nope there's nothing in about it :)
I don't see Justine saying that btw ;)

This is well an interesting part :)

Q. Are you going to draw from your experience in Charleston in order to prepare for that match, or are you going to turn the page?
JUSTINE HENIN-HARDENNE: As I said several times, against players I have played recently, I think we have to see things differently, according to the tournament where we are.
Thursday will be another day. I know what all the strengths and weaknesses of Serena are. I'm not going to talk about them now, but I'm quite aware of them. Serena will tell you she played very badly in Charleston; this is what she thinks. I have nothing else to add.
I played a very good match, nothing extraordinary either, but it was a good match. We'll see what happens on the court. I'll try to play the best that I can, and we'll see how it turns out.

When she is beaten by Serena on Thursday then she will realize that
Serena did not play good for real at Charleston.
Just Let her ask Mauresmo today.

Pffff, do you have something against Belgium? Because everywhere someone's cheering for the Belgians you're there commenting that they'll lose :rolleyes:
Maybe you think there's some sort of competition between Belgium and The Netherlands? I don't know, because I have no problems cheering for Dutch players, but I think you're afraid that Belgium will be too good in comparison to The Netherlands...

Imo the match where they both played their heart out was in the german open last year where it went to a third set tie break. anyone could have won that match and it happened to be justine. the rome final justine wasnt at her best and in charleston serena wasnt at her best. It just goes to show that on clay when they are both playing well anyone of them can be the winner.

GO SERENA!

Justine's contention - which I agree with - is that how she played in Charleston led to Serena making errors. Serena just thinks/says she played bad. That is why Justine says, "this is what she thinks."

In Charleston it was strange. Serena was still controlling the match, but she was making so many errors all justine had to do was hit the ball back.

Thursday we will see who is correct. Justine is always talking shit, but she is right about something else Thursday will be when all the back and forth talking will end. :rolleyes:

I agree, actually. And the German Open final...at 5-5 in the tiebreak, Justine ad to hit the best winner of her life to win, which goes to show how hard it is for the best clay-courter to beat the best overall player and vice versa.

i'm sorry but the match of thursday has nothing to do with who is right and who is wrong...
if serena plays like today, and she wins, i'll be the first to admit she was better of juju, but what happened in charleston has NOTHING to do with that match of thursday. serena made errors, justine not. like others already have said: it's also a sign of a top player to be able to take advantage of the errors of your opponent.
