's over. She did not know how much longer she could carry on ...

    Anyway, as a Serena fan, I;m sad to see her out early, wanted her to win the whole thing. Hope Sloane reaches the final. Nice girl.

    Now we have to get Brad Gilbert to use this nickname. You should tweet it to him.

    compared to Serena, EVERY other female player is a pusher.

    Serena could play offensive line for the Crimson Tide. There's no other female , in the WTA, with half her strength. She's freakish.

    Translation, someone handled my power so I had to play really long points and didn't like it. Excuses excuses, give credit to your opponent for not playing typical basher ball. Most of these women hit themselves off the court against Serena and don't defend nearly as well so it becomes error fest when they play her.
