no one should be hyped, unless they can consitently beat the top players, they should not be hyped, 1 match means nothing....
This is a situation like last year, when Patty Schnyder beat Serena here. It was like Patty, she has found her form and soon will be in the top 10. Where is patty now? It can be said more so w/ Justine, but 1 win does not prove anything. The Fact that justine played well today, but knows Serena didnt going into the next match, justine will have confidence, but she will also know, it is still going to be tough b/c Serena can come out playing very well lets not even talk about the hypes, if we say stop them, do you think they even will?
The media doesn't seem to like a small player winning because that destroys their theory that it's all about power and size, and the word finesse sounds bitter to some people's eyes.
Justine was predicted to be the player to drop off the top 10.
The she was the one to drop off the top 5.
When they mention who had chances to beat Serena, they always said Capriati (even though she has failed like 7 times in a row), Davenport (even when it was clear she wasn't at her best), Kim and Amelie, Justine (and Chanda) are never mentioned.
no, Justine will always be underrated, even if she wins a GS. It's fine for me, I like the preasure on other players
pd: I would love to hear Mary Joe's predictions now
And yet Kim has proven time and again to be just a bit better.
That's right!!! Wasn't it Kim who made 2 GS semis and a final of a Wimbledon and consistently having defeated Capriati and Seles!?!?! Oh that's right!!! It's not Kim, it's Justine!!! How could I have forgotten!?!?
no she won't. not until she beats a Williams sister on another surface besides clay. clay is her best surface and the Williams worst surface. she will always be a threat on clay, but not so on other surfaces. Clijsters has beaten them on other surfaces so she has a little advantage.
