She's got it, yeah baby, she's got it

Congratulations to Venus Williams for a solid win in the women's finals at Wimbledon today.

This was Venus's first Grand Slam title in four years, during which time she has been pretty well eclipsed by her sister Serena and today's opponent, fellow American Lindsay Davenport. Nice to see Venus back on top for a change.

And kudos also to Lindsay for mounting a valiant battle. This final match was the longest in Wimbledon history — two hours and 45 minutes — and Lindsay never gave an inch. To beat Lindsay, Venus had to become the first woman in 70 years to win the Wimbledon singles after facing an opponent's match point. That fact speaks volumes for both competitors.

Now if only American men's tennis didn't totally suck swamp water these days.
