Reasons Why Justine LOST: Reason #1

Reason number #1 why Justine lost:

She was too agressive. Instead of letting Momo self destruct she attacked the net far too much, giving Amelie the opening to hit reflex shots instead of shots that she really needed to think about. As soon as Justine would sit at the baseline the errors from Amelie would come.

Justine served and volleyed wonderfully in the first set. And while that doesn't come naturally for Justine, it won her the first set. Serve and volleying comes more natural for Amelie, of which she patiently waited for her opportunity to attack.

It was nice to finally see a Wimbledon final in which serve and volley tennis made a comeback on grass....the way it is supposed to be played.

Justine had the right idea, however, it just came more naturally for Amelie on a fast court.

Reason #1 = Amelie played significantly better, took chances, made amazing plays etc.

No more reasons.

Is this really necessary? Amelie earned her win fair and square, let's not try and detract from her win. I'm sure Justine will be back next year, and will have a better gauge of how to play Amelie on grass.

I don't know why you all think this is a jab at Amelie. I think she did play BETTER--HOWEVER, there are things that Justine could have done differently--afterall it wasn't a blow out.

Yeah. I just wish fans would stop and think about the opponent's play and how it was superior. In the end, Ame's nerves held up. What could Justine do? Miraculously save those two aces in the last game?

Yeah, I'm very proud of Justine for winning Eastbourne, and playing a close Wimbledon finals after losing first round last year at Wimbledon.

Both players are proving they are the best on tour this year.

The only reason I see why Justine lost = 1st serve

If she had done better with it, she could have won....

...but that is past. Amelie deserves it. Congrats Amelie!

One and only reason... Amelie played better than her today. End this kind of crappy discussion

I hope this is not gonna turn into a bashing thread on either player Amélie was better, the win was deserved for Amélie and that's what counts. and kuddos to Juju fans but she's done great this year since RG, Eastbourne and now a final in Wimbly, nothing to be ashamed of. As she said herself she'll come back next year hungry for it
