I'm a young girl, an old WTAWorld member.

I understand, I am so sad too.

She's not nearly as experienced as Serena and I'm sure there will be other days when it goes the other way. Roland Garos for example!

Yeah, I can see how this is disappointing, but Kim played a hell of a match against Serena tonight. I think that maybe lack of experience came into play, as well as nerves. With time, she will learn how to close these type of matches out. Believe me, I know exactly how you feel (Venus losing 3 GS finals to her little sister last year). Expect some really great matches from these two players this season.

Dammitt, Venus!!!

Same as the 99 US Open. Serving for the match, and starts with 2 double faults. If she could have just held herself together there she probably would have served it out to 6-2. Choking at 19 is not a character flaw. Kim is experienced, but she needs to be more experienced yet. She'll get her Slam, and maybe some more to go with it.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Know what you are going through, it's not easy too see your Fav losing after having matchpoint.


Have to say, Serena baby I won't bee sad if you beat Venus tomorrow coz then you surley diserve this title

BUT, GO Venus!!!

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

remember serena two years ago and see where she is now!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Tine, like you I was crying! But I'm telling myself that our Kimmie will come back stronger!
