Twitterdom Tears Down Article That Compared Pregnant First-Round Wimbledon Loser to 23-Time Grand Slam Winner Serena

Many said Mandy Minella, with her husband on the left, shouldn’t be compared to Serena Williams (@mandyminella Twitter/@serenawilliams Instagram)

An article linking pregnant tennis player Many Minella to expectant Grand Slam winner Serena Williams backfired, primarily because the former lost her first-round match at Wimbledon.

During the early stages of her pregnancy in January, Williams famously won the Australian Open and earned her 23rd Grand Slam singles title. Tennis.com’s Baseline ran an article Tuesday, July 4, saying Luxembourg native Minella, who is four months pregnant, “pulled a Serena” during the first round, where the world No. 82 fell to 37-year-old and No. 72-ranked Italian Francesca Schiavone, 6-1, 6-1. Comparatively, Williams beat her sister Venus 6-4, 6-4 in the final at Australia.

The failed comparison immediately got Twitter users talking.

 

Despite having the best possible reason to be doing so, Williams seemed to be missing Wimbledon as she showed off her drills on Instagram Monday, July 3.

Wimbledon got me like: Easy standing drills this morning. Go easy.
