told ya the finals would be pathetic..

Pff people, now it's time to admit..

It wasn't that high quality match.. And according to some member, they were hitting like two juniors out there.. And I'm sure last year's finals was better, even because of scores.. The first set had a real drama, while in this year's Justine completely was lucky to play a not-in-form Kim.. 6-0 6-4

Well.. after all there's nothing I can do but say : congrats Justine.. I hope your mom saw what you did for her



But wait until you play Serena again

Pathetic? Nope. Justine was in-form and took complete control never giving Kim a chance. As far as juniors... C'mon you can't even think you're serious with that comparison.

A new Grand Slam Champion being crowned is NEVER pathetic.

It wasn't me.. It was another member who said that.. What? And you think you're serious with that comparsion either? Of course a new Grand Slam winner is being born, but it wasn't as exciting as some people thought..

Nice of you becool, using understatement to describe what was truly a pathetic match...but sorry I can't join you...... .for a year now I've been listening to complaints about Williams /Williams finals only to subjected to this All Belgium crap ( and they're not even related ,like distant cousins or something) , the only all willaims final that could be this bad would be Serena vs Oracene and even that might be more competitive . Dear god if you promise to deliver me from having to view anymore crappy Belgian finals I promise to improve my second serve ....well maybe I'm being to harsh and it was actually rigged .Prince Albert ordered Kim to lose or somethong LOL!!!!

Pro-Belgian fans are totally missing the point.

This is what Williams fans have been having to listen to for the past year.....so, just be happy whoever you wanted was in the final.

Because this stuff is gonna happen regardless.

I think that the final was disappointing, however I don't think too many non-Williams fans will be thinking that they wished now that an all Williams final had taken place. Just because the final was shorter this year than last year does not mean last years was better or more dramatic. Last years final was worse to watch, but the all Williams finals have got progressively better so maybe any future Belgian final will be better. The Williams fans will complain about the standard of the final and how boring it was without one of the sisters, but at the end of the day, the Williams were not good enough to get to the final this year.

tennis is rarely as exciting and drama-filled as when Serena is present...

BORING... I had no interest in the match and the ratings will show. The match needed a Williams. Thank god this Clay season is over and the sisters can go along domination Wimbledon and the US Open.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

Wasn't an all time great but wasn't "pathetic" by any means. Justine played very well indeed - Kim didn't, but she's not the first or last person to be overcome in a slam final (no names mentioned). Whoever said it was like juniors hasn't watched much juniors, frankly. Depends on what style you like and if you love Justine's you'd enjoy the match. A new champ! How exciting!

OMG bunch of losers! Those two girls deserved to be in the final! Okay, it was not a high quality match, but wait and see! They will be back!!! And Serena has to watch her steps, cause Kim is on her way to the number one position!!
