She always has. She's a generational talent and is as good as anyone who has ever played professionally. She's also a terrible person (I've seen her berate people at the WTA event in Toronto, calling a female volunteer a "useless c**t" and telling her "I will ruin your life") who benefits from a fawning press and VERY good PR. Then again, her father belongs in the Hall of Fame of Bad Tennis Parents (which is saying something) so as they say, the apple don't fall far from the tree. Again, Hall of Fame talent, out of this world skill and fitness, but treats people like garbage (and if you don't go along, she will threaten and verbally abuse you). She's not the first, and unfortunately won't be the last.
