Sharapova has figured Henin

My god, her serve out wide is killing Henin. She gets the short reply from Henin and just kills it. Way to go. Now hopefully Venus and Serena learn that soon.

Re: Sharapova has figured Henin

Venus did that a whole bunch at the US Open, especially against Jankovic.

Let them eat cake.

Re: Sharapova has figured Henin

I don't think so. Maria has loads of energy because she hasn't played much and Justine is exhausted because she's won her last 24 matches. That's the only reason. Justine has played 3 more tournaments and won them to Maria's 1st round 1!

Re: Sharapova has figured Henin

Justine is tired as hell and still keeping the match close. I don't think Sharapova's figured her out.

That theory would hold more weight if Henin's wins weren't spread out over 4 months and if Maria weren't playing her 4th day in a row while Justine is only playing her 2nd day in a row.

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

General fatigue. Heard of it? I don't think I've ever seen Justine miss an overhead either.

Re: Sharapova has figured Henin

Why would Justine have been fine in all of her matches here until this one?

Justine's fans are suddenly sounding like Serena's fans when Serena plays Justine.

Henin doesn't look too tired right now.

And what happened to the WTA? I can't believe they're not showing the final live on ESPN, The tennis channel, CBS.. or any other network.

I sure miss the days when the WTA Championship was played at the Madison Square Garden. TV coverage for American fans was much better back then.
