In one word: Unbelievable. She was making Henin run from corner to corner the way Lindsay did back in the old days!

"I saw Pierce Brosnan.. (and) to see him I (wanted) to play better.." - Marion Bartoli after beating Henin.

:eek: UN - FUCKING- BELIEVABLE. I am still shocked. :eek:

Uhhhh ...... :eek:

It is obvious now that if Serena did not have the thumb injury and the calf injury she would have certainly wiped the floor with that bitch Henin.

Not surprising.
This was by far, Justine's most stupid match ever played.

I don't even know if I can be a fan of her's anymore.


God, Carlos better give her the wallop of her life.

Credit to Marion, she did everything right.
Justine did everything wrong.

This was by far, Justine's most stupid match ever played.

Credit to Marion, she did everything right.
Justine did everything wrong.

Don't choke on those sour grapes , she was outplayed, end of.

Amazing tournament and win for Marion :yeah: It shows she had not just luck with drawing a Krajicek in QF or so. She is just playing amazing and she really deserves her succes.She beat Henin & Jankovic. She seems like a very nice person and it is cute how happy she is now :yeah: :worship:

I will cheer for Venus (Thats sure) and I'm sure Venus will win, but reaching Wimbledon-final after having such a bad start in this year is so fanatstic for her. Congrats a lot Marion and keep going, you are doing a great job! Maybe we will see a match like Venus-Monica Seles in former times :lol:

And the funny thing is that I saw many similar things when my fav girl Jelena lost against Marion.

I feel so sorry for Justine.:sad::hug:

But on the other side I must say...
BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO to Marion Bartoli.:worship::worship::worship:

You are playing the tournament of your life girl. And this was an awesome performance today. I never saw her play better than against Justine.

Venus should take this a serious warning in terms of the upcoming final.:eek: Because I expect a tough battle now.

It's the biggest shock since... I don't know how long :lol:

I've never laughed as much as I did during the third set. It was just crazy tennis from Bartoli, she killed Justine, dismantled her. BRAVO, Marion!
But really, it should never have happened. Henin just gifted her the second set. What a humiliating loss for Justine, her worst since Kapros at RG-2002.

NO one could afford to overlook Marion at this tournament...but unfortunately for them, they didn't know that. What would Jelena Jankovic expect after beating her double breadstick at Roland Garros? What would Justine Henin expect after a beatdown in Eastbourne just a couple weeks ago? Not to lose, but that's what happened.

Justine could've won this match in the 2nd set (like Jelena could've too actually), but she let it go. She had no plan B in the 3rd...it was somewhat gutless really, despite the fact that Marion played out of this world.

Venus would be wise to not make the mistake of overlooking this world-class tennis player. If she doesn't, she'll beat her.

Justine is so disappointing. She played awful 2day and could have been blown off the court if she had faced Venus. I'm a huge fan of Justine, but Carlos needs to give her some spanking for that pathetic match she played. Very very very disappointing!
She might not win wimbledon again. What a pity!

The reason Marion has not lived up to her potential is because of her crazy daddy. I thought it was crazy how right after Etcheberry got her in the best shape, they stopped working with him and now look at Marion. Somewhere down the line someone is going to make her pay for carrying around that much weight. I hope this run inspires her to get in better shape.
