Charleston R32:  S. Williams d. G. Dulko 6-3 6-4
slow start, but solid win.
4 DFs, but 5 aces to match, so I guess that's not so bad.
HORRIBLE bp conversion though 5/9
She's got 1 more round to clean it up before she faces Maria potentially, but Gisela is a decent clay courter and Serena didn't seem TOO troubled out there. Plus I mean this is her first completed match on green clay since her win over Pierce at AI in 2005 so not a horrible first outing IMO.
Some CLEAR things to work on, but it could have been MUCH worse
Onto the 16s
Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
Re: Charleston R32:  S. Williams d. G. Dulko 6-3 6-4
1st set: 8 consecutive breaks of serve w/ zero game points. First GP is a set point by Serena
2nd set: both face bps in their 1st service game then hold. And then Gisela gets broken again and then zero bps for the rest of the match.
Def. a lot of stuff Serena needs to improve if she wants to win the title. But it's a decent start to the tournament. Good luck Serena..try to improve you're career win/loss on green clay
