Today I spent more than 4 hours in tennis heaven!
What a great afternoon. I was lucky enough to be able to watch the two Berlin semi finals on TV, with co comment of the lovely Dominique Van Roost.
It's great that both Justine and Kim won their matches but I would not even have cared too much if they lost because I saw FANTASTIC tennis. I think Kim, Jen, Justine and AmÚlie played awesome most of the time and their were some superb points.
Kim was awesome in the first set but during the second set Jen decided to put her teeth in Kim's skirt and did not want to let Kim go until Kim managed to eventually free herself. I have no clue how Kim managed to win this match, she probably does not know it herself.
While Kim and Jen were firing baseline rockets to each other, AmÚlie and Justine came often to the net and there were some crazy exchanges that will probably be entered in the study books about tennis as they contained lobs, volleys, overheads, smashs. The audience was hysterical and I have to say I was at some points screaming in front of my television. Justine was serving well and her body language showed how much confidence she has for the moment.
I love to see how these players keep improving (in the case of Justine and Kim) or come back after injury or a lesser period.
Well, I have to come off my tennis cloud now to do some shopping.
2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
