I read on Tripso, today:
Is economy class punishment?
Serena Williams is threatening herself with a 16-hour flight in coach class if she is eliminated from the Australian Open. “I was thinking ‘Okay, if you lose, you’re going to fly coach all the way back to Florida,” she said when asked what she was thinking while she played against her last opponent. “How uncomfortable that would be? That motivated me to do a little better.”
We don’t need Williams to tell us coach class is one of the most exquisite forms of torture known to mankind. But having her experience it firsthand? Priceless!
Torture indeed, in my case it unfortunately applies whether I win or lose!
