Serena Williams' emotions got the best of  her, after an opening round victory, at Wimbledon, on Tuesday.

Serena Williams of the United States celebrates after winning her first round match against Aravane Rezai of France on Day Two of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on June 21, 2011 in London, England.

 

A year of dealing with injuries, and sickness, brought Williams to tears, after a three-set victory, over Aravane Rezai.

That display of emotion, says AOL Fanhouse columnist Greg Couch, courtesy of the Sporting News, makes Williams more likeable to tennis, and sports fans.
