I fear for Justine

This scenario has repeated itself a couple times before: 1. Justine plays tough in the QF, SF only to lose to a less skilled player in the Final (see, Wimbledon, Australian open etc). Sveta will be primed for the win.

Re: I fear for Justine

If Justine lets this opportunity slip because of nerves, then she's a punk.

Re: I fear for Justine

If Justine loses tonight she is the ultimate loser.

I thought the same with Bartoli ... Justine trashed her in Eastbourne & look what happened 2 weeks later at Wimbledon. This final will not be a walkover ...

Re: I fear for Justine

I give Sveta a chance. However, this is Justine's time. This is the best Grand Slam tournament she has ever played imo. I doubt she will ever play one as well as this again, in the same way Serena never played a tournament as well as the 2002 USO again. This 2007 US Open Trophy has Justine Henin's name on it. She made sure of that before the tournament started.

(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Quite...yeah. With everything pretty much in her favor. But you never know, Svetlana has nothing to lose really and she's won it before. Still, It's Justine's match to win or lose. But omg if Justine doesn't win it tonight (taking into account both their performances so far).

A lot of people were saying the same thing at Wimbledon, and look what happened there

Forget dumbass statements about Justine being a loser or punk, this is sport. One on one big occasions - weird and wacky things can happen baby!

Sveta is good enough and has enough game to take it to the Belgian favourite.

Re: I fear for Justine

Justine rarely do the same mistake after the last one. she missed that opportinity in Wimbly, she took the time to think about it. I don't think she will repeat it tonight.

The same thing happen in Miami. She said that on belgian TV, she wanted to win so bad over Serena in Rolland Garros because of what happen to Miami where she lost her nerves and didn't think that she could beat her. The same was said when she wins the championships last year: she wanted to beat Amelie who beat her twice that year because she basically don't want them to have an hold on her emotionally.

She said yesterday that she also consider this final with a taste of revenge because of the last time when Svetlana beat her and that she wants another slam other than the usual one of Rolland Garros.

I don't think she will let that happen, she has extra motivation for not letting that happen. But once never know.
