Sveta, what? What?? How unexpected was that? I mean, obviously, Sveta has had the far superior clay season and is-- these days-- the superior clay player, but I always assume that once she's into the quarters of a Slam (assuming her opponent is not named V. Williams, J. Henin, or J. Jankovic), Serena has pretty much an automatic pass to the final. And since Sveta is such a nutcase, there didn't seem to be any reason to think today would be different.
