A predominant complaint hanging over women’s tennis these days has to do with a dominant force.

We believe her name has been mentioned once or a million times before.

Serena Williams, as the argument goes, is simply too good for the sport’s own good.

Sixteen Grand Slam titles.

Fifty-four WTA crowns.

One Olympic singles gold and counting.

Zero chance of losing these days, it seems.

The current best women’s player on earth does occasionally come unglued, as witnessed in her fourth-round loss to Sabine Lisicki at Wimbledon last month. But generally speaking, she wins the tournaments she decides to enter, just as she did on Sunday at the Rogers Cup in Toronto, capturing her third crown in Canada.

An airplane roared overhead the Rexall Centre. Moments later, Williams served out the match against her helpless opponent, grabbed her latest winnings — $426,000, thank you very much, Canada! — and jetted off, ready to tackle Cincinnati.
