In 30 appearances in Grand Slams, Serena Williams has never lost in the first round. “Touch wood that record continues,” commented the American former champion after defeating Bulgaria???s Tsvetana Pironkova yesterday. ???It might happen one day, but I???m really proud of that record.” The number eight seed???s earliest defeat in a Grand Slam came in her very first event, the Australian Open back in 1998.
Any excuse to see photo or commentary on Serena is a good one for the Villager (smile)! She was my Village Hero yesterday as a result of her record-setting serve.
I hope that she does well. In fact, I would love to see a Venus vs. Serena final!
