World No.1 Serena Williams escaped the fate of her Rome appearance where she fell to Jelena Jankovic despite having two match points and advanced to the third round of the Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open by battling past 43-ranked Vera Dushevina.
The match at the Premier-level tournament in Madrid lasted almost three and a half hours and included three tiebreaks to finish with a score 6-7(2) 7-6(5) 7-6(5). The twelve-time Grand Slam champion’s career is sure rich in experience, but her today’s much against the Russian winner of one WTA title is the longest match of her long career.
The top-seeded Williams had three set points in the first set before losing it, then fought off a match point in the second, and in the third set she wasted a 5-2 lead only to see herself trailing 4-0 in the deciding tiebreak. However, the top-seeded Williams eventually defeated Dushevina after a close and long match. (photo: Stephane Martinache)

Sorry, but to me this was yet another one of Seren’s “I really can’t be bothered” matches whereby she puts in very little effort but her opponent STILL isn’t good enough to take advantage!! 🙁

LuLinQa, you’ve got halušky and it’s better than cereal. 😉
Thank u Marija 🙂 I like u soo much 🙂 Do you also like bryndza?? 🙂
LuLinQa, I’m not sure I tried bryndza, but it may be that we have something similar here, as I can see on Wikipedia. But I love all kinds of cheese.
