Everyone enraged because Serena was not completely fit in that match. From Stephens' perspective though, it did not matter one bit. IT was a big stage, a big match, a big opponent, and she managed the situation superbly. I think everyone agreed American's women's tennis seems to be on the up by the evidence from this AO. She is the player who did the best, far and away, of the young crop. So whats the problem with a little exposure? Do you want all US tennis fans to die with the retirement of Serena and Venus?
