That 9th game was key....look at the stats, doesn´t illustrate the scoreline.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Maria was CONSTANTLY on top. Serena struggling 90% of the game not because she played badly but because she was under pressure all the time.

Well play Maria. I rarely feel so excited when other players beside my faves play.

Justine Henin

Thank you.

The bar has been raised yet again. Serena was reduced to defense today. It was never about her in this match. It will be fun to see how she works to raise her level in response.

I'm happy for Sharapova...she really deserved today and she had her mind set on winning wimbledon...Serena played ok she could have done better than what she did today....but i would rather Serena loose to someboby new with as much drive as SSharapova...2 thumbs up to Sharapova... She is an honorary American lol. I'm still proud of my girl Serena...though...I think this is kinda of a wake up call to get back 100% with their day job.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!
