Justine and Roger need to learn from each other?

One is desperate to catch a French Title, another is desperate to grab a Wimbledon.
Both of them have great footwork, and amazing single backhand.

They can learn something from each other?

Re: Justine and Roger need to learn from each other?

Its sorta different isn't it? Roger is losing to Nadal most of the time at RG, whereas Justine loses to a variety of players..

VENUS
Serena
Lindsay Jelena Maria

Mary : Monica : Svetlana : Sania : Jennifer : Amelie
Roddick : Grosjean : David : Djokovic

Ok this is getting ridiculous. Roger said he likes SVETLANA, not Henin. And what could he learn from Henin? Sorry, but he already does everything much better than her, as do most man players.

Serena and Markus together forever

Its obvious that both players don't need tennis lessons from each other, but perhaps Justine can give Federer some tips, some little trics which can help him in Paris. And Federer can give Henin some tipcs and trics too.

But on the other hand I'm sure that both players can win that last tournament without these tips and trics. They were both pretty close in the past.

Right, Roger got 1 semi and 2 finals at French Open, and Justine has got 3 semis and 2 finals in Wimbledon.

Who will win their last lacked title first?
I think it will be Roger.

Re: Justine and Roger need to learn from each other?

They have both been twice to the final of the one Slam they have not won. So I don't think they need that many lessons... It's just a matter of being at their best at that one moment when it counts.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

Excuse me? Henin could learn a lot from Federer. How to serve, how to hit a forehand, tactics, volleying, how not to choke in big matches. He does EVERYTHING better than her, she could learn a lot.

Henin has the best forehand and volleys on the WTA tour. Her backhand has become her weaker side.

Everyone can learn a lot from Federer. Henin, the Williams, etc, all could learn from the greatest tennis player of all time.

First of all, No and No. BEst forehand is still Serena when it's on and best volleys are Mauresmo with Venus close behind. Second, even if she did have the best of those on the WTA tour, Federer's would still be better and he could still teach her how to hit those.

The same way you can teach a woman to run 100m in under 10 seconds?

Re: Justine and Roger need to learn from each other?

There's a big differenc. Roger is acknowledged as the second best clay court player in the world. Where it not for Rafa, he would probably have at least two FO titles by now. Justine faces a whole slew of opponents who can beat her on grass, Venus, Serena, Maria and who knows how many others.

Besides when you already have 12 majors under your belt, their ain't much you need to learn from anybody.

Oh please, her technique is far from perfect. There is a lot she could learn from other women on the tour, forget about the best male player.

she could teach him to dropshot or hit topspin lobs. I have never seen Fed hit a true drop shot or topspin lob
