I'm disappointed, I thought this was going to be an exciting match but I thought it was very boring

i agree this isn't the best match ever, i also agree that it's a poor match, not exciting at all, but you can't say justine didn't play well in the first ... IMO justine played a very very good first set

The embrace at the end was nice.
I feel sorry for Kim and strangely for Lleyton!

All in all, a big hand for Justine!

I just finished chewing paper.

Isn't a change the crowd was well behaved today! I wonder why! Those of you who are behaviorists, can you explain?

Ok, you don't have to be a behaviorist, just give your take.

For me it was a very exciting final but of course i'm a Justine fan. First set was high level play of Justine but she was of course dominating and i can imagine if you're no Justine fan that this isn't what you were hoping for. Second set was a tad more exciting but the level dropped a bit so yeah... For someone who isn't a fan, this wasn't a very interesting final.

My take :
1)The Belgian girls are HUMBLE and MODEST about their achievements .

2)They don't go around telling everyone that "NO ONE CAN BEAT US WHEN I AM PLAYING AT MY BEST " .

3)Neither of them have an annoying dad .

4). They know its ONLY a tennis match and life goes on even after you lose a few here and there .

In short, they are AFFABLE individuals who DON'T THINK they are "God's GIFT " to mankind .

boring boring final with two of the most boring players on the top 10.. in terms of personalities..
but justine won, and it seems Serena was more of a competition for her than her fellow and more in form on clay...

and last years final was much much better


serena
townsend × rezaï × lisicki × vesnina
keys × mladenovic × siniakova × jankovic
