Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open this week has reached a Wednesday third round match versus the Russian 16th seeded Nadia
Petrova. That Serena is not playing her best this week, had a minor injury in the previous round and that clay is
her worst surface plus the face that Petrova can be tough all add up to a possible tough Wednesday for Serena.

entered in the Madrid doubles competition with her sister Venus Williams. In other news, it appears that Venus will move up in the WTA Tour
