US Open 3rd Round: S.Williams (8) def. V.Zvonareva (27) 6-4 7-6 (4)

Really just a sloppy match where the winners from both players were heavily outweighed by the UE's
Serena should have served out the 1st set a 5-3 and her forehand is still lacking a little conviction, but it did get better as the match went on and hit a great winner a 5-5 30-15.A match like this would have done serena good but Serena will NEED to step it up from here. Still, a win is a win

Ghastly match. Losing two match points on serve. Blah.

Gotta give Vera some credit though, very nice comeback for her.

A much more competitive match than expected. It wasn`t a thing of beauty, but Serena did good enough to get the win. Hopefully she can improve her play. I was impressed with Vera, not only with her play, but also that she kept her composure throughout the match.

That was a fun match.
It's good to see Serena really digging her heels into these early round matches and it's good to see Bepa back on court and playing very well.

Even though more UFE than in her first 2 rounds I still think she played better. Much more aggressive and near the end of the match there were flashes of the real Serena. Just brief flashes but hopefully in the next round she can continue to step it up. Plus her ROS was soo much better than her first two rounds I saw glimpses of the true Serena return

Vera great match after having so much time off. She really acquitted herself and if she can continue to play she'll be back in the top 15 for sure.

That performance belongs in Brad Gilbert's : Winning Ugly.

That was painful. I can't believe I sat through it and survived.

If Serena plays like that Justine could be keeping the "bagel every match" trend going.

Nice fight Bepa. Glad you're back in action, hope the indoor season will bring some good results.
