Congratulations to Serena on a great year of tennis and the Serena slam!
Serena Williams has had a remarkable year of tennis since last years French Open!
Losing today is only a bump in the road for Serena. Sure the ever suspect French crowd, slow red clay courts(her worst surface) and the talented and tenacious Justine Henin were too much for her to over come today. Even though she had her chances.
Serena's great tennis and her Serena Slam which will live on in the tennis history books has carried women's tennis for the last year!
She didn't win today. But she played with the heart of a champion! And it's that champions heart that enabled her to stage her remarkable 1-5 finals set comeback against Kim Clijsters in this years Australian Open that led her to the Serena Slam. Serena has really shown she really is a great player in the last year. And she is well on her way to becoming an all time great women's tennis player. There are going to be bumps in the road for her. And today was one of those bumps in the road. I'm sure she is very upset about this loss. And she will most likely take her frustration out on her opponents at Wimbledon!
And I feel sorry for her opponents at Wimbledon. Because Serena will most likely steamroll everyone on the way to another Wimbledon title!
Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
