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.”
Congrats 2 my opponent today. She did her thing. I'm proud of her. I wish her well. Until next time. There's always tomm & I will be ready.
The number 2 seed, Novak Djokovic, shares a drink & a laugh with one of the ball boys at Roland Garros. Djokovic ended up winning his match versus the Portuguese, Joao Sousa, 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 in the 1st round of the French Open at Roland Garros. Moments like these make Novak a very special player.
