Well in honor of Dinara, I am going to pop in the 09 Aus Open final. It is always good for a laugh.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Well Maria made a F and W in the first two slams of the year and then Serena won the last two ones so there isn't much of a difference is it?

Even with all those achievements she isn't 1# and rightfully so

Yes, Serena was going to win and would have won FO if she made the final & pova was her opponent. Thank your stars Rena lost to a player who would have wooped pova's ass had spova met Razzano in R1. But we all know that Serena's loss was the reason pova had the luck to win. Not to worry.... next FO will come around soon enough. Just be patient!!!

at you acknowledging that Serena was indeed the favorite going into the French Open.

Too bad for you it didn't happened. Razzano had other plans in mind

Good for u..... hold tight to it till May 2013. As history shows, pova won't be winning anything again for the next 3yrs by which time she would be 28, old & sluggish like a snail. This essentially maybe her last slam.

Back to your asinine point, do u mean just like Lisciki had something to say at WB, Serena at Olympics and Vika at USO?
