Unhappy Justine Heninh Hardenne beats Conchita Martinez 6-0 4-6 6-4

At one time in the match it looked like it could be 6-0 6-1.

Weird match. Justine played amazing tennis in the 1st set and lost only 6 points. Then a 15 duece game which took longer than the whole of 1st set happened. Then Justine really gave the 2nd set away. Then got to 5-1 with Conchita playing poor tennis and then Conchi plays her best tennis Henin palys poor and gets back to 5-4. Henin was lucky at 0-15 when Conchita missed an easy shot and it got back to Henin's match.

Conchita Another close match against a Top player, another loss.

Should have been a 4th Round or QF match.

And if Henin plays like she did in the 1st no one's beating her.

If you put a result up for everyone, it's pathetic to use a sad smiley!

Anyway, Justine, you should have won in 2, but that's just your normal 1st round!
Try to get better in the next one! I know you were pissed with yourself today!

Congrats Conchi !!!

Your play was fantastic, specially in the third set, with an impressive forehand and a very nice slice backhand

Best luck in Wimbledon, I am sure you will give me great days

I keep switched channels while watched three shows in different time included The OC and I still can't believe it still went going on. It's incredible! Was the match good to watch or too boring like typically all matches with Conchita Martinez?

Exciting match. Justine almost blew her 5-1 lead in the 3rd, but she maintained control in the end.

I can't think of a witty signature right now. I like turtles.

Well, I agree about that!
It's just when you look at the thread title, it looks uncool!

Typical Justine match, where she needed to torture her fans!
And that choking!

Conchi That slice BH she missed with an unforced error when she was 15/30, 4/5 on Justine's serve was crucial.

Great match though, it was great to see you back fighting with the top players. Watch out for Wimbledon, young girls!

Wow... that's the first time in a while that I've seen Conchita, pull out such a wide variety of shots. She's always had that ability, but hasn't seemed to use that much variety lately.

She's got a lot of talent... side to side movement seemed to be a real weakness today. Probably age??? but it could be that she just wasn't reading where Justine was going with some of her shots.

Justine played patient with the change-up... and I don't think she played poorly at all, I think Martinez just played well.

The one interesting thing is that when Conchita played agressive she seemed to dominate play... not sure why she didn't do that more. Perhaps she can't keep that up for a whole match anymore?

Anyway... it was nice to see Conchita play well at least one more time on center stage.

While some on the board see Conchita's change-up...lack of pace stuff... as boring... I think it is brilliant. She's really constructing points not just going out to bash the ball and see what happens. Unfortunately... too many people now step in and take those balls early... when years ago... they did not...
