Or to quote ESPN accurately, “Should Serena Williams still be ranked No. 1 in women's tennis?” This is a current and still active poll question on its website. As of this writing, 26,947 people have replied, with 61% voting ‘Yes’ and 39% voting ‘No’.
I would give anything to be able to have a meaningful, non hate-filled conversation with the members of that 39% group. I would ask them, respectfully, what exactly went into their vote? What led to their desire to skew the results it in a particular direction?
Was it Serena’s loss to Cornet in Dubai? Do the members of the 39% truly believe that the #1 player should never lose any matches? In that case, should Nadal have retired after losing that glorious match to Wawrinka at the Australian Open?
