What A Difference A Day Makes ... Serena Bounced In Rome

Black Tennis Pro's Serena Williams Internazionali BNL D'ItaliaSerena Williams (l-r) Monday and Tuesday in Rome

Well, there's really not a whole lot to be said here - American Serena Williams came to Rome, re-crowned herself the "real" world no. 1 and found herself on the losing end of a clay-court smackdown - it's all in the game.

In case you missed it, which I highly doubt, during her press conference on Monday at the Internazionali BNL D'Italia Serena stated, "We all know who the real No. 1 is. Quite frankly, I'm the best in the world."

I still don't have any trouble with that statement even after Tuesday's loss. The problem is, when you trash talk before a game, it always looks better if you win ... then the trash talking isn't quite so trashy.

Black Tennis Pro's Patty Schnyder Internazionali BNL D'ItaliaSwiss Miss Patty Schnyder took her clay-court game to Serena with much less fanfare prior to the match and defeated her 6-2, 2-6, 6-1.

Although Serena made no mention of her recent injury, she was either still hampered by it, or she's really got to get her clay-court legs together.
