Stop making excuses for Venus and Serena

Bottom line is that no matter the surface, a loss is a loss. They didn't bring their games and got beat. Clay is the surface in which their power game can be most neutralized so I don't even see it as a big deal that both Pennetta and Srebotnik lost in the next round. Whatever Serena's excuse of being in a funk or whatever doesn't matter. She lost. Venus never played a sparkling match to get to round 3 so her loss is even less of a surprise. At least both of their opponents got a round further. Its over...its done. They lost. They need to look forward to Wimbledon and Pennetta and Srebotnik can walk away knowing that they busted open that half of the draw. I personally don't even like the whole "funk" excuse. This is a grand slam and knowing that the Queen of Clay retired meant a huge opportunity wasted. I love my girls but a loss is a loss.
