I wasn’t watching a lot of the French Open due to timing and no longer having the Tennis Channel but I follow enough sports on the Fb and the Twitter to hear that Serena Williwams was kicking ass all over croissantville. I finally got a chance to watch her semi final match which, in 46 minutes, wasn’t much of a match.
I was a bit concerned about her finals match against Maria Sharapova. They have enough history to know that Sharapova is tenacious, even when she’s seemingly down and out. Since I had a busy Saturday morning and things to do around the house after, we taped the match to watch after lunch. I stayed off the FB and off the Tweets to ensure that I didn’t get wind of the winner.
After last year’s first round sayonara, her win was a great comback. Honestly, this entire last year has been a great comeback. Mental toughness, she haz it. It was a great match and in no way did Serena walk away with the title. Sharapova made sure she worked hard for it and it was fun to watch.
Congrats also to Rafael Nadal who won his 8th French Open title. He’s also come back from major injury (and five hour match on Friday) to win.
His was also a great match and though he comes off very humble and sweet at match end interviews, his game face is a good one. All work, play later.
If you’re an Olympic champion then they have to wait four more years to get you again.
