"Motz was noted for having defeated Enrico Fermi in a tennis match, and then discussing not his strategy (which was to play the net), but to give a speech on how the conservation of momentum applied to tennis balls and the tightness of strings on the racquets." wiki

Too bad! It was difficult to envision winning a Grand Slam game in her physical condition (pain in her pectorals).
Anyway, what a a great champion she is. I admire her winning mentality, and not only because I hold a French passport ("L'important, c'est de participer" * )

Guess who won? What was it, from dust to dust? In Nadal's case it's from clay to clay. Bravo!

Bravo maestro, indeed!
And congratulations to Halep. But, gosh what a ugly game she plays and her continuous screams are so annoying!

the second semi on the men's side is also a long one: they had to stop play last night and resume today
When last I checked, it was 5-5 in the 5th set! even stevens!

both players in tomorrow's final will be exhausted before they even start
