Serena withdraws from Acura Classic

CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) -- Mary Pierce scored an overpowering 6-1, 6-3 victory over Virginia Razzano in the first round of the Acura Classic on Monday, the same day top-ranked Serena Williams withdrew from the tournament because of a left quadriceps strain.

Williams, winner of five of the past six Grand Slam titles, withdrew Monday night because she was feeling considerable pain in her left knee due to the injury, WTA Tour spokesman Darrell Fry said.

Williams, the top draw for the event that includes seven of the top 10 ranked women, canceled an afternoon interview session because she was visiting a Los Angeles-area doctor to be examined for the injury, which originally was believed to be tendinitis.

She cited the same injury when she withdrew before the start of last week's Bank of the West Classic, won by No. 2-ranked Justine Henin-Hardenne.

Pierce, a two-time Grand Slam winner who reached a career-high ranking of No. 3 just three years ago, had little trouble in dispatching Razzano.

Pierce, whose ranking has plunged to No. 73 after three injury-plagued seasons, jumped out to leads of 5-1 and 5-2 en route to the victory.

In other first-round matches, Eleni Daniilidou defeated Rita Grande 7-5, 6-3; Svetlana Kuznetsova beat Leslie Koffi 6-2, 6-1; Magui Serna eliminated Laura Granville 6-3, 6-3; Tina Pisnik downed Paola Suarez, 6-2, 3-6, 7-5; and Marion Bartoli beat Marissa Irvin 7-6 (2), 6-4.

well, that happens a lot of times. Commentators even fuck it up...

Serena vs. Granville at Wimby...
"Venus, I mean Serena really put a lot of spin on that ball."
It's embarrassing and very annoying, especially if one's taller than the other one, has a different hair color, clothing company, etc. But they can always tell the blondes apart.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

Justine won a tournament she didn't enter? Wow, she is good!

But, of course, all those blonde Belgians look alike to American writers. And Kim and Justine are practically twins. </myopia>

Ah... that's why I can never tell them apart... same backhand technique, same hairdo, same clothes, same size, same boyfriend/hubby, same language... That explains almost everything!

I don't think most Americans care about the Belgian 'sisters' (duh Jennifer!!). Therefore, who cares if they mix up their names, they probably think that if they can even remember one of them it is good!!

How stupid is all I can say!
