Serena was surprised by how well Kim was playing
First of all, I am both a Kim and Serena fan and I was very surprised at how well Kim was playing and how early she was taking the ball against a hard hitter like Serena.
At the second game of the second set when Serena got broken she muttered to herself: I can not believe it.
I think her frustration grew because she underestimated Kim's level, but at the same time I have never seen Kim so quiet and concentrated, even after bad unforced errors she regrouped.
Congratulations to Kim for a great win, I sincerely hope she wins it all. I am looking forward to see Serena back; very soon. She had a stellar year with two grand slams already.
On a positive side: the first reaction of Serena after the outburst was to think about Kim and go and say congrats, that was a good thing to do.
Tennis is cool
