Maria deserves it and I'm also glad that Errani didn't embarrass herself. She played a good match, Maria just was better. Those returns were jaw dropping. And that running forehand at 30-30 (I think) was just orgasmic.
Anyway - enjoy the moment Maria fans. You guys deserve it for sticking with your girl when things didn't go well a few years ago, which is something I always respect. And Maria deserves it because she has the heart of a lioness.
Thank you four your nice words!
