The first important WTA match of 2002
Venus Williams vs Justine Henin
World #3 vs. World #7.
Wimbledon Finals Re-match
This is the first WTA matchup in 2002, with ranking points and quality points on the line. A re-match of the 2001 Wimbledon final. The biggest star on the tour vs one of last year's breakout players. The first chance to play mindgames with your competitors. You know this one will be on the telly in Sydney girls locker. If one or both of them stink up the joint, this match is an early season footnote. If they both play well, however, this match will offer some important info about the year both players could have.
Venus won the last two GS titles.
If they both play well, and Venus wins, she sends a message to all the players at Sydney.
- "The Goddess is in the house."
Justine is on record as saying she's going to end this year in the top three.
If they both play well, and Justine wins, she sends a message too.
- "I'm one of the top three players RIGHT NOW."
"You don't tug on Superman's cape. You don't spit into the wind. You don't pull the mask off the Lone Ranger..."
The Goddess is in the House.
