I mean Canada has high-bouncing, slow HCs similar to RA (as Seles, Legend, and Sarin have all done well in Canada as in Australia) and Justine was able to deal with Bagelie just fine, and she was not the one with the better from coming in.

Wonderful highlights! Two other great matches they played was in Eastbourne final in 07, with Justine winning at 7-6 third set and the WTC final in Madrid in 06.

Yes Mauresmo fell apart late on in the match but that was always the case with her at the French she couldn't handle the pressure there.
Mary Joe went into an amazing form after being down 1-6 1-5. In her next match Mary Joe beat Arantxa 62 62 and was very close from beating Graf in the final, which tells you the level she reached from that.

This match is not the CHOKE (a las Wimbledon 93 final) you and a lot people imagine. This was voted the match of the year in Tennis Magazine in 1993.

Sabatini’s five match points came and went and Fernandez won a third set 10-8. This wasn’t the first time Sabatini had choked on the big stage. She previously lost the 1991 Wimbledon final to Steffi Graf having served for the title. Twice.
Result: Fernandez d. Sabatini 1-6, 7-5, 10-8.
Find me anything that Mauresmo did that's on par with that CHOKE!
Just for the laughts, Mauresmo was a set a break in the semis of Wimbledon two years in a row, and she ended up losing.
In 2004 alone she choked against Serena being a set and a break up twice.

Mauresmo also lost a number of matches against Dementieva with some huge chokes as well if my memory serves well.

That being said i think definetly Mauresmo had the greater carreer, and i enjoyed both women kind of play, since they were both similar, saving the differences. Mauresmo more firepower, Gaby with the better hands..
