The second-ranked Williams has dropped four straight matches for the first time in her career, retiring this week from a first-round match against Francesca Schiavone with a nagging knee injury. The unprecedented skid comes two weeks after her swipe at top-ranked Dinara Safina on the eve of the Italian Open. "We all know who the real No. 1 is," Williams said.
