Well Conchita definately can upset Justine since can never count out past champions, but for this to happen she has to have a very good day and Justine a very bad one

Conchita isn't a past champion here.

What the fuck ? What is this kind of draw for JHH ?! It couldn't be more difficult for JHH in the first round and we know JHH almost always struggles in the first rounds. This is a dangerous draw. In the QF stage Conchita would get killed by JJ, but now ... ?

Still, it could be worse. It could have been Kim that drew Conchita. Let's hope Kim gets a few very easy opponents the first few rounds.

Conchita. She has the game to beat Justine. She's been working on her game so much in the last month just in case something like this happened. She's moving well. Hitting well. This will fuck up a lot of people's Whirlpool Fantasy teams. Luckily not mines... :).

people say poor justine but what about poor conchita?!? Davenport in round 1 of the Australian Open and Justine round of Roland Garros. not fair for her.

the best thing about this is that i'm guaranteed of seeing one of patty's bogey players out by round one :bounce:

it's good as well when day 1 or 2 has a great match on centre court

I fear she won't lose.... Although I love Conchi (JHH is OK for me, too).

Patty vs. Conchi would have been interesting. :devil:

Justine has a hard time in early rounds against journeymen, and
people she never played before. She usually brings her "A" game
to former grand slam champions or other big names.

people she never played before. She usually brings her "A" game
to former grand slam champions or other big names.

JHH leads 7-0 against Conchita (five times a real blowout), but the last match was very difficult for Justine.

The fact that JHH had such a hard fight the last time they have met, is dangerous for Conchita, because Justine will know that she will have to be very concentrated to win against Conchita. Conchita risks to meet a strong JHH and then it is going to be difficult for Conchita, because there are not a lot of players who can win against JHH on clay if she plays her best tennis (look at what happened to Patty and Maria in Berlin).

2004 AMELIA ISLAND CLAY (O) R16 J. HENIN-HARDENNE 2-6 7-5 6-3

OMG, you're so correct.

I have made a mistake.

In that case, Conchita is screwed, because she always gets hammered by Justine. The last time Justine had a bit of a problem (before that virus-match) with Conchita was in 2001.

Conchita plays a bit like Patty and we know what happened to Patty in the two last matches. Conchita will try to unnerve JHH with her moon balls and other slower balls. I have seen in the past that this doesn't really work against Justine.

Conchita will try to play a lot of high moon balls into the backhand of JHH, but I am sure that JHH knows that this is going to happen, so she will constantly play to her forehand, thus making it impossible for Conchita to play such a kind of moon balls. And she will go to the net lots of time, so Conchita won't get the time to start playing her kind of game. Well, that's the same strategy as in the match against Patty.

IS THIS EVEN A QUESTION... justine will win even with no forehands... just backhands! :bounce:

again, even in her worst luck i just dont see justine being defeated by conchi... no offence to conchita... but that's the truth... justine had already trained hard and she really wants this...

there is no way justine will lose this match! :dance:

the appropriate poll question should have been:

how many games will justine lose to conchita?
choices: 0, 1, 2

If Conchita beats Justine I will be seriously stunned. And anyone who thinks Conchita can win are either very optimstic or hate Justine.

I've watched Conchita once against Justine at Filderstadt. Won about 5 points in the 1st set and was 5-2 down in the 2nd. Then Henin played poorly and started getting frustrated by Cocnhi's game. Tiebreak was exactly like the 1st set though.

Conchita has seriously pushed Justine on clay but I can't see her winning. I can see a 6-1 6-1 type scoreline though and I really don't want that.

Justine 6-1 7-5 IMO. :sad:

Justine knows what to do and she won't allow herself to be frustrated by those moonies.:rolleyes:

And, that meeting at Amelia Island was Justine's second tournament back and first on clay. That's why it was close. Won't happen again.

Still, bad first round for Conchita.:sad:

I hope the winner takes it all these are 2 great champions whose game is unique in current women tennis :worshop: only exceptions are in case of Justine being the winner and playing vs Paola, Myskina, Mauresmo or any other Spaniard (very likely :lol: :rolleyes: )

i don't mean really sick or anything. just a cold/flu or some gastric problems. anything to sap her energy and leave her feeling weak and drained. of course, a twisted ankle might make it easier for conchita, but i think that's going too far. i don't wish any harm for justine.

Are you serious? Serena lost in the 2R of Rome. And she said so herself that she wasn't injured and that she was feeling well. I doubt she would have factor in further than the QF (if she even managed to get there) had she played RG.

Honestly, sometimes I find it very hard to hold back from taking a swipe Justine and bring some people down a few pegs when I read posts like this.

Sadly there is an element of truth to what you've posted which is probably the reason why Justine gets her fair share of hate on this board without me adding to it.

Conchita's chances of winning this match are remote but nonetheless I will be supporting her :hearts:.

Before Kim played IW or Miami, there was a special thread how noone stands a chance against her. I guess you really posted in the thread to put all those posters down?
