Re: Womens Tennis in General

Even before her injury Serena was playing a fairly mediocre match, her C game I suppose. The match was pretty boring up til the middle of the 2nd set.

Serena had won 23 sets in a row going back to the 3rd set of the US Open final prior to losing the 2nd set today.

Serena's longest winning streak of her career remains at 21 matches: from the 2nd round (1st round bye) of Rome in 2002 til the quarters of Los Angeles where she lost 7-5 in the 3rd set to Rubin.

This is the 2nd time Serena has lost to a player born after 1987 in the slams, the 1st was Makarova last year. Nobody born after 1987 has beaten Serena twice (slams and non-slams) though.

Captain Matthew Gideon: I may have an idea.
Dureena Nafeel: I don't think you've recovered from your last good idea.
Captain Matthew Gideon: That would explain it.
