Re: Last Time Juju Played A Night Match During Labor Day Weekend, ...
Actually the last two night matches that Justine has played during the labor day weekend, she has lost.
She played Nadia Petrova in a night match in 2004 in the 4th round.
Mary Pierce beat her in a night match in 2005 in the 4th round.
She didn't have a night match in 2006.
She likely will get one now.
I just don't think Justine is that comfortable playing night matches here.
She seems to see the ball a little late and plays a bit defensive.
When I said earlier this summer that Venus didn't seem to be that comfortable playing night matches yet, people thought I was out of my mind until Chakvetadze beat her.
Venus sees the ball at the US Open great though.
I don't think Justine will lose to Safina although I think Safina can give her a little scare.
I don't think she'll be very comfortable playing Serena in a night match.
