NEW YORK (AP) A day before facing Venus Williams - and a partisan crowd - at the U.S. Open, Italy's Sara Errani came across a video posted on Twitter that gave her a little extra motivation.
It showed a pair of former players and coaches, Brad Gilbert and Darren Cahill, forecasting Friday at Flushing Meadows. Both picked Williams to win.
The 13th-seeded Errani's ears perked up particularly when Gilbert referred to her "cottage cheese" serve and predicted she'd win only four games.
