She squandered a 5-0 first-set lead. Serena Williams must have gotten all she could handle from Jie Zheng because by the middle of the second set, Serena was winning more points on her second serve than her first and a mere 52% of service points overall.
I'd like to have seen the how of it. How Zheng was pressuring Serena's first serves. How Serena was double faulting so much. How she recovered. How Zheng capitulated.
But, alas, there was no television coverage.
Which means I also didn't get to see Caroline Wozniacki upset No. 4 seed Elena Dementieva.
Oh, to be a player in the bottom half of the draw. If former champ Svetlana Kuznetsova can't find her way to the final then she might want to consider a different career.
