Wimbledon Semifinals

July 2, 2009

Dear Ladies' Semifinal,

So, Serena and Elena Dementieva made a fantabulous match, making people stand on their toes and give spectators high-blood
pressure. Meanwhile, Venus Williams made Dinara Safina forget that they're having a semifinal match, not a serving practice. She whipped Dinara with everything she got, 6-1 6-0, beating the world number 1 like crazy. So the semifinals featured the top 4 seeds, same with the women's doubles, the top 4 seeds as well. Here's the thing, Venus and Serena also won their semifinal match against the top seeds Liezel Huber and Cara Black with a 6-1 6-2 beating while Samantha Stosur and Rennae Stubs had to go through 3 sets. Don't hate the Williamses, if no one's up to the challenge to challenge them (thank you, Elena Dementieva), then let them reap the Grand Slams. I'm in for Venus Williams. Grass is her weed. And yeah, after 132 years of tradition, Wimbledon dropped the Miss/Mrs in the scoreboard. Strange.

MORAL: It's going to be a nice Independence Day celebration in the United States. Well, the lesson here is that, no matter how hard you try, Venus Williams was born on grass. She gets superhuman abilities when playing on grass. Hmmm...

Dear Gentlemen's Semifinal,

Roger Federer defeated Tommy Haas. Tadah. He does this suspended action of play. He sets up, then he waits for a little until Tommy Haas makes a guess of where would Roger hit the ball. So when he starts moving to a direction (it's just either left or right), Federer hits a clean winner. It was a battle of the one-hand backhands and amazing slices. There were a lot of aces involved as well, though Roddick can serve like a speeding truck (hello Venus Williams' male counterpart).

If there's one thing Roger is not good at, it's at making challenges. His challenges were waaaaaaaaay waaaaaaaaaay far. It's like he only does those challenges to somehow break the momentum of his opponent. Well, whatever. Battle of the Andy's. Andy Murray and Andy Roddick. Roddick fires aces like it's the only thing he's good at. He just threw dirt at the hope of the British fans. He defeated Andy Murray in 4 sets, and he can't even cry a big "YEEEEES" or something. He just cried, I bet he's afraid of the British fans. Well, of course, you aren't pretty sure what could happen to you, after all, they're still waiting for a British hero after 73 years and now they'll have to wait for next year again. It's not a Nike match/finals, thank God!

MORAL: It's really going to be an amazing Independence Day for the Americans. Never make the wife of another player sit behind the wife of another player. Just imagine how awkward it was for Mrs. Haas and Mrs. Federer. Sorry, Tommy, that's life. You still look good, though.
