There will be no mixed doubles consolation for Serena Williams. After her shocking first-round upset by Virginie Razzano in the first round of Roland Garros in singles, Serena was sent packing in Paris after a defeat in the first round of mixed doubles. Serena and Bob Bryan lost to Gisela Dulko and Eduardo Schwank of Argentina 7-5 3-6 10-6.
Bob Bryan is current world No.3 in ATP doubles rankings, and was for a long time No.1 doubles player. Also, he’s won 78 career titles in doubles and was runner-up in doubles 42 times. Serena herself entered the 2012 Roland Garros match boasting a 19-3 record in five mixed doubles at Grand Slams, which included two titles and two finals.
Serena can now definitely leave the French Open behind and start focusing on Wimbledon. To help her with that, Nike has already prepared a white dress for her: Women’s London Statement Baseline Dress.
