Re: Open your umbrellas! Grass season has started!

I didn't get to watch the match thanks to work but was watching the scores. When Aga went up 3-0 in the third I let out a sign of relief. I knew Marion had gone through and was well aware of their head to head. I was excited for Saturday to roll around. So I continued on with boring work. Later on I put on the results page and my mouth dropped when I noticed Sabine had won.

I don't think we should be too hard on Aga as she is clearly pretty pissed off with herself over this loss. For her this is probably the worst loss of her career. Even more so then Wimbledon Final last year given she was against Serena.

She needs to just keep working away. It is true opportunities like that arise very rarely but when she is in the correct mind frame and is physically fit she can benefit from them. Clearly from her slam results this year she is taking the slams more serious. She wants ones more than ever.

Credit to Sabine of course who played the tournament of her life. Her path to the final compared to Marion was extraordinary.

4-6 6-2 7-9. Heartbreaking loss in SF !

This was such a huge chance to win a Grand Slam. And I`m sure Aga would have beaten Bartoli in Wimbledon final, Head To Head is 7-0 and she knows how to play Bartoli. Not sure if she ever gets such a big chance again. Aga would not have frozen like Lisicki. Very frustrating loss. And Aga was leading 3-0 in 3rd set, and 2 points away from final. The serve made the difference in 3rd set. Simply too weak from Aga. This is the most painful loss in her career so far, and Aga will always think back to this match if she never wins Wimbledon (or a Grand Slam).

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

I just guess it will make her more motivated to finally reach QF of US Open.
