Hi, it’s me, Julia, obviously! Unless I were secretly a robot sneaking onto this account, but what are the chances of that? Okay, I do have a robot!!!! But that’s not the point.

Since I haven’t been on in FOREVER, I am going to finish up talking about the Australian Open. Because I’m just THAT awesome. This is our second snow day in a row, so I am PUMPED, yo!

Can you guess who I wanted to win the women’s final? I’m going to try not to show favoritism for this one, but for the men’s, I can’t help it! See if you can guess who I wanted to win for the women and write it in a comment below!

Serena Williams vs. Justine Henin

Serena Williams: 6-4, 3-6, 6-2

So, as you have probably heard by now, or not… Serena Williams won the Australian Open against Justine Henin. When I first saw this match-up, I, and every other tennis fan in the world, was ready for a REAL match. Did you know that this match was the first time a women’s final has gone to three sets in, well, forever!?! The last final was in 2005! I was surprised when I heard this and went screaming it around the house… yeah. I was excited to have a real match, as you can tell!

I meant to post this a long time ago, so I am just going to give you the ending scores. Serena Williams won 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. Henin was on a roll the second set to the beginning of the third set, but couldn’t keep it up. Serena Williams picked up her game in fear of losing and ended up taking Justine Henin in a pretty easy third set. Henin won the first two games in the third set, and those were the last games she won in the championship. Serena Williams now has 11 Grand Slam singles titles.
