Today I watched one of the most awe-inspiring displays of determination and raw athleticism. Serena downed Daniela Hantuchova in 3 sets during this years Wimbledon. She fought through calf injuries, weather and suggestions from her family who urged her to quit, mind you for her own health and safety.
People always ask me what is my infatuation with Serena in particular, but for those who follow the game, this one match tells the tale. Win or lose, you can’t deny the heart of a champion.
