Serena Williams advances to Rogers Cup quarterfinals

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

Serena Williams, who won the Swedish Open in mid-July, is still swinging that tennis racket with legendary skill. She crushed Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium yesterday, with a 6-0, 6-3 win. Williams went into the game with a strong mindset, not of overconfidence but of respect for her opponent. “She wasn’t able to play her game as much as she wanted to, ” Williams said of Flipkens. “When you play such a high-ranked player, you have to go in there with the mindset of do the best you can before they can step all over you.” Good advice to anyone hoping to topple Williams at the Rogers Cup tonight!
