Els Callens gave Serena a hard time last year:

R32 Els Callens (BEL) - Serena Williams (USA) 6-7(5) 6-7(2)

Well done Els, it is her first victory over Rittner, and it was not their first meeting.

It's time for Serena to get revenge and beat Els easily 6:2 6:2. Good Luck Serena.

Congrats Els.

Sugegstion for Els : Els, go to go Justine and try to learn from her how one can win against Serena.



Just play (hard) deep balls in the middle of the court so that Serena is forced to make the angles herself.

That's the way Justine and Kim have won those matches against her and don't let her intimidate you. She is human.

I hope Els can give Serena another hard time, she can always step it up just a little bit more when playing the best.

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Els will mix it up with serve and volley and further stay on the baseline and take the ball early on. That'll be her (winning ) tactic.

If Els is having a good day it should be a great match.
