So the first Grand Slam event of the year has just finished. Well, not really. The Australian Open concluded days ago so bare with me for being such a terrible blogger and posting this entry waaay too late.
- Kudos to Serena Williams for bagging her 10th Grand Slam title after breezing thru nemesis Dinara Safina in straight sets, 6-0 6-3. That's two Grand Slams in a row for her! Now she's elevated her spot to number 7 in the list of female players with the most number of GS titles.
- I'm not a fan of Safina but I really feel for her loss coz I felt that this was her chance to finally break out of the tag of being 'Marat Safin's sister'. Sorry for her, but Serena's just a man with a pair of ovaries. She could maul Rafael Nadal in straight sets if she will! LOL. There are lots of chances left, though. So good luck with her.
- Rafael Nadal once again proved his dominance over his arch rival, the greatest player of all time, Roger Federer in another thrillling five-set victory, 7-5 3-6 7-6(3) 3-6 6-2 . The wedgie-pulling Spaniard, who, btw, sports a new wardrobe (a shirt with sleeves), grabbed his 6th GS title, his 2nd away from the French Open. Uh, so whats so spectacular about that? LOL. Congratulations. It was a well-deserved victory.
- Roger Federer cried! Dang it! I bet lots of others who watched it did too. Imagine, he was so close to tying up with Pete Sampras' record of 14 slams but he blew it away with a series of errors. That hurts.
- And another heartbreak! Ana Ivanovic slips to number 8 in the WTA rankings after getting booted out in the third round. Double ouch! Apparently, a lot of points have been deducted from her since she's a finalist of last year's season. I only hope this won't affect her defense of her French Open crown. An overflowing wishes of good luck to you!
- And speaking of slips, Maria Sharapova's shoulder injury had taken a toll on her as she slides down the rankings to number 17, her lowest rank in five years! A lot of get well soons for her!
Just the first month of the year has passed and a hell lot of things had already happened. Whew! To Roger Federer and Ana Ivanovic, my hopes are high! Good luck to you, guys!
