Re: Yet another horrific US Open final

All slam finals are in straight sets with the exception of AO 2003 and Wimbledon 2003.

and AO 2004, Wimbledon 2005 and 2006

BTW: all slam finals this year had a 6-1; and then the number went from FO and AO 6-2, USO 6-3, Wimbledon 6-4

ok, it wasn't horrific, just terrible. Justine played great, but sveta had her chances and didn't take them. She's lucky that yesterday anna played even worse. Sveta had been in 2 slam finals before, winning one, you'd think she'd be ready to go at this point and not be so nervous. A shame.

Re: Yet another horrific US Open final

It was pretty bad. Justine's serve was dreadful, and yet she somehow never got broken. Sveta should be really disappointed right now. Absolutely nothing to take out of this match for her. She's somehow got to grapple with the No.2 ranking now. Hope she lives up to it.

Re: Yet another horrific US Open final

The thing is Sveta played this final like Ana did at the French,but that was Ana's first GS final so it was understandable. Sveta has already won the U.S. Open and played Justine in a slam final so for her to play like that is pretty inexcuseable. Plus she really had her chances the whole match yet didn't take any of them.

Re: Yet another horrific US Open final

And some people were saying that the FO'finals sucked these past few years...Well all we can constat is that when Henin is in a slam final she trashes the opposition (when she doesn't play Mauresmo).

Re: Yet another horrific US Open final

Venus V Henin really was the final. At least that was entertaining, and close, and dramatic. That was just a pain on my eyes. Watching paint dry. Counting grains of sand.

Re: Yet another horrific US Open final

Sveta had justine 15-40 twice and when justine didn't come up with an ace, Sveta managed to shank a forehand. The last game, justine was begging sveta to break her with all those doubles
