Venus v Justine-who will win semi-final?

The odds go to Venus, but Justine has shown tenacity. Who will be the AO finalist?

um I think it will go to Venus, probably in two sets...
I think it will bea close two-setter, but I think that Venus will prevail.
why? because even though Justine showed tremendous grit and determination to beat Lindsay the other day, she still showed some nerves, and Venus isn't going to give her as many chances as Lindsay did.
plus, Ms. Venus is on fire.
anyway, I think it should be a good match and wish both well. I love watching Justine play and Justine vs. Venus matches have always been entertaining..

I hope its Venus, she will have to serve well and get rid of some of those outrageous errors she had against Dani. Some of them were just wild.

She really needs to work on that forehand. Maybe she needs a grip change. She sometimes looks like she is falling back instead of leaning into the shot.

Good Luck Venus...make your first OZ final

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

I think Venus will take this one. She's the better player and her road to the semi's has been easier. I hope Justine will win though (or make a good/great match of it at least)

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

I'm actually in for Justine!! Just as long as Justine does her best...I'm okay with her performance. But of course, I would very much love her to win this!

Allez Justine!!

If you can get in the semi's with such a hard draw, you can get in the final as ell! It's going to be though but I believe in her

And if she loses ... she played already an GREAT tournament in my eyes


@ Justine

Roland Garros '03,'05,'06,'07
US Open '03,'07 / Australian Open '04
Olympic Gold '04 /
YEC Madrid '06,'07
41 titles

All credit to Justine for the way she pulled that match against Lindsay, she played awesome. But, Linday had the chance to serve out the match and screwed up, and that has been Linday's biggest problem since her return from injury.

Venus tends to play her best tennis when she gets tight. Anybody remember the way she closed out her seminal match at the US Open last year against Mauresmo?

I can't help thinking that Justine has a chance, because she is playing really well, but Venus should win this one in straing sets. It's going to be a good match.

Justine Henin will win it, and go on to the finals... Hopefully we have an all Belgian Final instead of this Williams Sisters crap that everyone on earth except the newbie tennis fans are tired of.

Justine should feel little pressure. If she is relaxed, she could do it, but I would expect Venus to pull it out

For the first time in my life, I will root for Venus here.
Venus will win for sure, or If Henin has more drama in her, maybe she could win this too. Henin is just such a loser.

You will never accomplish in your whole life what she has done in 2 years, you're the loser.

Oh really!!!!! If tennis is only your life, then I will really never accomplish that. BUT I have better accomplishment in my life other than tennis. Besides she never won any majors yet. More drama will do her maybe. She might be nominated in the comming Oscars, of course thats a great accomplishement.

I'm just pointing out that you have no right to call her a loser.
She's in the semifinals for godsakes that means she HASN'T lost (yet)! Davenport on the other hand...
