Serena Stunned at Roland Garros

Serena Williams will be packing her bags earlier than expected as she was upset by 20 year old Spaniard, Garbine Muguruza in the 2nd Round of the French open, 6-2, 6-2.  The win over Serena marks the first in the modern era that the top 2 women’s seeds have been eliminated before the 3rd round.  Number 2 seed, Li Na, lost in the first round of the tournament yesterday to Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 3-6, 6-1.

Serena struggled the entire match, only winning four games which is the fewest games won by Serena in 288 grand slam matches. Although Serena played poorly throughout the match, she was impressed by Muguruza’s game telling her at the net, “if she keeps playing like this, she can win the tournament.”

BNP Paribas Open Championship

Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer in the finals of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (3). This was Djokovic’s first title of 2014, & 3rd BNP Paribas Open of his career.

Federer still leads the all-time series between the two 17-16.  Djokovic leaves Indian Wells with a $1 Million check & will remain #2 in the World. Federer has played splendid tennis in 2014, and will rise to #5 in the world.

On the women’s side Flavia Pennetta captured the biggest win of her career after she defeated Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 6-1. Radwanska tried to battle through injury, but obviously her play was not on Pennetta’s level. This was Pennetta’s 10th career victory and she will rise from 21st in the world to 12th.
