    I often go on Yahoo and look at the photo gallery for tennis. I scrolled through the first few pages and there must at least 10 pics of Serena with her mouth wide open screaming and not one of her actually hitting a ball. I mean, I can see one or two of the "emotional" pics being put up but I just found it odd that they put so many like that up.

    tennis.com has put up a similar photo and called her a drama queen.

    I suppose everyone will now come out and try to prove that this is how all players are photographed and captioned.

    And they word the story "Serena wastes 8 match points, then wins". Really trying to make her look bad. Why not say Serena survives 8 mp or something giving more credit to her opponent. And yes, those pics are quite bad. Funny how there's never pics like this of Sharapova or Ivanovic. Guess it plays into that hottie thing.

    The way she's playing, she may not survive very long though...

    By "strange" do you mean "ugly"? Cause she indeed is ugly!

    When Serena first made her mark, I used to think all the ugly pictures were evidence of some photographic conspiracy against her. The pictures of her back then fell more or less into three categories: photos of her howling, pictures of her fighting her boobs to come around on the backhand, or photos of her lunging for a shot. Most of the photos were cropped at the waist.

    Today, the pictures of her still fall mostly into those three categories. But, today, I just think that the photographers, hard as they might, can't take a pretty picture of her. There simply isn't much that is pretty or graceful about her game. In fact, all of these years, I think they've been doing her a favor by cropping most of her pictures above the waist.
