impressive...should Serena start worrying?? :unsure: :scared:

The final tomorrow - Justine vs. Amelie will be very interesting. This match will really tells us how Amelie game is at the moment with Justine playing the best on the tour.

What happened to Nadia retiring at 4-6?

pwayne, not quite sure about nadia. she didn't look to be in any obvious pain. i guess she's just playing it ultra safe before next week.

Henin :rolleyes:

marion :hearts: i hope the best for you in Wimbly :bounce:

Jun 22nd, 2007, 06:43 PM
Marion beat Dementieva because Dementieva is still trying to find her form. It was just a very bad match by Elena and Marion took advantage of it. I think that Justine also played a great match today and she'll probably win the tournament.

Bartoli got what she deserved...
anyone noticed how awful the way she serves?

Jun 22nd, 2007, 08:18 PM
can't see why bartoli is effective, i mean, she can't move, she has no variation, she has very little technique

Jun 23rd, 2007, 12:33 AM
Bartoli is effective for sure when you let her dictate and give her rhythm. She really wallops the ball and can develop good angles. That is tough to deal with if you are someone like Dementieva who plays into Bartoli's strengths. Justine is another story. She did not often allow Bartoli to control the points or forced her to deal with tough defensive shots. Oftentimes, Justine turned defense into offense by hitting winners out of nowhere. Nothing you can do about that if you are not a great mover.

She's only effective against certain players. She has a good serve and strong (though unorthodox) groundstrokes, which help anyone on grass. Not having a good serve also hinders someone like LenaD on grass. But Marion's nowhere near Justine in any way.

Jun 23rd, 2007, 01:11 AM
well done justine, keep that 1st serve around 65% and u will make some big noise in Wimbly :)

Jun 23rd, 2007, 03:10 AM
yep JUJU is returning serves very well. sometimes going up the line, sometimes crosscourt and low at the foot, other times with a lot of slice. she is varying her serve a ton too. all of this bodes very well. love how many free points she gets with the body serve and the slice serves. also her serve n volley technique has improved a lot.

Good playing Justine......now beat Amelie on grass!!

Jun 23rd, 2007, 04:39 AM
Bartoli getting trashed by a top player. Who would've thought it?

Well she is not alone. The last time a top player (Serena) challenged Justine, it resulted in a 64 63 for her. Ana, Nicole, Jelena hasn't done better than Marion in their last matches.

The key to beating Bartoli on this surface is moving her around with good angles. This was Henin's strategy from the get go and Bartoli couldn't deal with it. Once Henin hit in the middle of the court she wasn't as superior. Bartoli will beat almost anyone on grass who doesn't make her run. When she can set up her groundies she is lethal.
