Last matchup Serena won in 3 set without injury.
Just report to the board that the US has some promising youngsters on the women's side. I don't think everyone get a chance to watch the AO matches.
Serena won her previous match against Sloane in 2 sets.
Last night, she was playing on an ankle injury that occured in the first round and was reaggravated the day before in doubles..and oh yeah, that "supposed" (LOL) back spasm.
Sloane played well but Serena was nowhere near the level she has been at the last 8 months because she was injured.
