Oh, what a draw for Justine! Anna Kournikova in the FIRST ROUND? :eek:

Yes, Justine IS a better player than Anna, but Anna so often can manage one good match per tournament -- and that's all she'd need to knock Justine OUT! And Justine's confidence may be shot after losing to Kim in straight sets. :o

Will those who know the most about Justine Please, say something Reassuring here??? I am desperate for reassurance! :confused:

wow, henin/kournikova in first round. Very tough for each of them. Didn't Justine beat Anna in US open of 2000(?) for her first big win? should be a fun match to watch!

The WHOLE CROWD will be against our Justine! You know how the Aussies always are about ANNA. I don't know if I can stand to watch it!:eek: :eek:

KIM'S Situation is better, and I can picture her in her 2nd GS final in a year! :D

I hadn't thought about the crowd before. You're right, the crowd is usually behind Anna.

But GOOOO JUSTINE! I believe in you, I'm convinced you can pull off an easy win.

And GOOO KIM!!

It is true a lot of Aussie blokes like Anna, but you have to remember that tennis crowds in Australia tend to also have a high proportion of people who are quite educated about the game and will know the rising stars, so I think a lot of people will be cheering for Justine too.

In any event, go Kim and go Justine! It's just a pity you have to meet each other before the final.

In their match at the USOpen the crowd was behind Justine so who knows, they might actually prefer her over Anna. ;)

Allez Justine! :bounce: :bounce:

Go Kim! :bounce: :bounce:

I think it also helps that they are first up! At 11am, the crowd will be less rowdy altogether than later on. The closer this match gets, the more confident I feel about Justine winning it. :angel:

Nice for Kim to snag the marquee night match position!

ALLEZ JUSTINE!!! GO KIM!!!

Tonight's the night! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Thank you Justine. As usual, it was a pleasure watching you.
I am still under the spell of those wonderful backhand lobs. A marvel to watch ! :D

And thank you ARD, for showing the match live !

Too bad for Olivier though...

Congrats to all. Good match, Olivier but too bad...

Btw who likes Kim's outfit? I don't like that shirt at all :(

The Crow

Something red with a bit white in it. Dunno if she was wearing this in Sydney too, but I don't like it :(

Kim and Ai go through in doubles

Callens- Pratt too..but I don't see them get far in the tourni..

Kim's been wearing quite a few different shirts this year.

I don't really like the one she was wearing yesterday either. I just don't like the Nike outfits anymore since last year already. They always come up with the worst.
Though Kim looked very good in the red shirt she was wearing in her first match at the hopman cup.

Does any1 know why Justine & Meghann withdrew from doubles?

auntie janie
Jan 16th, 2002, 10:55 PM
It was because of Meghann, people are saying - she hurt her back in the Alexandra match -- don't know how bad it was, but I hope she can continue in singles.

Nice to see our JUSTINE merits Rod Laver Arena tonight! The tournament organizers have SEEN THE LIGHT!! :D :D :D

Good luck over Marta Marrero, Justine! :cool:

Congrats Justine (let's remember the third set and forget about the rest I would say) and Kim! :bounce:

Too bad about Christophe! He had at least one set-point in the second set in the tiebreak and missed a lot of chances to break. They only show the third set on ARD. Both players were not playing well, making a lot of errors. Christophe didn't seem to have any inspiration.

The Crow
Jan 17th, 2002, 10:36 AM
It was lost after the second set, Sofie. Christophe had at least 1 setpoint at 6-5 and had 4 in the tiebreak (leading 6-2) :(

Kim only lost 5 games so far :eek, very impressive.

It seems like Justine is still struggling with her serve and her consistency. I hope she finds it back for her next matches.

Allez Justine! :bounce::bounce:

Go Kim! :bounce::bounce:

VERY important match tonight for Justine, facing a fired-up, big-hitting Elena D. who is undoubtedly eager to show that she belongs in tennis' elite. I can't wait to see how Justine and Elena handle each others' games.

ALLEZ JUSTINE! Show Elena why YOU are the one in the top 10! :D
