Ok, I thought Maria was a one-slam wonder up until she won her next USO, then I posted something similar to this post that congratulated her and showed people that I believed she was the real deal.
Shortly thereafter, because I was a jealous "Williams" fan, I started to hate, once again. This I admit, because for some reason I had doubts about her being "legit", etc.
However, after watching her after the Clijsters match she is here to stay. Her play today was SCARY good, her defense has improved, and most importantly she is SO mentally tough on the big points- incredible.
She is going to be very, very, hard to beat in the next few years if she continues to play and improve like this.
She is here to stay.
My negative comments will now cease as I realize Maria is at the top of the tennis world, and there is nothing I can do about it.
