Serena Slaughters The Belgium

Tuesday, April 1, 2008

Where James Blake left off this afternoon, fellow American and Florida resident Serena Williams picked up in the women's game and kept the punishment rolling.

The Sony Ericsson Open is feeling all kinds of heat today. Serena Williams was all about her game and took it to Belgium Justine Henin with no holds barred. In little more than an hour and twenty minutes Serena defeated Henin 6-2, 6-0. Yeowches!

Serena was very businesslike and strategic throughout the entire match showing very little emotion or concern for anything other than the next play. If Henin had a game plan, it didn't work.

"It wasn't easy, it was just the fact of me making the right shots at the right time."

"I wish this was a Grand Slam," Serena said with a laugh. "I'm going to try do this at a Grand Slam, and not only at this tournament."

During her post-match news conference, an exchange regarding Serena's fitness left the room in laughter.

Reporter: "So many people here at the tournament have been buzzing about just how good you look physically on the court. You've not looked this good since... Can you finish that sentence?"

Williams: "Since 1982."

Reporter: "Serious question."

Williams: "That was a serious answer."
