Justine gave a very classy speech!

Probably the best I have heard from her. She was very positive and optimistic, even in defeat.

Its tough not to be proud of Amelie today. She really overcame the mental demons and deserved this title.

Justine was very gracious, she also shook her head when Amelie said she might have been tired. Its like she didn't want an excuse for losing.

She said that Amelie won because she just played better than her, and that she'll be back next year, she also thanked her entourage as well as all of her fans. Amelie tried to make an excuse for JHH as to why she lost (from playing too much), but Justine just shook her head, because she didn't want an excuse for why she lost. Gracious speeches from both! :)

Very nice from both of them. Justine essentially said she's had a great run at Wimbledon, she's happy with a final, and that as hard as she tried, Amelie took her opportunities, and was too good.

And Amelie said now people could stop talking about her nerves :)

Justine:
"There's nothing else to say: she was better than me on the day and she took her chances"

"I am pretty tired after winning the French Open and Eastbourne but it's been a good few weeks and even here, I had a very good time.

"It's been very positive and I'll be back and get my chance another time."


Amelie:
"I definitely wanted this win today and I don't want anybody to talk about my nerves anymore"

"This trophy is so special in the world of tennis and it feels great."

This is perhaps the best slam final in a while. Both players had said they will focus on tennis and they did. The match was excellent. Good variaties and no screaming. And good positive speeches from both. As a Justine fan, I can live with the result and congratulations to Amelie, too!

Last year's Wimby final was about as good in terms of tennis. But, it put a downer at the end when Lindsay looked like she's about to kill herself after the defeat. It's a relief that this year's final ended well.

They were both very gracious - even though she didn't really seem amicable towards each other.
