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.
It was the dawn of the third age of mankind, ten years after the Earth/Minbari war. The Babylon Project was a dream given form. Its goal: to prevent another war by creating a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of call, home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, and wanderers. Humans and aliens wrapped in two million, five hundred thousand tons of spinning metal, all alone in the night. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last best hope for peace. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2258. The name of the place is Babylon 5. (Jeffrey Sinclair: Babylon 5: Season 1: Signs and Portents)

Reason: clarification of Serena's losses to players born after 1987
