What an awful women's final. 

I think the 'new girl' earned her spot...I'm interested to see if it will be competitive or if one will fizzle and it'll be a blowout.  

 

I'm worried now about Serena's chances for another Grand Slam title.  Achilles is an awful injury and tends to be chronic  I would have thought all the time off would have helped but when it's your legs and especially something like a hamstring, calf, achilles...just walking aggravates it.  

 

I didn't watch the early rounds and just saw Madison Keys went out in the first round.  Good Lord.  I just don't think she's ever going to win a Slam now.  Too many good players now with new ones coming up and she manages to lose to people she should not be losing to.  If there ever was a player that was more like Lindsay Davenport I've never seen one, only Lindsay eventually did win.  I don't think Madison will.  Even much shorter players have a bigger serve now.

Madison keys is trash. So much talent being wasted.

And I'll add Sloane....WTF is up with her? She made two finals and won one but now loses to unknowns....she looks miserable on court.

Novak had match point and just completely came unglued. 

 

I'm now becoming unglued.

Novak got it done, but man. This is a guy who was wearing a huge neck bandage and was complaining about his elbow a couple days ago. He didn’t need to take the scenic route today, especially with Rafa being much more efficient against Diego.

That shadow on Chatrier makes the match unwatchable.


Cloud clover is helping. This is actually pretty entertaining. Some very aggressive play.

What a sh!tty final. Sofia dirty tactics nor her dad yelling at her worked. 

 

I still have no clue who this sh!tty winner is. Let's hope we don't see her or Sofia in any final again.

Deep down, you know Aga has got to feel some kind of way.

I thought it was a fun match, and I’m glad to see someone new win a major. She played really confident tennis.

 

 

 

The women's side always has new champions. It's the men's side that is in desperate need of new champions.
