Props thread to Justine Henin-Hardenne

You just have to give it up to her.

She's such an unlikely champion. It scares me sometimes to think what mental fortitude she has.

The woman is plain scary. That's all I can say for now.

Good Luck in 2005 to:

Martina Hingis-Welcome Back!

Venus Williams-Queen of Tennis

Ana Ivanovic-Future Champion

Kim Clijsters-Darling of Tennis

Honorable Mentions: Dinara Safina, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Lindsay Davenport, Svetlana Kuznetsova. Good Luck Girls!

Justine is IMO, the best competitor in tennis. Her game is beautiful to watch and she has all the shots, and all the elements that make a great tennis player: finnesse AND power, great mobility, and great groundstrokes.

IMO Justine is also the best competitor in the business. Her determination to be a champion is uncanny. Looking at how she got to #1 and winning three majors, you can't deny the type of competitor she is.

Yes, she is great!

Although she scared me sometime, but for the other reason!
She likes to play with her fans' nerves!

I suggest you check the meaning of gloating in a dictionary.

Gloating threads are more along the lines of "nyanyanya, my player kicked your player's ass", etc.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

I suggest you check the word sarcasm in a dictionary.

Why is she? Anyone who works hard enough and believe in themselves can be a top player, so why is she an unlikely champion?

Not anyone. You have to have the gifts, and the will. She has both. And a very strong will. She's the most strong-willed person I've ever seen.

Everybody can dream big. Few have what it takes to achieve their dream.

Allez Juju!

Good Luck in 2005 to:

Martina Hingis-Welcome Back!

Venus Williams-Queen of Tennis

Ana Ivanovic-Future Champion

Kim Clijsters-Darling of Tennis

Honorable Mentions: Dinara Safina, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Lindsay Davenport, Svetlana Kuznetsova. Good Luck Girls!
