Boring YEC so far

Nobody can beat Henin ...

This will be the most boring Year End Championships since ages. That's really bad for tennis IMHO, because there is (at the moment) no player who can defeat Henin

Re: Boring YEC so far

I think two players can beat Henin. Ivanovic and Sharapova. They just need to play well.

My Favourites: Dancevic, Hantuchova, Gasquet, Golovin, Roddick, Sharapova, Stepanek

Re: Boring YEC so far

True, all the matches without Henin are error fests.

Re: Boring YEC so far

The round robin doesn't work for the women. Look at this match. Bartoli is playing 2 matches for $67,000. Is she even trying?
Tomorrow, is anyone watching Sveta-Dani playing to avoid last place?

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Boring YEC so far

Based on current form, I think both Sharapova and Ivanovic could beat Henin. But Sharapova is the only one I can foresee doing it.

I disagree. The match between Maria and Sveta was pretty well played. Maria had more winners than errors. Both were serving well. The errors in the match were mostly forced.

Maria Sharapova

Re: Boring YEC so far

Sharapova? Only because she beat Hantuchova and Kusnetzova?

I don't like Henin, but i guess she would "steamroll" Sharapova with her current form.

Ivanovic? Maybe on a great day for her, if she gets her nerves together and Henin has an average day

No, because she has beat Henin before and clearly has the ability to do so again.

Ivanovic and Sharapova are the only contenders left that can beat Henin. I'm not saying they will.

Re: Boring YEC so far

Double bagel at the YEC ... Quo vadis Tennis?

I really hope that we will have young guns next years who get in the Top 10 and are able to give Henin a fight for her money

Re: Boring YEC so far

The only player of note or the only player in the YEC who hasn't played Justine this year is Maria.

Maria Sharapova

jep I agree.
A few weeks ago a Daniela Thread was moved to the CP, because it didn't belong in GM.
But it would be pointless, if they would move the thread about maria, because this little "Sweet"Freak would open 2 or 3 new threads about Maria!
