Final set 2nd on match on Chatrier: WWW R3:[12] Maria Sharapova v Justine Henin [22]

This is the match everyone was hoping and waiting for!

After Maria won the resumption of her rain-delayed match (against Flipkens) 6-3 6-3, the Clay Tennis Gods decided to bless us with the most intriguing 3rd round match!

The 'Cow on Ice' is playing surprisingly very, very well, whereas the Queen of Clay and 4x RG champ is objectively sub-par.

So, who will reach the last 16: Maria or Justine?

Wouldn't it be ironic if Masha wins this?

I'd give Maria a better chance than I did at the start of the week, that's for sure.

Serena Williams: I'm going for team Sharapova 'coz she's hot
CAREER GRAND SLAM.

Henin had a 35 match win streak when they met at the 2008 AO.
Now she has a 23 match RG win streak, 39 straight sets since Sveta took a set in 2005

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
