US Open 2013: During defeat to Serena Williams, Francesca Schiavone hugs a ballboyAs she slipped to a 6-0, 6-1 US Open defeat to Serena Williams on Monday, Francesca Schiavone slumped into the arms of a ballboy on Arthur Ashe Stadium court.

The Italian veteran was looking at a double-bagel in her first round tie after being given the run around by the defending champion when she embraced the startled youngster.

"I don't need a hug in that moment. I needed a game, points," said the 33-year-old former French Open champion.

"I went to the ballboy to say, 'Well, that's tough.' It was just a joke."
