Serena is Upset in Marbella

Serena Williams by burntfilm.

The top-seeded Williams, who suffered from a thigh injury during the final of the Sony Ericsson Open, was stunned in the second round of the Andalucia Tennis Championships by 95th ranked Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic.

The extent of Williams’ injury was apparent, as she was broken seven times.

After the match, Williams commented by saying that she “was trying to play her best tennis but the injury prevented [her] from reaching [her] top level.”

I am glad to see a top player grind through a match when she clearly wasn’t at her best. Perhaps, two of Serbia’s biggest stars can use this as an example for the future.
