Re: Schynder def. S. Williams 6-0, 3-0 ret.
I guess she was tired in Moscow too?! She had a ton of unforced errors there too.
I think she needs a better plan next year on how to first get as consistently healthy as possible. Then, an approach on how often to play for her year overall so that she doesn't get too tired, but still plays enough not to be rusty and hit error after error.
At the moment, Serena is not playing like the great dominate champ of old, and its understandable since she's still on a(nother) comeback from injury and not match tough either. Three weeks is not really enough to get back in the groove.
I don't count the US Open, as Serena was clearly not at her best there, and I feel she only played because she refused to miss a GS in her home country.
