What is all this "Serena played badly." Did you all even watch the match. It wasn't peak 2013 Rena, but she did not play a bad match. Jeez... One lil hiccup and then everyone's like "horrible, mess" etc.

Burdette has a nice game yes but I have rarely seen someone move that bad on a tennis court. But maybe was she injured?

I think overall Serena played well. Obviously not at her peak 100%, but it was okay. Burdette was making a lot of her shots and didn't miss a lot for a good part of the match, and this was what upset Serena IMO....

I only saw the last part of the match as well. If you know Serena then you know she is hard on herself. When she makes an error she shakes her head in disgust like as if she is evaluating in her mind what she did wrong.

It was a mess, but it was still a win over a top 30 player on clay. This has to be good news for Venus!

Well, these players were winners in their youth.
They have pride and no one want to be embarrassed on the big stage.
If you are fortunate enough to play Serena, you are on the big stage; whether it is round 1 or semi final.
It is also a barometer to gauge where you are in your progress, Serena is measuring stick. You are happy if you get out of match w/o a bagel.

For all those reasons, many people will be watching, your family & friends, your rivals, etc..

Good clean match from Serena, I really enjoyed the first set.

If she had actually played badly, Mallory would have won this. A few too many errors from her(Mal) but she was not missing by much. Still has some work to do on her movement but a very bright future there.

GL in the quarters Serena! Really hoping for a sisters' match tomorrow.

Congrats Ree, nice match.

Good effort, Burdette.

And why are we thinking peak Serena was going to show up today? Too early on the clay, it will come.

I'd rather her get out nervous play now last year she played well on clay only to withdraw suddenly from that paris tournament

Re: Charleston R3: [1] Serena "the Lightbringer" Williams def M. Burdette 6-4 6-2

Mallory brought it today. The difference showed in the end, but the first set and a half it was a grudge match. Great match to warm Serena up.

UE stats in Charleston are crazy. I mean that they note UE as forced errors.
