Crowd favorite? Who knows.
Who will win? I know who I've got my money on.

Re: Aussie Favorite: Serena or Henin?

When Serena made that superhero comeback against Clijsters in the semis from 0-5 down in the third I think, in 2003. (Some people in) the crowd were made harsh comments when she was about to serve, I always thought that was racist. I was kinda confirmed by the Justine matchup in semis of the next Grand Slam that year, we all know how that went.

Heck, maybe the other person is right, and they hate Henin for retiring 2 years ago, I highly doubt it thoughh

Re: Aussie Favorite: Serena or Henin?

Because both players are so mentally tough I doubt it would matter to them who the crowd would root for.

As for who'd win? Well History suggests that Justine would be the fav but that's what head to heads are like. Who knows? Serena might win the next three matches they play. But to get a better indication, I'd like to see how both players fair in the earlier rounds of the AO.

Re: Aussie Favorite: Serena or Henin?

Objectively? Justine.

Subjectively? Justine

But that's why Serena will be so dangerous.

Re: Aussie Favorite: Serena or Henin?

As of right now, the earliest that could be is a QF. So they would both have time to remind the audience that both of them have done some things that have caused their character to be called into question. But if they both play well, and they're both nice, the Aussies will give both fiar play.


If we get a repeat of 'The Hand', or Serena's comments about the French 'just wanting to stay home and make wine' (At a time when they were deploying forces in Afghanistan in support of the USA) at Roland Garros, that player is going to LOSE support pretty damn quick though.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
