I would have rather seen Serena lose to Angela Haynes than Jill Craybas
Well. It makes you wonder. Did Serena know of Richard's wishes of not wanting her to play before she played against Jill Craybas? I'm a Serena fan but I don't know about this lost. A couple of times it seemed that she didn't want to be there or win this match. I don't know what the reason for that lack of intensity but it was there I know that for sure. Maybe she didn't want to play Venus in her condition, who knows. Jill Craybas played a good match but not great. She probably played the best against Serena that she'll ever play. I'll give Jill some credit. One thing I believe though. If Craybas happens to find a way to beat Venus. I really really really think Venus should retire at the end of the year. Venus couldn't be set up any better to get to the quarters. For Venus to lose to a player like Jill is saying that maybe she doesn't even belong in the top 20.
