Random thoughts on the coverage of Black women in professional sports…
I knew when I interviewed Serena for Ebony Magazine’s July cover that Serena was destined to do big things during this summer’s Grand Slam season.
While it didn’t go off exactly as she planned, winning the French Open and Wimbledon, she did beat Jelena Jankovic for the U.S. Open title and the world’s No. 1 ranking. This is her 3rd U.S. Open Title, the last one being in 2002.
Can I get a “you go girl!”
It was an exhilarating match from beginning to end, with me screaming the entire time at my television!
I also appreciated Serena thanking Jehovah.
I am so damn proud of Serena (and Venus) for continuing to represent us Black girls in a game that some think that we don’t belong.
Serena Williams, you are No. 1. You earned it and you and your sister are both an inspiration to people like me—and girls and women all around the world.
Black girls rule!!!!!!!!!!!!
(And I know it’s just killing them folks that Serena won, lol!!! Singing, “you might win some, but you just lost one!”)
Serena Williams won the U.S. Open semifinal match 6-3, 6-2 against Dinara Safina today and is on track to get back to the U.S. Open title match for the first time since 2002.
Serena will seek her third U.S. Open championship and ninth Grand Slam title overall in the final against Jelena Jankovic, who beat Olympic gold medalist Elena Dementieva 6-4, 6-4.
The final is scheduled for Saturday night, but forecasts calling for rain much of the day prompted tournament organizers to announce contingency plans that could include postponing the match until Sunday.
