Damn. Justine had one of the easiest 2nd Round matches. I was hoping that she'd play a better claycourter (i.e. someone like Schiavone) so that we could get a sense of where her game is.
Yeah. Peng and Amanmarudova are higher-ranked and very dangerous, and they went to the Serbs. One of the toughest possible, Schiavone, went to Serena, who promptly beat her up. Very tough Azarenka went to Chakvetadze and Chaky choked. Castano is on form, and she's for Kuznetsova to deal with. This 2nd round is the easiest for Henin.
But good win to get her confidence back. First bagel for ages (I mean a bagel she served, not got stuffed with).
Ana Ivanovic is now retired.
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.
