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.
There was a time when this whole quadrant belonged to us! What are we now? Twelve worlds and a thousand monuments to past glories. Living off memories and stories, and selling trinkets. My god, man! We've become a tourist attraction. "See the great Centauri Republic - open 9 to 5 - Earth time."

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