I watched the nightly recap of tennis on ESPN. I freakin LOVE her backhand!! Its so ....I don't know....Georgeous!! I love the way she whips it down the line or cross court. Last year I thought I liked Amelies game more, but I'm thinking Henin has the edge this year, even though I still like Amelies Game.
I like her backhand but I admire players who don't have to grimace while making it and still do it one-handed.
I really don't like the face Justy makes when she hits it because she looks like she's taking every ounce of energy in her body to do it. She's short and she's not exactly muscular but it appears that it takes a lot of effort to make it so pretty. It's a good shot, no doubt.

I think Amelie makes hers look easier because she's got more fire power, she's taller, and she's really more muscular than Justine. But it's amazing how someone in Justine's stature can conjure up such an effective and powerful shot nonetheless. Not to mention beautiful.
Justine has also really improved her serve as well. Her backhand is awesome - she has really improved alot in the last year. Congrats to her!!!

My only problem with Justine is her service motion.
The way she makes her body all crooked.......painful to watch, I keep thinking she might break soon.
Otherwise adore the backhand and remembers very well how she overpowered Venus with her forehand during thier Wimbledon rematch last year during one point.
The announcers were saying how her backhand was her only weapon, guess she heard them.
