Appreciating Martina's Graciousness

As a big Jen fan (sorry) - I'd like to say what an amazing competitor she was in the Aus final. She dictated points and played some amazing shots that took my breath away.

But mainly I was very impressed with her speech. She was gracious, and it looked *so* hard and obviously she didn't want to be there, but she managed to crack a good joke

All Martina fans should be really proud of her and I really hope she can come back from this final with something positive.

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

thanks VBN but looking at your new avatar breaks my heart more.

Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift. That's why we call it present.
