Upset City: The French Open

It’s upset season at the French Open. Following Roger Federer’s was dethronement by Robin Sonderling of Sveden, Serena Williams was defeated by Samantha Stosur, a women who has never made it to the finals of a Grand Slam. For Stosur this is the second big name player she has defeated in a row, the first being Henin. Now she is set to take on Jelena Jankovic who is favored in the match, and who people who know more about this sport than me say is “due”.

Look at those cat-like reflexes!

Meanwhile, as the battle for Queen of the Clay looms, Serena Williams has retreated to her underground lair to heal her emotional wounds before Wimbledon. It is rumored that her training regimen will include the hunting and killing of wolves with her bare hands, three days substituting for Atlas, an arm wrestling contest with the Kraken (while holding her breath no less), and lessons from John McEnroe on how to properly deal with field judges.
