Serena loses 3-Set THRILLER: 7-6(5) in the 3rd!
Serena lost her quarterfinal match against Dinara Safina 2-6, 6-1, 7-6(5). Wow! I did not see this match (yet) but I take it that Safina played an AWESOME match, backing up her victory over Justine Henin (yesterday). Congratulations Safina! I am proud of the progress that Serena has made this year and during this tournament. She should be proud also. Next up, Rome and then the French Open. Get a little rest because you have two more clay titles to win! Go Serena!
