Great! :D
I hate that Dutch commentator on Eurosport! :mad: I saw both of Justine's matches and he almost couldn't say a good word about her! If she made a point/hit a winner, he said :"Nice done, but it was an easy one,..." The whole match he kept doing that: really irritating and annoying!!! :mad:

How is that possible? It is a night match, so it is at 7:30 Sydney time? So you probably mean that it is at 9:30 am, not pm?

OMG WHAT THE HELL? Why does the US always get the worst television coverage? Cause we are obsessed with 350 lbs. giants running after eachother trying to grab a ball- and destroying eachothers bones in the process. :rolleyes:

What happened to Justine ? :rolleyes:
For those who watched the match, was Justine playing badly ? Or was Kim that good ?

Kim-Lindsay should be a nice, competitive match-up.
Good luck Kim, you can do it !

Justine was good, Kim was better. Also, you can see the mental thing, I don't think Justine will ever come over it :(

Congrats Kim!! Now win it!

I agree with the commentator on Eurosport, Justine should work on her forehand. Maybe another grip? I think it's too extreme and when the ball comes fast and hard she often doesn't have an answer or mishits the ball.

Anyway, well played Kim!

Yeah, and also low slices end often in a mishit from Justine.

Justine didn't play bad, she had a few breakpoints against Kim too, but she couldn't convert them. She also often gave Kim the chance to come back in some of her own service games: she was up 40-0, 40-15,...and let Kim come back.

This match was definetely better than the previous one. Kim's play and serve were just more constant and Justine made more UE's at some points.
I think it was positive for Justine that she didn't seem so stressed in this match against Kim. In a lot of their previous matches you could see the nerves on her face and that was a lot better today I think! :)

Congrats, Kim!! Good luck in the final now! :bounce: :bounce:

And the final game was tasty too, yeah it was a good match, too bad about the stats.

GOOD LUCK DAVENPORT !

Looks like Kim is on fire for the title...
Patty, Chanda, and now Juju... all knocked off in easy 2 sets! maybe Lindsay tomorrow...
It'll be little scared me for the possibility of Rena vs Kim in AO semis... Perhaps that Rena can stop her like Hopman's Cup match last week!

I still saw it, and she shaked her head alot too, it will be difficult to get over it.

Thank you Belgian Girl and Noodles, for bringing me up to speed.
I look forward to watching that tape tonight !
At least Justine didn't play too badly.
I am not sure about Justine never overcoming that mental block against Kim. After all, she already posted some nice wins against Kim (on clay and grass, namely). Kim is definitely the better player now. Although, in my opinion, Justine's game will take a bit longer to develop, and we may have to wait a couple of years before she reaches her full potential.

Juju will get there one day, she just needs time hihi ...
And about Kim = congratulations! Now get Lindsay!

I'll say one thing about this match - the score didn't justify how good it really was.

Wimanna
Jan 10th, 2003, 11:57 AM
I really enjoyed this match...both players played some great rallys and were fighting from the start till the end...especially that last game was really => :eek: woww, Justine kept fighting and Kim catched some impossible balls and even made a winner of it...:eek:
Great match....lucky I taped this one ;)

Good luck in the final Kim!!!! :bounce:

No Justine wasn't bad at all! Good serve (1st +/-60%), only one DF, great rally's, great points! But at the big times Kim made less UE! It was a very good match with a lot of super rally's. In the first set Kim was much better (but Justine didn't play that bad!) and in the second it was more equall! Justine didn't use the BP ... 1 by missing an easy volley :sad:

Kim was good thats for sure but I think the gig diffrent was that Kim played already more (big) matches.

I'm confident for Justine in the AO! :)

Do you play tennis yourself Josh? Than you know that it is VERY difficult to switch gripps :eek: Ok I'm not a pro at all but I think that she doesn't have to start to change the grip ... It will take several months at least ...

I understand that now. I just thought the scoreline was a bit hard on Justine
