Well finally Mary gets another shot at :bigwave: ... Justine better watch out because Mary is in hot form after knocking out Nadia and Venus. I predict that Justine will be the third top 10 seed that Mary sends packing from Athens. Mary will win 7-5, 6-4.

I hope Justine beats Mary in less than an hour, then looks into a TV camera and says, "That's how it's done, Venus."

I hope Justine wins... but you never know until you see the results... a lot of funky shit has happened in Athens lately, so you will never know who will win. But I'm giving Justine the advantage!

I hope Justine wins, but Mary has been really impressive in this tourny, so...
Please win, Juju!! :kiss:

I had predicted Mary to win against Venus because I thought there would be no Venus-Justine match here, and since I had predicted an easy win from Justine... ;)

As for tomorrow, Justine will be just too good for Mary. She may be a little bit rusty, but she seems to be playing at least as well as in Indian Wells, where she beat Myskina 6-1 6-1 and "outplayed" Davenport in the final, where Lindsay admitted there is nothing you can do when Justine is playing like this.

Indeed, Pratt or whoever, there's nothing to do when Justine is playing like this.
Of course, there will be a day where Justine will be off, due to her lack of match play, but it's not tomorrow.

I expect Justine to win this in 2 sets, 6-3 6-4.

Mary will be brimming with confidence with her win over Venus, Justine's results have been impressive after coming back from injury but I think Mary will win it, she seems to have found her form at the right time.

Justine should win. But hey, Venus should have at least given Mary a bagel or two but look what happened?! (SHOCKED)

But I still say Justine.

Aug 18th, 2004, 08:46 PM
I want Justine to win more than anything but you never know: Mary can be a tricky player as she's shown today. So, allez, Walloon Warrior.

I would give the advantage to Justine. Mary has been playing formidably, but if Justine is on, there is just nothing you can do.
And I expect Justine to be on tomorrow. Straight sets for Juju.

Uh, I would call 6-3; 6-4, 6-0; 6-1, and 6-0; 6-2 pretty impressive:o .

Besides, Justine MUST win this match so that AMelie doesn't get no. 1, which was really my only wish for the entire olympics.

I would usually give the advantage to Justine, but I think the fast ground is a big plus for Mary. I saw her play in Filderstadt last year and I think she can make very good results on fast grounds.

AMEN!! It's bad enough one choke artist (Kim Clijsters) made it to #1, but two? That would be the last nail in the "Best 17" coffin. ;)

:haha: That will be funny but I don't think she will saying that at least not in England anyway. However I hope Justine will beat Mary tomorrow.

Mary lifts when she is representing france. i believe that she will cause an upset and defeat Justine, she is on a roll. GO MARY.

I just saw her play Venus, and my she is hitting so freaking hard right now. If she plays like she does today, she can push Justine to three sets, and possibly even take it.

Justine didn't return to the game just to lose before the SF in her second straight tourny. Justine will also be too motivated to let that #1 spot get away from her.

But Mary is playing very well right now and hitting the ball very hard.

I hope Justine wins

I hope Mary can keep up the good play & make it a good match. She is obviously playing well to have taken out such good players both in straight sets. It's nice to see that Mary still has some great tennis left.

It will be interesting to see how Justine handles what SHOULD be her first test. If Pierce plays her best I think she will win. If Justine gets on top early, watch out!

i hope really hope mary, but i think henin. anything could happen because i'm pretty sure past results go out the door just like they did with venus.

Really, can u tell me how she was moving serving. Was she coming to the net. How did she take out Venus. Unfortunately I couldn't see it:(

If Mary manages to get into the match, I don't see Henin winning it. First week of comeback, there is not way she is physically and mentally ready to face real resistance. And Mary must be playing really well, she didn't straighset Venus and Nadya for nothing.
