Game*Set*Match To The Aussie... YAY!

Just biding my time till the men's final when I'll be Rooting For Rafa. With his power serve, fancy footwork and Latin good looks, it won't be tough to watch the five sets I'm hoping for. Not till tomorrow, though. Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

There is no one like Serena Williams to jolt a soul back to reality(?) after a very somber September 11th. She's arrogant in a win and beyond-obnoxious in a loss. Thus was today's horrid behavior. Not to worry, though, 'cause Sam Stosur whooped her in straight sets, 6-2, 6-3. Jeesh, couldn't S.W. just count her blessings on this particular day, by showing a touch of grace? There were so many thousands of tragic losses to mourn.

Tennis is a sport wherein fans often cheer for those who win awesome points, forgetting whom they'd like to see take the match. And there are rules of etiquette. Lots of them. Serena needs a serious lesson in courtesy and humility. She was shockingly vicious towards the chair umpire. She should be ashamed of herself.

Congratulations to the Aussie.
