This was evidence that Serena has issues with Roland Garros
There's no other explanation. Virginie certainly outplayed her, no doubt about that, but Serena mentally collapsed...Zvonareva style.
She simply cannot handle the French crowd and her emotions and focus get the best of her MORE than usual. This year was probably her best chance at getting a French Open crown since 2008. Evidence that the past is still haunting her at the French.
