Serena stuns Sara; Advances to (Dubai) 3rd Round
Serena has defeated Sara Errani 4-6, 6-2, 6-0 in 2nd Round action at the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships. That third set bagel was indeed tasty but as we have come to accept, there are times when Serena starts really slow, and that she did. Credit to Serena, she always fights (regardless of how bad she might be playing) and finds a way to win. That's what CHAMPIONS do! Match Stats: 47 winners, 31 errors, 9 aces, 7 seven double faults and 1 hour and 41 minutes of match play. Serena's 3rd Round opponent will be Jie Zheng of China.
