If Kim Doesn't Win the Aussie Open...

Then I Do Not Know what is wrong with her....

Her path is virtually clear to the final. She won the year end champs. She has dominated her last three matches... so her ankle must be fine.

Kim this is your tournament, if justine beats you in another final....



on another note venus did well for her first tournament back after six months off. yes we williams fans expected and hoped for a miracle touranment win, but lets be realistic: she hasnt played a touranment in Six months. Things take time. Look how long it took lindsay to win a tournament after she came back from her long injury layoff.

GO KIM! GO CHANDA! GO MYSKINA~

Since everyone is pipping their faves.... I go all nostalgic. Monica was off for 27.5 months and won her first event back without the loss of a set. She then was Runner Up at her next Slam, just 2 weeks later.

I know it's not relevant to your thread, but I had to re-live some good times of my own with all this *crap* elsewhere on here.

Carry on...

Yes monica did great her first tournament back, but that was not the norm nor was her circuamstance a normal "injury". Kudos to monica.


Now Venus needs to really get it together. Yes its her first tournament back but she needs to realize that she must work on her weaknesses. If her second serve was like serena's she would have had a far greater chance of winning that match. I mean forget about the sometimes shaky forehand just focus on improving your serve and holding more. That would have been a great difference especially in the tie break.

Be ready for antwerp vee because henin will not want you to get that diamond raket.

oh does anyone know if antwerp will beon the tennis station or oxygen?

Dang, I'm running out of people to root for. I won't really be unhappy whoever wins but I would like to see Kim get her first, Lindsay get her last (possibly), or even Justine can make it 3/4. I just hope its competitive, b/c without either Williams sister or Capriati its going to be a little hard to watch. But I'm a tennis nut, I'll get over it. :-)

Man!!!!!!! I really really really wanted to see Kim vs. Vee semifinals. I could already see those balls flying back and forth. Dangit. I'm sorry but Kim's side just got a whole lot more boring. Thank goodness that Roger Federer plays on the same day as her, cuz at least we can watch his magic. Btw, I havent seen Kim play yet this year yet, how is she doing?

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

If Kim choked against Justine twice, I don't see any reason to think this time will be different.

Yeah, Cybelle....Juju, Momo and Lindsay all count for nothing. That should have been obvious.

I do. She won their last meeting, and has a lead in the head to head. Plus, she has always demolished Justine on rebound ace. She's looking very good if her ankle holds up, and she was even before Venus lost.

This is Justine's tourney to lose. If she serves well and plays well won't nobody beat her.
Justine gets the advantage by having the hardest earliest draw imho. She is being tested and imho she will be ready by week two.

Kim and Momo are having it easy imho not tested. Lindsay, she just is not the best mover out there. Justine can make her run and move. Lindsay had trouble with Loit, so she imho can have it bad playing Justine.


I would like for Rubin or even Amelie to pull it out though, but imho they don't have the mental head to take it all home. If by chance I am wrong I will eat crow.

So imho Justine will win the OZ open. my darkhorse is Chanda, she has all the shots and when on can beat anybody.. and yet she goes off the boil more so then stays on.

And yet, something tells me that Momo will win this thing. go figure.

Hell I have no clue who will win it, I even thought that Myskina was the winner the other day. LOL

I envisioned Myskina holding up the trophy.





Cybel Venus played her best, sheesh she has been gone for 6 months has been thru alot. I agree with your post. Which is why I had my money on Justine from the onset.

And yet.. FEARLESS VENUS WILLIAMS RULES
