Rising Above Emotions: Was Serena Williams Robbed? Wrong? or Both? You tell me!

by Jesse Muhammad

I must confess, I do not follow sports as closely as I did in high school and college. One example being my friend, who is a huge Saints fan, had a big team button on the lapel of his suit yesterday. That's how I found out football season started! LOL

Well along with football beginning, looks like the talk of the sports world is Serena Williams. Hold up...before I disappoint you.

I am not an expert on tennis. Matter of fact I have yet to ever play the game in my life. Yes, true. And the only time I have ever watched tennis is when Serena and Venus are playing.

By now you must be asking, 'well why are you blogging about it Brother Jesse?'(smile)

Well, the day before Serena Williams' U.S. Open semifinal match against Kim Clijsters, I was just blowing up my Twitter account letting people know they should read Serena Williams' Exclusive Blog for GlobalGrind.com. It's very inspirational and it moved me to go purchase her new book, "On The Line", the next day.

In the blog she said "How to stay positive, how to pull through. Because in the end, there is a light that always gets brighter- you just have to keep reaching for it.".....and now she was tested the next day.

In regards to the recent U.S. Open incident she said in part “Last night everyone could truly see the passion I have for my job. Now that I have had time to gain my composure, I can see that while I don’t agree with the unfair line call, in the heat of battle I let my passion and emotion get the better of me and as a result handled the situation poorly.”

...so all of the tennis experts and analysts please let Brother Jesse Blog know if she was robbed? Was she wrong in any way?
