Physical miss-match makes Serena win sadly predictable

The old boxing cliche has it that a big good 'un will always beat a good little 'un; and in boxing there are different weight divisions supposedly preventing serious mismatches.

The physical miss-match pitted a middleweight against a featherweight, and the outcome looked sadly predictable; feathers tend to be blown away, and that seemed likely to
