As we warned you earlier today, Serena Williams played in a nail-biter this evening and eventually beat Vera Zvonareva 6-4, 7-6 .
When she left the court this evening, she complained to a friend that she was completely frustrated. She said the same later.
“I was upset after the match,” she said. “I didn’t feel that I played the greatest at all. I actually felt I didn’t play well at all.”
The match was sloppy. Combined, the two players made 66 unforced errors versus 42 winners. I asked Serena what she needed to change about her game as she gets ready to take on Wimbledon finalist Marion Bartoli.
“I have to just make sure I keep moving up, keep moving forward I think is what I need to do most,” she said.
