Match Point

U rged on by the crowd, she found 
N ew courage: a close-fought contest their one 
D esire, with glory shared all round and
E veryone a winner. Her sole advantage was surprise, bringing
R oars of admiration for each passing shot and gasps of
D elight at every brave escape against the
O dds. And afterwards they graced her with the warmer applause,
G lad though they were that the best woman won.
