7-5,5-7,9-7!

What will the score be this year and who will win?

Justine better fix her serve in a hurry, but I'm taking Justine in straights 7-5,6-4 but hey, what do I know? :shrug:

I just hope it's a good match! :)

This should be a great match, but Justine needs to pick up her game if she's going to win.

My pick: Davenport over Henin-Hardenne 7-6 7-6

That was a terrific match. Justine showed pure guts to pull that one out.

I believe that was THE match that catapulted Justine to win the Franch and US Open crowns and to #1. She gained renewed confidence to pull out those tight matches (e.g. Serena at French, Jen at US) she was more often than not losing previously to top players.

I hope Lindsay turns the tide this time around though. :angel:

I predict Lindsay in 3...Lindsay is looking great, Justine's serve is way out of sorts..

Lindsay 7/6 7/5, or something along those lines

I like you, your so realistic!!!!!! Some fans have a hard time to even say it.

Well, Justine wont lose without a fight for sure. She is already a slam winner!!!!!

I just hope Lindsay play well to her best and that is enough for me.

I think at this point everything is up in the air. Lindsay is playing solid and had no problems with a more difficult R16 opponent in Zvonareva. Justine, eventhough is able to pull out of these tight second sets, is not at all playing well or in the level of play the number 1 player should be playing like.

Either player can win.

No, I still say the match that REALLY gave Justine the belief she could win big matches was the the Charleston final against Serena! Justine's results between post-Australian Open 4th round 2003 and Miami 2003 was not something to write home about. Only then after that Charleston Final Justine emerged as a real threat to win majors.

With that said, we all know Davenport is playing well again- that's a given. The question is, how many errors will Justine whip out from her raquet again. So far, she's hitting so many errors reminsicent of her performance against Serena at Wimbledon last year.

We'll see what Justine can work on in two days....

Lindsay was the most impressive out of Mauresmo, Henin-Hardenne and herself today - considering she was the one who was playing a seed that was ranked closest to her, made it even more impressive.

Honestly, if Lindsay can hold that same intensity that she did today she has a very good chance at beating Justine on Tuesday (most likely the Tuesday night match).

Watching the previous matches:Lindsay will win.BUt we all know that Justine can raise her llevel of game when she needs it.And we all know when she's down,she plays amazingly well.When she's down a BP,SP or even a MP she's capable of coming up with the greatest shots.I still bet my money on Justine,but she has to be there from the very beginning.If the match goes to three,I think that Superfit-Justine will win it.But if she loses the first set,Lindsay can win it in two.But I still believe that Justine will raise her game and will beat Lindsay and even the tournament.

All the Zhoo-steen crew are like that. We say things like it is, at
times with tongue firmly in cheek; but we won't polish up bad
matches. :yeah:

I'm afraid Lindsay will win, but on the other hand..you never know with Justine. She never gives up, and she always seems to find a way to get back in a match.

GO JUSTINE!!!!!!!!

I was a nervous wreck during RG in her match against Serena.
A live wire of nerves in her match with Jenn. And now Lindsay
has me wanting to take up smoking and I don't even smoke!! :lol:

I used to smoke and that helped me through these nervewrecking tennis matches. But now I have stopped and I feel sick when I smoke. I remember buying sigarettes and smoking during that RG semi between Justine and Serena but after the match I was really sick!
So all that is left is banging my head against the wall during these matches!

Justine will win. Lindsay plays well when she serves well and when her opponents can't return the ball or make lots of UE's...BUT Lindsay's mobility will hurt her BIG time against Justine. If Justine can move her around just a bit...Lindsay will loose.

lol i too am very vocal during these matches.. I still have to say Lindsay in this one, she's playing great, she's in great shape, she destroyed the 10th seed Vera, she had no problem against her at all! Justine completely fell apart in that second set, if th at girl had had more experience, she would have closed out that set with two breaks. It's pretty up in the air, Lindsays drive skill and experience vs Henin's Determination. Should be a good one, they better show it on tv..

:)I remember watching the 01 wimby semi with a couple of friends and I kept yelling at the TV: "She's rippin it up! she's rippin it up!"....I have fewer friends now :o

and at last year's wimby semi, I'd start switching the channel to some soap if Justine was having trouble in a game (nothing else was on :shrug: ), by the end of it I knew why Lucas was mad at Sammy but I wasn't quite sure why Justine lost :lol:

This is a great thread!!! No one is arrogant and saying that their fave will blast and destroyed the other. No one says like " If blabla bla plays blablabla theres nothing she can do..etccc" Those quotes like their fave already have the trophy.

I just really hope Lindsay plays very positive and give her best!!!!

Difficult question... Justine has to raise her level immediately... I think she's really feeling the pressure, I hope she finds a solution before tuesday...
