Prediction: Justine will beat both Williams sisters on a hard/indoor surface in 2004

You heard it here first. Justine is going to get in the Williams sisters' face on a non-clay surface next year.

If she doesn't do in Australia (where both sisters are likely to be rusty) she won't do it. That's my "prediction"

Guess Justine is gonna have a decent chance against the sisters any given day though she will still be the underdog until she really proves that she has caught up to them in not just rankings.

Only if she continues her unethical play. Beat the cheat. She has been unethical in matches against Serena, Jennifer Capriati, and Kim Clijsters.

Itīs gonna be VERY VERY though to do that. When was the last time she even took a set off a sister on non-clay surfaces?!

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Give her at least more chances. She wasn't given enough opportunities to prove herself this year. Sure she was beat on a non-clay surface on every occasion she faced a Williams but it's not like she played them 10 times or anything. She seems mentally tougher as well as physically than their last meetings. So I don't expect their meetings to be as one-sided as they used to be next year.

Agreed, but she has played Serena like 5 times on non-clay surfaces and ainīt been pretty.

Itīs only hopeful that sheīs been improving.

Always bet on black!

Exactly! Because Serena doesnīt play with you. On clay Justine can keep bringing balls back and stuff....but on the other surfaces?! Canīt handle Serenaīs pace.

Always bet on black!

That's a bold prediction but who knows what confidence Justine has gotten from winning the US open. Maybe she's got it in her, you never know.

Still, can't see it myself .
