Congrats.
But I have to say that this was one ugly match! These two girls were having an error fest in there. I sure hope for all the people watching there that Kim-Jelena provide some good tennis and spice it up a bit otherwise..what a waste of money.

I agree with Liana, not a pretty match with a lot of errors. Justine won the most important points, but this match was very even.

Anyway, congrats Justine

Allez Ju!

The match was worth watching. It wasn't a complete error-fest. It's just that playing a match at this level, you can't afford more than a couple of errors.

Nadia COULD have won this against a tired Justine, but did not seem to have the self-confidence to believe she could win. Nadia's serving had been awesome up until this match, but was just ordinary today. She kept getting ahead, then played a loose game to get pulled back by Justine.

When nadia looked like getting a break ahead at 4-4 in the 2nd, Justine looked really desperate - but got let-off again.

So Terminator JuJu continues her rampage!

I truly thought that Petrova might win this one or at least go to 3 sets. But again Juju finished it off in 2 sets. This says a lot about women's tennis IMO. I mean if an obviously tired player can finish off both the #12 and #13 on the rankings then I hardly think you can say that there is a lot of depth in the WTA.

Having said that I don't think Juju stands much of a chance against Kim in the final, Kim is trashing Dokic and seems as fresh as a daisy.

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

I also thought that Nadia would win this - just because Justine has been physically exhausted. I thought that we would be seeing an upset today here. But Justine pulled through somehow, it was Kim that couldnt pull through.

I never underestimate Justine - just because I said that she has been tired and I thought there might be an upset doesnt mean that I underestimate her always. Justine is an awesome player - and I respect her ability thats for sure.
