First Set to Amelie Mauresmo!

What a shocker- following the IBM scoreboard I can't tell what's happening- WHAT'S HAPPENING?!? Is she outplaying Serena? The stats look pretty close except that Amelie seems to be really improving her first service percentage- up to 70% winning ratio on first serves now!

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Amelie is playing well, mixing it up and coming to the net a fair bit

She is hanging in rallies with Rena, and Rena is making too many UE's.

Serena got tight when she was serving for the set and really has yet to recover even though she just won her opening xervice game in the second set.

Well, no matter what happen now, I and I hope most people will have faith back on women tennis again. The first set have some of the best rallies in women tennis. Although Serena did manage to let Amelie back into the match. Amelie played very well tactically. Interesting to know how the second set will go now

They are going to kill her. She just lost serve at 15 and if she can't manage to break back, I think the match will be over if she cannot clean up her game.

Amelie just broke to go up 2-1 in the second set!

The other problem is Serena's first serve winning %. It is only 40% in the second set.

Well, she is down 3-1 and if wants any chance of getting back into the match, she'd better hold serve and she is down 0-30 right now.
