Did Tennis Star Serena Williams Write the Viral ‘I’m Sick of COVID-19’ Post?

Published

Tennis star Serena Williams posted a message on social media that began, “I’m sick of COVID-19. I’m sick of black vs. white. I’m sick of Republicans vs. Democrats.”

In June 2020, a message supposedly written by tennis star Serena Williams about how she was sick of COVID-19, black versus white, and Republicans versus Democrats went viral on social media:

NBA player Rudy Gobert also shared this post as if it was penned by the famous tennis player with a record-breaking 23 Grand Slam singles titles, and even tagged her in his post.

The above-displayed message was definitely posted by a person named Serena Williams, but not the famous tennis player. The Facebook user who posted the message wrote on her bio: “Nope, not THAT Serena Williams 💍 Justin’s wifey & Bentley’s mommy 🐕”

Although not-tennis-Serena posted this message to her Facebook page on June 14, she is not the original author of this post. It appears that this message first started circulating on June 2 when it was shared (and presumably written) by Facebook user Gina Torres:

Gina

In short, the viral message was written by a Facebook user named “Gina” at the start of June 2020. The message went viral a few weeks later when a woman named “Serena Williams” shared this message and internet users mistook it for a post from the famous tennis star.

There were allegations of a connection between Nadal and Eufemiano Fuentes, the doctor who was ultimately jailed for his part in a Spanish cycle doping scandal.

No evidence has ever been produced linking Fuentes to Nadal, though, who has always very successfully denied any rumours to the contrary.

However, Simon believes the rumours only existed to discredit opinions that Nadal could actually be a better tennis players than Federer rather than just a better athlete.

“It is difficult to conceive [for some] that, in terms of game, Rafael Nadal could be better than Roger Federer,” Gilles Simon wrote in his new autobiography This Sport That Makes You Crazy

“We even spread rumours of doping on his account.

“Nadal does not fit into the framework. Moreover, I emphasize here that we never talk about the physique of Federer, who has little to envy that of Nadal.

“That he went five sets at 35 like what he did in Australia in 2017, it’s extraordinary. But no one noted this point.”
