RG R1: Serena Williams (USA) (2) chokes past Klara Zakopalova (CZE) 6-3 6-7 6-4

Unbelievable.
She should have won 6/3 6/3
Oh well, hopefully she is in one of those angry moods and can pluck something from nowhere...

Well done to Klara for sticking with Serena and never giving up.

Klara was like a gnat that kept buzzing and biting. Good fight from her, though.

Serena was her typical up-and-down, 1st-round-of-a-slam self

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

What a tospy turvy match

High quality first two sets. Klara really took her game to Serena, it was definetely a much better version of their match a few weeks ago.

Serena needs to step it up, however. Wasting 5 match points in R1 against #100 in the world will not do. She nearly lost that match, and had Klara held at 2-1 40-0, who knows what price Serena might have payed for not closing out earlier.

Regrettably a life long fan of Ana Ivanović

There's obviously no excuse for failing to serve out the match, but I thought it was a good match overall. Zakopalova played very well. Great offense and defense from both players.
