Champion Serena Williams, 6–0, 6–3. It is indeed surprising that Safina, with a world ranking of third before the tournament, could lose so decisively to Williams, who was ranked as second. In an interview following her loss, Safina told reporters that the critical importance of the match had simply overwhelmed her. As she lamented: “It was the first time for me to play not only for a grand slam, but also for Number One spot” (“Safina Sorry for Final Flop,” 2009).

Furthermore, worry may become reinforced because most of the threatening events that one is preoccupied with, say, totally bombing in a job interview or public presentation, seldom actually occur. This failure of negative events to materialize may be attributed falsely to the power of worry. Persistent worrying may serve to preserve deeply held beliefs about personal threats (sometimes called schemata; Meichenbaum & Butler, 1980), blocking the person from learning that he or she has overestimated the threat or 16 Introduction underestimated his or her own abilities to cope effectively.

In addition, scores on social anxiety measures tend to correlate with peer rating of social skills and with observational behavioral measures (Arkowitz, Lichtenstein, McGovern, & Hines, 1975).
