I had a weird dream about Venus and Steffi last night
Okay, so I've been a huge fanatic of the WTA tour for almost 12 years now - basically since I've come to know who the great Venus Williams is. With that, I saw the domination of ASV and Graf come to an end, the rise of the "Brat" pack - Kournikova, Hingis, Venus, Serena, et. al., the rise of the Belgians, the Russians, and now the eastern Europeans and in all that, the great Monica Seles close out her career.
I've been privy to many great matches on many great stages, but I have to say, I've never had a dream like this before.
Okay, so it is the Wimbledon finale and Venus is playing Steffi (I'm assuming it's 2009). It is tied with Steffi winning the first set 6-4 and Venus winning the second set 6-4.
My dream picks up in the third (the score was posted on the TV) and it is tied 2-2 with Steffi serving. Venus is able to break her serve and goes up 3-2 running to her chair with a big smile on her face (meanwhile, I'm going freaking nuts because I'm so excited).
So, my dream skips ahead and next thing you know, Steffi has broke back for 3-3, held for 4-3 and broke again for a 5-3 lead. She is serving and wins the first to points to go up 30-0 and then Venus wins a point for 30-15. Steffi does an amazing point to go up 40-15. The crowd is going crazy and my heart is breaking. Steffi steps up to serve for the championship and all of a sudden a HUGE downpour comes cancelling play right away......and Steffi says, "Oh my GOD, not NOW!" The players run off court and then that was the end of the dream....
My only analysis is that Steffi was serving to be "queen" of Wimbledon and Venus was so close yet so far away....but there is still time for her to make it up.....who knows. And yes, I know Navratilova is awesome too -- I'm just trying to figure the dream out.
Loves of my life....
