Apparently, from what I've read the match is closer than it would first appear. Justine's better on the key points.

Things in common:

Both have one handed backhands

Both can play doubles well

Both have double last names

Both have repetitive nicknames : vivi and juju

Both have names with 20 letters: Virginia Ruano Pascual and Justine Henin Hardenne

Both are cute and fast and athletic

Both are hard workers

Both are in the quarterfinals

But sadly only one will be in the semis. :sad:

Justine started hesistating, vivi let her run over the court and Justine came 0-2 behind. Then she started to play better en won 8 games in a row 6-2 2-0. First set wasn't good, to many UE's but second set was very good and hopefull for the semi's :D

Great win for Justine, as was her win over Linsday the other night.
great way to start the year. I think her match with Venus will be close, but I think that Venus will win..

Ahh, leave him, he's from England, he's just bitter because such a small country as Belgium has 2 amazing players and England has *counts* oh yea... NONE!

People who anyhow criticise our Juju has nothing better to do...posting msgs that want to annoy people.

As long as many of us support Justine, no other bad things/criticisms will stand in our way! :angel:

Go JUJU!! :worship:

Jan 21st, 2003, 04:29 PM
Don't laugh at England, no need for that. Just ignore Bis, (s?)he's just a sad & frustrated bloke :sad:
