Serena Williams never shies away from drama and it was no different in her first round match in Paris.
The 10-time Grand Slammer was on a 4-match losing streak and had not won a match on clay this year - and it showed. But after wasting eight match points ReRe converted on her ninth defeating Klara Zakopalova 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-4 and gaining revenge for her Marbella loss to the Czech. She'll next face Spanish veteran Virgina Ruano Pascual in the second round.
ReRe showed up for her match in the new Nike Dri-FIT Athlete Women's Tennis Dress ($95) in bright coral/classic charcoal/vivid pink (second option: classic charcoal/black/soft pearl.) It's a pretty simple scoop neck, color-block design and features colors that compliment each other nicely. This dress is a much better choice than either outfit she wore in Oz and maybe the best this fortnight.
Nice moves, ReRe.
