Serena's opening match confirmed: Wed night at 7 pm

Serena Williams to Open Play on Wednesday Evening

STANFORD, Calif. (www.BankOfTheWestClassic.com) - Eight-time Grand Slam Champion Serena Williams will take the court Wednesday, July 16 at 7 p.m. for her opening match at the 2008 Bank of the West Classic being held at the Taube Family Tennis Center on the campus of Stanford University.

Williams will play the winner of Tuesday’s Gisela Dulko (ARG)-Michelle Larcher de Brito (POR) match.

Williams, the former World No. 1, has already won three Sony Ericsson WTA Tour tiles this year including the Tier 1 Sony Ericsson Open in Miami bringing her total career singles titles to 31. She has posted an impressive 31-4 singles record heading into this year’s Bank of the West Classic following her run to the Wimbledon final.



Rest of the field better step to her play.

hmm. Dulko or Larcher de Brito. Considering she's already faced Dulko this year, I think it'd be cool if Serena could play the very young Michelle this time around.

You want to see Serena abuse a child? Dude, you're sick.

Re: Serena's opening match confirmed: Wed night at 7 pm

I wish Serena the best of luck, as well as my favorite Dominika Cibulkova. She is first on Centre Court tomorrow, I believe. Or maybe it is just on Court 11. Either way, I hope that Serena and Domi are both successful. Domi tomorrow, and Serena on Wednesday. : )

Dominika Cibulkova | Sorana Cirstea | Caroline Wozniacki | Elena Dementieva

Need I say anything more?

Re: Serena's opening match confirmed: Wed night at 7 pm

Serena looks fatigued. Maybe it's because she isn't wearing makeup, but I hope she is getting her rest at night. This week shouldn't be a problem but I do not want to see her fizzle in the LA Sun to someone stupid.

Good luck this week Serena! I love that she gets to rest Thursday before her QF with Patty. !

Either way Serena will crush these girls. Only Vera or Domi can give her some trouble. Hopefully she can breeze through this so she can beat JJ and Kuzzi and V at Carson!!!!!!!!!!!

SERENA WILLIAMS. Ana Ivanovic. Li Na.
