(If you don't particularly like either finalist) Who do you want to win?

As much as I am getting tired of Serena winning this all the time, I can't forgive what Henin did to Zheng so, c'mon Serena! I prefer Serena's attitude and personality

Re: (If you don't particularly like either finalist) Who do you want to win?

If Serena wins on Saturday, she will have won the tournament 3 times out of the last 4 years - or if you want to look at it a different way - 4 times out of the last 6 years. As much as that is admirable, it gets kinda monotonous. I'm not a fan of either, as such, so I don't really care who wins. I guess it'll be a greater 'story' if Justine wins, but frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.

I dislike Justine more, but on the other hand if she wins it mean Lena lost to the eventual champion, which sucks less.

Frankly, it's just killing time until the men's final, which I also can't decide whom I want to win, but it's because I like all the possible contenders.

Yeah, same here. I cannot WAIT for Sunday. I hope Saturday's final is a good'n, but as for who wins... meh.

Great thread idea. I just assume you love one and hate the other, and respect them both. I forget there are people who feel equally about them. Either they like them the same or don't like either of them. I'm currious who they are for too?

If I had to choose, it would be Justine. But only because I think someone winning a Grand Slam as often as Serena wins the Aussie Open is a little boring. No offence to her fans or anything, though. If Serena wins, it will be because she deserves it and she's #1. But in the meantime... Go Justine??? Yay...(!)

Although I respect them, I don't like either of them. But I would have to say Serena.

Well I used to hate Henin for what she put my JJ through, but I still respect her for her technically amazing talent. I'm not a fan of her coach either

I admire Serena, but nowhere near dislike her as much as Henin, but she beats my faves all the time too (see my sig) and it's like everytime these play eachother I root for Serena, I enjoy it when they play because I can tell inside Serena really wants to show her who's boss. But yeah, I don't like Serena because she seems arrogant sometimes and always beats my faves.

Still, instead of putting it 50/50, I think I'd prefer 75/25 in Serena's favour simply because I don't want someone else to come from retirement to win their 1st GS entry (although I was happy for Kim)

I prefer Serena but I'm not a fan of either player so don't really care.

I dont care to be honest. This board is going to suck for a few days no matter who wins.

They just better make it worth staying up for.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: (If you don't particularly like either finalist) Who do you want to win?

if it wasnt for Carlos Rodriguez, I would like Henin so much better. Il m'énerves complètement!

So anyway, I envy the ones who don't care who wins. You don't need an ambulance on call come Saturday night.

Re: (If you don't particularly like either finalist) Who do you want to win?

I'm not a fan of both players, but I think Serena is a great champion and a good player. And I just hate Justine, so definatly I prefer Serena to win this. And plus if Justine wins she will do almost the same Clijsters did when she comeback last year and I will hate Justine even more if she wins.
