So glad I was not able to watch the tennis match today. Serena's lost would have devasted me. She is still the greatest female player.

Some, however, believe that the standard for Williams was simply too high.
I've realized that Serena is like Beyoncé. She's the standard. People are literally waiting for her to fail.

Despite her recent loss, many are still standing behind Williams, confident that this performance means nothing for her future endeavors.
Yall sleeping on Serena William's loss but yall wait until next year. The Olympics. She'll win all 4 majors and an Olympic gold. #GoldenSlam

Serena is the best female athlete of our generation. Win or lose. No one can debate me on this.
