Serena Williams told the media that, despite being passed by Russia's Dinara Safina, she's still the best player in the world. "We all know who the real No. 1 is," Serena Williams said at a press conference. "Quite frankly, I'm the best in the world." I'm a big fan of the Williams sisters because I admire their dominance on the court (when they play). But this is a little classless: You just don't steal someone's thunder like that off the court, you take care of business on the court and get the No. 1 ranking back. She'd better win the Italian Open now!
Now, of course, Serena's right. She is the best player in the world. Her ranking suffers because she plays so few tournaments. But still, she needs to let people like me say that and leave her talking for the court.
