The 1st meeting of multiple slam winners in this AO. Who wins?

Plexicushion + Henin in decent form (as per today's match) VS off-form Kuznetsova = Straight set win for Henin.

Sveta will have to play lights off tennis and Heng will have to be as erratic as she was against Mirza for Sveta to have any chance.

Justine in 2 if she plays well...in 3 if she plays badly...prefer first option. :lol:

Henin in 3....first 2 sets will be close, and justine will dominate in the third.

The h2h is 16-2 Justine, but they haven't met since before Justine retired, Sydney 2008

Justine will probably find a way to win but even though their head to head is 16-2 they usually always have close matches. Kuzzy usually plays pretty well down here so if Justine isnt firing on all cylinders things could get tricky....

Kuznetsova in 3. Henin will win the first set easily, then falter in the second. That will be all Kuznetsova will need to get into gear and really take it to Henin. The third set will be close to start but Kuznetsova will win the last 4 or more games in a row to take the win. The surprise finalist from this half will be Wozniacki.

Sveta is on a big slump, however she's been able to randomly play on a good level here and there (San Diego title, beat top 10 Stosur in Sydney). She's the only with nothing to lose I can see her giving Justine big trouble. :scared:

The competention starts right here. Get her Justine!. :cheer:

being a fan with blind faith I'll vote for Sveta:p time for a GS win against her Sveta:rocker2:

I actually dislike both of them. But I think it would be a great move from Kuznetsova if she win this one. So I go for Kuznetsova.
Plus, I'm sick and tired of seeing Henin on the court. She seems so affraid, so arrogant at the same time. Can't stand her anymore. Go back to retirement. Thanks.

Kuznetsova is probably the worst player in history to win more than one slam. Justine has 10 times more talent in her pinky than Sveta in her whole body. This match will be 2 routine sets.

Why not?
Venus is injured, Petkovic is :silly: , Vika is shaky...

and I was just kidding, I am sure that if Maria reaches the SF, she will pump it up ;)

Masha will not only reach the SF, she will win the title easily. I got my money on "Lady Jaja" vs Masha final :rocker2: :smoke:

I don't think Henin will have much trouble with Kuznetsova, in fact, I think it will be a huge confidence booster for her.

I like Sexlana but I desperately want a Henin/Venus matchup so hoping Henin gets the 'W' here.

You need to go see a doctor. I hear they set great stock in this radical new treatment for your condition; its called 'change the channel'.

From her interview to a Russian sports website
-Don't you get irritated by the fact you've won only 2 matches out of 18 against Henin?
- Not really. The fact that you're perhaps the fifth person who has asked me about it (today) is much more irritating
:hysteric: Gotta love her

Actually, debby, I don't think Maria will move to semis, neither Henin. I mean, she's not that impressive and I think Henin will lost to Wozniacki.

Did I ask for any medecine ? No. Then.
Seriously, I think she's so borring on court. Showing this eternal anxiety expression. Being at the same time that arrogant that self centered. I just do not like her attitude. That's it.

No comment about the rest especially that Maria looks arrogant as well lol
But that's your opinion !
