And Here Comes The Tail End, Part 1

The finals of the Australian Open is coming in the next couple of days. That means I'm staying home this weekend to watch the matches again :D

The women's final match will be a battle of the little sisters (except they're both far from being little, actually.) Three-time champion Serena Williams, who has won the Aussie Open the past three odd-numbered years faces Dinara Safina, who was the finalist in last year's French Open. Dinara aims to follow her older brother Marat's footsteps, who won the Aussie Open in 2005 (he beat Roger Federer in the semis that year in an awesome 5-setter.) Serena is aiming to follow her own footsteps, since older sister Venus has never won this thing. It's also a winner-take-all kind of match, as whoever wins the title will take the #1 ranking from Jelena Jankovic.

Serena will also be playing the women's doubles final with her sister Venus against Daniela Hantuchova (woohooooo!) and Ai Sugiyama. The Williams sisters rarely ever loses a doubles match, but still, PODME DANKA!!!

Well your Slovak is excellent :)I too am a big fan of hers, and Cibulkova as well. Cheers.

ďakujem! I think Rybarikova has the potential to be a top player too, so that's 3 good players from Slovakia already. :)

Too bad Daniela and Ai lost in the finals, but a runner-up finish isn't so bad, either.

I first saw Rybarikova play in the Wimbledon Juniors finals, just like Hantuchova years back. She has definite potential. Unfortunately Slovaks (I am one) lack the killer instinct to crack the top ten and stay there. But maybe that will change one day. Cheers.
