Serena Regroups and Wins in Stanford

Serena Williams

After some very mysterious behavior at Wimbledon, Serena Williams, determined to prove that was the result of just an anomalous illness, bypassed all critics and put in a dominating performance at the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford, CA, a tournament she has won three times. Today, she beat Angelique Kerber, of Germany, 7-6 (1), 6-3.

Williams, who captured Stanford titles in 2011-12, improved her unbeaten run at the tournament to 13-0 three weeks before she is set to defend her title at the U.S. Open, which begins August 25.

Williams was down 1-5  in the first – saving two set points at 2-5 – before seizing control of the match and closing out Kerber in 1 hour and 19 minutes.

“Serena had the better answer at the end,” said third-seeded Kerber.
