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.

"I've never used me and skinny in the same sentence," Williams said. "Maybe me and thick, or me and curvy or sexy, but not necessarily skinny."

Dr. James McKinnie, a board certified cardiologist/electrophysiologist, is now performing Cryo-Cath at East Jefferson General Hospital. This innovative procedure may be the most effective treatment yet for atrial fibrillation.

Dr. McKinnie has spent more than a quarter of a century developing a reputation as one of the south's leading cardiologists. 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. According to some sources, as much as 40% of all strokes occur to those with a-fib.
