Serena Advances to Rome Quarterfinals

by Craig Hickman

Serena seems serious. Her 6-3, 6-3 victory over Israel's Shahar Peer supports her belief that she is the person to beat at Roland Garros.

The win advances her to the quarterfinals where she'll take on Switzerland's Patty Schnyder who defeated Samantha Stosur, the woman who sent Amelie Mauresmo packing, in straight sets.

Serena has played Patty 7 times in her career, winning 6 matches. The only loss she endured was on clay in Charleston. Serena has stated that she slides better on red clay than the green stuff used in Charleston, so if she remains healthy, I feel tomorrow is her match to lose.
