will Enna ever reach another Wimbledon final again?

Enna's already being considered someone's 3rd greatest player despite the fact she's still missing the greatest title of them all and has lost the most important match of her life.

What do u guys think? will she ever reach a final again at wimbledon, let alone win it?

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Justine has an excellent chance. She's won 3 majors and the Olympics.
And she's still very young.
Especially if she's in one half, and Maria and Serena are in the other.

OK, first of all, the majors are about equal. Henin-Hardenne managed to win three of the four biggest matches of her life, which ain't bad. In fact I bet Justine herself probably preferred to win Roland Garros.

I can definitely see her in another final, especially as Serena and Venus are still not as dominant as they were in 2003. Justine gained a lot of power especially on her serve between her last Wimbledon and her illness, so I would give her a good shot to either win or at least make another Wimbledon final.

What makes you think Maria would beat Justine on grass?

I think Justine can beat anyone, anywhere.
But Maria gave up 6 games in her last 3 sets at Wimbledon, against 2 former champs.
So it's good to avoid her.

Bait thread

Someone's obsessed with someone's obsession with Justine Henin and this someone wishes that the other someone was rather obsessed with Serena William.

I agree, so it makes no sense that she lost the most important match of her life, she won it.

I don't know why you, bandabou, have to post such threads where you obviously want to provoke Justine fans. It's basically another "Will Enna ever match Serena in greatness?" with different words. Everyone knows Serena does well at Wimbledon, though she lost one "most important" match of her life there as well.

That stat means very little when you think about how Serena was playing back then.

Maria was serving to Serena 6-2, 5-4 at the AO.
She was serving 6-1, 5-4 at Wimbledon.

I think it's easier for Justine to beat Maria than Serena on grass. I guess. So Maria could take care of Serena first, then lose to Justine in the final. Justine beating Mauresmo, Davenport or Clijsters in the other semifinal, that would be a great tournament!

So why was she able to win one match and not the other??

That's tennis. One or two points can mean 2 sets, or 1 set all.

Indeed....thing is that Serena already had two holy titles, while enna didn't have and still doesn't have one....
