Now, that was a great Williams final!

And their finals will keep getting better and better.

Lots of emotions during and after! Great shots! Oh boy!

Congrats to both girls! Extra bravo to Rena, the new champ, the new #1!

Nah, that was a GOOD Williams final. Too uneven for it to be 'great'. However, I'm already stocking up extra video for the US Open final. If Venus can get herself together emotionally ....

Proud to be an American
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 am so freaking sad.. now I'm having bad vibes against Serena.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

It was a good match, the shots were unbelievable. Serena played a lot better and deserved to win.

Well, I didn't fall asleep to it this time. It is getting better. Too bad Venus didn't play better. I'm not sure what's going on w/her serve when she plays Serena, but some of her doubles were downright ugly today.

I thought it was a great final! Unfortunately, I didn't get the outcome I wanted; but, I am very happy for Serena. Both John MacEnroe and Chris Evert said that it was a competitive match (I liked their comments today--they were good).

It will only get better, but I don't know if I will (gosh I'm sad ). I am also starting to look at Serena as the competition. I suppose that all of these matches between the Sisters are forcing me to choose sides. Venus, please get back on top!!!!!!!!!

Venus and Serena are sitting on top of the WORLD

Beat: about the 1 ace from Venus -- Venus was holding her shoulder and she kept stretching her neck -- i think she was in some kind of pain. she should have called for a trainer.

but still this was their best and most compettive match since Litpton's '99. it does keep getting better. i think Venus needs to see someone about her energy problem. she just looks like she is so drained half the time. against anyone else she would have won anyway but not against an over-energised Serena.

Did Venus have any aces against Henin in the semis? I seem to remember her serving well, just not aces. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I have CDO. It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, except in alphabetical order like it should be.

Venus has to go home and work on her serve. Its big but inconsistent. She doesnt own the down the middle serve like Serena.

Against most people, she can get away with her second serve, because she knows she is better in the rally, but she was going for alot against Rena.

She doesnt keep her left hand up long enuf and she tends to fall off to the side instead of into the court.

anyway...congrats to Rena but still

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

Beat---How many aces did venus have against Henin?

I enjoyed this match! I just wish Venus would've won the first set! She really looked down at the start of the 2nd set. I think Venus needs to add a different weapon to her game to be competitive verses Serena like a serve and volley game or something. Its on to the US Open, Oh Boy!
