Great Athlete, Gracious Competitor

When Serena Williams lost at the U.S. Open last year, many in the press had a field day portraying her as a sore loser who blamed the officials for her loss. Actually, it turns out that Serena is one of the most gracious competitors in both victory and defeat. Here's a note that she wrote to Naomi Osaka:

“Hey, Naomi! It’s Serena Williams. As I said on the court, I am so proud of you and I am truly sorry. I thought I was doing the right thing in sticking up for myself. But I had no idea the media would pit us against each other. I would love the chance to live that moment over again. I am, was, and will always be happy for you and supportive of you. I would never, ever want the light to shine away from another female, specifically another black female athlete. I can’t wait for your future, and believe me I will always be watching as a big fan! I wish you only success today and in the future. Once again, I am so proud of you. All my love and your fan, Serena.”
