    Agree - with regards to grief being complicated. Since her Dad was part of her team as a professional tennis player, obviously those associations are going to trigger grief. Years after my father died, I can hear a particular song that reminds me of him on the radio and start crying. Sometimes things just hit you at different times.

It was odd. Could she just be putting on a brave face in public? Sure. But from the partying pictures, the vacation pics, and the holiday pics and her just having fun since her dad passed, she is not giving off that a question about how she's handling things would lead her to break down in tears.

    Good point. And surely her publicists and the WTA prepared her to address this with some sort of “I would really rather not talk about that right now” - even pre-emptively. Her reaction might have had a lot to do with the tough match loss. I thought the question - if I heard the whole question - was asked pretty gently.

    I don't disagree that grief is complicated. But I also don't think asking one question given what she has been putting out there is so out of bounds that this journalist's head needs to be called for. And I mean people are gathering up the pitchforks. If she had even once seemed like she was struggling more, I think it would have been a bigger hint that just one question 5 months later, one that doesn't even directly mention her dad, would cause her to break down in tears.

    I don't ever remember people being this up in arms about asking a question about the death of a loved one. And I agree that the question was asked gently.
