Would you consider Justine a mainly clay court wonder?

I've read some comments in this about how some of you reckon she aint all that great on other surfaces despite the fact she's won the US open,gone undefeated on hard courts in the american summer. So whats the score?

Good luck to:
Andre, Kim, Lleyton, Vera, Marat, Amelie

She's done well on a lot of surfaces. Clay may be her best considering she'll be favored for the French Open over any of the others this year but she still won the US open this year and she's done well in other surfaces too.

Of course she's just a clay court wonder. All she's sone on other surfaces is to win US Open, reach the final of Wimbledon and the semi of Australian Open, not to mention that she has titles on all surfaces. So outside the clay, she's no threat, right?

Of course i think she's a major threat on all surfaces. Not how some ppl see it though.

Hmm, difficult question. I think that she is more a threat for BIGGER titles on clay than on any other surface. Yeah, she did win the Open and Canada....but we all know that´s because the sisters weren´t there.

Some smart people wanna come with the:"Yeah, but she beat the same players the sisters use to beat. So now these players are lesser player?"-thingies.

YES! When the sisters beat up EVERYBODY than they are lesser to SISTERS. So if you wanna become the new standard-barrier than you have to beat the SISTERS on those surfaces.

Always bet on black!

It's the only surface she has a chance of defeating the sisters.

She is the best female claycourter and clay is the only? (don't know for sure) where she has beaten the sisters. She is a threat everywhere, she plays good on all surfaces certainly, but defeating the sisters goes (for the moment) I think only on clay and maybe grass. Although she has won the US open, I don't see her capable of beating a healthy Vee or Serena on harcourt, but Justine might prove me wrong in the future.

The truth has been laid bare: Only chance for Justine against a Williams: on clay.

Always bet on black!

She's the best on clay, that's a proven fact! but i don't think she's an "only clay court player" far from that! She won title on every surface and dominated the summer hardcourt season, so she's a multi-surface player i think

I suppose this question has got nothing to do with whether or not she can beat the Williams sisters on a particular surface. If she were a one court wonder, I would think pretty much everyone else would be a no-court wonder. She's more of an all courter then a single-court wonder.

Hi Miss! How´s life been?!

See my posts above....she isn´t an one-surface wonder, but she is a BIGGER threat for BIG titles on clay than on other surfaces.

Always bet on black!
