Venus, Oracene and Serena cheering for Justine. :)

Did you see Oracene and Venus cheering and nodding for Justine during the trophy ceremony, especially when the guy welcomed Justine back and said good luck for the rest of her career. Venus was nodding her head and demonstrated why I love her

And Serena's congratulations for Justine.

I really think the whole feel of the Justine-Serena rivalry just feels much more dignified.

I think they've both matured. Its less snarky now.

Well, someone has to keep Serena on her toes after Venus retires this year, might as well be Justine.

I actually was really proud seeing Justine and Serena standing side-by-side like that - two great champions. And it's fitting that only they managed to break the three-set jinx.

Re: Venus, Oracene and Serena cheering for Justine. :)

Couldn't agree more. I love Serena to DEATH make no mistake but i am sometimes put off by some of the comments she has made in the past vis a vis not giving her opponents enough credit. It seems to me that Serena is gone. It's safe to say there won't be any 'she won madrid' moments and good for you Serena. I probably would have loved you still but now i love you more. I never wanna miss an opportunity to love Serena more. Love all the Billie Jean talk with Mary Jo after the trophy ceremony. Very classy. FUCKING LOVE IT! Now,if Murray beats Federer, i can die.

Even in the loss, Justine showed why she is an amazing champion. She will win more. I mean hell it was her second tournament back and she pushed Serena to 3 sets!

Serena was very generous.

Unfortunately, after some of the nice words Juju had for her the past couple of days she was decidedly terse with in her congratulations of Serena tonight. More so than necessary, imo.

I think she said something like, "Congratulations Serena. You are a REAL champion." She couldn't say more because the crowd was already cheering. But I understand what you mean. I think it may have been just a little disappointment. But I think the respect for each other is definitely there, and that excites me.
