Strange Days

4/8/05 8:23 PM


Hello everyone,

I need to debrief. Didn’t come out the victor in my second match today. I played great in the first set and decent in the second and third.
I had five break points in the second and the third sets that I did not convert. This really was a match that I should have won, but despite feeling disappointed I really feel like all the hard work and dedication and my never say die attitude is paying off. Today I felt really comfortable out there, and my 'Hail Mary' shots were all in tact. I hit some great shots and my signature swing volley is coming naturally.

I think my big mistake today was rushing my shots. When the points got close or when I had chances I rushed and did not stay calm. Granted my opponent played some good shots at times but I really should have capitalized. I am getting better and better, my serve rocks and my second serve really rocks. I am on the verge of even greater things. Now I just have to deal with the bitterness and disbelief that comes with such losses. I am willing to move forward and leave this day behind. Tomorrow is a new day, I am going to make it even better than today was!

V

Finally, a troll who posts just to be "anti-Williams" who actually has a sense of humour. As of now, I'm finding your anti-Williams posts pretty funny.

yes she knew that she was going to have a great first set, and then planned to "tank" the next 2... brilliant strategy.

V, great match i know you'll be tearing up RG!

How could that be true? She's talking about 5 breakpoints, about a 3-set match every set of which she played at a different level, she's talking about her second serve which WAS really good today (an 58 winning % on second serve points is very good) so I don't think she prepared it, though it seems very quick... A bit funny too that she states her second serve to "totally rock"

This is so cool of her to really write in her website. Alot of players
fake it; and have a pr person do it. Ok- so now I know Venus and
Justine really do something for their official websites.
