Wimbledon 2013: Most classy trophy presentation ever?

I have to say the amount of respect between Marion and Sabine was outstanding. Sabine almost crying but giving full credit to Marion, Marion cheering Sabine on and saying that she will have another chance, the hugs, walking off court arm in arm. That was SO good to see. Hats off!

The most emotional moment in tennis. I'm in tears. We should have new finalists in a slam more often.

Re: Wimbledon 2013: Most classy trophy presentation ever?

Yeah. It's one of the few times I felt everything said from both women was honest and from the heart. Their hug was great. Marion hugging her dad. Sabine smiling through the tears..

Re: Wimbledon 2013: Most classy trophy presentation ever?

Marion paying tribute first to her father was a touching moment. You could sense her showing "I had to do what is best (find a new team), but I will never forget what we went through together".

Agree with all of this. Very genuine reactions from both. So so nice to see

Re: Wimbledon 2013: Most classy trophy presentation ever?

We needed the Duchess of Kent to have another iconic crying-on-shoulder moment.

I loved the ceremony. More lower ranked players should reach slam finals.
The top players have too much of a sense of entitlement to appreciate a moment like this on this level.

Agreed. It was so nice and refreshing to see such great sportsmanship and respect from both ladies. Such a classy end to the craziness of this year's Wimbledon.

Re: Wimbledon 2013: Most classy trophy presentation ever?

Great ceremony. Lovely Marion. But all props to Sabine. Being a gracious winner is easy, being a gracious loser is really hard, especially when you just lost your first Slam final at your favorite tournament, on your favorite court and you have got yourself to blame for not really making it competitive.
