One player hits the baseline and the other player hits the ball either back in play or misses it but the linesman screams that the ball was out. The umpire overrules and calls the ball in and to replay the point. Now the player on the baseline that the ball landed on decides to challenge the ball, and the challenge shows the ball in and nothing happens other than replaying the point.
There should be a new rule: if the challenge shows the ball in, that player made the challenge loses the point.
What's the purpose of challenging it except the player believed the ball to be out and would have challenged it anyway if the linesman didn't call it out.

You can fly when you are around 6 months which is what Seerena is. And she can always take a private jet.

An elephant can (not that I'm comparing Serena to one). Their average gestation period is something like 22 months. But in terms of human pregnancy...apparently that happens too!

Yes, she was going to bust a gut every point no matter how long the
match took. She had to win in front of the Spanish king.

Muguruza the first player to beat both Williams sisters in slam finals?

Probably, though Henin beat them both in straights in 2007 USO.

I enjoyed that final... Muguruza showing her amazing all court power tennis... now she has to do it more than every 18 months... :)
 
Cheers for the champion!

Yes, I called it "The William Double"... Muguruza first to achieve it... and both were boarder line beat downs... impressive from Gaby...

Only the 1st set. The 2nd was pretty ugly due to Venus' huge drop in form.

Yes. I agree with you, hopefully she can become more consistent and not have another slump or have an awful attitude. With her game she should be dominating.

Well, I like Muguzuza, jezz, even her name is cool... Love her tennis and the fight she's put up this fortnight was that of a champion... and so it came to be...

Yes, she was great all tournament. Big turn around from her crap
efforts since winning FO, so hopefully she can maintain a good solid
effort going forward & not revert back to mediocrity.

I know, Patrick. You were one of the very few yesterday saying give Muguruza a little love. Everyone else was like, "Awww, wouldn't it be the greatest feel-good story if Venus won?" No, actually it wouldn't and I'm glad she didn't. I'm sick of the damn Williamses and their never-ending drama.
