what an ugly match

what an ugly match........
Maria's poor performance was the key........
did you notice how many easy points she failed in crucial moments?
Kim's performance didn't impress me at all

Well, everybody has the right to his or her opinion, but I thought the match was pretty good, and I'm glad for Kim that she won.

The windy/rainy court conditions in the first set made for less than stellar tennis. There really wasn't an excuse for the second set. I wouldn't rate it as being one of the best finals I've seen.

Congrats to Kim and better luck next time Maria!

No, thanks Vee! Maria's semifinal win will get me through this! And watching the top two players in the world in the final was a much better final than we've seen in Miami in recent years.

well it was a great final..........but definitely the previous 6 out of 7 (except 00' of course) were also quite spectacular and i still believe the count is serena- 3 nasdaqs venus- 3 nasdaqs and maria- 0

Too bad Kim could not have faced the player who would have given her a great match. Kim had way to many moves for Pova to count. I loved when she kept getting balls back and maria looked clueless.

That second set rocks.

Nice try maria but you failed. GO Kim!

Uh this match was good, and I am happy for Kim-- but the 01 final was way better . Even the ' 02 final was better than this as far as quality is concerned

Wow I feel the same way about the semifinal! Venus was great! She hasnt been playing that great for awhile and yet she fought the wimbledon champ and third player in the world like a true champe she is. AND she beat her sister who she hasnt beaten in YEARS.

Truly a great tournament for Venus.

the match wasn't as awful as alot of people are making it out to be. yes conditions were far from perfect but that is part of the game, and both players played the best they could in the conditions, and today kim was better. end of story.

ICAM!! I was only disappointed that Venus loss, because I had plans to go over to Miami. Other than that , I'm so impressed with her play and I have no doubt that she will be a force to be reckeoned with for the rest of the season
