Rennae Stubbs' Final Blog From Wimbledon

Rennae Stubbs' Blog

July 06, 2009

LONDON, UK - Rennae Stubbs has had some of her greatest moments at Wimbledon - winning the grass court Grand Slam title twice, in 2001 with Lisa Raymond and in 2004 with Cara Black. This year she'll go for a third with fellow Australian Samantha Stosur, and write the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Blog along the way.

Hi everyone and welcome to the last and final blog from Wimbledon.

Sorry I havent written in a few days, I have been a little busy packing up my apartment here at Wimbledon and getting all the last minute things together, as well as being a little tired yesterday! So, unfortunately we lost in the final, but it was a great match and the atmosphere was awesome! The Williams siters were just a little better on the big points on Saturday and that's all it takes sometimes, but like I said, it was a privilege to walk onto Centre Court and play a final again here at Wimbledon and be watched by the best fans in tennis. They just love the doubles here and even some familiar faces like Billie Jean King... it was so cool to see her up there watching us play, it just makes me try even harder! We had some fun points and in the end it was a memorable match and tourmanent. Sam and I took all our friends and support group out after we finally did our drug testing. If only you guys knew what we do after matches! Here are me, Sam, Serena and Venus all sitting around after press, sitting in this little office area, waiting to do our drug testing, but no one could go! It was funny! I went first, thank God... then we went for a LATE dinner, then again I did end up dancing with Serena and Venus at the only venue open after midnight in Wimbledon Village, and I think I managed to sneak out and not pay them for the drinks they bought me, fair is fair right! Winners should always pay! Ha ha...

Serena was way too good on the day in singles earlier. She was serving unbelievably all day, trust me I saw enough of them go by me at 120 miles an hour, and she was a little mentally tougher than Venus in the end, a suprise in some way, but on the other hand, it must be so diffcult to play your sister at your best all the time, and Venus looked very flat and not at her best for sure. Credit Serena though, she was flawless.

The men's final yesterday was a heartbreaker for Andy Roddick and I was so sad for him in the end. Roger is a great champion and proved why he will go down as the best ever. Fifteen Grand Slams proves it now. But I hope Andy Roddick comes back here one day and gets to hold that trophy he so desparetly wants, because after yesterday, I have never seen anyone deserve it more. He was so humble and gracious after the match and I am proud to call him a friend. I was never more proud of him yesterday. Keep your head up Andy, one day it will happen.

Okay everyone, well it's been fun letting you in on my daily life and grind here at Wimbledon. I hope to do it one day again soon. Have a terrific summer and see you all back for the US OPEN! NY here we come! But for now, as they say here in England... CHEERS! I am off to get on my flight to Washington for World Team Tennis. Come watch if you get a chance, I am playing for the Washington Kastles... adios!

Rennae

Some very nice words from Rennae about Serena and Andy . I hope Stubsy plays another year on tour. She has clearly proven that she can still play with the best in the world at age 38

Re: Rennae Stubbs' Final Blog From Wimbledon

Epic blog. I have never liked Stubbs before, but this blog is awesome. She really is an intelligent, outspoken individual, and I think she just puts her foot in her mouth sometimes. Nice sense of humour too. Anyone want to draw a cartoon of her, Sam, V and S all trying to pee in cups?

Re: Rennae Stubbs' Final Blog From Wimbledon

I absolutely love Rennae and soooooooo hope she is around for at least anither year! I met her and Sam in Eastbourne this year, they are both so nice.

I have loved reading Rennae's blogs for the past fortnight.

Thanks for the memories

Never really cared for her but this blog helps a bit.

Loved the part about making S&V pay for her drinks.

Love this women! Cheers for the blog Rennae, more fun than the usual blogs on there @ the drug testing thing.

Yeah I hope she keeps on playing, such a great character and fun to watch. That doubles final was excellent.

Re: Rennae Stubbs' Final Blog From Wimbledon

This is hilarious. She is quite the personnality but also very-well spoken.

People always mention how the sisters are mean and not approachable by the other players, but we just got another proof that it ain't true.
