Justine had a heck of an year.. But ..

.. what will be remembered in 5 years is that Mauresmo won Wimbledon ( the biggest tourney of the year ) and two Slams overall, Sharapova won US Open and Justine won French. In that order.

lmao.. Same big? Ask tenins historians. Ask the public. Ask the players. Who cares about the points.. Points will be off your WTA account in 12 months time. Wimbledon crown is Forever.

Re: Justine had a heck of an year.. But ..

by non-tennisfans maybe, but the ones that are looking for legends, records, making history won't forget the incredible feet she made this year. + she ends the year no1. That's all i need to know. so your pathetic attempt at stirring crap up isn't really working.

Some people did learn about tennis just a couple of weeks ago. You have to give them credit.. for trying hard to learn more and get rid of their ignorance. It takes time.

Re: Justine had a heck of an year.. But ..

I really don't think Wimbledon should be the biggest tournament, I mean it's kind of boring cause there's no animosity, everyone is dressed in white, and there's not even equal pay.

I mean Conchita Martinez Wimby crown vs Iva Majoli RG crown. ASV did win plenty. Stil, sure she'd throw off a couple of FOs for a W title.

'I had plenty of boyfriends and lots of affairs, but they got furious when I made my name. People would ring up and ask me out. I'd say: "But I'm writing." 'And they'd say: "I see. You're too grand for us now." 'And I'd say: "Actually, I've always been too grand for you."

Actually, Justine made history by making it to the finals of all four grand slam titles, Fed Cup final and winning the YEC, and putting herself in a position to become only the third woman in the history of tennis to win three consecutive French Open titles.

Tennis history keeps a list of everyone that ends the year at #1. Justine already appears on that list twice.
