Henin was pretty amazing by the end, playing better than anyone else so far this US series. I'd put money on her winning the USO.

Great tourney from Yan, she was never going to beat Henin, especially when Henin is in 'magic mode' like today.

Zi has nothing to be ashamed of. She played very well for the most part with maybe the exception of the last 3 games of the first set.. but Justine was just on fire... played awesome in the second set. Great fight Zi

Zi hit way too many attackable shots, and her serve is relatively weak. Still, she put in a great effort and had a great run this week.

JuJu played so aggressively, especially in the 2nd set. If she could play fast court slam semis & finals like that, she'd have won more of them by now. She looks like a heavy favorite tomorrow.

Zi
she had opportunities to tie it at 4-4 in the first set but when Juju broke, it went downhill

Pretty much! She played near perfect in the 2nd. Now Jelena must win her semi to set up an encounter with Justine.

Good job Justine
What was wrong with her shoulder?

Justine Henin
7 grand slams:

4x French Open (03,05,06,07)
2x Us Open (03,07)
1x Australian Open (04)

*winning 35 tournaments
*85 weeks the number one of the world
*olympic gold (04)
I let her take advantage of me, and I feel violated.
