I could see someone being happy after losing a slam final (or other big sporting event) if they didn't expect to be there like if they're young/early in their career or old/late in their career. As someone who had won 4 slams already, Venus probably wouldn't have been happy just to be in a slam final though.
That's FAR fewer points than she previously led by, but it's still a comfortable gap for now. Thanks for the info

You offer good input on the other issue,too; personally, I used to get a little pissed if my brother beat me in MONOPOLY....so you can imagine how I'd feel about a Slam final

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Don't be scared to open the door, Serena. It's not the Land Shark, it's only the doping agency
