Nicely said Serena.....you did your best, too bad for a botched line-call.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Serena took this loss really well. I hope people who criticise her for being "ungracious" or "unsportsman-like" should watch this match. Serena's behaviour was controlled and impressive. I am sorry that she had to lose this match though.

Serena was a class act @ the net! Too bad some of her fans on this board aren't like that at all hoping Jen to lose in the next round.

I think she knew. She just gave up.

Also congrats on the fans for showing some 'class & restraint'
