An Interesting Note About Justine's Wimbledon History

Justine's Wimbledon Career:

1999- DNP
2000- 1rd (l. to A. Sanchez Vicario R16)
2001- F (l. to V. Williams)
2002- SF (l. to eventual finalist V. Williams)
2003- SF (l. to eventual champ S. Williams)
2004- DNP
2005- 1rd (l. to E. Daniilidou R32)
2006- F (l. to A. Mauresmo)
2007- SF (l. to M. Bartoli)

does that mean that Bartoli will lose to Venus Williams in tomorrow's final?

Interesting that she's repeated after every 5 years.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Re: An Interesting Note About Justine's Wimbledon History

I hope she beats that record next year. Although, really, you could look at anything and make it some kind of record.

Re: An Interesting Note About Justine's Wimbledon History

every 5 years she has repeated the same result, and the player she lost to has had similar success/lack of.

Ok, well one time around is not really a big occurence, but if Marion somehow pulls this off, then I'll consider it interesting.

Re: An Interesting Note About Justine's Wimbledon History

Well all i know is that if you ae a justine fan, the most important thing is that she still has never won the title. I felt she blew her chance when she lsot last year to Momo, after being in control her nerves got to her, she blew a good chance to get to the final this year as well.

Quote:
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.
