Today's matches were so much better than the Wimbledon semis !!!
Both Lindsay and Amelie believed in their chances and played their best tennis, their effort was amazing !
And of course the same goes for Venus and Serena. Although they had a few lapses, they showed their best tennis when they needed it. Mentally they are the toughest players at the moment, and especially Serena.
IMO the 2nd set of Serena vs. Lindsay was one of the best sets I have seen, and I'm very careful with those superlatives.
I'm very happy that Amelie wasn't influenced by her nerves today (maybe apart from that one double-fault). And I'm also happy that Lindsay is now back at her best and also was believing in her chances. I hope that they later remember the good things about their matches and not that they lost.
And finally I'm happy that I couldn't recognize any 'total Williams domination' today. I think the players have realized that Venus and Serena are the standard right now and that there is a lot of work to do for them, and it seems that they are willing to do this work.
So no reason to fear boredom in future times.
