Hingis won the Mixed Doubles – what a comeback!! She's right back in there at the top level.
Federer prevailed – and was overcome by emotion. Marcus was right in there with a chance the first two sets then I think he just didn't have anymore energy and Roger just ran him around.
Poor old Justine was ill before she started and just ended up handing it to Mauresmo who also deserved it, but I think she would have liked to win it the hard way and earn the applause and cheers for winning it.
And the Bryan brothers were a formidble doubles team, as were the Chinese girls who played unbelieveable tennis from the back of the court in the women's doubles to win in three sets over the number one seeds who had match points they couldn't convert!! AND they played without power shots – just incredible !! (Even though they did beat an Aussie)! <img src='style_emoticons//cool.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’cool.gif’ />
By the way, that Jim Courier is a funny commentator!!
What a great way to start 2006!! Can't wait for the next SLAM!!
