Serena has a right to be disgusted with the umpires. That doesn't excuse her tirades, she deserved to get trashed for those, but she was obviously not in control over her emotions, and if she couldn't get past previous issues against her that's her fault. She seems to be in a better place now, and is playing with calm.
Serena never said she was Sloan's mentor, in fact she contradicted that. Serena also rose above all of Sloan's drama by ignoring it. Serena has matured.
Quite frankly, Serena's BFF has always been her sister, and they stayed together during times they were competing. I'm not sure how many other top players could handle playing a sibling.
