I know, it is so incredibly hard to begrudge her the trophy, isn't it?
Even though it's the second year in a row that someone I was rooting for so much went out in a tight three-setter in the final
I was so incredibly disppointed when Justine put the last one out, but seeing Mauresmo so happy made me smile inspite of myself, she really is a very likeable person.
Though I must admit I thought she was being just slightly
bitchy when she made that remark about Justine being tired, it seemed like she felt that people would possibly use that as an excuse for Justine losing, and wanted to cut that off or something?
Though I'm probably being paranoid or just slightly
, and anyway it hardly matters.
So yeah congratulations Amelie!! You did an INCREDIBLE job of holding your nerve (I guess she used up her entire nervousness quota against Maria in the second, eh?
) and serving it out, especially when I'm quite sure the whole of the tennis world was thinking, "Can she finally do it?"
