Carlos has called a great game this entire US Open

Justine's tactics have been superb! I have thoroughly enjoyed watching her forays to the net. Watching her and Venus coming in so much this tournament. We can only hope that when Amelie returns we will see even more net play in the womens game.

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Re: Carlos has called a great game this entire US Open

Yes her tactics and her coach are very good, though I'd be interested to see how she'd play with just her tactics alone.

I Nadal. Serena Williams. Venus Williams

Like: Haas. Tsonga. Kiefer. Bartoli. Mirza. Zheng. Bolleli. Safina. Mauresmo. Monfils.Jie.


Hate: Djokovic. Lubjicic. Sharapova. Murray. Dementieva. Soderling.

Justine's tactics are dictated by Carlos. He tells her what to do.

Even if that's the case, she still has to execute; which she's done without any issue this summer.

What do you mean if? Have you not seen any of her televised matches?

Everyone that's been on TV. She's played really well. He can tell her to stand on her head and hit the ball with the racket in her mouth, but it's up to her to actually do that.

I fully agree with that, but you said IF she gets coached from the stands.And we all know she does

Re: Carlos has called a great game this entire US Open

This is true. Just because someone tells you to do this this and this more you actually have to do it. Him coaching is still a big advantage because he can analyze and see things you can't when you are focused on the tennis court. I'd rather be known as not giving credit than have a tainted sportmanship streak like Henin.
