So who's the better player?

You could say Serena because she fought back and won the match and managed to beat Justine playing well, or you could say Justine because she was destroying Serena for the first set and 1/2.

Re: So who's the better player?

juju, because she is not at her best. not many players can bagel serena also, serena gained a lot of support from the homecrowd.

Re: So who's the better player?

I still think Justine is better, but that's just me

I'm cheering for Amélie and Shahar.

Re: So who's the better player?

You have complexes. Let's wait until both will have retired and then we can maybe take a decision.

Re: So who's the better player?

Tennistique: Justine. Better tennis player I think is Justine.

Ju Henin Tamaryn Hendler Yanina Wickmayer Kim Clijsters
* Justine De Sutter * Marie Benoit * Klaartje Liebens * Kim Stubbe *


* Patty Schnyder * Dinara Safina * Elena Dementieva * Vika Azarenka * Katarina Srebotnik * Dominica Cibulkova * Ashley Harkleroad * Sabine Lisicki * Nicole Vaidisova * Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova * Sesil Karatantcheva *

Re: So who's the better player?

You cant really decide who is better on one match. I'd say Serena is better because out of all their matches, she has won on more occasions.

I don't know, I'd say it's a tough call so that's why I voted 'don't know'
