lol...just reading through Justine Henin's profile ( as I have about 30-50 times before) and I see this :2001 - Roland Garros (w/Tatarkova); as a semi-final

Now I've seen this before in her profile but never had this board to ask this before, I'm just wondering who she beat to get there? and was it just a fluke or were they a really good team together? I found it very surprising considering she hasn't done much in doubles lately, she's won a couple tournaments but she doesn't do it very foten, and her results there aren't always spectacular, so just wanting nay info anyone has =D

But it kinda was a fluke though.
I believe they saved setpoints against Fusai and Grande, and matchpoints against Po-Messerli and Tauziat.
Still, great job Justine and Elena!
