10. 'Gotten in shape'? From the time she was 8 years old, trainers and coaches and pros were calling

her 'athletic'. What kind of 'shape' are you hoping for from the top athlete in the world?

Not committed? Hmmmm you MIGHT want to have a look at her statistics page. She average 81% wins since 1999. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serena_Williams_career_statistics

Since 1999 she's won 94 out of 116 finals. Then factor in the 10 - 15 sets X 4 that it takes to get to those finals. That's thousands and thousands of matches since 1999.

She is in the best physical condition of pretty much any athlete on the planet. She practices yoga and gymnastics, in addition to weight and flexibility and stretch training, every. Single. Day. She has as much flexibility as a ballet dancer or world class gymnast, but the strength to play for 2 hours while barely breaking a sweat and breathing hard, while her opponents are wilting in the sun after 30 minutes.

She is the simply the greatest athlete at the top of her game in the world today. I can't even imagine what you can possibly criticize!
