I am so happy right now :bounce: :bounce:

What an amazing performace by Justine in the last 2 matches, she is without a doubt the player with the biggest heart, resolve and fighting spirit. A lot of people can hit a tennis ball hard, fewer have real talent, but ony a very few greats have the grit, determination and courage to never give up and find a way to win no matter what. Sampras had it in spades, so does Justine. And its fitting that they both have excellent all court games.

I would like to share this poem and dedicate it to her - she embodies it.

Invitcus - by William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul


:worship: And good luck Justine, you have many more slams and fans to win :worship:
