I think I might need a few days to recover from those near heart attacks I had tonight.
For me Wimbledon 2008 Finale was the best match I've ever seen because both players were on the top of what they can play at that moment and I never forget the tiebreak of set 4 with that incredible two points (maybe the 2 best points of the tournament), first from Rafa to get the matchpoint and then a world class backhand from Federer!

Today, Nole was not on court (I think because of the last match) during set 1. But the intensity, the crowd, the fighting players, what a match! Nadal is such a hero and he never gives up, what a champion. Despite Nole wins it 6 or 7 times in a row against Nadal. Awesome!

That is why we all love Tennis

To get more on topic, let's hope Sabine will show us in the future some Grand Slam finals. The one question is, how many of Sabine Fans get a heart attack during her finale, because we cheer so much with her.

Sabine has the tools to reach and win slam finals, let's be patient.

Goodness, I might have some sort of breakdown if Sabine had to play a match like that tonight. Nole is my favourite ATP player, Sabine obviously one of my WTA faves (her and Kimmy share that honour) but I always get more uptight during the WTA matches for some reason. And tonight nearly sent me over the edge. It's a scary thought. I clearly love this sport too much.

I feel the same. I think there is an unpredictability with the women's game that arguably makes it more exciting to watch than the men's which, while you get epic matches occasionally, is always going to be the 3 or 4 guys fighting for the top trophies, but with the women's it's often anyone's guess.

Sabine's matches at the Aus Open were an absolute rollercoaster, I feel alot less relaxed watching her than Andy because I want her to win so badly! I'm not sure if she was carrying an injury over from the previous tournament but the changes in momentum against the Swiss player and Kuznetsova were unreal, she definitely has an uncanny way of getting through tough matches which will stand her well in future tourns, but it would be nice to see a few more straight set matches, she definitely has the power game to do it.

That`s true, but I think, now that she is healthy and feels confident, those straight set wins will come again. Like e.g. the second half of last year, while she was healthy, she regularely had very impressive wins against lower ranked players. (and also some of higher rank) It was only in the matches, where she seemed scared or at least impressed by the opponent (e.g. Serena or Svonareva) that she crumbled, no? Of course, then the illness and injuries came again, just like before the AO.
But now it seems she has the guts again... so excited about her match against Kvitova!

While I love men's tennis, what you said above is the reason why I love the WTA more. You just never know who is going to win these days because there is no dominant player at the moment. For example, the French coming up... no bloody clue who will win that (did anyone really predict Fran would win in 2010?) Where as the men, it's pretty much a guarantee it'll be either Rafa or Nole.

I think having 4 different Slam winners last year (3 of them being first time winners) has really opened up the women's draw at Slams even more than it has the past couple of years. This year could be the most unpredictable year for the WTA ever and I'm pretty excited about that.

So am I. Petra is another one of my favourite players but I want Sabine to win that match. It would be such a huge win for her. I want a battle, ladies.
