This is the best time to get Henin, early in a slam. I still somehow think Kuzzy will fold though

Really, don't even look at me...

Sveta will fold like a cheap deck of cards.

Henin of course. Crazy there are 2 polls for such a no brainer of a match. Kuznetsova is and always will be the worst 2 slam winner in history (not that that is so bad, 2 slams is still pretty good).

I love cocky and ignorant comments like these that get bumped up when that person is wrong.

At least Sveta's not the one who who was a few games away from losing in the first round.

Hot shit. Juju will step it up I think; she's been in Sveta's head for years, and we all know Sveta's head.

Sveta has the game to beat Henin in two sets...

Too bad her head is always in Siberia every time she plays Justine



Ivanovic - Görges - Agnieszka - Li - Bencic

Venus - Kvitova - Golden Flowers - A.K. Schmiedlova - Stephens - Stosur - Woz

I agree that Sveta's chances are improved because we are early in a Slam.

But this is still Sveta vs. Justine. Sveta will likely fold from a winning position. This will likely be a terrible tennis match, as almost all of their matches inevitably are.

LOL you make it out like Kuznetsova is the better or more talented player. If she were she would be the one with 7 slams. As it is she a miracle 2 slam winner who was gifted one slam by a Davenport thigh injury and won the other beating Safina of all people. For almost 5 years between her 2 slam wins she didnt beat any of Serena, Venus, Davenport, Mauresmo, Jankovic, Ivanovic, Sharapova, or anyone important in a slam (beating Chakvetadze and a choking Vaidisova to make her 2 finals between) so expected she also never beats Justine in one.

Justine's game is better than Kuznetsova in everything except the forehand where they are probably tied.

If Sveta plays her best AND Justine does not play well, Sveta can win this match... She maybe the worst 2 slam winner of all time, but she has some few victories against Justine....

Obviously Henin is the better player, but she's not unbeatable against Sveta!

Kuzzie will lead and then get a look in her eye, which Henin will read as "too scared to win."

Henin in three.
