Justine Henin is great! :) And she's a wonderfully talented tennis player! :D But she's won enough WTA titles this year. It's time for someone else to win. ;) And that someone else is Lina Krasnoroutskaya! :bounce:

After she beat Serena Williams amid much controversy at this years French Open, Justine said something about Serena has won enough and it was time for someone else to win. And that someone else Justine was referring to was herself. Well, I feel the same way about Toronto that Justine felt about the French Open. It's time for someone else to win. Udachi Lina! :bounce:

I highly doubt Lina K will win more than 5 games ;)

Well Tennisfan, Justine does own the Russians. :mad: And playing Henin for the first time will be hard for Lina to handle because Justine has so much talent and so many shots. Juju could overwhelm Lina :eek: But perhaps Justine will be thinking about the U.S. Open today and Lina will spring the huge upset! :D

Justine said Serena should let other players to win, but that other players should have everything she needs to take her opponent out ;)
So if Lina take her best game to grab the title, I think Justine wont make any statement to underestimating Lina :D

No one's ever "won enough". If Lina wants to win, then she needs to outplay Henin.

LMAO at the comments: "Justine needs to let Lina win her first big title!"

Justine destroyed Lina in the Quarterfinals of RG 2001 with the score line like 6-1, 6-2. They are both different players in 2003 and Justine is really playing like the #1 player in the world. And Yep, JuJu does own the Russians. :lick: I was checking Justine's results 2001-2003 and only Dementieva troubles her and she sent Anna K packing early twice at the Australian Open. Today should be a delightful match between two talented players;) gOOD LUCK LADIES! :angel:

Justine's 2003 record against the Russians is currently 12-1. And I don't think anyone should LET others win. It's more in the terms of Lina really bringing it to the table and making herself win.

Justine's all time record against the Russians stands at 27-2 losing to Myskina last year.

Juju is 27-2 against the Russians! :eek: But wait until "The Siberian Tigress" Maria Sharapova gets hold of her! ;)

Hingiswinsthis, I had forgotten that Justine whipped Lina at the 2001 French Open. :o And I hope Lina has forgotten about that match, too. ;)

Maria was supposed to meet Justine in the QF of this year's Wimbledon but fell to Svetlana Kuznetsova after winning the first set. Kuznetsova was then blasted off the court by Justine.

shap, I know Maria let that opportunity slip through her fingers. That was a tough loss. By the way, Maria won the second set against Svetlana. ;)

Justine never said Serena should let people win.

You were right, Tennisfan. Lina didn't even win 5 games. All Justine gave her was 1 game. :eek:
