Got a cortisone shot by the end of Jan. (took 6 weeks off in the mean time). Started lifting again in Feb, still hurt.. Open titles, three French Open titles and a fresh, new stay at the No.1 ranking she lost in September to Angelique Kerber.Was it the meeting of the two or the feat of the one?In the middle of the night, it was hard to parse it all.[Michael Jordan had perfect gift for Serena Williams after she won Aussie title]For two players whose commitment to the game once was questioned at some murky times in the past decade, they met with a longevity that could count as staggering. It came 19 years after their second round meeting in the Australian Open at ages 17 and 16, which Venus Williams won, 7 6 (7 4), 6 1; 15 years after Serena Williams began turning their rivalry with a French Open final win after which Venus Williams joined the photographers capturing her sister; 14 years after their best match, a smashing Australian Open final which Serena Williams won, 7 6 (7 4), 3 6, 6 4; and eight years after their last Grand Slam final together, which was their second of two straight Wimbledon finals together, with one win each.The very presence of Venus Williams in a final brought quite a question: How does a person with a large Grand Slam title total of seven become a big surprise finalist? Answers: when she hasn’t reached one since 2008, when she spent 2011 to 2014 never reaching a Grand Slam quarterfinal, when she battled an autoimmune condition and became an afterthought, when she arrived in Melbourne coming off an arm injury in New Zealand and told reporters of reaching a final, “I mean, honestly, all the signs didn’t look that way in Auckland.”It meant that after a match Serena Williams controlled narrowly but firmly, Venus Williams got to stand behind her as the younger sibling said, “There’s no way I would be at 23 without her; there’s no way I would be at one without her,” and, “She’s the only reason that I’m standing here today,” and, “Every time you won this week, I felt like I got a win, too.” From their hair beads as the teenage daughters of clever parents who overcame the absence of tennis backgrounds, they had surpassed all the way to an extended post match hug everyone could understand.Still, groggy American heads had more to mull, because this match changed the order of the sport. Open, the sport had found its peerless player.
Al quedar embarazada, no faltaron las crticas por convivir con dos gatos (no te alarmes todava; durante casi diez meses segu las instrucciones de mi doctor por ). Recuerdo que varias veces mi familia en Venezuela me reclamaba por tener “a esos animales en casa no sabiendo lo peligrosos que son”. Y es que tambin se corre el rumor de que los gatitos asfixian a los recin nacidos, y buscan cortarles las venas del cuello Te imaginas hasta donde llegan los cuentos que pasan de generacin en generacin?.
