Mauresmo has the game to defeat Justine because

On her serve she makes Justine pay for standing so far behind the baseline, by coming in behind it. Justine buys time on big servers by standing 6-8 feet behind the baseline but this strategy cuts down the angles of her returns.

Because Amelie has a similar game as hers, where it is really rare, and Amelie can force Justine to make errors on her backhand side, because Amelie tends to loop the ball to Justine's BH

This observation is just not about this match. Justine counters big servers by standing 6 ft back of the baseline. Few woman come in behind their serve to make her pay. Mauresmo does. Will she win this match, I don't know but her tactic of coming in behind her serve gives her a wonderful chance.

yeah right, now tell me honestly who can beat them at Wimbledon apart from the Williams sisters?? With their actual form, they would still beat anyone else in the draw..

Re: Mauresmo has the game to defeat Justine because

Damn Justine is once again letting Mauresmo get back in the match... I mean she was up 7-5 4-2 and now trailing 2-4 in final set... I know Mauresmo is playing very well forcing Justine to make errors nut still this is not good for her confidence once again letting Mauresmo back after winning the first set.

Re: Mauresmo has the game to defeat Justine because

Mauresmo is just a little bit better on grass with better tactics. They both play the same style but on grass Amelie's weapons tend to work more effectively.

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2

I don't know, but one thing is clear, serve and volley works well against Justine when she is so far behind the baseline. If she comes up, then bomb away it will rush her groundstrokes which take a bit of time to execute.

Exactly. This is why Justine has never won Wimbledon. The amazing (for a woman at least) spin and power she gets on her groundstrokes comes at the price of significant takeback on both her FH and BH. She simply can't set up shots on grass the way a Sharapova or Serena, with compact groundstrkes, can.
