Shock defeat of Serena Williams in 1st round of French Open 2012
Serena Williams lost to Frenchwoman Virginie Razzano in the first round the 2012 French Open in Paris and it has happened for the first time in her 47 appearances in major tournaments as reported in the Telegraph dated 29th of May 2012.
Serena lost 6-4, 6-7, 3-6 after three hours of turbulent and controversial combat with the French player Razzano, who is ranked 111 in the world.
Razzano played on despite suffering from bouts of cramps and, at the end of the game, thanked the crowd of fans who had eagerly waited for her to finish on top.
It was difficult for tennis pro Serena Williams to accept the shock defeat - she had won her first clay-court event in Charleston two months ago, and followed that up with another victory at the Madrid Masters. Hence, losing to a low-ranked opponent was not easy to swallow.
After 35 seasons in New Jersey, the Nets returned to New York following last season. The Brooklyn Nets will call the Barclays Center home, and will have one of the Eastern Conference's most dynamic back courts this season with guards Deron Williams and former Atlanta star Joe Johnson.
It is rare to see big guys with Zeller’s mix of aggressive playing style, super bounce, and a relentless work ethic. Those things should make him very attractive in the draft process.
At point guard, Derek Fisher is still looking for a home along with Jonny Flynn, Gilbert Arenas, T.J. Ford, Earl Boykins and Mike Bibby (among others).
“(All-Star), without a doubt,” DeRozan said. “Going against (Team USA) this summer really challenged me more to get there this season.”
NBA coaches often look for one or two NBA-ready skills that their rookies can build around and use to justify playing time early in their careers, but Beal’s game cannot be pigeon-holed by just one thing he does well. He has already shown a more well-rounded skill set.
