View Full Version : Henin on Yan:"I'm very happy, because she's a very good player."

Q. Today it seemed as though you played more by analyzing Yan's way of playing and challenging it. And even she said so in the last press conference. Is that true or did you focus on your game or 50‑50?
JUSTINE HENIN: No, I think I was ready for a big fight because she proved she was a good player. But you know, just had to stay on my baseline, don't give her a lot of time. And I knew her forehand was her best shot, so I organized my game a little bit when I think about that point.
But except for that I just tried to play my game. I've been much more aggressive in the second set. So conditions were much better today than it was last night. So I'm very happy, because she's a very good player.

At least Justine admits Zi's great run in Toronto isn't just luck.
I think Zi has the potential to be a top 30 player at least though she's out of top 70 now. ;)

Nice and true words for Zi Yan there. She has done so well this week and I hope her form continues.

Sam Smith was very complimentary to her too, but I suppose Justine's words are worth more.

what i watched from youxxxx, yan zi played some smart Tennis vs ana. for example, ana thought yan zi would hit the ball right-handed side, yan zi just hit the ball straight toward her :p

yeah, from what i saw today on TV, I really liked her angles! those are the angles double-handers can create!!
prob. there's a room to improve her serve? i can see her coming into top 50.
