Henin was saved by Bartoli from a major hiding in the final.. Venus .. one match away from getting right back into the best-currently-active-player contest..

But I really wanted to see THAT hiding!!!

Fate has kept Henin away from a Venus Style Beatdown for what sees like a decade.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

Ahh well, at least people can't say now that it's just Venus' losses keeping the head to head like it is. Justine clearly didn't want to make it worse (j/k)

Playing the way she played today..I think Justine was lucky not to run into Venus...tommorow.

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

It's mostly Venus having to lose before the arranged stage so it's nice of Justine to do the favors as well.

She'll be back at no.2 in best of her generation as far as i can see, edging ahead of or drawing level with Henin, depending on what way you look at it.

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.
