... Or at least respects her a lot because she's so happy for her etc.

Looking back to the US Open 2001 (which was actually the only slam final Serena has lost aside from today), she didn't even seem that happy at losing to Venus. Does anyone remember? Like she was slamming her racquet and looking sullen etc.

So I think that that likeness for Maria resulted in her not fighting so hard out there. It's like she's enjoying losing to Maria. She should be hating this and Maria. :fiery:

Venus is the player she likes to lose to the least. She's happy for her, but she's extremely disappointed.

Perhaps she's had public relations lessons. Anyway I want to see the old Serena looks of death and contempt.

Are you kidding??? Of course Serena tried to fight! Maria just DIDNT LET HER!! You even saw Serena shaking her head..she was purely beaten fair and square..no excuses..

But I agree Serena was very happy for Maria because she knows EXACTLY how Maria feels winning her 1st grand slam as a teenager..

I saw storm in Serena's face when Masha hit the ball to her nose.

Serena has matured so much since 2001. She is now a gracious lady and know how to handle this situation. But I have to say Maria gave Serena a few death stare in the match LOL
