Do respect the new USopen champ!!! I know that Venus and Serena were great favo's for the title and they are (some) of the best players on the tour but the girl who wins the title did beat all the other players and deserves the title. (Are Steffi's wins less worth because of the absence of Monica? don't think so). It's really sad that those 2 won't play because, if you like it or not, they bring some great tennis on tour :)

At this point I don't care if it is Justine (I do hope ;)), Kim, Linds, Cap, ... or a new slamwinner. They can't help it that Serena and Venus pulled out and did bring the best tennis those two weeks! :)

Thx already :)

I will respect the new winner. Because if my favorite, Venus had won, without Serena in the draw, people would have said she won only because Serena was not in the draw and I would be offended. Unfortunately, injuries are about of sports. I believe that winninng a championship is based on skills, and some luck

i think either clijsters or henin-hardenne will win but it would be so nice if we had a surprise winner. :)

thanks for the thread, fleemke²! :)

Thanks you fleemke! Well said! I hope Justine wins, whoever does will deserve it cos they will have beaten everyone who stood in their way.

I absolutely agree. There should not be any asteriks by the name of the winner. That is ridiculous. Vee and Ree are wonderful, but the sport does not fall apart if they are not playing.

Personally, I am rooting for Jennifer. I really think she has a shot here.

I agree 100%!!! In reality, perfect field at a Slam is almost impossible, as there will always be some top player missing, playing injured or whatever. The one who wins it deserves it the most. It's not her fault the other players didn't play or weren't at their best.

Hey fleem - you must really believe Justine is going to win this :eek:! j/k! ;)


Very good post. I'm all for respect. :)
That's why I would plead to keep the following kind of posts to a bare minimum:

Well ... imo ;)
she's not the best player
she didn' play a good final (it was boring!)
she didn't beat tha absolute top past months ...
she didn't won the big matches

but congrats I think :)
Or rather: if you feel the urge to post something like that, just don't post anything - you're only damping the happiness of others for no reason at all. Imo! ;) ;) ;)




This thread might have carried a lot more weight if it had come from somebody else. ;) j/k!
