Azarenka Out-shrieks Sharapova, Faces Serena in US Open Final

“It’s frustrating, but it’s the game of tennis,” Sharapova said. “A lot of swings in the match today. I had the lead and the advantage, but she picked up her game. And in the third set it had a lot to do with the returns. I didn’t do much on her service games — she was winning them pretty easily. Mine were quite long…It’s New York; it’s a Grand Slam; it’s the US Open. This is what you practice for, is to get in those situations and try to get out of them; today I just didn’t.”

“For the first time in my career, I’m not sure what to say, said Roddick, struggling with his emotions as his wife, model and actress Brooklyn Decker, struggled to mask the flow of tears in the player’s box. “It’s been a road, a lot of ups, a lot of downs, a lot of great moments. I’ve appreciated your support along the way. I know I certainly haven’t made it easy for you at times, but I really do appreciate it and love you guys with all my heart. Hopefully I’ll come back to this place someday and see all of you again.”
