Unfortunate...there goes the championship.

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

It's worth seeing awesome backhands from Justine so far.

If Serena's serve drops off Justine is going to win, she's dominating all the rallies.
You of all people shouldn't make fun of drunks.

Score??

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

Serena about to lead 5-2 3rd set but it's been a really good match. Henin's lost it physically, understandable 2 tournaments back.

Best WTA final I've seen in a couple of years I think.

5-2 it's practically over.

line judges cost the match.

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

Re: o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

True about the line judge, she would prob have won the first set if it hadn't been for that call.

Re: o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

The serve saved Serena so many times.

At 0-1 and 15-40 in that final set Justine could so easily of taken a 2-0 lead and 6 games in row.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 19 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 26 Master Series.
Nadal 15 GS, 30 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 12 GS, 5 Year End Masters, 30 Master Series.

affirmative. if you can hold serve about 90% of the time, the matches are about 1/2 won long before you step on the court.

this allows to take some chances on their serves. that is what sampras and fed have been able to do.
