This is disappointing.  Serena Williams is the greatest of all-time in her field. Few others have ever been as good as her over such a long period of time.  And not just in tennis, but pretty much any sport...  comparables might be Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Niklas Lidstrom, Tom Brady... pretty much the elite of the elite.  And I am not usually into chocolate, but she is pretty much a goddess.  Finding out that she is into off-the-wall crap feels about the same as finding out that Tom Cruise is a wack-job hard-core Scientologist.   I still like Tom Cruise movies... but knowing that about him just erodes my appreciation of him. And same with Serena.  So disappointing.

Extreme example: Ted Nugent.  I still love "Stranglehold", but can't consider myself a Ted Nugent fan knowing that he's a total retard in real life.  I don't consider Serena or Cruise to be in the same category as Nugent, but just knowing that they're into cult **** takes the shine off of their extraordinary careers for me.


So would you be the same level of dissapointed in Roger Federer if you knew he was a devout Catholic?
