Venus proved that she was the better player today...

with the way that she bullied Henin around the court 90% of the time. Henin did the typical strategy against Venus (hit the ball down the middle and get the ball back) but if Venus plays a cleaner match then she definatley's got this one in the bag.

Really, supergrunt? Because I'm fairly certain Justine won.

And Henin hit some dominating forehand winners. Venus couldn't handle a lot of them.

Re: Venus proved that she was the better player today...

Re: Venus proved that she was the better player today...

Venus has gone more than 6 years with only 2 majors. Both Williams sisters have been inferior players during the Henin era.

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

Henin played great and Venus did her best but simply wasn't good enough to win. There was no way that Venus proved that she was the better player today. In all honesty, Justine could have cleaned her up a lot quicker if she didn;t get tight at the wrong moments

Please take a 4 months vacation.
You'll be back stronger than ever for the Australian Open, just like Venus and Serena.

By "did her best", I hope you mean TRIED her best, and not played her best.

Note: This is not taking anything away from Henin's win. She's an amazing player and deserved to win.

I'd like to imagine that in order to beat me a person would have to play almost perfect tennis. - Venus Williams

No, he did mean play her best. Justine is too good. If Justine plays her best tennis, she beats both Williams sisters on any surface but grass. She has too many weapons in her arsenal. All the sisters can do is hit really freakin hard. They don't absorb pace as well and they can't hit defensive shots consistently.

if Justine don't get tight, she spank Venus ass 63 63. This match was pretty much ownage, Venus movement not good enough
