Wednesday marks the end of Serena Williams' brief respite from the tennis court after her latest victory at Wimbledon when she takes on Nicole Gibbs in the 2012 Bank of the West Classic. The No. 1 seed in this tournament, Williams received a bye into the second round. Thus, she had to wait to find out if her opponent was to be Gibbs or Noppawan Lertcheewakarn. Gibbs defeated Lertcheewakarn in straight sets, 6-4 6-4.
