Seeing Justine's Play vs. Kimmy, is there ANY DOUBTthat Justine would have won Ausopen 2006 had she been healthy? Is there any doubt that had Justine been healthy Amelie would have been TOAST? Kim tried hitting a lot of high balls, yet she wasn't winning any points

seeing justine slap amelie down 4 weeks ago on clay 62 61 in berlin left no doubt in my mind. amelie should thank her lucky stars that juju was sick as opposed to whining on about it.

No way.
Amelie was on FIRE that day. She would have won regardless.

I feel like Justine handed that grand slam in Australia to Amelie. Amelie should be thanking Justine for providing her the gift of a grand slam title.

Justine pulls one of the most disgraceful stunts in the Open Era, and we should thank her for it. PUH-LEEZE!!!

Amelie didn't hit a winner against A SICK Justine until the last game of the first set and lost the first to a very injured KIM.

Well this is all hypothetical and as much as I thought before that AO final match began that Justine had better chances of winning, these kinds of questions are really unfair to Amelie especially several months after the event. I also thought she played quite well so there's really no guarantee.

I didn't think Justine played THAT great; not to mention that Kim played awful. I think if Justine was 100% healthy against Mauresmo it would have been much closer, but Amelie wouldn't roll over and die like Kim did.

You think the way Kim played today is comparable to the way Amelie played in the AO final? What a joke. Amelie owned that tournament. She wasn't going to lose to anyone, certainly not Henin-Hardenne. Justine had her shot and she decided not to finish the match, and no, stomach pain is not an excuse.
