Serena OUT, Nadal Cruises, Bertens Carted Off?? - Day 4 Recap and Results

Serena out this early? It is not what you think. Serena pulled out of this year's Roland Garros due to an Achilles injury that she did not want to take a chance with. "I always give a hundred percent... and I take solace in that." said the 23 time champion in her post-match press conference. To be honest, it might be the smartest idea. She did not look comfortable in her last match against Ahn. Even though she was dominant in the second set, with these conditions, it was hard to see Serena not struggle in this environment. She will most likely not participate in any other competition for the rest of the year.


Nadal crushed American, and friend of the channel, Mackenzie McDonald today in straight sets. The only good thing that came out of this match was this tweet from Burger King:


So the Bertens versus Errani match was... weird? Bertens took the lengthy three-setter, 9-7. But in between the match, Bertens was fighting off two injuries and had to be carted off the court in a while chair. Bertens showed pure emotion after claiming the match and honesty, deserved to after the way Errani was acting towards her. Openly mocking the Dutch player after claiming she was injured during the match.

“I don't like when somebody is joking on you. She played an amazing match, but I don't like the situation,” Errani said.


“For one hour she’s injured, then she run like never. I don’t like that.

“She goes out of the court on the chair, and now she’s in the locker room perfect, in the restaurant. I don't like these things.


“Then after people say to me that I’m an unfair person. It's funny for me these things. I don't think she did a good attitude on court. I didn’t like that.” (Yahoo Sports)


The Italian was even caught yelling "f*** you" to Bertens when leaving court
