Angry Wertheim Says He Is Not Afraid Of Juju But Stands By His Pick Of Juju As 2006 MVP

I think you are just a little intimidated by Justine Henin-Hardenne. Where Amelie Mauresmo will still be nice against the harshest critics, Justine will throw those dagger glares and make you uncomfortable when sleeping at night. How else to explain not giving Amelie the nod as MVP when she was forever labeled a choker and now has two Slams in one year? Beating Justine both times, no less. So Justine loses and still wins. I guess she is allowed to choke, quit in a final, be forgiven for her injuries, etc., even though any one of these missteps would condemn the rest of the field.
-- Bill, Malvern, Pa.
Plenty keeps me up at night. Global warming. The world my kids will inherit. The logic behind calling the smallest candy bars "fun size" when the real fun comes from eating a mass of chocolate the size of a brick. But the prospect of confronting Belgian tennis players doesn't make the cut.
Again, the prudent course of action would be to wait until the Madrid WTA Championship before conferring the MVP award. If Mauresmo wins that crescendo event, I think she probably gets the nod. But right now, I stick by JH-H. Like it or not, the Slams are the money events, the four climaxes to the season where players make their reputation. A player who reaches the final of each demonstrates not only a complete game but an ability to raise play when it matters most.
I agree that Mauresmo runs roughshod over JH-H in a sportsmanship competition. But Henin-Hardenne's dagger glares and her conduct in the Melbourne final aren't really the issue here. The voting booth doesn't close until next month. But as of today, I stick by JH-H as my candidate of choice.
