Looks Like Schett Is Getting Her Ass Spanked By Serena

Serena won the first set 6-0 and is up 5-0 in the second and will probably finish her match in less than 40 minutes.

Looks like she could get a double bagel! Could Venus' poor play yesterday have stung Serena into action.

Schett just got double bageled.

6-0, 6-0 in exactly 40 minutes. She only had two winners against Serean and Serena broke her serve on 6 of eight chances. Schett must have really stunk because Serena's average first serve speed was on 95 MPH.

This Article Doesn't Mess Around

Tennis-Open-Focused Serena wins non-match against Schett
Reuters
May 30 2003 11:20AM

PARIS, May 30 (Reuters) - In one of the most embarrassing performances seen on centre court at Roland Garros Barbara Schett could only hit one winner in each set of her 6-0 6-0 humiliation to top seed Serena Williams on Friday.
The Austrian, once ranked seventh in the world, actually grabbed 20 points in her 40-minute drubbing, but 16 came from unforced errors from the top seed and world number one, and two from double faults by the defending champion.

A dismal average of one winner every 20 minutes allowed Serena to enjoy a comfortable passage to the fourth round, in which she will meet Japan's Ai Sugiyama.

"It wasn't as easy as it looked. I think I was really focused for every point, not just one here and there," she said.

"I'm really focused here. I want to do well at this tournament. This is a grand slam. I didn't actually look at the statistics but I can serve better for sure," the American added.

Her own showing on a very hot day was almost irrelevant. Had she read the statistics sheet, Serena would have been struck by the number of zeros in Schett's column.

The 27-year-old Austrian could not even claim to be panic-stricken by the idea of meeting one of the Williams sisters, having beaten Venus here two years ago.

Serena said the memory might have inspired her to punish her opponent, but it was not really a convincing explanation.

"Her being my sister maybe, deep down, there was something there. But Schett's been in the top 10, I could not joke around at all," she said.

At least, the winner of the last four grand slams can be pleased she spent as little time as possible in the heat.

"It being so hot, you have to stay focused so you don't stay so long out there. I still think I did very well," she said.

Williams warned she would keep the momentum going for her next match against 16th seed Sugiyama, who beat 18th seed American Meghann Shaugnessy 6-1 6-4.

"I don't remember playing her at all. But she did well today. I think I have to be ready and close to what I did today if not better," she said.
