WTA Notes On The Final & The Finalists

The world No.4 is seeded No.1 at a WTA Tour event for only the second time in her career, although she has been the No.2 seed on eight occasions. As you can see below, she has reached the final both times she has been No.1 seed and four of the eight times she has been seeded No.2.

Here is a look at Henin-Hardenne’s performances in WTA Tour events where she was seeded No.1 or No.2
in the singles event:

Year City Rd. reached Final result Score
2001 Hawaii-USA Final l. to Testud 63 20 retired (thigh injury)
2003 Dubai-UAE Final vs. Seles ??

Year City Rd. reached Final result Score
2001 ’s -Hertogenbosch-NED Final d. Clijsters in final 64 36 63
2001 Toronto-CAN QF l. to Seles 16 62 62
2001 Linz-AUT 2r l. to Tulyaganova 67(1) 60 63
2002 Gold Coast-AUS Final l. to V.Williams 75 62
2002 Paris [Indoors]-FRA QF l. to Seles 64 63
2002 Antwerp-BEL Final l. to V.Williams 63 57 63
2002 Amelia Island-USA Final l. to V.Williams 26 75 76(5)
2002 ’s -Hertogenbosch-NED SF l. to Daniilidou 46 76(9) 63

(1) Justine Henin-Hardenne (BEL #4) vs. (4) Monica Seles (USA #11)

This is Monica’s 85th career singles final on the WTA Tour, while it is Justine’s 14th. Seles owns 53 singles titles, Henin-Hardenne six. Seles has a 4-1 win-loss record over her Belgian opponent, but Henin-Hardenne boasts a victory in their most recent encounter on the grass at Wimbledon in 2002. Both women did it tough to reach the final, Seles having to see Amélie Mauresmo retire with a leg injury in her semifinal, while Henin-Hardenne needed three sets to overcome a rejuvenated Jennifer Capriati in the evening match. While Henin -Hardenne has lost two more sets and spent two more hours on court than Seles, the Belgian is brimming with confidence and swinging freely, so expect a
tight tussle between these power-hitters.

R16 d. (Q) Anca Barna (GER #58) 16 62 64 (1:52)
QF d. (5) Anastasia Myskina (RUS #10) 61 64 (1:20)
SF d. (3) Jennifer Capriati (USA #6) 75 46 64 (2:26)
Total games: 74
Won/lost: 42/32
Total time on court: 5:38

R16 d. Francesca Schiavone (ITA #40) 63 62 (1:04)
QF d. Iroda Tulyaganova (UZB #52) 61 75 (1:22)
SF d. (2) Amélie Mauresmo (FRA #7) 63 22 ret. (1:02)
Total games: 49
Won/lost: 33/16
Total time on court: 3:28

WOW--2 less hrs. than Justine!


I am a sinner too!
Jesus answered and said to him[Nicodemus, a Pharisee],"Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again[of the Spirit/above], he cannot see the kingdom of God."--John 3:3

Good works can't save you from hell!! Jesus loves you and wants to be in your heart and mind!!!

I will worship Jesus forever!
