Her speech about investments was so cute! I have always thought she is classy!

That was one of Serena's better concession speeches. Cute, funny, and real.

I'd like to apologize for some, questionable comments I made earlier, about Serena. Being the overenthusiastic Maria fan that I am, I jumped to conclusions a little irrationally.

The injury timeout, coinciding with the upsurge in Serena's play, and the freefall of Maria's... The worst part of me got the upper hand. Again, I apologize to those I offended.

Funny thing is, I normally like Serena (in a way) but today, with so much on the line for Maria, I lost it.

Serena was very classy at the end of the match. That was nice of her; and I'll admit, Maria should have at least acknowledged her defeated opponent, no excuses there.

Good luck in 2005, Serena! May you face Maria again, under better circumstances.

What did she say? Eurosport didn't show their speeches...

Serena is always gracious and speaks very intelligently. You can easily tell the maturity level in each player by their speeches.

Maria needs a little more polishing in presenting herself.
