Serena Williams tells reporters at the Family Circle Cup that she will not let her shocking first-round loss to Virginie Razzano at the 2012 French Open affect her during the red clay-court season.

“I can’t let that hang over me,” Williams said. “It’s not that big of a deal. I think it only is as big as you make it, and if I make it big, it’ll be big.

“For me you gotta let that bad energy go and just accept good things to come into your life and it will.”
