MASON, Ohio — The only upset in Serena Williams's first-round match on Tuesday against Lucie Hradecka was registered in the stands, well above the court, when one female fan turned to another and said, "Serena's legs look skinny."

Williams, who is built more like the curvy singer Beyoncé than the supermodel Naomi Campbell, smiled when the comment was relayed to her after her 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory at the Western & Southern Open, her final tuneup for the United States Open.

As an electrophysiologist, he is uniquely qualified to address the condition known as atrial fibrillation or A-fib. A-fib occurs when the upper and lower chambers of the heart do not beat in rhythm. This lack of rhythm can be quite painful to the thousands who suffer with the condition that is sometimes also known as "irregular heartbeat". This condition should not be taken lightly.
