Australian Open final: Heartbreak for billions of people

Australian Open F:

Victoria Azarenka def. Li Na 4-6 6-4 6-3

Today, billions of hearts in the world were broken by Victoria Azarenka. Li Na was really undone by her twisted ankle but she fought on bravely. This match was not pretty, with each player committing numerous errors. However, you really have to doubt whether Victoria could have won that match had the 2 falls suffered by Li Na not happened. The Chinese girl probably won a thousands of fans more with her courageous effort despite her poor tennis display today. Azarenka held firm at the right moments and allowed Li to implode. With this win, Azarenka defends her title for her 2nd slam and holds on to the number 1 ranking. Did she deserve it? Yes, but Li  has earned my utmost respect.
