Second Serve


It's nice to see two of the game's top players being friendly.  Earlier today, Serena and Caroline exchanged an interesting set of tweets to each other:

In a game that is highly competitive, it's nice to see such closness among players.  Serena, though ruthless and punishing on the court, shows her willingness to be close to her fellow players, unlike Sharapova who has been open about not wanting to make friends on tour:

"It's tough to have really good friends on the tour...I find it difficult to be having dinner with someone one night and then having to play them two days later because it is at the end of the day an individual sport and we are all very competitive. It's typical in sport to try to beat each other. You know we are not on a team and as far as really close friends goes, I have my family who come with me on the road. I don't hang around in the locker room—it's my least favorite place in the world. I do my job at the site, I play matches do what I have to do and live my world away from the site and don't talk tennis all day. It's not in my best interests."

Apparently Maria doesn't have time to make friends, she needs time to focus on tennis. Serena has 13 slams. Sharapova has only 3. Just saying.
