Thanks for this thread
Who could forget this match. I saw the draw and hoped Grahame would get a game. I was impressed when she pushed Serena in the 1st set, however she continued that form as well as her splendid serving in which many times Serena was moving the wrong way and was deceived. As usual in her early days, whenever Serena fell behind against someone she should beat, she always ran around grimacing in pain and this was the case again. Serena I though was choking big time (and not injured) and unfortunately at 4 all in the 3rd Grahame just couldn’t capitilise on this.
I laughed when Serena reached 4-2 or 3-1 she smacked a backhand winner and said to Grahame ‘that’s my best shot’. Grahame didn’t give her a 2nd look and it was funny that Serena had to resort to some gamesmanship to beat the then no. 280 in the world.
Ausboy said that she would’ve reached 130 with that win, it would’ve been interesting because if Amanda won she would’ve faced Nicole Pratt in rnd 2!
There's more to life than just being happy.
