OK maybe its just me but today at the Medibank Justine and Sveta were practicing together. I cant ever remember of would ever have thought that the world number 1 and 2 would practice together, it just seems odd to me. It was a great practice session but I just would never have thought it would happen. Could you have imagined Hingis and Davenport or Steffi and Monica doing the same thing. Tell me what you think or is it just me being silly.

Was that when they oddly played doubles together and they were friends :confused: before it went a little sour

Henin was absoloutly pouding the ball she actually seems to hit harder than Sveta but Sveta hits with a great deal of spin.

It's not the first time they practice together. They are on good terms with each other. Their coaches are also befriended.

It's not that odd at all. :S I know Hingis practiced with Capriati even a few years ago, don't think they were 1 and 2 at the time though, but is it that big of a deal? Sveta and Justine seem like humble people that tread the WTA carefully.

Justine and Sveta get along well, it's not the first time they practice together.

I saw them practice together at FO 2006, on Saturday just before the beginning of the tournament. At the end of their practice, they were laughing together about something Sveta's coach told her (in spanish). 2 weeks later they were playing each other in the final.

justine also practices with jankovic sometimes

a little lesson to other players: practice with juju and she'll OWN you

:rolleyes: This is really nothing new (as other posts have said), they always practice together. I've seen them practice together on numerous occasions

She does hit harder than Sveta! It's quite amazing when you see Justine live at how hard she hits the ball.

I'm not sure she really hits much harder than Sveta. The amount of topspin Sveta puts on the ball is very deceptive.

I know :hearts::drool:

It's very deceptive for someone so small :awww:

But I just wonder why their practice seems to be odd. Quite usual, just two players practice together.

Lol I know what you mean, its like they should want to be big rivals not helping eachother improve, but it makes sense logically as Henin is the only higher ranked player, and Sveta is the next highest rank so they are both going for the player they think is best to improve the quality of their practise. :D

Get over it. And this has not much to do with this thread besides.

Lindsay practised with Martina on the morning before their 2000 Australian Open Final encounter.

UH... Justine could tell Kuznetsova what she is going to do on each and every point and 6-0 6-0 her still.

Practicing with Kuznetsova is not a liability.

That's the main reason for her being n.1 IMHO. Since the end of the Hingis era all that really counts in women tennis is to run and to hit hard, everything else comes later.:rolleyes:
