So far, Justine hasn't dropped a set at this stage... but her wins were not too impressive or convincing as expected.... particularly compared to others like Kim and Amelie...

1R df. Lukaszewicz 6-0 6-0
2R df. Pin 6-1 6-4
3R df. Kuznetsova 6-2 7-5
4R df. Santangelo 6-1 7-6(5)

Her current form reminds me of how Jenny has gone through in the first week to defend her AO title in 2002..... Jenny was the #1 seed at that time as well.... Like Justine, her form in the earlier stage of the tournament wasn't as impressive as expected.... Particularly in 3R & 4R she got pushed by Danillidou and Grande where she won 6-3/3-6/6-1 & 6-3/7-6(9) respectively..... I remember people were not expecting too much on her to be able to defend her AO crown... coz' on the other hand Martina, Monica and even Kim were performing better than her.....

But all of the sudden Jenny found her form to play against Amelie in the QF... beating her 6-2 6-2... and played well against Kim in the SF and found her way to win the unforgettable dramatic final against Martina.......

I don't think Justine will have such an easy QF against Lindsay though.... but I am confident that she will pull this one out.... and expect her to play well against Amelie in the SF and Kim in the Final (I've got a feeling that will be a very interesting and tough final between the two, and hopefully will be another dramatic final like Jenny vs. Martina - if its gonna happen)......
