Henin's return of serve

given she makes it to the final, she will have to come up with substantially bigger returns if she is to trouble Venus Williams

she is just bringing the ball into play, nothing more, even on a weak serve like Bartoli's

Re: Henin's return of serve

I agree that she'll need to gamble a bit more to avoid letting Venus get on top of the point right away.

Re: Henin's return of serve

She also needs to have a high first serve percentage or Venus will feast on her second serves. It should be an interesting final if Henin gets past Bartoli.

Well, she can return big serves well... we all know that.

Re: Henin's return of serve

Justine is the second best returner in the game after Serena. I'd be willing to bet the house she'll get to match point against Venus. I'm less than 50% sure she'll be able to win that match point. Technically, Justine is the best player in the world by a long way. Mentally, she's still somewhat of a choker. She's a fighter as well, but she can choke.

she's not in the final yet

and she gets a lot of serves back, but by just blocking them. Even if it's a 100mph serve

Re: Henin's return of serve

She can return Serena's serves (and everybody else's) so I think she'll be able to against Venus as well.

Re: Henin's return of serve

Well to be honest, Justine is playing Marion and thus is probably just implementing her tactics against Marion. I'm sure it'll be different against Venus.
