Has anyone actually watched the match....

yet? I want to know how they played. Was it winner after winner or Error after Errorr or a mixture?

I want to know if I should actually watch the match.

I think you should watch it, Rocketta. That way you can form your own opinion.

Once I know a score unless a match is extraordinary I'm not interested in watching it and that is regardless of who wins. Which is why I asked.

I think the real problem almost no one was lucky enough to watch the match...

JUSTINE H-H: 39 WTA-titles and counting...!


Good luck to K-lina Sprem, Venus, Tati Golovin, Daniela, and Lena D

Rocketta- I watched the match and it was somewhat entertaining. There were a lot of errors, mixed with some nice winners. Serena was spraying balls all over the place, while Jen was more consistent and didn't miss much today. That was the difference in the match. I watch every match of Jennifer's that I can, so I guess I am not a good one to tell you to watch the match or not. I, of course, would.

The way Jennifer played today, very few players could beat her. Serena didn't even play that bad. She probably played better than some of the wins against Jennifer before. Serena's ground game wasn't that bad, her serve was pretty good, but she couldn't win the big points and the break points at the right time. She seemed to have lost some focus out there and really wasn't all that hungry looking out there. Jennifer played consistent, deep strokes, good defense and served pretty well. She clearly outplayed Serena today. Serena's movement wasn't as good as before and she looked distracted and not wanting to give it 100%. Serena is getting the rust off and will contend for the French along with Jennifer, Venus(if she plays), Justine and Amelie. Serena can still win the French Open. Jennifer played well, but can she continue?

Just watched it.....not bad, not bad by Serena at all...just some sloppy play on the big points. Give her time....she´s gonna be just fine. People forget this is just her third tourney and her first red-clay tourney..

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

For me Serena played bad, too many silly errors, especially on return.
Jennifer double faulted on her 1st match point
Almost no winners at both sides. But at some moments it was entartaining
That how much I could judge on that highlights, ES showed here.

Us Americans don't get Eurosport.

If I did, I'd be watching tennis 10 hours a day, and never come on here.
