BASN’S CENTRE COURT WITH MICHAEL – LOUIS INGRAM, PART II
Sister Act III – Wotta Habit!
By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor – in – Chief
FLUSHING, NY (BASN) So after the throw down at Centre Court, the Goddess prevailed, but tennis was victorious…
That ”you’re welcome!” you heard in the background came from one Richard Williams.
It may not have been said loudly enough, but the point is made. After the 6-2, 1-6, 6-3 scores were left to marinate, the legacy nonsense was brought up, as expected – Serena Williams could lose her next match and not make the quarters of every major for the rest of her life and it wouldn’t change a fuckin’ thing – Serena “The Huntress” Williams is the greatest female champ – of all time (and if this statement gets someone’s GOAT, too fuckin’ baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaddd!)
Then John McEnroe begins to grudgingly – like he’s doing everyone a muthafuckin’ favor – say that Richard Williams might have done something good with the sisters. I say again – who gives a FUCK what McEnroe says!!! I don’t wanna hear any bullshit about whether he could beat Serena at age 56 – this is Her Time – shut the FUCK up on all the ancillary nonsense – and call the fucking match!
When Richard Williams declared to the world that he was comin’ Straight Outta Compton with the most dominant combination in women’s tennis, of course they weren’t going to take him seriously. What’s this Nigger know about tennis? How dare this arrogant so and so say such things? He’s not one of us!
So it took 28 individual Grand Slam victories, at least a dozen doubles titles (where on at least four occasions they beat the #1 ranked women’s team at that moment) for a grunting acknowledgement…
Any country (with any sense) could have stepped to Mr. Williams and said, “we want YOU – to do for our girls as you have done for yours.” Simple, right?
But then all those Nick Bollettieri Academy clones wouldn’t be included in that mix, would they? No one among the so-called tennis establishment could not take credit for the bulk of work done by Venus and Serena – and keepin’ it 100 – if Richard Williams were white and arrogant, he would be embraced by tennis rather than been seen as a boil on the collective buttocks of the sport.
Put that on your strawberries and cream, muthafuckas!
But I digress. There is no “Countdown to Greatness” – in my humble; The Huntress is already great – and as more potential Grand Slam titles may fall like dominoes, the connection is clear.
Serena may not be as brash as her father, but the resentment toward her achievement is the same. While it may seem she has an easier path after defeating the person she calls “my greatest opponent” rest assured the mainstream muckrakers Lay in the Cut like buzzards waitin’ for something to die.
I would contend Serena got more negative airplay after that silly bitch -azz umpire implied she “threatened her” a couple majors ago than she got positive with her first “Serena Slam.”
It makes me wanna holler
“What’s this whole world comin’ to – things just ain’t the same…
Any time – The Huntress – gets in dat ‘Ashe’ again!
Ohhh yeahhhhhh….Ohhhhhhh yeeaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
(apologies to the Marvelettes)
Always outnumbered…never outgunned.
