Hi Janie! I'm glad you're back to share in this great moment. I am happy about finally having a female Russian grand slam champion. But I will be sad for the runner up because she will be heartbroken about losing the final.
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
I think the runner-up will be fine, because neither of them expected to get so far. I mean, she will be partly sad but partly still pretty excited, I think. And she will know that her old friend was the winner, which helps, too.
And they both know there are many opportunities still ahead for them, at age 22!
