In straight sets. Has this been done before?

Re: Justine beat 3 USO champions on her way to the title

Yeah but:

1. Serena was out of form.
2. Venus was ill.
3. Svetlana was out of form and seems 20 years older than what she should be.

Re: Justine beat 3 USO champions on her way to the title

Justine's coming through such a fiercely difficult draw without dropping a set, makes this latest triumph the most pleasing out of her 7 grand slam titles so far .

Justine Henin - Maria Kirilenko - Stephanie Dubois - Anna Chakvetadze - Aleksandra Wozniak - Tatiana Golovin
Flavia Pennetta - Caroline Wozniacki - Marie-Eve Pelletier - Alicia Molik - Dominika Cibulkova - Severine Bremond
Su-Wei Hsieh - Tsvetana Pironkova - Elena Vesnina - Alize Cornet - Ashley Harkleroad - Monica Niculescu

guess we've been seeing different things these past few days~though admittedly Kuznetsova wasn't exactly playing high quality tennis in the final.

Well, different people can see things differently. Not surprising there.

Well, obviously, we all know that she's lucky and has no talent. But I still want to know whether anyone else has done this before?

hey saki, that quote in your signature, may I ask when that was quoted from? I just had a read of it and amused me very much

Re: Justine beat 3 USO champions on her way to the title

Serena beat Seles, Davenport, & Hingis at the '99 Open, but they weren't all in straight sets.

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.

Re: Justine beat 3 USO champions on her way to the title

I dont think anyone has beaten 3 former champs in str8 set en route to a USO title before. Could be wrong though.

Graf-Pierce-Henin
