Justine has beaten Serena 4 of last 6 matches

Justine led 2-1 in 2003 and leads 2-1 in 2007. Overall, their head-to-head is 6-5 in favour of Serena because Serena led 2-0 in 2001 and 2-1 in 2002, but this was before Justine really hit the big time.
This grasscourt win is the first Justine win over a Williams on grass or even on a non-clay surface so it is a major breakthrough in her career.

Re: Justine has beaten Serena 4 of last 6 matches

You know what, with these two, it's beyond who is more talented or who is better technically. It's about how much they want it on the day and how mentally tough.

In Miami it was Serena and in Paris it was Justine - today it's so close but Justine had the upper hand. It's fair to say that if there is one person they dread to face, it would only be each other.

I just can't wait when they meet again and Justine put the score right. Somehow, I get the feeling they may not meet for a while..don't know why.

Justine Henin

Thank you.

Yup, it's all about the mental strength and self-belief. Confidence means good serves and lots of winners.

Why wouldn't they meet in New York ?

Re: Justine has beaten Serena 4 of last 6 matches

Yes but some of yall act like this was the last Justine VS Serena match...I mean Serena DID beat Justine this year....lol THERE WILL BE OTHER MATCHES....Justine just got the upper hand today...but you can believe Serena is coming back you'd have to be crazy as a blue goose to think she's not..because just like Henin came back to win against Serena from Miami...Serena will do the same....sometimes she's has to take a few L's to get back on track...same thing happnened with her against Capriati a few years ago.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

Nothing's changed

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest

Ah, but the trend is that Serena is healthy for a few tournies then get injured.

Justine Henin

Thank you.

Re: Justine has beaten Serena 4 of last 6 matches

Yes and three were on clay and 1 Serena was carrying 2 injuries.

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Re: Justine has beaten Serena 4 of last 6 matches

I notice a trend that Justine just beat Serena in 2 straight majors, and Serena 's 2 slam wins in the last 4 years were majors that Justine wasn't in.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

And the trend i see is that when Justine won both her hardcourt slams and her french 2005...Serena wasn't there. The trend i se is that Serena leads the head to head. The trend i see is that Serena has better winning percentages. The trend that i see is that Serena has more slams than Justine. The trend is see is that Serena is the best player of her generation...Justine is not.

Re: Justine has beaten Serena 4 of last 6 matches

The major trend is still that Serena fans can't accept defeats though.

Serena lost, get over it!!!!What's the problem , seriously?? Is there like some unwritten law that nobody should dare to beat Serena or what???
It's not like Serena has been dominating the tour for years running , is it??

At first I was amused reading this board after Serena's defeats, just for the great laughs some delussionnal Serena fans would provide me with their posts... but now it's not even funny anymore.... it's just boring.

Whatever GM crap

the way it should be, Justine's game is class, Serena's just ballbashing

that said, I hate Justine's shitty personality
