Australian Open Wraps Up Tomorrow
Posted by Nancy on January 29, 2010
The field has narrowed, the losers have gone their way and the eyes of the tennis world will be on the final match-ups between Roger Federer and Andy Murray in the men’s division and Serena Williams vs. Justine Henin in the women’s.
If Murray is able to emerge victorious and claim the Grand Slam title, it will be the first time in decades that a British man has done so. The number one ranked player, Roger Federer, is confident that he has what is necessary to finish Murray off and retain his position of dominance in the rankings. He suggests that the pressure is all on his opponent as Murray has one one Grand Slam title under his belt whereas Federer has 15 majors to his credit. Time will tell.
On the women’s front, the final match-up will be between Serena Williams and Justine Henin. The world is well acquainted with the amazing attributes and accomplishments of Serena but Henin is the genuine article as well. This Belgian tennis great has shown that she can withstand the pressure that comes with the big matches and is smart, confident and technically right on target. It will be a race to the finish tomorrow.
