Please tell me why is

Justine so obsess with Serena Williams. Justine, Serena is not thinking about you she and her sister are making they celebrity rounds on all the talk shows. This girl really has a problem with Serena.


I'm not afraid to play Serena on hard court anymore because I feel more confident right now. But probably she always played her best tennis here at the US Open.

She is dealing with her own personal obstacles which happen to be the Williams sisters.

Look at the question, stupid!!!!!

Q. Having beaten Serena a couple times this year, do you wish you could face her on this court? Is there a disappointment you don't have that challenge ahead of you?
JUSTINE HENIN‑HARDENNE: You know, I'm just try to stay focused on my next match. I try to forget about everything else because Serena is not here. That's not the fault of anybody. I mean, she's injured. It's really bad for her, first, and for the tournament, and for all the players. For sure, we want a very high level of tennis. But I think we'll have a high level of tennis in this tournament. I hope so.

That's okay. We have to fight every day, in every match, even if Serena is not here.

I'm not afraid to play Serena on hard court anymore because I feel more confident right now. But probably she always played her best tennis here at the US Open.

Allez Ju!

Even though she was asked about Serena, that end statement just sounded like she was trying to convince herself that she wasn't afraid to play Serena on hardcourts anymore, it really wasn't relevant to the rest of her reply in which she had taken the high road.

Exclamation

The rmdia is tyring to start someting between her and Serena and that goes back to the French Open and Justine brought this all on herself. If she didn't do what she did and knew how to handle the media better, she wouldn't find herself always being asked questions about Serena. Notice they don't ask her questions about Venus and the reason why is she hasn't found a way to beat her since May 2001.

I don't care what journalists ask her I hated when people are trying to make a fight AGAIN when there is no reason and when they are putting things she said out of the context!

In all fairness to Justin (and the good Lord knows I am not a fan), she only answered a question that the reporter posed to her.

Shame on you alleycat for not posting the entire question and answer.

I see no problem with this. She is just admitting that before she had weak willed no confidence lack of self belief yellow livered coward no back bone having lack of self esteem problem when facing serena but now she is over that.

Exactly, although I don't know if she really believes it. Serena really put things back in perspective for Justine at Wimbledon.
