Loved it. Lots of tension. Unique set of circumstances contributed to that.

It was just a question of Serena keeping her level up (and moving her feet). She's developed an assortment of weapons, and was actually playing the stronger, more controlled, mid-percentage aggressive game. Henin's strategy was quite high risk. Great when it worked during that span from the end of the 2nd set to the very beginning of the 3rd, but goodness: even Steffi or Roger couldn't keep that up. Especially against a quality opponent that began to move her feet again and hit with conviction.

A good preview of what we hope to get this season. Both, hopefully, will get used to playing each other in GS finals.

PS: The only consistently poor performance of the day was Mary Carillo's. Once Serena started to get a hold of that 3rd set, she started babbling like a nervous grad student: "Serena should play with more passion, like this, more often. She should care more about the other tournaments. This is the reason she is not ranked #1."

ESPN post-match courtside interview:
(a) tough to play again against Justine, she plays uniquely and very well
(b) on 3rd set, yeah I just had to "man up"
(c) started serving a little bit better, I mean, I almost hit her once with one of my serves (laugh)
(d) so cool to tie BJK, to even be mentioned in the same breath with her, now focused on doing some of what she did off the court!

Congratulations, Serverena.

Go work on your serve Justine. Also, that whole overhitting on Serena's second serve doesn't really work, especially since you can't return her first serve.
Last 4 games of the second set was phenomenal though.

The more spectacular play came from Henin, but she sadly ran out of gas towards the end. Well done to Serena, she was rock-solid pretty much the whole way through, particularly on serve.

Maybe not the classic we wanted, but it was very high-quality. Henin will definitely win a Slam this year.

Jan 30th, 2010, 09:53 AM
Henin's serve and all those stupid errors cost her the match. Serve was a disastuh. For me, the most infuriating thing was how mindlessly she stuck to her "all aggression" gameplan when it was clearly costing her. Hope she reconsiders playing like that, otherwise she's no different than the other girls on tour, only shorter.

Congrats to Serena, who played amazing on bp and picked it up when she needed to.

Given the last few years of grand slam finals, I don't really see how you can call this a "poor match." There was largely high quality play, coupled with unpredictable momentum shifts and exciting storylines. It surely wasn't an all time classic, but it was definitely a solid Grand Slam final.

It may have been three sets, but it was a boring as fuck final.

Only high quality aspects, Serenas serve (no doubt would have lost without it) and the run of 5 games from Justine. The rest of the match comprised of errors, chockes, frames and wild shots into the stands.

Congrats Serena, bad luck Justine.

Neither played all that well. But it was wonderful to see Serena fight it out.

Holding serve at 0-1 in the third after facing BPs (and a string of insane play from Henin) won her the match.

Some good patches but overall not a great quality match despite the drama.3rd set was a hot mess : looked like Safina had been cloned and teleported on the court.
Serena dealt way better with the pressure at the end though, while Justine's game just felt appart.

Serena's movements were :o but she really has the best serve of all time.12 aces again today, and so usefull at crucial moments.

Justine needs to figure out how to deal with Serena's 2nd serve instead of putting ALL of them wide

With thinking so should have Serena and should have converted those bps in the 2nd.:help: You know, both ladies are champions for a reason, and both ladies have things that they can and will improve on. :wavey:

The atmosphere was sooo dramatic, and I think over shadowed some really good rallies and games. Having said that I am glad that Serena regained her composure and game after the disappointing end to the 2nd set.

Justine I felt acquitted herself well. Serena just was able to kick it into another gear when she had to.

Congrats on your 12th gs trophy Serena, defending your '09 title, and remaining #1 in the world.

IMO this AO, singles and doubles, demonstrated GOATrena! I can't think of a player who undertook more pressure in both draws, and won as she did. She put in a hell of a lot of work this fortnight!

Great job, Justine! Well fought, and I'm certainly fearful that the Venus Williams Rosewater dish will be greater disputed...

Jan 30th, 2010, 10:10 AM
That was a pretty bad match. :lol: Three sets doesn't automatically mean it was great quality. There was certainly tension though.

Congrats to Serena. True champion, and very respectful of Justine. I think, as always, her serve played a big part in this win. She found it in that final set it was phenomenal, especially in that final game. Not very solid off the ground at all though, and even when a rally eventuated (which was pretty rare) Serena didn't really get on top. Justine held her own, which surprised me.

Well done to Justine on a great fortnight. Didn't play great tonight, but that's good news for the future. Her serve was very ordinary. The first serve deserted her, except for that 5-game stretch where she played out of her mind. That was the only quality tennis I saw tonight. She made everything. I don't know why she decided that every time Serena would send a second serve to Henin's BH on the deuce court; Henin would attack it, and try to hit hard, deep and right up the middle and follow it in EVERY TIME. This just did not work. I understand her sentiment, cut off the angle, get an easy volley, but it just didn't happen the entire match. Serena's second serve is too big, and she could hardly keep the ball in play. She needs to work on her serve, and her volleys, if she wants to win Wimbledon.

Well done to both girls, and hopefully the level only goes up for the rest of 2010. :)

Then, her first serve was gone again, and she lost the momentum.

Also, Serena served aces at big points, I just hate her gameplay, the match shows me why Justine is my fave ever, and why I can't stand watching Serena playing.

All in all, it was a good match, and both players had some killer moments. Still, that 3rd set was a bit of a mess. I think I'm on safe ground in saying that it won't take too long for both of them to deliver better 2nd week GS matches this year. Justine really has had a strong and impressive comeback so far though. Serena really dropped off from her 1st set level, but as the cliche goes, "A win's a win."

What about philanthropist (Schools in African ) and charity work.
Those are so significant to me because she's sharing the fruits of her success. :worship: :cool:

Justine did not really choke.

There was no choking. It was Serena who let Justine back into the match. Maybe she took pity on her and didn't want to humiliate her too much. After all, didn't Justine run away from the game? Serena was just being nice to allow Henin to win a set.

Yes, Coetzer was in the box for the semis too. She was on Eurosport saying she was a guest of the Williams' this year. Came across really well, very modest about her achievements. I didn't know she was a mother now.

Congrats Serena!:cheer::woohoo:

What a final! Both players played well. Both really deserved to be the finalist. But at the end, the better player won. Congrats also for Henin. She has a good comeback. Australian Open is really great! Congrats again for both players!:)

:help:

Please remind me when was the last time a Slam final went on three sets ?

3 sets doesn't necessarily mean spicy, and from the sounds of it people didn't really think the match was all that. :sarcastic:
