Okay, first I want to say, as a blatant, unapologetic NON Justine fan...,
Congrats Justine, you truly are a special tennis player! You really took advantage and took it to Serena in that first set and hung tough through out!! You showed class in the end and, while I still am not yet a fan, I'm softening my hard line towards you (
as if you cared).
Now the BIG NEWS (at least for me) the other night, my wife and I had our FIRST CHILD, a baby girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's IN-FRIGGIN'-CREDIBLE!!!! So it's been hard to keep up with the tourny, as you can imagine!! But I couldn't help but feeling like Serena's win was kind of icing on top of this delicious cake I'm eating!!!!!!
Serena scared the CRAP out of me when I saw the score from the 1st set. I'm so glad I didn't watch the set played in realtime. Talk about a slow train wreck.
Justine really surprised me in how quickly she got off to a good start. I actually thought it would be the other way around, ie, Serena (having had arguably tougher competition) would get off to a quick start and make Justine play catch up. But credit Justine for taking FULL advantage of Serena's serving woes and doing EXACTLY what needs to be done against Serena get out in front asap and make Serena play catch up.
Anyway, congrats to both girls, but especially Serena and the loyal WS fans Faithful!!!!
This has turned out to be a wonderous week for me- a week of new beginnings!!!
