Re: Serena: Did her French Open win cost her the Wimbledon title?
I think it's a combination. You have to give credit where it is due to Sabine's talent on grass and her great play that match. But I think Serena was mentally fatigued/ got tight. She lost the length on her ground strokes. She had 3-1 40-15 and then had love -40 to get get back on track and blew that. I still say almost all of Serena's matches are going to be won or lost on her racquet, but Sabine has to be given great credit for her play that day.
