It's obvious what we all want
to believe will happen tomorrow. But what do you all truly believe will
happen tomorrow? Me, I think it can
happen (we all remember their close match on the same court two years ago)... but if I had to make a pick one way or the other, I'd say it won't. I'm scared to get my hopes up only to be let down yet again. I've said numerous times that Serena is the player I detest most, and I'd love
for Maria to somehow beat her again one day. What better time than tomorrow? How sweet would it be for Maria to finally get over that hurdle on one of the biggest stages possible? Maybe this
is why Maria hasn't beaten her again just yet... maybe it was meant to happen in a grand setting such as this. I want to believe... I really do. I'm just scared it's going to be another disappointment again. But if it does
happen? Wow. No question, it will easily be the most satisfying moment (at least for me) of Maria's career next to the obvious #1 that happened back in June. Please, Maria... please do this.
As I always do for big finals such as these, I'll be waking up to watch this live... although I had to trade shifts with someone at work to make this happen. I work at a restaurant... and instead of working what is usually a peaceful, boring Saturday lunch shift, I'm now working a busy, sometimes crazy Saturday dinner shift. Don't say I don't love you, Maria.
