Angry what a shit* first semifinal match....

Venus vs. Justine, it was SO boring. I mean it started off well, but then it took it's same way as usual.
There were practically no emotioning point and it ended up 6-3, 6-3! It was like Justine would get some sort of advantage and she would not concrete it.
Still congratulations Venus, she played the best match of both weeks, but I would have liked to watch a better and more entertaining match....

Hope Serena and Kim can kick it off!

I agree it was terrible... it's always the same boring scenario... I'm so disappointed, I thought Henin would do a little better lol

I'm sure they both did everything they could to play a good match, but indeed the quality was not that high. I really can't see Venus win in the final.

Congrats Henin on a very good tournemant.
Congrats Venus for reaching the AO final for the first time.

From Vee's perspective, she could never get any rhythm on her strokes, so she made alot of errors. Henin was too caught up trying to carry out her gameplan to play her natural game!

while i concede that Justine vs Venus was not full of excitement, i think that Henin vs Ruano-Pascual or Kim vs Coetzer were both as dull as dishwater. this match tonite doesn't even come close.

but in general, the men have been delivering better and more exciting tennis i agree...

No, only the LOSER played like sh*t, joaco.

Hmmm, a WILLIAMS win is always sooo boring, eh?

ATROCIOUS! At least the men who have TONS Of power control their games and actually play points. Justine and Venus are WAY too inconsistent.

I must concede that I have been watching random mens matches and more often then not they end in winners, they are def a leg up on the women, maybe a leg and a foot and a baby toe.
