Serena Sapped Their Doubts

Serena Williams is one star that sparks my inspiration over the last five years, from 2002. The 26-year old, Long Tennis player is one heroine that I have always drawn inspiration from.

Her victory today (her 8th), in the grand slam Australian Open, tennis championship, after almost two years in the injury cooler, was like a telenovela story. It is one of the career sparks heralding the rousing of the 'lioness' of the tennis courts.

It was a nostalgic reminder of the "Serena Slam" when she won all the 4 grand slam titles in 2002/2003 season. She came into the tournament with the odds stacked against her, many called her a spent force, having been World's Number 1 Female Tennis player, some few years back, and now ranked 81, in the world. Many thought that she has entered her professional twilight in tennis.

Grossing over sixteen million Dollars ($16,010,307 USD) in 8 years of professional career is something that is truly an inspiration. She did it in style beating the world's N0. 1 female tennis player, Russian, Maria Sharapova.

All through the seven games, she turned the tables and zapped the ocean of popular doubts to conquer all the seeded players she crushed to emerge champion again.

Her stunning victory may herald a new string of Serena victories in store for this year, 2007, proving that this may as well be a Serena year. I am drawing strength from her testimonies to make a definitive exploits for our telenovela blog this year with the 20 best novelas being showcased here on our site. For those looking for a spectacular testimony in their lives in this new year, I pray the Serena victory for you to shine this year too.

Congrats sister Serena!
