Leave it to Serena to take it to the next level; even with the fashion-heavy Aravane Rezai across the net — the frenchwoman deserves her own post — TSF was still wowed by the belly chain accent on Ms. Williams’ red Nike outfit (what if it got caught on that ring?!). And kudos to that Hello Kitty receipt bag (from Venus) she had in her purse at the AO preview presser.
She has earned the Australian Open’s top seeding on the women’s side (just released), and is efficiently prepping for the year’s first major by extending her winning streak in Sydney. Serena has a chance to take the title from defending champion Elena Dementieva. In the semis, Serena needed three sets to beat Rezai while Dementieva brushed aside Azarenka in two quick sets.
