Antwerp: Potential Justine vs. Venus

Venus definitely has a winning edge over Justine .. Obviously if Venus is ready this will be a tough match for Justine.. and Justine has been priding herself on her mentally tough game, Do you think Venus has the psychological edge over Justine, and will Justine be able to keep it together?

I don't know.

If Justine will mix it up against Venus and not get lured into some attempt to out power her, I think Justine can win. Keep it low... keep it into the body. Make Venus always have to hit that extra ball.

Justine will need to attack the net and really mix up her game plan and not let Venus get into a rhythm and be able to anticipate her actions on the court.

Justine should try to overpower Venus, because if you keep the pressure on Venus her forehand will breakdown. Venus needs to attack Justines backhand and come to the net more. I would love to see them match up. Lets pray that it happens...

Too bad ESPN would show billiards over tennis
