Serena Williams might very well be engaging in some retail therapy in these pictures over her recent heartbreak. The statuesque international tennis star recently posted an extended blog post about how she was dumped by a mystery boyfriend. She doesn’t name the man with whom she says she grew close over the course of months, but describes in detail the progression of their emotional intimacy. In the post, Serena described how he subsequently and very abruptly ended the relationship. As Serena tells it, “And then it happens. Not the ‘L’ word. But what you have been most afraid of. What deep in your heart you have been afraid to confront. What you always suspected would happen one day sooner or later. HE STOPS CALLING.” Oh lord, this is what happens when too much wine and Internet access is provided to a woman who’s just been dumped. I do feel for Serena, but maybe quietly moving him out her top 8 would have been the wiser, more subtle choice.
