Amélie is in the final again! She's still unbeaten this year. Will it stay that way?

(1) Amélie Mauresmo FRA d. (5) Mary Pierce FRA
I'm not sure about this one. Mary is playing very good and I have a weakness for her. I have a weakness for all 'older' players (perhaps because i'm a little older too). But Amélie has the upper hand after the YEC. Three sets.

(4) Shahar Peer ISR d. Jelena Kostanic...
Australian Open, Grand Slam
(8) Justine Henin-Hardenne (BEL) d. (3) Amelie Mauresmo (FRA)
I think Justine is getting better and better. This one's hers! Amelie just has to bite her racket, no Grand Slam title for her. First set Amelie, great fightback by Justine. Final set lasting an hour...
Oh yeah.. and although Kim's #1 again, watch Justine also go at to least to #2 later this year, and who knows...? ...
