    watching serena completely overpower a 6-0 big girl like azarenka or a 6-0 even bigger girl like petra kvitova, really makes one admire the way a 5-5 belgian can control serena's power with flair and control. really amazing.

    Even though the WTA was a borefest.

    Even I have to admit, Justine was one of the most exciting players, if not the most exciting to watch on either tour. Little girl packed a big punch and that backhand...

    Henin, Mauresmo, and Hingis. When will we leave the ball bashing behind and return to beautiful tennis?

    It was, indeed, amazing. And that was a great match.

    It's apparent how much bigger Serena serves now.

    true. Her lack in movement has been compensated with a bigger serve. 24 aces today, in a two sets win against Azarenka.

    I really can't abide Williams, however, my opinion of henin changed after this incident. And her timely use of bathroom breaks only compounded my opinion that she was a cheat. Frankly, it diminishes her many illustrious accomplishments in my eyes. I greatly prefer her countrywoman.
