One is desperate to catch a French Title, another is desperate to grab a Wimbledon.
Both of them have great footwork, and amazing single backhand.

They can learn something from each other?

Ok this is getting ridiculous. Roger said he likes SVETLANA, not Henin. And what could he learn from Henin? Sorry, but he already does everything much better than her, as do most man players.

Its obvious that both players don't need tennis lessons from each other, but perhaps Justine can give Federer some tips, some little trics which can help him in Paris. And Federer can give Henin some tipcs and trics too.

But on the other hand I'm sure that both players can win that last tournament without these tips and trics. They were both pretty close in the past.

Right, Roger got 1 semi and 2 finals at French Open, and Justine has got 3 semis and 2 finals in Wimbledon.

Who will win their last lacked title first?
I think it will be Roger.

They have both been twice to the final of the one Slam they have not won. So I don't think they need that many lessons... It's just a matter of being at their best at that one moment when it counts.

Excuse me? Henin could learn a lot from Federer. How to serve, how to hit a forehand, tactics, volleying, how not to choke in big matches. He does EVERYTHING better than her, she could learn a lot.

:help:

Henin has the best forehand and volleys on the WTA tour. Her backhand has become her weaker side.

Everyone can learn a lot from Federer. Henin, the Williams, etc, all could learn from the greatest tennis player of all time.

First of all, No and No. BEst forehand is still Serena when it's on and best volleys are Mauresmo with Venus close behind. Second, even if she did have the best of those on the WTA tour, Federer's would still be better and he could still teach her how to hit those. :wavey:

The same way you can teach a woman to run 100m in under 10 seconds?

There's a big differenc. Roger is acknowledged as the second best clay court player in the world. Where it not for Rafa, he would probably have at least two FO titles by now. Justine faces a whole slew of opponents who can beat her on grass, Venus, Serena, Maria and who knows how many others.

Besides when you already have 12 majors under your belt, their ain't much you need to learn from anybody.

Oh please, her technique is far from perfect. There is a lot she could learn from other women on the tour, forget about the best male player.

she could teach him to dropshot or hit topspin lobs. I have never seen Fed hit a true drop shot or topspin lob

I would be very surprised though, if Federer said he does not like Henin. The two number one’s possess the best backhands in the game. I would not be surprised if Federer learned from Henin 5 years ago.

:haha:Justine fans really need to stop the nonsense. Roger Federer doesn't need to learn anything from ANY WTA player.:tape:

They can't learn to win Wimbledon(Justine) and RG(Federer), they have to believe they can do it first, I hope it's going to be the case next year. :)

yes she is far from perfect, I guess that's why she beat the sisters back to back :eek: :devil:

So what's your point here? Don't the sisters need to learn from the others on tour?

That's ture :)

I guess your idol also could learn a lot from Federer. How to serve, how to hit a forehand, tactics, volleying, how not to choke in big matches. He does EVERYTHING better than her, she could learn a lot.

Btw, RF is better than everyone else who play tennis on this planet, why is it so necessary to just emphasize henin ? Because you are a pathetic hater and a sore loser am I right :tape:

This is a good point actually. In Roger's case, he has one huge hurdle in Nadal. And watching his matches on clay against Rafa, it appears winning RG is probably out of his control...he just can't seem to outlast him on clay in a 5 setter.

Justine's problems with Wimbledon seem to lie more in her control. She loses to a variety of players because she can't seem to keep herself composed enough to go all the way. She lost to Bartoli at Wimbledon, even though she had beaten her extremely handily in the prior grass tournament at Eastbourne. She could certainly beat Daniilidou on grass. Mauresmo in top form is a different story, but she may not even be a huge factor in a few years. Of course there's also Venus & Serena too, but their careers have been very inconsistent lately.

I think it's more likely that Justine will win Wimbledon than Federer winning RG, barring an injury to, or surprise upset of, Nadal.

Justine has been bullied off the court :eek: in almost all of her Wimbledon losses. Enough already w/the unfair(to Federer)comparisons, you people are getting way ahead of yourselves.:rolleyes:

She was no more bullied off the court than Federer was by Nadal in their last 2 meetings at RG.

Serena can already serve as fast as many top male players thanks. :wavey:
