AO Day Thirteen: It Is Defended

Posted by gauloises1 on January 30, 2010

Serena Williams d. Justine Henin, 64 36 62

A fun final with some great tennis from both at times. Justine looked a little nervous in the first set, but when Serena had break points against her at the beginning of the second, she suddenly found her backhand down the line, started reading Serena’s serve, and rolled through the rest of the set. The beginning of the third was closely contested, but it looked like Justine ran out of steam while Serena could have gone on for days. She served brilliantly and played a really composed match. Good job.

With this win, Serena’s twelfth Slam, she tied Billie Jean King. Nice. Congratulations to her and her G and so forth.

    secretly deep down didnt we all know this would be the trophy shot we’d all see at the end of the match? personally i couldnt care less but i have a feeling i would have been slightly annoyed if henin won because she really boring and you cant just retire and then think “oh no you know what i wanna play again..let me back in!!”
