Cincinnati R1: S. Williams def. Hradecka 6-3 7-6(5)

I have called Serena and Lucie all sorts of names since 5-4 in the second set.

Props to Serena to show up and win, but that was really painful to watch.

WTF Serena She was lucky it didn't go to the third, the last two points
Way to mispronounce Hradecka's name, British commentators

Swiss champs.

Low-keyRena showed up today.
Unimpressive and way too lackadaisical throughout.
But a win is a win.
Serenaís new low-key style makes her difficult to read. But in this match, she didnít or couldnít, turn it up today when she needed to.
Hradecka has a nice serve.
Me thinks the previous toruneys have possibly caught up to Serena.

This is why Serena can inexplicably lose...she can definitely play like a mug at times. Very hot in some matches, and then complete suckage in others. She's fortunate that Lucie is a "mug" herself.

LMAO @ this match. At first it seemed like Serena would cruise to win but Lucie suddenly decided to play like a top 10 player and up her level and pushed Serena to the tiebreak. So close but it had to end with a df.
Serena
