I hope it will be Justine in 2. it's time to win it easy, no more 3 setters, please!! Win in 2!!
But still hope Justine will win even if in 3!!

I just don't know in what form Jenny will be, she hasn't played normally since US Open semi ;)

I believe this match will be attended very well

Yeah, it's very tough for Justine because all their match always went to 3. I think Jennifer will put a fight in this match, and so does Justine. If Justine can handle her own serve and can get high percentation of her first serve, i think she can handle jennifer. Of course we hope Justine doesn't choke. She must able to handle the pressure from the American crowd because Jenn is very popular there. Just do it, Justine!!! Remember the US Open SF, how u handle the pressure and took the trophy!!!
I pick Justine in 2.

I'll have to give Justine the win in 3 sets because
she's such a different player now. If the crowd
get's behind Jenn; Justine will just play harder.
There's also the mental factor- the US OPEN
really seemed to have affected Jenn's tennis.

I think Justine. (duh ;) ). Maybe even in 2 sets (I don't want to jinx her :unsure: ). She will be só ready to play this match!! So will Cappy, but a well-rested, inspired Justine is 10x better then Jen, I think :)

Justine: 6-5 7-5

Well I hope she learned from the Semi in New York and finishes it in 2, but I won't be surprised if it goes in 3.

Interesting point: Jen was defeated easy in Moskou and ..euhm ... filderstadt? against Pierce ....

No, it Moscow it was a 3 setter with Bovina, but yeah she lost (but had a match point).
But in Filderstadt she was defeated by Pierce in 2 sets!! 6-4 6-3 I guess

you adjust your level towards your opponent :o
Justine and Jenjen have two styles that result in marvellous tennis!
I 'm afraid it will be a three-setter again (but I picked Justine in two :d)

I hope you win Justine, I hope you win :worship:

Nothing special here... we all know that indoor is Jennifer's worst surface. She lost to alex stevenson last year, and to pierce and bovina this year. I think we will see the real match when Justine play against Rubin or Clijsters. We even watched the first thriller from Anastasia Myskina, I think the feeling is as same as when you watch thriller movie :lol:
BTW i watched Swimfan 2 days ago, Jesse Bradford is very very Cute. Swimfan is a great thriller movie :)
Good Luck Justine, Please win this Tournament!!!!!!
