Good God! It is quite irritating to here people making comments about how, if Serena plays the same kind of tennis she did against Amelie that Justine is the automatic loser. Let's get on with the program, people, Justine and Amelie are not the same people nor are they the same players. Amelie was fighting some kind of demons there other than Serena (metaphorically, I'm not saying Serena is a demon so back the fuck off)! Justine might just have the answer to Serena's power play from yesterday!

I don't think Serena played that great against Momo. She will have to play better to beat Justine.

Now you know how it feels to have Venus and Serena spoken about like they are one and the same.

Well that's wonderful, for your sake, I hope you don't have a history of heart problems in your family because I would hate for you to suddenly go into panic mode when Justine bitch slaps Serena. :)

SerenaJWilliams, you are so right I did not sleep at all the night before because I also considered MoMo much more dangerous. But you know you can never be to relaxed. If Serena goes out on the court pissed like she was yesterday who the hell knows what will happen.

I don't care because I've never made comments bundling Serena and Venus together. And I don't think anyone really feels that if one beats the other the other falls as well, which is what most people are saying about the semi final against Justine.

Well that hasn't happened to date, so why would anyone concern themselves w/that at this point?

If Serena plays w/in herself, Justine will lose. Serena at or near her best will beat any other player still in the draw at thier best.

I think people compare them b/c they are same style of play. But I agree...Serena played well, but she dropped her level at the end of the match. She does need to be on her game tomorrow.

I, too, thought Mauresmo was a tougher opponent than Justine. But we'll see tomorrow. I'm pretty confident that Serena will pull through. The question is will it be a cakewalk or tight sets... time will tell! T- 18 hours and counting...

I don't know who "most" is. Justine will have to play her match of the year to beat Serena tomorrow, and no her level at Charleston probably won't be good enough.

totally i woke up at about 8 my time hoping the match was over

it didnt actually hit me that play didnt actually start till 12 and she was the second match on

Mauresmo messed up my mind for real

never be too relaxed??? sure. i want this more than anybody. im not content with 5 i want each and every slam. but i cant keep doubting my girl.

and she never loses when i get the chance to see her. so it makes good reading.

of course, this match COULD go either way. but my mental attitude is positive and im totally optimistic (not arrogant) about the outcome of this match :)

I personally thought that with all the pressure the French people have placed upon Amelie that she will quickly fold. Justine is not the same. I have no doubt that Justine will bring it tomorrow against Serena. It's a shame that because Serena defeated Amelie so convincingly that Justine is the the automatic loser of tomorrow's match should Serena perform similarly. Justine's game and Amelie's game though are similar with the onehanded backhand, Justine's serve is more efficient and her net game is more complete and her forehand has become her better shot. To me, Serena would have to be at her best to defeat Justine (with the confidence she holds) at her best.

I don't think people are predicting Justine to lose based on Serena's match against Momo, they're basing that on the "fact" that Serena is the best player on the tour, and very hard to beat when she's even close to the zone.

Justine was troubled by Patty. Patty is no Serena J. Williams.

i personally think....

actually i no longer care what i think i just want Serena to be there on saturday with the winners trophy and i have the confidence and belief that she will do it

she might go out tomorrow and lose 0 and 0 but like OMG im not gonna go out and doubt her ability :rolleyes:

Indeed, Momo and Juju are not the same person. I say this with some certitude as I've seen pictures of Amelie topless.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Anyone who honestly saw Mauresmo as a "much bigger" threat to Serena than Justine at RG must have been totally unaware of Amelie's history there. And I'm a fan (you think YOU had trouble sleeping? Welcome to my week ;) ).

Right now I'm just hoping Serena and Juju give us a great match.

.

hey!!!! im a fan of Mauresmo too.....very much so! i predicted her AGES ago to be the one to beat the W/S more than any other...but you know, its so much easier going into the match being a fan of the underdog, than the fan of the favourite :) its easier (imo) on ur heart to think "yes! she has a chance!" than "shit! she might lose this!"

anyways...like i said im not arrogant. hell, if she beats Justine and faces Nadya in the final....i would be more scared of Nadia.

Yes, but the joy of being a Momosapian is that you get to feel both.

This is so funny. Everyone is underestimating Justine. Funny how Justine beat Mauresmo on clay a few weeks ago. Also Henin beat Serena easily, Mauresmo had to struggle to beat Serena. Henin is faster and doesn't have such wild shots.

At the very least you know Justine will keep the ball in play. Amelie was hitting every serve and return into the net or meters long. If you expect Henin, who is more competitive and mentally stable, to fold to Serena, you can dream on.

Allez Justine! 7-5 6-3.
