Earlier Wednesday, we analyzed Serena Williams' post-loss press conference and came to the conclusion that it was anything but dignified, despite such proclamations from respected members of the tennis media.

Serena is 29 years old and unlikely to change her habit of ignoring the play of her opponents while talking about her losses. But if she wants to become noble in defeat, she won't have to look far for a role model.

Here's what her sister Venus had to say after her straight-set loss to Agnieszka Radwanska, according to Sports Illustrated's Jon Wertheim: "When I lose a match ... It's just important to give credit to the people who won. And I didn't win."

Disagree with me about Serena all you'd like, but we all know true dignity when we see it.
