Serena Williams defeats Justine Henin, wins Sony Ericsson Open

Justine Henin didn’t manage to add the Miami title to her collection, while Serena Williams accompanies Steffi Graf as the only two female tennis players who won both the Australian Open and Miami in the same year.

Justine won the first set with an astonishing 6-0 – I was afraid that I was going to watch a boring final. But, things slowly began to change, which made the match much more exciting. In the second set Serena began to fight. Serena’s wealth of experience helped her survive Justine’s two championship points, and even win the second set 7-5. In the third set Henin became a bit discouraged especially after she fell – two times! I thought she will not be able to continue the match. In addition, vast majority of spectators were encouraging Serena, while only from time to time you could hear the French “Allez”.

All in all, I think we can all be satisfied because we were watching a really interesting final.
