SERENA SHOWS HEART TO TAKE WARSAW TITLE




Serena Williams defeated world number 1 Mary Pierce today to win her first WCTT title. On the back foot for one and a half sets, the gutsy amercian performed an extreme turn around to make the australian open champion look stranded.

Williams' backhand was very vulnerability at the beginning of the match but, ironically, it ended up being the shot that won her the match. She spoke highly of her opponent in the post match press conference.

"I have to hand it to mary, she played extremely well for much of the match, and, if it hadn't been for my incredibly hunger for a title, i think she would have closed it out in 2. obviously, im happy that she didnt, but you know ;)"

This win really places Serena Williams on the WCTT map and she will surely be a feared opponent for the rest of the season.
