Congratulations for getting it done while Serena is away again? :shrug:
Right. Simple fact they dare hold tournaments while Serena is away is incomprehensible.
That's why no one is watching. All are waiting for her return.
Less so some unfortunate lines person and people who hate fake interviews.

:)secret: And some people were waiting for the returns of Masha, Azarenka, Kvitova, and maybe even Bartoli/Zvonareva as they were kinda Messiah...)

They started doing it in 2011, I believe. I wish Wimbledon and Roland Garros would follow suit.

Yes AO only started it since 2011. Wimbledon improved from a half-size to a 3-quarter replica since 2008, well, hopefully one day they will give a full size. Roland Garros is really a huge disappointment. I can't find ANYTHING they do better than other GS.

This was the most important match I've ever seen! One match for Hall of Fame. A slam final between 2 of the most accomplished non slam winners.
I really hope Halep wins at least 1 major, because she belongs in the Hall of Fame. She and Caroline are carrying this tour in the era the WTA are making their most money ever
We are getting slam winners like Stephens, who is irrelevant week after week. Halep is important to the WTA and helps bring in millions

Certainly the most important win of Caroline up till now. She bounced back from being dumped by that ugly Rory, injuries and critics and winning this is such a great achievement for putting away all her burdens. So happy for her :bigclap:

A reminding for those who think Woz took a MTO at 3-4 in the third set to break Halep's momentum: Woz informed the umpire she was going to take a MTO at 3-3 before serving. Nobody was leading at that point. It could have been 4-3 for the Dane, Woz even had a game point at 40-30 on her serving game.

I remember being so happy for her when she won. From her interviews later you could see how much it meant to her. Sweet Caroline playing after her win was a tear-jerker as well.

Caro finally winning a slam here, then Halep breaking that duck at RG, and finally Kerber winning Wimbledon after her awful 2017... a lot of feel-good slam wins in 2018.

Clearly the point of the match was the one giving Caro the match point. :)
