Miss Choke

I'm a huge fan of Justine...but when will she ever stop choking

Her match today against Lindsay was just pathetic...two breaks ahead, Lindsay injured and limping..and Justine still loses.

She's the biggest choker on tour..without a doubt

The frustration never ends.

Maybe she should fire that sports psychologist of hers and steal Mauresmo's.

It's the same pattern of choking. 4 games, sizeable lead, losing serve repeatedly (apparently through bad play and the other player just hanging in) till it's even, then fighting back and having another chance but blowing that as well.

She is the new Novotna.

Well, now with the accusaions, it's worse than choking.

I wonder if she ever realizes what she's doing with all these losses. Now in this one it appears she decided to ignore all sort of strategy and rely on her opponent to retire. Very questionable and stupid tactic.

Everybody knows Henin's biggest problems are the mental ones.

Justine has this problems, they have become less frequently. She is working on it but sometimes they come up again (here it was a perfect scene: Lindsay near-to-death, Justine leading, a bit backing down because of not knowing what to do, but Lindsay still playing like she's 100% healthy). Let her work even more on it and she'll be able to cut it out of her game.

Take her like she is or don't take her. You also don't dislike Seles because she has bad movement.

For me Justine is still my number one. With or without the mental demons.

Yes, she's improved. It's kind of hard for her fans but with our endless support, she will overcome it someday. And I know she gets very faithful and special fans.

I completely agree with Xin and Nemesis !
No matter how frustrating she can be sometimes, Justine will always have my support. She is such a joy to watch that I can forgive her anything !
And I am sure she will somehow overcome that "mental" problem.
Go Justine, do us proud in L.A !
