After beating Timea Bacsinszky in the French Open semifinals on Thursday Serena Williams said in a statement ” I felt really terrible during the semis. I’m actually not sure how I got through the match, and when it was over, I just kind of collapsed. I couldn’t move. I think I have some kind of flu, which makes it tough, because it’s just a matter of resting and keeping hydrated.”
With her minor setback, rest and hydration was clearly the winning antidote. Serena camback on Saturday to win the 20th Grand Slam Title against 28 year old Czech tennis player Lucie Šafářová.
