Pierce: "Justine's had some tough things in her life," Pierce said. "I'm pleased to see her in the final.

"Look at what Justine has been through, you know. She's awesome."

Justine: "I think she's in great shape right now. And mentally she's very strong because she loves to play here at the French Open. She won it a few years ago, so she has a great motivation to go to the final and then try to win this tournament. So it's going to be a tough mission for myself if it's Mary, because it's not quite sure yet."

Nice comments from both players, I respect them for that. It truly is a 'sign of greatness'. Congrats JHH and Mahree.

On another note..."EVERY 5 YEARS!", "EVERY 5 YEARS!" :wavey:

Yeah, that's nice to see. I'd rather see mutual sisterhood, but I'll settle for respect :).

yes i was going to post mary's comments about justine because

1) they were probably the nicest things i have heard anyone say about her (at least a well known player)

2) Mary's has been given flack for her antics on court but people seem to forget what a lovely person she is in the process.

Yeah but the pattern of every five years for Mary, this year she should win Wimbledon not Roland Garros :angel:

Except that Pierce has never made it even as far as the quarters at Wimbledon, and I doubt that she's going to go all the way for the first time at the age of 30, pattern or no pattern. :)

Mary's ill success at Wimbledon is a bit of a mystery. Grass would actually seem to suit her game.

That's what I was thinking. But, she hasn't been able to get past that dynasty called Williams. ;)

Yeh, I agree that thats the nicest thing I've heard another 'top' player say about Justine. I guess she rubs some ppl the wrong way:)

I think both of these players should write books, esp. Pierce:), they would be good stories to read. (from their perspective, not Mary C., Pam S., Jon Worthless Wertheim, or Bud 'death to the WS' Collins.)

Me either. I love her attitude. She's such a good person. I hope the ref or ump doesn't give her a hard time with her time tomorrow because of Pam. She has said she doesn't do it to annoy the opponent, but Miss Pam had to go tell the referee that she was violating the rules on time to serve. :rolleyes:

Well... pam is severely jealous of all players with a singles Grand Slam:)

I mean, come on, Martina N. could have won those doubles titles all by herself, or for sure with any player who can hit 1 of every 2 serves in....

They should have inducted martina n. into the hall of fame twice, once for herself & then again for pam's results
