Even though Ana lost, she should get confidence from this QF

I´m proud of her, she played her best tennis since Linz 2008!
But williams was on fire, even a 154 kmh she hit!
Ana now has a great chance of defending her title in Indian Wells!

After the match Serena said I just returned OK not any further and also said she served really bad. I thought she played very well for the first time. At least a player forced her to play her best and we saw Serena's best.

A lot of positives to take from this match

STUPID, CLASSLESS, CHEATING, ATTENTION SEEKING, LOOKS LIKE A 45 YEAR OLD, EMBARRASSMENT TO THE NO.1 RANKING, NOT TO LEAVE HER GROSS MOM OUT, GREEN GREMLIN

Ana played better, but not well (those Ugly UE and DF are just )
Hope she could be back later and find the form of RG08

We saw Serena's best sometimes. We also saw Serena double-faulting twice in a row, try to make returns without moving he feet, and volley like an amateur.

Sometimes, Serena shows up as if she intends to put out just enough effort to win a match. Ivanovic made 'just enough' a pretty high bar today, but that wasn't the Serena of the 2007 or 2009 OZ finals.

That wasn't Ivanovic's best either today, btw.

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.

Serena played well but it wasn't her best. Ana can play miles better than she did but yes it was a confidence boosting performance. This has been one of her best tourneys since winning RG.

She played some great points but Serena was just amazing.
