I didn't see the match, but I'm glad JuJu won!!! I expected troubles: it's on her worst surface and she has troubles with Qualifiers.

Anyway ... There are some pics from the tournament in fleemkes▓'s post.

I'm not sure if I get it right but if you mean courts = surface than I can say that clay and grass are her best ones but Justine has already won tournaments on every surface so she's good at everything :cool:

If this isn't what you meant lol try to explain it than for me ;)

4 semi finals in a row...great job Justine!

Nemesis

Let's hope that it won't be 4 semi's in a row ... A final or a trophee would be nice too!!! But let's hope too much ...

Great win, JuJu!!! Jenny should get back to her camel to raise the moral of the USA troops in the Gulf-region!!! Although ... raise??? Wouldn't it drop? ;)

You can beat her, JuJu! :bounce:

She won!!!!!!!!!!!!! 7-5 4-6 6-4 :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Next up is Seles. It will be hard but if she keeps her first serve in and plays like she did today she can win. JCap was the favourite on hardcourt and Monica is too now on the same surface, but I believe JuJu can do this and can consolidate her 4th place ... if her 1st serve percentage is high enough.

Yay! :D

Her serve percentage wasn't good today right (less than 50%)? But I heard she had some good serves on crucial points in the third :)

hey all justine fans......sorrry to break the party but seles is gonna win for sure....i just hope it isnt a straight set match....coz realistically seles is the true #4 and u can bet justine will lose tomm, she has lost all 4 matches against monica on hardcourts...the seles returns and groundstrokes will be too much and i am sure she will be tired from today's marathon match against jeniffer....btw thanks jeniffer....for tiring out justine...and i think kim is so much better

Hmm...regardless of that negative remark from one member...WHO CARES!! We JUSTINE FANS are behind our STAR All The Way...She will try her utmost best to challenge any player on the other side of the court...
We don't need a non-Justine member to come in here to sour things up...unless you're a little scared of Justine winning it, that's why you come in!

JUSTINE, YOU GO & WIN IT! :bounce:

The trophee is hers!!! She defeated Monica Seles 4-6 7-6 (7-4) 7-5

A thrilling match with a lot of errors from both girls but in the end of the second set the quality was quite high.

Congrats JuJu. I'm so proud. You're the real number 4 of the world!!! :worship:
