Oh, what a draw for Justine! Anna Kournikova in the FIRST ROUND?

Yes, Justine IS a better player than Anna, but Anna so often can manage one good match per tournament -- and that's all she'd need to knock Justine OUT! And Justine's confidence may be shot after losing to Kim in straight sets.

Will those who know the most about Justine Please, say something Reassuring here??? I am desperate for reassurance!

wow, henin/kournikova in first round. Very tough for each of them. Didn't Justine beat Anna in US open of 2000(?) for her first big win? should be a fun match to watch!

The WHOLE CROWD will be against our Justine! You know how the Aussies always are about ANNA. I don't know if I can stand to watch it!

KIM'S Situation is better, and I can picture her in her 2nd GS final in a year!

I hadn't thought about the crowd before. You're right, the crowd is usually behind Anna.

But GOOOO JUSTINE! I believe in you, I'm convinced you can pull off an easy win.

And GOOO KIM!!

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

It is true a lot of Aussie blokes like Anna, but you have to remember that tennis crowds in Australia tend to also have a high proportion of people who are quite educated about the game and will know the rising stars, so I think a lot of people will be cheering for Justine too.

In any event, go Kim and go Justine! It's just a pity you have to meet each other before the final.

In their match at the USOpen the crowd was behind Justine so who knows, they might actually prefer her over Anna.

Allez Justine!

Go Kim!

Thumbs up

I think it also helps that they are first up! At 11am, the crowd will be less rowdy altogether than later on. The closer this match gets, the more confident I feel about Justine winning it.

Nice for Kim to snag the marquee night match position!

ALLEZ JUSTINE!!! GO KIM!!!

Tonight's the night!
