Afrer a Set and a game, the match isn't as good as I expected it to be

I can understand the first few games being a lil nerve jangling, but since then both the players have made a lot of errors.

There hasn't been a single really good long rally either.

Still, there are flashes of brilliance but the level is not being sustained.

I'm not young enough to know everything.

Re: Afrer a Set and a game, the match isn't as good as I expected it to be

Justine's putting in a good effort, but I just can't see how she has any chance to win this match. There are flashes of really great shots from her, but overall, the weight of her shots just isnt there. She's not doing anything to really bother Serena. Serena is just standing there and tee-ing off. If she wants to win slams on a fast surface, she'll need to get the weight on her shots back. Oh, and getting some first serves in would be nice too.

talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Lol I guess that's another way she can win - by going on a rampage like that. Still don't know if she can keep it up though.

Het is een regelrechte SCHANDE dat de Belgische gepensioneerdenbond het vrouwentennis naar een hoger niveau moet tillen. Alle andere tennisbabe’s zouden in de grond moeten zinken van schaamte.

It wasn't that bad. These are high-stakes affairs. There's a lot of tension. There are very few perfect finals.

The last couple of sets were very good. Serena v Justine is a classic rivallry which hopefully we'll see play out as the year goes by.

Manchester City 2011 FA Cup winners! 2012 Premier League Champions! 2014 League Cup winners and Premier League Champions! At last!!!!!
