It was a tough three-set match, but in the end Serena Williams prevailed over Vera Zvonareva. Serena’s ranking is expected to rise to #6 in the world after winning this, her third title of the year. Serena was glad she came out of the gates strong. “I just wanted to get that first set under my belt, and thank God I did because I lost the second.” She knew it wasn’t going to be an easy day against Vera. “I’ve played her a few times, so I really know her game and she’s a real fighter and she never stops.” The power and shot-making from both sides of the court was IMPRESSIVE. Here are a few of my favorites out of the mere 715 I shot during the match!!!
