Cool Roland Garros / Australian Open Champ Battle: (1) Henin vs. Pierce

Head to Head: Justine leads 2-0

2003 Charleston QF 6-2,6-3
2003 Wimbledon R16 6-3, 6-3




Well finally Mary gets another shot at ... Justine better watch out because Mary is in hot form after knocking out Nadia and Venus. I predict that Justine will be the third top 10 seed that Mary sends packing from Athens. Mary will win 7-5, 6-4.

I hope Justine beats Mary in less than an hour, then looks into a TV camera and says, "That's how it's done, Venus."

I hope Justine wins... but you never know until you see the results... a lot of funky shit has happened in Athens lately, so you will never know who will win. But I'm giving Justine the advantage!

In the end it is still the same old me.

lol

I had predicted Mary to win against Venus because I thought there would be no Venus-Justine match here, and since I had predicted an easy win from Justine...

As for tomorrow, Justine will be just too good for Mary. She may be a little bit rusty, but she seems to be playing at least as well as in Indian Wells, where she beat Myskina 6-1 6-1 and "outplayed" Davenport in the final, where Lindsay admitted there is nothing you can do when Justine is playing like this.

Indeed, Pratt or whoever, there's nothing to do when Justine is playing like this.
Of course, there will be a day where Justine will be off, due to her lack of match play, but it's not tomorrow.

I expect Justine to win this in 2 sets, 6-3 6-4.

Mary will be brimming with confidence with her win over Venus, Justine's results have been impressive after coming back from injury but I think Mary will win it, she seems to have found her form at the right time.

Justine should win. But hey, Venus should have at least given Mary a bagel or two but look what happened?! (SHOCKED)

But I still say Justine.

Justine Henin

Thank you.

I want Justine to win more than anything but you never know: Mary can be a tricky player as she's shown today. So, allez, Walloon Warrior.

Please come back in top condition, J... I miss you very badly

I would give the advantage to Justine. Mary has been playing formidably, but if Justine is on, there is just nothing you can do.
And I expect Justine to be on tomorrow. Straight sets for Juju.

MARIA SHARAPOVA: "Amélie, you know it doesn't really matter at this point. I mean, I'd love to, I mean, Amélie is No. 1 in the world. She's playing great tennis. You know, I love that challenge of going out there and competing against the best in the world."
You'd love to what, Maria?

Uh, I would call 6-3; 6-4, 6-0; 6-1, and 6-0; 6-2 pretty impressive .
