The American Media are coming down hard on Serena Williams for her behavior during a press conference following her loss to Justine Henin during the US Open yesterday:

In the New York Times, under the headline, “Williams needs a lesson in etiquette”, Selena Roberts wrote: “Who’s classless now? “The grumpy, borderline nasty disposition that Williams displayed after her loss was a little jarring considering she had her own lack of preparation to blame for giving in so easily to Henin.

“Serena was bitter, angry and upset. She directed some of that at Henin. Who could use charm school now?”

In an interview with USA Network, which hosts television coverage of the U.S. Open, John Wertheim, the senior writer for Sports Illustrated magazine, described Serena’s reaction as “stunning”.”There’s a lot to admire about Serena but this happens again and again where we just have these completely graceless post-match (news conferences).

Maybe it was the $15,000 worth of diamonds dripping from her neck and ears that made her a tad sluggish in the match. I guess being iced out for the tennis match is more important than winning the US Open these days for Serena.
