Re: Will Sveta pull a Capriati?

Of course she can. She has beaten Henin recently and she has no pressure and plenty of weapons to knock of JH. I mean, Juju is so tired right now. And the final is tomorrow! Can juju rest up by then.....hell no. Sveta will win tomorrow in straight sets, but maybe she could use 3 sets to defeat Justine if she's nervous

Re: Will Sveta pull a Capriati?

Justine is the best player in the world, but she had breathing problems today.
And she went thru a much tougher draw than Sveta. Much more work, mental effort. Sveta has a chance.
Justine is POY no matter what happens tomorrow.

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

Re: Will Sveta pull a Capriati?

Yes. I just said this in the other thread, I have a feeling Sveta is gonna win. (or maybe its just hoping but whatever)

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / RezaÔ
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / GŲrges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

Re: Will Sveta pull a Capriati?

Of course she can. Justine lost to Bartoli after beating Serena, because she was tired physically and mentally. Imagine how tired she is now. Let's hope she's learned from her loss to Bartoli and doesn't crumble against Sveta. Sveta certainly has the weapons to beat Justine and isn't afraid of her.

Re: Will Sveta pull a Capriati?

I think she needs a miracle. Or Henin to get injured.

Re: Will Sveta pull a Capriati?

Sorry, but Hingis didn't own Capriati like Justine does Sveta. Plus, Hingis choked that match away if memory serves me right.

"People think Iím a bitch when they first meet me because ĎOh Iím pretty, oh I have this beautiful bodyí and they are right. Donít waste your breath with me if you donít have a Bentley or a fur on hand ready to give me."

Hingis got killed by the heat.

Your memory serves you wrongly. Capriati was ahead almost from the get go. Secondly, Capriati hadn't ever beaten Hingis on the WTA Tour (only once in an exhibtion) before winning that match.

But I do think you're right that Henin has a bigger advantage over Sveta than Hingis did over Capriati. Kuznetsova is an ugly, erratic player with no great fluidity, tactical nouse, nor mental astuteness; Capriati was a champion lying dormant.

Hingis had a 5-0 H2H lead before that loss

I think Sveta has a shot, Justine can sometimes come out flat after big/exhausting wins, she was flat in last year's final, Sveta needs to go for broke, but Justine is a massive fave no doubt...

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Sorry I was thinking of the 02 match. Hingis choked that one away.
