another amazing show of sheer will and perseverance. the azarenka-williams game of the australian open semi-finals went to serene williams who recovered from one set down (in which the second game of the set went on for some incredulous 20 or so minutes and a seemingly equal number of deuces) to beat victoria azarenka 4-6, 7-6(4), 6-2. i could only watch the first set halfway through, but for the while that i was watching it, i was glued to the screen and rendered unable to finish getting dressed for work (the live games come on tv in the mornings here.) the other interesting thing about the game, of course, was azarenka’s ever lengthening and guttural groans.
