Fresh off of her win, Serena Williams went with a soft look for the event. The dress had jewels embellished across the front and the 33-year-old champion wore her hair loose and straight for the glamorous occasion.

      Pray tell kindly list these “manly” features. Don’t be afraid this seems like me giving you rope to hang yourself, it is.

      Manly features? Since when were muscles attributed to only men. You missed her triple DD boobs, big butt and focus entirely on her arms and say manly features. My word!

    10/10 I approve of her winning ways.

    I look forward to tackling all the Mumus that will come complain about her:

    A. Dominating a “culturally appropriated” sport.

    B. Her “culturally appropriated” hair.

    C. Her “culturally appropriated” Dress.

    I’ve come to the simple conclusion that only unsuccessful people care about “cultural appropriation”, I apologise for even bringing such a stupid topic to a page about winners! but it had to be done, can we be sensible to let the topic die now?

      I really do not think you understand the concept of cultural appropriation. Weave is indigenous to Africa, just read up on ancient Egypt. It was adopted by many in Europe by the elite to appear and distinct themselves from the “commoners”. So you missed me on that. If you are referring to the straightness of hair, there is an underlying assumption that ALL white people have straight hair, NOT TRUE. Also, that ALL black people have curly/kinky hair, again NOT TRUE.

      As for the sport, it is not indigenous to Europe. Please trace the history of tennis before you spout nonsense.

      The young lady who addressed Kylie Jenner was right in doing so. The problem is not about wearing cornrows or caine rows the problem is appropriating from a culture in which you are not trying anything to elevate. Kylie embodies blackness yet disembodies it by not actively trying to campaign for the causes that affect blackness. Of course it is her business whatever she chooses to do. But the lips, the butt, the boyfriend, the love of hip hop, etc, are derivative of blackness in America. Yet, the killings of black bodies, the bodies that produce the “coolness” in which she embraces and appreciates, are ignored. So I get where Amanda is coming from. But Amanda should know that it is none of her business what Kylie does with her time.

      My problem in Nigeria is that we make flippant comments without constructive critical analysis. Read up on a term, understand, know why it is used, before you come here and spout nonsense. Bleaching is not cultural appropriation just as tanning is not. Wearing weave is not cultural appropriation just as Europeans piercing their ears is not. I can go on and on.

      Cultural appropriation is different from cultural appreciation. To appropriate one’s culture is to adopt and profit from a culture of which you are not a part of or you are not sympathetic or empathetic of.

      Can we all leave Kylie well alone? How many lives did any one of ya all touch at 17 except ask for pocket money? Pls. Enough of the hypocrisy.

      Perhaps you may want to trace the history of tennis before asking someone else to. It was founded (at least the sport as we know it) in France and was more popularly adopted by the French and British. Today, there are more Europeans (ranked among the top 100) than any other continent. So what is your point?

      Tennis was invented in France, so you’re clearly reading the wrong things.

    gurl, show those muscular hands off. they are the reason ur a living legend today.

    anybody that doesn’t like her muscular hands should eat shit. when Serena is in her 60’s her body will still be fit and firm with zero or little skin sagging

      First comment of yours I have liked in a while. It’s shameful how instead of celebrating a well deserved victory, small minded individuals choose to body-shame her. Y’all should keep on hating while she goes on to break all records in women’s tennis. You, go girl!

    Great African American Lady of Tennis of all time. I can’t wait for her to beat Stefi Graf record of 22 Grand Slam titles. One to go girl and from there you go on to set your own all time record. Make it at least 25 before you retire. It will take another 200 years and beyond to beat your Grand Slam record.
