View Full Version : Berlin Battle: Henin-Hardenne or Kuznetsova

May 11th, 2006, 06:43 PM
Henin-Hardenne leads 9-1 but they have had tough matches on clay.

Who will win tomorrow?

May 11th, 2006, 06:44 PM
Allez Sveta!

May 11th, 2006, 06:44 PM
I've gotta go with Henin-Hardenne in two sets cause she plays very well at the moment, and I think she won't underestimate Kuznetsova like she didn't underestimate Kirilenko today.

May 11th, 2006, 06:53 PM
Third match up this season already. Allez Justine!

May 11th, 2006, 06:55 PM
Allez Justine!:bounce:

May 11th, 2006, 08:33 PM

May 11th, 2006, 08:34 PM
Come on Kuznetsova

May 11th, 2006, 08:35 PM
Kuznetsova in straight sets.

May 11th, 2006, 08:40 PM

No Name Face

You guys are never going to believe this, but I actually want Justine to win! :scared:

I think Justine will pull out the win. She's so deadly on clay.

Justine v Amelie and Justine v Martina are both :drool: matches.

I never thought I'd say it, but "Allez Justine!" :o

Kuznetsova is always a threat to Justine even with such lopsided H2H in Justine's favor. But Justine knows that, so I think she'll be ready, and counting on that, I have to go with her. She's a better player than Kuznetsova and knows just the right plan to win. Their encounters this year have been straight sets wins, but I'll vote for Justine in 3 since A) Kuznetsova is, perhaps, more solid now, B) Kuznetsova probably gave Justine the two toughest battles she had to dig a win on last year's clay season (Warsaw F and RG R16).

And I really want to see either Justine vs Amélie or Justine vs Martina :drool:

Allez Justine!

svetlana wins 6-4, 6-4

May 11th, 2006, 09:42 PM
Svetlana is a great clay court player but just seems to lack concentration especially against Kim - She was just going for ridiculous winners & until she tones it down and goes for percentage tennis she will continue to have trouble with the Belgians.

Justine in 2 - 7-6 6-1

May 11th, 2006, 09:54 PM
Sveta will win 76 36 64

May 11th, 2006, 09:55 PM
Kuznetsova in 3

May 11th, 2006, 10:07 PM
justine will find a way :)

May 11th, 2006, 10:12 PM
Watch out. It's close to Mother's Day. She's in Berlin.

I say Justine something like 7-6, 6-2.

May 11th, 2006, 10:13 PM
Really a good question. Can't answer it! Both played so well today! Kuznetsova's power and aggressiveness in her shots are amazing! A tournament speaker announced "Mauresmo-Hingis" as match of the day, but I disagree, it will be Henin-Hardenne vs. Kuznetsova!

May 11th, 2006, 10:22 PM
Sveta in 3? I will be pleased for whoever can fight there way to a win, this could be very tough!!

May 11th, 2006, 10:26 PM
Their matches are always tight. But I think Justine will win, but Svetlana will lead until the end of set two but not manage to take the tie.

May 11th, 2006, 10:34 PM
Justine in 2, unless there's wind in which case she'll win it in 3 after Svetlana chokes from a winning position.

May 12th, 2006, 01:47 AM
Wow... so many of you are going for a 2 sets Justine win...

I think it will be a 3 set Justine to win... Svetlana is not one to look down upon, given her recent victories on clay...

May 12th, 2006, 02:14 AM
Sveta 6-4 3-6 7-5

May 12th, 2006, 02:15 AM
Henin in 3

May 12th, 2006, 02:49 AM
Henin-Hardenne 6-4, 6-2

May 12th, 2006, 02:50 AM
Henin - 6-4, 6-3

May 12th, 2006, 03:05 AM

don't care in 2 or 3, as long as she wins :p

Fell the love baby!!!

no comment for me....everytime i predict for Justine to win, she ends up losing the next day...

I am sort of a jinx....so ...

Based on the way they played today, Kuznetsova should definately have her work cut out for her. Justine was INCREDIBLE against Kirlilenko. Justine should win this one, but then again, Kuznetsova is incredibly athletic and much stronger than Justine. Whomever holds thier nerve better will win, and I think it will be Justine. If this match was on grass, it would be a different subject. Justine in 2

May 12th, 2006, 07:37 AM
JuJu 6-2,5-7,6-1

May 12th, 2006, 08:55 AM
i hope svetlana wins..

May 12th, 2006, 09:21 AM
i think if its going to 3 sets..il go with sveta

May 12th, 2006, 09:41 AM
if kim can win in 2 on clay, justine will too.

May 12th, 2006, 09:44 AM
Justine in 2. Sveta just isn't the same player she was at Miami.

May 12th, 2006, 09:48 AM
Henin Hardenne will win.

May 12th, 2006, 09:58 AM
Sorry Sveta but I have to go for Justine on this match.

May 12th, 2006, 09:59 AM

May 12th, 2006, 10:36 AM

May 12th, 2006, 02:38 PM
I'll go with Henin-Hardenne in three. I really have no idea who will win this match though.

May 12th, 2006, 07:06 PM
Justine in two, 6-4, 7-6.
