Justine will play just after the diubles match that Elke en Kirsten are now playing. It's in the middle of the third set so it won't be long.

And JuJu's opponent will be Zuzana Ondraskova. Who? ;)

JuJu has won, but with some difficulty: 6-4 7-6 (7-2)

Zuzana played great but JuJu was better at critical points. JuJu needs to practise her serve!!!

Today Ai will be the next victim :devil:

Go Justine smash her out of the tournament :worship: ;)

JuJu has won from Ai with beautiful tennis!!! Play this and still a little bit better against Kim (or the same against Patty) and you can reach the final again.

In any way. the next match will be a special one. Or the compatriot Kim or the same opponent from last year (who was FURIOUS after the match).

:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: Go JuJu!!! :wavey: :wavey: :wavey:

Just on the news: Kim is ill!!!! But she will play.

Benefit from it JuJu and you will shout victory in front of your public. And keep focused. Kim won't exaggerate. She's too nice for that.

Damn!!! Again Kim who wins. I begin to dislike her more and more. Telling she's ill while there was NO SIGN of it. She shouldn't tell it if it isn't that bad. Was it a tactic? I hope not ...

But anyway: Kim was better (again :mad: ) but JuJu gave a lot of opposition in the second set. And Kim was hitting way too hard. That's why I don't quite like watching her play. It's kinda boring.

I hope Vee wins the tournament. My second fav deserves that racquet now.

And the gravel season is on it's way JuJu. I hope and am sure you'll get plenty of chances to beat Kim on that surface. The hardcourt and indoor season lasts way too long. It's not fair.

BTW - lovely pic.

PS - Kim didn't sleep long on Valentine's night. What would've been the reason? ;) Maybe that is why she was on fire today. Damn Hewitt!!!

Nemesis, that is such a rude post! You dislike Kim for being ill last night? :confused: I'm sure she wouldn't have said that if she hadn't been sick!


And Kim was hitting way too hard. That's why I don't quite like watching her play. It's kinda boring.

I hope Vee wins the tournament. My second fav deserves that racquet now.

Hitting very hard is boring? And you're a fan of Venus? That doesn't make sense really...


Anyways, She had a good week :)

Oh and good luck in Dubai :D

I dislike her for beating Justine again. I just hope she didn't use that illness as a tactic. This is different from what you read.

And Vee hits hard too, but she has a more all-round game than Kim. Kim is almost pure baseline (except for that dropshot at matchpoint). Plus Vee is more interesting and has more style.

And I think the press exaggerated the illness a bit. That is why I am angry. But Kim shouldn't have told the press in any way. She knows JuJu has troubles playing ill or injured players. Kim knows they make an elephant out of a mouse. Look at that moving-to-Australia-story.

But yeah ... She won. She was great. And JuJu was too (in the end).

I'm sorry, Nemesis, but Justine often losing to Kim is not really a reason to dislike Kim. Venus has always beaten Justine since Wimbledon and you still like her.

I agree with one thing: Kim was great, and so was Justine at the end. Too bad for her she only started playing better when she was down 2-6 2-5...

I don't understand why Justine has the nerves on playing kim.
I saw her playing and I must say her game is much more beautifuller then kim's and I think she plays better then kim (certainly when you compare bolt A games, I think justine has the advantage not like Sabine appelmans said in the newspaper)
but it's only the mental problem that is in the way.
Because Kim is mental stronger she is more patient.

Too bad justine, you had some great chances and you did your best, next time you'll be the one to win ...

I guess Lynx was right, you're one of those irrational Justine fans. My #1 fave is also Justine, but that doesn't mean I will think in such strange ways. Also all the Justine forums get filled with such crap :confused:
A tactic? Come on! Venus more all-round???? LMFAO! Venus has more style, is more interesting, boohoo. Every excuse is good enough to hate Kim I guess. venus also defeats Justine almost every time, why don't you hate that?
It isn't Kim's fault Justine has problems playing ill players. She's the number 4 in the world, for God's sake!

It is really sad how many JuJu fans behave in this way, but it's your own choice to be pathetic I guess.:rolleyes:

Justine didn't play well at all..again. Her serve sucked...during both sets. I don't understand why she can't bring her A game against Kim. Kim was not playing at her best, and I don't see her winning even a set against Venus.

Kim was ill and didn't eat anything :eek: but played 2 matches on a day ... I'm sorry but that's very strange! I don't hate Kim but I can't help it to see this as a way to put even more presuure on Justine ... and she was again to nervous :sad:

Good luck in Dubay Justine!:worship:

I hate Kim Clijsters, i'll never cheer 4 her again, her smile is really really hurt us (at least me and Justine). I dont like her face :rolleyes:

Kim using the illness as a tactic? I don't think so, but even if she is, well it's Justine's fault if she gets stressed by this (not that I think she did, she just didn't have her day saturday, same as againt Ondraskova, but Kim is something else of course).

Anyway, I agree with Nemesis though about Venus having a more beautiful game than Kim though (mind you this is just my opinion). I hate it when our commentators "hail" Kim or Justine when they pley a great volley and "put down" one of the Williamses (or Davenport for that matter) when they miss one :mad:

Okay that last bit was off-topic I guess ;)

what I really hated was the way they named Kim 'belgian's tennisproud'...seems like Justine isn't important :(
