Um, it's all over the BBC web site, so I am sure someone has seen it by now. But true, if you are hoping to watch the match later, I don't want to ruin your serenity.

Man, I think the winner is Serena's shorts. Those things were defying physics. I've seen thicker paint.

I've never seen a tank in a final of a major before. Lindsay just collapsed. I didn't think a number one in any sport could be on such a fine line. Guess we're all human after all...

I could hardly believe the writer when I saw that Davenport won the first four games but ended by losing the last nine. That is one craptacular finish.

In my youth I have tanked a few matches, angry at myself for netting an easy putaway or something stupid. I still hate myself for giving up back then, and I believe she will feel the same way for the rest of her life. That's a tough place to be, fighting internal battles. At first my heart went out to her, then I was just pissed. Love in the third set of a major?. Get over yourself and play.

Mary Carrillo and the short bald commentator were so down on her while she was playing The Russian. The commentators forgot the injuries that both the Williams sisters have been fighting through. I get tired of the commentators Floping back and forth. Serena made them eat crow at the end. WAY TO GO SERENA!!!!!
