Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen
According to TheBoiledEgg's ranking update thread, Serena will lead Li by 2210 points when the new rankings come out Monday.
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
