Pete Bodo thinks Serena's losing because she eats too many cheeseburgers. And yes, I was horribly uncomfortable reading that piece. It comes out of nowhere to me because I think Serena looks WAY thinner this year than in years past. If you want to talk about fitness, then fine. I actually do think Serena needs to work on her fitness so that she can grind out these three set clay matches. But I'm not sure I'd ever call her fat. Much to the sadness of many boys, not everyone can be Iveta or Gisela.
Also, I love how the 80% of the post is about Serena's weight affecting her game, but for whatever reason he has to come out of the gate WTA bashing about how no one wants it enough. These two subjects have something to do with each other how? Thankfully his ESPN piece was edited.
Seriously. I would have thought that at this point Pete got it all out of his system. Can't wait for the backhanded congratulations for Dina on Monday, if he even bothers to give her a congrats at all.
