Australian Open R1: Justine Henin def. Sania Mirza 5-7, 6-4, 6-1

Good effort from Sania in set 1 I s'pose but I'm glad Ju won. The tournament really needs her playing well, especially for the possibility of a QF VS Push.

AO R1: (11) Justine Henin d. Sania Mirza 57 63 61

Phew Justine.
Mirza was great in the first set and Justine was utter crap, although she had a set point serving at 54.
The second set was closer, but the wheels kind of came off for Sania and Justine raised to another gear in the 3rd.

Get better please.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

AO 1R : [11] Justine Henin survives Sania Mirza 5-7 6-3 6-1

Phewwwwwwwwww
Justine was terrible, although Sania's FH was on in most of that match.

I am just glad Justine managed to win... A win is a win, I guess, but fix that serve, that fh. She ain't winning the AO with that form even if the serve got a bit better towards the end.

Please improve.

Mirza, good display.

Next : Baltacha. Justine should win this in two, but we never know....

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

Lucky escape, Christine Sania should have won in 2, she was killing the ball and playing so well on her FH side

Great play by Sania in the first 2 sets. Her crappy serve lost her the 2nd and she just lost focus in the 3rd with Justine serving really by the end. If Sania keeps this up and works on her terrible serve and nonexistent transition game she could easily be top 20.

devastated to see Justine and her hideous multi color nightmare make it through. I hope her and her fake injury get bundled out b4 the finals or smashed to pieces by Clijsters in the final.

Phew, indeed.

Mirza's serve and fitness let her down in the third. Henin will pick it up by the time she reaches the QFs.

I think Justine did well to adapt to Mirza's game which just gives you NO RHYTHM... In the end, Mirza's ballbashing just got her own body tired and she was outclassed.
