Glamorous Grand Slam
This has gotta be the most glamorous (read: hot) Grand Slam ever :)... Both Ana and Maria are regarded as the most beautiful women tennis players in the game and it was nice to see them play. Of course, Maria Sharapova who has been in top form throughout the tournament won handily although Ana did put up a fight especially in the first set.
The Men's draw has been full of surprises - both Nadal and Federer having beaten by Tsonga and Djokovic (whom I have written about earlier) respectively and in straight sets no less. It was bound to happen eventually - Federer's run was to be broken and am happy to see Djokovic do it. Hailing from a country that has been torn by wars and conflicts - Serbia, its good to see him and his fellow Serbians (Ana Ivanovic & Jelena Jankovic) rise up in the World Tennis' ranks. Maybe the fact that their country was torn by wars motivated them to work harder.
