Justine and Serena's underestimation cost either one the tournament
I really don't feel there's anything wrong with Justine besides getting caught yet again looking ahead as she did at Wimbledon last year.
She knew playing against Serena could be the match that could forecast where the rest of her year is going.
She didn't focus fully on Safina whose a dangerous player on clay.
Serena expected to play Justine in the quarters and she got Safina.
She assumed it would be a romp in the park like it was last year at RG.
I'm not trying to insult Safina but everytime she's beaten a top player on clay, Sharapova, Justine, Serena, she's had to comeback to do it.
Which to me says that these top players have lost focus for whatever reason and given Safina a chance to establish herself in the match.
It's not like she has a plan B. She hits the same heavy ball pretty much all the time.
If it's going in, you can still find a way to beat her.
