Whatever the outcome, this match has certainly lived up to its expectations.

Beautiful tennis, drama, tension, changing momentum...Women's tennis can be really beautiful.

Well done to both!

Agreed.

I'm already excited about the prospect of their next encounter which will probably take place in about four years.

I just hope no matter what happens everyone can keep it classy.

Re: Whatever the outcome, this match has certainly lived up to its expectations.

I totally agree. Justine is number one for a reason - and win or lose - she showed just how good she is today. Even Serena acknowledges that Justine is playing the best tennis on tour. I still think Serena will close the gap this year, but there's no denying that Justine was simly outplaying Serena in the early going. I'm excited to see them play some more this year!

Not really beautiful tennis, but great drama and fight from both. Serena's wins over Justine have all been in straight sets. Will this one be different?

Too bad I havn't been able to watch it because of the very "talented" technicians at the ATP Masters Series T.V. website.

Re: Whatever the outcome, this match has certainly lived up to its expectations.

I really like how these two play the game. I mean Serena kept fighting to win one point at 5 -0 down, how many of the other players do that? Justine, just unbelievable tennis. First women's final in a while that have really been competitve.

Nah, I hope we see them duking it out at RG 07.

Not to mention, these are two of the best athletes outside of Venus, Kim, Amelie, Sveta, and Lena D. the sport has to offer.
