A final word on Wimbledon

Roger Federer may have grabbed all the headlines with a historic victory, but let us reflect on the women’s side. With the likes of Azarenka and Sharapova knocked out before the decider, there is only one thing for certain: a new Grand Slam champion for 2012.

Agnieszka Radwańska became the first Pole to reach a Grand Slam singles final in the Open Era and Serena Williams was vying for her 14th Grand Slam, drawing level with Pete Sampras. Both players wouldn’t of been a favourite to reach the title match, considering that Williams had lost in the opening round of the French Open and Radwańska had never progressed past the quarter-finals of a major.

Like so many of her other matches, Williams was quick to stamp her authority, holding her first service game comfortably and immediately put pressure on her opponent. Apart from the second set, the 30 year-old played a flawless match and once again proved that her will to win is infinite. Her serve proved to be a potent weapon, sending down 17 aces, bringing her total ace count to 102 for the tournament. Funnily enough, that effort topped both the women’s and the men’s ace count.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
