I hope it will be the easiest win for Justine, & it should be ;)
Ai is in a great form, but she is tired, she perfomed so well for the last 2 weeks in both, singles & doubles!! And she's playing doubles here as well, but if it's the first Justine match it won't matter, of course!!

And ns_Henin you did such a great job with these 3 topics, they're great!!! I like the idea & design!! :bigclap:

Sugiyama has a very great indoor season, she took Linz title and landed Semi Finalist at Advanta Championships. I think her game improved a lot, so Justine must be very carefull. Sugiyama was able to push Mauresmo to 3 tough sets, so this wont be easy for Justine. But with the tiredness of Sugiyama, i think Justine must be able to handle her.
I pick Justine in 2.

Ai's great; but I think Justine does everything a
wee bit better in every department. Sprinting side
to side, the aces, the serving, the returns, the
forehand, the one-handed backhand, the slice, the
volley, the overhead. I also think that Ai might be
a bit more nervous than Justine- it's such a fantastic
thing to be in the YEC for her. Off course, the main
reason Justine will win is that I do believe Ai may
have run out of gas. She looked kind of tired in Philly.

Justine has to play agrassive and if she does it Ai's defensive game won't be enough ;)
