I really think Serena is playing not to lose instead of to win. If you look at her last three tournements on the forehand side all she does is steer it in instead of going for it and as a result her opponents unload on that shot putting her on the defensive. Until Serena gets her confidence back to just hit her shots she will have more close matches like this because she will be relying too much on her serve and if the returner does what Lindsay did she will lose more matches because it is hard to hold your serve all the time.

A big struggle for Serena against a virtual unknown.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

I was watching the live score and it said Serena was up a set AND a break. Then I look again and it said she lost the first set and it was even in the second! Stupid scoreboard...

Jelena you'll beat her very very soon. She played so many close matches this year. She could have been a top 15 is she won them. But she'll be there soon anyway

NO


Jankovic suffers from severe Chinese syndrome! Only God can help her!

true, Serena must have not been playing well but at some point, she must have been aggressive like old cuz she led 5-2 before unraveling. Fortunatley, last 2 sets were 6-2, 6-3.

Onto the next match, a win is a win at this point.

Certainly, we'll take the win but she has definite problems. We can't just ignore it.

Definetely....a win is a win, but the issues are there for sure. A distinct inability to hold serve. If she can愒 even rely on her serve, then she has a loooooooooooonnnnggg way to go.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?
