Sharapova stopped Henin's all-time RG record of most consecutive sets wins on 40

Between 2nd set of R4 match vs Kuznetsova at French Open 2005 and todays R3 RG/2010 2nd set match vs Sharapova, Belgian Justine Henin has 40-sets wining strike in Paris. That is more consecutive sets wins at Roland Garros than anybody (man or woman) have in history!

Well done Justine... well done Maria!

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Helen Moody had 40, Justine would have beat that record today had she won in straight sets.

Hopefully Maria breaks her RG win streak also
Just like she stopped her win streak at AO 08

Maria Sharapova
Career Slam Winner

W'04, US'06, AO'08, RG'12

Re: Sharapova stopped Henin's all-time GS record of most consecutive sets wins on 40

If you look at that cow on ice thread, I said watching Maria get to match point on Dinara in 2008, that Maria can win on this surface. Not when Henin is on her best, but no one beats that on clay.

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

175 people said she would win in the WWW. She hasn't won yet and she hasn't been underestimated.
