Some quotes from Justine from an interview with a newspaper

"I've known my coach Carlos Rodriguez since I was 13, and yet I was shocked with his harsh analysis after Wimbledon. In the future, he never again wanted to see a repeat of that semifinal against Serena Willams. He was right."

"Winning in San Diego, without my coach, is one of the most important steps in my career. It proved that I had learned from Carlos's analysis. In the past, I wasn't able to change my strategy during a match. Now, I (by myself) knew how to found an answer to Kim Clijsters."

"You are looking at a new Henin. One example : for a long time I couldn't cope with the competition of Kim Clijsters. Playing against her suffocated me but now I don't have any troubles anymore when I play her."

"Clijsters's 1st place on the rankings doesn't do anything to me. I focus only on myself."

"I know some players don't like me. That's because I choose my own way. Many try to outplay me with power but I answer with intelligence."

I feel like the book I am reading think yourself to selfconfidence

sadly I am not naive enough for such stuf

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

That's good that she's able to win a tough match w/out coaching from the stands.

""I know some players don't like me. That's because I choose my own way. Many try to outplay me with power but I answer with intelligence."



Oh really? Well she's come up w/seven incorrect answers in a row to Venus Williams. What's so intelligent about running all over the court sqaush shotting balls back over the net.

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Wow, she just gets funnier and funnier.

It's like who is she trying to convince? The public or herself?

Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

as I said in the other thread. she had therapy if you just take over what a shrink says then you start to talk like this which is maybe better since it often pays off

I am a little bit jealous, I am too stubborn and always say yeah but.................... after the famous love yourself cliché talk

Seriously, is there a more arrogant player than Justine right now? She is so full of herself.

Is it the same arrogance as saying that you were 9000 notches below your level when you were beaten? Or saying that you weren't beaten but that you beat yourself? Or saying that you can go undefeated this season?

obviously u cant read. let me give you a little lesson

"my aim is to go undefeated this year" is not the same as "i can go undefeated this year". got it?

so she shoulda said "i plan to get beaten by that Belgian elf 2 times this year"? LMAO

Josh, re-read my message, especially the "right now" part. Currently, Serena is out of the tour, and Justine is doing a great job outdoing Serena in the arrogance department. Oh, how I would love it when someone spank Justine's a** at the USO!

This had me rolling on the floor. The Venus-Justine rivalry is too one sided to be called a rivalry. I dunno why, but I agree that Justine doesn't play 'intelligent' tennis against Venus. The last match I saw of them, she tried to out hit and out retrieve Venus . Get over the mental block Justine, you ain't gonna beat Venus (or Serena or Kim etc.) at her own game. I hope she brings a sturdier head to their next match.

this is presumably what most people think when they want serena to lose

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
