They have been #1 for over 100 weeks.

4 French Opens
2 Wimbledons
and
3 US Open Titles

This year, they are the TWO MOST IMPRESSIVE players around:


Justine has been on a tear, winning her last 13 matches, including tournament wins at Dubai and Doha, and collecting wins over Amelie Mauresmo, Svetlana Kuznetsova, and Jelena Jankovic

Serena has been on a similar run. With a 13-1 record, she has re-claimed the Australian Open crown, and has a 5-0 record against players ranked in the top 10, including a sweep of 24 out of 29 games against former World #1 Maria Sharapova.


As the two best players on tour square off this Saturday Afternoon, who will walk away with the title?

Serena or Justine?
Justine or Serena?

Either way you put it, we're in for, what appears to be, a GREAT final!

Serena in 2. She's shown that she's the best fighter around and with 16 straight sets under her belt, it's hard to argue against her

Re: MIAMI FINAL! (13) Serena Williams vs. (2) Justine Henin

Before today's match I'd have said Serena in 3. Now I'm questioning the knee situation. So I say Justine in 3.

I say Serena in straight sets. The knee situation is worrisome, but with a day`s rest, i think Serena will be ready to go.

Serena's going to have to hit more balls. Sore knee, tight.

Justine in two.

I think Serena will win in three sets. Henin is a tough cookie and I don´t think she will be downed in two sets. I just hope it will be a very good match that lasts 3 hours. That would be great!
