Reuters have reported that: Serena Williams beat Andy Roddick in a one-set contest when they were training together as children in Florida. While both agree that Serena won, they disagree over the actual score (Serena says 6-1, Roddick says 6-4)
Although Roddick has demanded a rematch, Serena says she is too busy!
“A day earlier, Roddick joined in the verbal sparring by claiming Williams only beat him because she was a year older and much bigger than he was at the time. When we were ten, I had to literally run around in the shower to get wet,” he said. “She was bench pressing dump trucks already at that time.”
So girls and boys can play nicely together. It just seems a pity that the rules of a number of some sports suddenly change at 12yrs old and we go to single-sex / team events.
