Serena should have won the first set 62, watch the match again.
And that would have changed the complexion of the whole match.
At 3-2, a bad call on game point (shown to be bad on replay) led to deuce and then Kim made it 33, while it should have been 4-2. Here is how it went from that point on:
33-should have been-42
43-should have been-52
53-should have been-62
... and Serena lost the set.
Of course, she lost the set for two other reasons:
1- her forehand was way off to the point of not working at all, and her backhand failed uncharacteristically more often then usual.
2- the other blonde on the court, Kim, was a superb retriever and played very well over all.
Now, blast me if you want, I can take it. Before you do, watch the match once more if you taped it.
