    Great match, it's weird cuz I wanted a Davenport vs Venus final after Serena got beaten in the earlier stages...not sure why, but it seemed like it would be good and it sure delivered, .....I felt bad for Davenport when she had the problems with her back tho...you could see she was trying to overcome it and she even had a championship point which she didn't get . Nevermind, all credit to Venus, you could see it meant alot to her, I always love a Williams in the final, the power they produce is amazing! Commiserations to Lindsay cuz she was inches away!

    Btw, I was a bit confused, why did they not have a tie-breaker in the last set? Do they just carry on playing until someone is 2 games ahead of the other?

    Yep, mens and womens, last set cant be decided on a tie break.

    So in theory the match could have gone to 16-18

    Last year after Wimbledon I was like, 'I wanna play tennis!' I do it every year after Wimbledon, lol, I even went all out buying 'Ace' magazine and everything after Goran won in 2001...this year I'm at it again, but I know I won't start! There's tennis courts just a few minutes' drive from my house but I have no one to play with and can't be bothered! I feel a bit elderly, at 16, though...

    But I say go for it! You never know, you could be some sort of prodigy! And even if you're not, you'll have fun and you will improve.

    This is what I'm remarking on, that every year for the last couple of years no-one even cites the sisters to win Wimbledon anymore, even though one of them always makes it to the final!
    Damn! I'm just always right!

    Well done to Venus. Bad luck to Davenport, I wanted her to win!! I hope the mens final is amazing but I really want Roddick to win! I'm getting quite bored with Federer, even though he is a class player!
