So true. It's so much relaxing watching the replay knowing the outcome.
My heart could not take the LIVE match after she played so badly in the second set until the late comeback in the third. I felt like I've aged 3 years in 2 hours. It was not fun at all.
You were not BY YOURSELF!!!
I get like that when Serena isn't play her game. If she is playing her game, and the other player is just outright beating her, I can watch. But, that hitting into the net, slow footwork, no serve..Oh my gawd. I turned it off in the middle of the second set. Kept trying to peep back, couldn't stand it, grabbed my bicycle and went for a ride.. When I figured it was over, I started asking passerbys, who won the tennis match? Nobody knew.
Still not wanting to come back home and it is not over with, I rode another 10 miles, then came home. I asked my wife, who won? She is messing with me trying to look it up on the phone. In the meantime a computer was on nearby. I typed in usope.org,and first picture I see was Serena...Yeaaahhhh!!! I knew she had won then..
Not take a darn thing away from Vika who I think is dam good, but Serena was nervous, or for a better word, choking. She knew how important this moment was, she has the tools, and some kind of way the nerves jumped.. It was amazing to see her pull back the nerves two points away from defeat!! Serena was back to herself, result, 4 straight games, and the title..
Didn't mean to run it, but I turn that TV off quciker than a NY second. All I could think about was Vikachokee(formerly vikapower), starting thread after thread..It was a nightmare just thinking about that.
Also, I looked at the replay 3 times, and looking at for the 4th time right now.. Life is dam sweet.!! Just wanted you to know, you ain't the only sucker in town...
