SERENA WILLIAMS RUMORS

Serena Williams into French Open quarters, defeats Sloane Stephens

  For the third match in a row at the French Open, Serena Williams was oddly out of sorts at the outset and dropped the opening set. And for the third match in a row, almost as though this was the plan all along, Williams righted herself to pull out a victory. In a riveting, two-hour showdown between the last two American women in the draw, the No. 1-ranked and No. 1-seeded Williams...

Serena Williams cracks herself up after flubbing a lob at the French Open

Serena Williams is not above having fun with her games at the French Open. The women's No. 1 tennis player cracked herself up after she flubbed a deceptively easy-looking lob during her first-round match against Andrea Hlavackova at Roland Garros on Tuesday.  Williams got fooled by the awkward spin of the shot during the first set and let out a squeal as she got plunked by the ball...

Star-studded women’s semifinal at Madrid Open

I am pretty pleased to announce that half of my quarterfinal picks for the Mutua Madrid Open’s women’s draw were accurate. This is quite the accomplishment, considering the current inconsistent state of the WTA. What’s even more amazing is that three out of four of the top seeds are in the semifinals. Since becoming a Premier Mandatory tournament in 2009, this tournament has...

Serena Williams rallied back from a first-set 6-0 loss to Flavia Pennetta at the Hopman Cup on Monday to win her match 0-6, 6-3, 6-0. The secret to the comeback? Espresso. No, seriously.

Serena Williams has 'big' reason why she won't run marathons

A teary-eyed Serena Williams waited patiently at the finish line of last Sunday's NYC Marathon for her tennis rival and good friend Caroline Wozniacki to complete the race — which she did in an impressive 3 hours, 27 minutes.
