    Serena Williams complains about food rules imposed at Wimbledon
    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS – 12 hours ago

    LONDON — Wimbledon is awash with food stalls and restaurants, but you can't bring those tasty treats into the players' locker rooms, and that has Serena Williams angry.

    "I totally dislike rules that do NOT make sense," the two-time champion wrote Tuesday in a posting on her blog.

    Williams said she was told of the rule on the tournament's opening day Monday, when she was eating before her first-round victory.

    "Wow, really I thought to myself as I continued eating & of course the lady reminded me of the new rule. Again, I was in shock," Williams wrote.

    Williams noted that fruit and health bars are offered to players in the locker room. What she didn't realize was that there is a ban on food brought from outside.

    "Why have food in a room if we aren't allowed to eat in the locker room. This rule is unfair," she wrote. "I do not agree with this rule. Like, do they really expect me or any other player to actually walk outside all the way to the player's lounge. That is time not spent well & I value my time."

    Johnny Perkins, a spokesman for the All England Club, said the rule barring players from bringing food into the locker rooms has been in force for nearly a decade and is designed to keep the players' locker rooms clean.

    She seems to be quite clever and successful to solve this problem.

    I'd like to see her munching on some beef jerkies and following it with a sixpack Bud on changeovers.

    I (and Wimbledon I bet) don't care what Serena thinks. If she does not like the rule, pull out and don't play. Wimby sets their own rules and is free to do so.

    Actually she probably can do that in Wimbledon as long as she isn't facing Venus.

    Serena can eat a buffet between all her matches if she chose and still kick around 95% of the current sad lot WTA tour.

    Thats a dumb rule she should be able to eat whatever she wants. What do you expect its at wimbledon with all the rules and customs that players have to follow.

    Even if she was drunk, before the match Venus would tell her that she would make her look good by choking on set points/match points.

    Could you even imagine the speech once she wins the trophy while being drunk?

    For the first time ever, an incohorent drunk cow won Wimbledon :)
