I think I've revealed this before, but the tv remote was in pieces when she lost that second set to Safina, and at the end I slid my phone up, snapped it in half, and then jumped on it.

Also I agree with this, she was the real favourite heading in to RG last year and even more so once Serena lost yet never blinked, plus you couldn't have told what she was playing for by her performances in the SF and F of RG last year. I don't think the pressure will annoy her too much... 'pressure is privilege'
