Serena survives French test

Men's Tennis, Last updated:


Second seed Serena Williams accused herself of playing "junior tennis" during her French Open scare against Klara Zakopalova.

The hard-hitting American seemed destined for a one-sided first-round win when she took the first set but lost her way after five match-points came and went at 5-3 in the second set, eventually losing it in a tie-break.
Williams eventually took the third against the world number 100 to seal an edgy 6-3 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 victory and was less then impressed with her first success on clay in 2009.
"I played horrendous," said the American.
"I played junior tennis or even worse. I hadn't won a match on clay all year so I was just desperate for a win."
