Justine About Match Vs Williams

In an interview for belgian tv Justine said the following, (I can't be bothered to translate the questions too):

"I played a couple of tough matches, and I am a bit tired."

"I played focused and aggressive and I am glad I won easily, it is the best possible preparation for the final."

"I didnt expect to be in the final again right away, but I did book my flight back to Europe on sunday (laughs)."

"I was curious to see how the tournament would go, I took it step by step and it's fantastic to play another final here."

"It will be tough against the best in the world. She is a real champion. She proved that this tournament when she had to fight back against Azarenko. I am very happy to find her on my road because she is the best. I look forward to the match and will try to take the title."

Good sportmanship and great respect for Serena, some of us in this forum could take an example of that. I think the Serena-JH rivalry is more between the fans than between the players.


EDIT
Monirena Wiles:
Here's what Serena had to say about Justine. You can add it to the first post if you want since it show the mutual respect they BOTH have toward each other now:

"I definitely think of her as a rival. I think we bring out the best game in each other. I think that we both just play our hearts out. I think that's what creates a good rivalry."


"What qualities don't she have? She has everything from really a serve, which you might not think, but she has a really good serve, to both great backhand and forehand."

"She's playing really well. She's doing great. Well, it's just been amazing. I mean, her and Kim, such a great story. Justine hasn't been gone that long, but it's still a good story."

"So I just always meet her in the quarterfinals. I don't know how many times we've played in the finals. I know we played once in Miami in the finals. She was doing everything and beating me really bad. I managed somehow to come back. I don't know how. I don't really think about one match in particular."

Re: Justine About Match Vs Williams

She spoke very nicely last night about Serena, and yes I do think the rivalry is more between the fanbases than the actual players.

Of course it is. That's part of the fun. I'm sure you don't actually think that ALL the Red Socks hate the Yankees or vice versa? Unfortunately, I can't say the same thing about the fans when their all in the same stadium.

Re: Justine About Match Vs Williams

I wish we could have GS final between these two with just justine and serena fans in the building. That would be awesome to watch, and i truly mean it. Being a new york ranger fan, i am obliged to hate the devils and hate their fans , it's what makes sports great, the rivalry between the teams/players and the fans. I love it.

No more argument from me.
ps I wasn't actually suggesting legal charges should be brought against her. It's more a term of phrase.

pps we have that too x

Re: Justine About Match Vs Williams

I saw her post-match interview with Pam Shriver, and for those that didn't see it, trust me that Henin can hardly contain her excitement at playing Serena. I think she has been training specifically for moments like tomorrow, and I don't think she will show Serena any mercy...

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”
