OMG!! i CANNOT BELIEVE THIS...I GOT BACK FROM WORK AND FOUND OUT SHE CAME BACK FROM 3 MATCH POINTS DOWN..AND SHE WON..YOU GO GIRL!!! 3 TIME SLAM CHAMP YOU ARE FIGHTER...YES I AM SHOUTING ....WITH JOY!!!!!!!!!
I'm basically speechless. I predicted Jen would win it in a much closer match this year, but I didn't want it THAT close!
omg.....my pulse is still racing. I was calling for a trainer in my living room, lol.
Sorry for Martina's fans, I know it's a hard loss.
Congrats to my fellow Cappy fans....we have been through the wringer tonight and come out smiling
As far as Jen's outburst, it hurt her definitely, but please take into account that Jen cursed, Martina broke a racket and threw another one. They are both humans and had a LOT of emotions going on. They have to get rid of them somehow, so I have no problem with them venting. Plus, like someone said on another thread, it was DAMN hot out there....they both get a pass from me this time.
Congrats Jen.....still #1 and the first #1 to win a slam in four years!!!
Nice win jenn, you showed a champions heart today ...just wish you didn't have to beat Marti . As much as I wanted Marti to win, and i am thouroughly devastated by her defeat, jennifer must be given credit for her relentless in such difficult circumstances. Well done jenn, you are a champion in your own right.
I'm SO happy!! When it got to Martinas 2nd championship point I though "oh no, she's really not going to win this..." and by the 3rd I was wondering "has anyone been championship point down and won the tournament?"
You can only think that is possible with Jen, such a fighter, such spirit. A true champion.
