Justine HENIN-HARDENNE (BEL) Leads Svetlana KUZNETSOVA (RUS) : 7 to 1 *


I reckon Justine in three sets although Svet does have the ability to beat Justine, but after readinf first round review of Svet match I think Justine is more likely to win!

I think Justine is going to win. But it will be hard. Last time they played Kuznetsova had 3 matchpoints but Justine won.

Today I was a bit sad, 'cause Ana was out,
but I'm also happy that Svetlana is getting better.

Still I think Justine will be stronger...

Sveta could have the edge in this match. She is stronger and is striking the ball harder than Justine.

Still, Justine does have that mental edge but she never has it easy against the Russian.

It's anyone's ballgame but I have the feeling Sveta will get through.

Sveta has had more match practice here at Sydney.

But Justine has a better Head-To-Head and looks like she knows how to play her.

Justine in two.

If Svetlana is able to get rid of her mental issues concerning Justine, and if she plays a clean match she will beat Justine, because she's better than her when she applies the aforementioned criteria. Go Svetlana :bounce:

Sveta is better than Justine? Your medication for dementia is not working. You might want to up the dosage. If that's not the case, your plebian sensibilities might be a deterence in your attempts to find logic.


Allez Justine.

You don't know anything about me so please stick to the tennis discussion instead of making personal insults which only show your inadequacy to conversate in a mature way. Whether you like it or not Svetlana has the capability to beat Justine but she somehow fears her as was obvious at FO and Warsaw 2005. Justine was lucky that Svetlana choked her leads away in those matches.
Remember Dubai 2004? Justine was in top form there but she was beaten by a young up and coming Svetlana.

Svetlana has the skills but she has to sort it out mentally and make less unforced errors if she does that she is better than Justine who mainly wins if Svetlana doesn't do those things. I know Justine is an elite player but she can be frustrated easily by Svetlana.

Oh, if you're going to respond to this post make it relevant okay.
Don't bother if you can only answer in a childish immature way though.

In the first 5 games of their Indian Wells match, Justine destroyed Svetlana. Svetlana wasn't even making too many errors or playing poorly, Justine simply outclassed her. If Justine played like that (and that wasn't even her best), Svetlana's game is no match for her.

And you must be talking about Doha, where Sveta did beat Justine. Of course when Sveta beats Justine, Sveta is an up and comer who beats the #1 player on her top form, but when discussing the converse, Sveta is too mentally fragile to beat Justine. It's never enough, is it?

Tennisaddict

Okay, let's agree to disagree then.

I don't think you understand what I'm saying.
Clearly, Justine is the better player right now as their H2H shows, but I've seen a lot
of their matches and saw that Svetlana can beat Justine if and only if she meets the criteria stated in my first post. So, Svetlana to me has more potential than Justine, but Justine does more with her potential.

One match doesn't define how players games match up btw. They have had many intense matches and you can be sure that Justine doesn't take Svetlana lightly. I'm looking forward to an intense three set battle with Svetlana coming out on top.

Justine often mentioned that svetlana is one of the opponents she fears the most, especially because of her forehand.

I be very happy if Sveta win, but all results instead 2:0 for JuJu will be big surprise for me.

Yep, I meant Doha indeed, and it's quite enough as you stated it
Can't be more correct :yeah:.
