Why I like power tennis

If you saw the Miami final, you know why. That's power tennis. There's no rule that says power players have to be six feet tall or never leave the baseline.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I loved how Serena how put her body into a lot of her shots, which directed the ball perfectly. The way she bent down for one of her backhands close to the net shows how well she measured her shot. And I have admit, I'm appreciated Justine's backhand more and more everyday. Props to both of them but of course more props to Serena.

It really was a great match!

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

I agree. I'd just like to add IMO, the womens final was much more entertaining than the men's. Over looking the fact that Nole won, it was pretty dull i thought.
