Post Serena Williams WINS 2001 Sanex Championships!

Unfortunately. Lindsay Davenport was forced to withdraw from the final because of injuring her knee in the third set tiebreak of her semi-final match vs. Kim Clijsters.

We wish her a FULL and speedy recovery... don't we. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

<br />Nevertheless.. <font size=+2 color=magenta face=EraserDust> Serena Williams,</font><br />is <font color=indigo> The Last Woman Standing.</font>

(An interview question for the winner...)

Q. Is it weird to make that much money without playing for it?

SERENA WILLIAMS: I worked for it years ago, years and years ago. I definitely worked for it and I earned it. Would you feel weird if I gave you a check? Come on (laughter)? I'm ready to accept.

GOOD ANSWER, SERENA! You were the last woman standing, and you won it, just like we were hoping!

You work hard for your money. You go, Serena!!!<br />Congratulations! Mo' money, mo' money.... <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />
