Re: Winter (Australian Summer) Outfits [And RG, Wimbledon, US Open]

Oh, my. I think Venus' dress is actually the worst outfit that has ever been seen on a tennis court.

Re: Is There Anyone Else Who Started Out Liking A Player, But Now Cannot Stand Her?

I used to like Kirilenko for a bit but, after a while, I realised that although she has great variety, she's not a smart player because she doesn't know how to use it and I find that frustrating to...

Re: Place the Prospective R16 Matches on the Show Courts

They will only put one womens' match on CC and, although I would prefer to watch Kim/Justine if I had tickets, I think they will go for Maria/Serena and that they should go for that. Both matches...

Re: Someone talk me down but

I think she does have talent but I'm slightly dubious about her potential just because she hasn't made any big noise on the senior tour yet. Looking at her record, she's only won one ITF title and...

Re: Players responses to Fran winning RG

Justine in Le Soir:
"It was very beautiful. It's a girl who gives a lot over the years and at age 30, has lived the apotheosis of his career. She played smart, tactically, against an adversary (Ed:...

Re: Is Francesca Schiavone an opportunistic and her Slam just a fluke?

She saw an opportunity and grasped it with both hands. Is that opportunistic? Maybe but that's not a bad thing. Plenty of players don't grasp their opportunities, is that somehow better?

Re: So, this is it! - WWW RG R3: [12] Maria Sharapova v Justine Henin [22] ???

I think Justine shown some good tennis so far - I'm surprised that so many think she's not in good form. She's not been in blistering form but I think she's looked really solid. I haven't seen...

Re: Players you're supporting or dropping support for

I only really have the one fave - Justine - but the list of players that I enjoy watching varies. I like Jankovic and Aga for their style of play, I like watching Wickmayer because she seems to have...

Re: WG Plays Off : BEL 2- 1 EST -- Kaia Kanepi def injured Justine Henin 6-7 (6) 6-4

I thought that the main way that the injury had affected her was that she didn't get much sleep last night - she said that in an interview - and she just looked exhausted throughout the match. Not...

Re: Henin on Woz: "I was surprised with the way she played, she has been really tough

She did do her homework. From another bit of the interview:

Q. Were you surprised how she kept points alive for so long when they seemed won by and you they were still going?
JUSTINE HENIN: ...

Re: Wickmayer's Dad is not very happy with Henin and Clijsters

Yanina's dad is talking rubbish - both Kim and Justine have played a lot of Fed Cup. Not every single tie, no, but they've both played a lot, they've won the Fed Cup for Belgium and Justine brought...

Re: How high will Justine Henin re-enter the rankings?

Re: Have we settle the peak Henin vs peak Venus debate yet?

Having recently rewatched some old matches, I don't think the US Open 2007 was Justine's best tennis at all. I think she really hit her peak in 2003-4 (from the clay season in 2003 to the Australian...

Re: Serena is the road block in Venus Career From Reaching Greatness.

Obviously the best player in any generation stops the others from winning more.

Also, I don't buy this "Venus has a mental block about playing Serena" stuff. She sure as hell didn't seem to at...

Re: What level player is Clijsters, really?

In terms of achievements, there is a clear gap between Clijsters and Serena, Justine and Venus.

Some would claim that Clijsters is just as talented, she has just underachieved, because she can go...

Re: "Game-wise Kirilenko is comparable to Hingis" -- Tarpischev

Kirilenko has more variety than most players on tour (though I think she's overrated in this regard) but having variety does not make you a smart player. You have to know how to use it and she...

Re: When was the last time Henin was given a code violation for coaching?

Can someone upload a match in which you can see this happening? I'm not being funny, I'm really curious to see it because I honestly never see it on the matches that I watch.

E.g. I watched the...

Re: When was the last time Henin was given a code violation for coaching?

I'm always really confused by this discussion. I don't know whether it's just the livestreams that I watch or what but I have never seen Carlos give Justine an obvious signal and I never see Justine...

Re: Venus: ONE slam semifinal (outside of Wimbledon) in the last 7 years

Ultimately, it's her life and her decision - if she just doesn't care about winning the AO and RG, that's her business. But, undeniably, I think, she could do things differently if she wanted to and...

Re: Should Venus Williams retire at the end of 2010?

She should retire when she wants to, like anyone else. Some players - like Conchita Martinez - play on well past their prime because they want to and enjoy it. Venus still has good results but,...

Re: Venus: ONE slam semifinal (outside of Wimbledon) in the last 7 years

They aren't surprising but I don't see why that means she can't be criticised for them. There is no particular reason why she shouldn't do better at both - it's obvious, for instance, and a lot of...

Re: Henin: Is her backhand really better than her forehand?

For me, at the beginning of her career, it was definitely the backhand that was better - her matches in 2001-2 have a lot of backhand winners and relatively few forehand winners. Then, she improved...

Re: Kim Clijsters, 'I made the mistakes; she didn't do much.'

Does that really surprise you? As you know, I don’t care for Kim, so you may not agree with this assessment but, looking at it as objectively as possible, I think it’s always been the case that she...
