The decline of Henin and Serena back to no.1

she can be overpowered easily

Re: The decline of Henin has started

It is too early to say that. She can be overpowered, but it is not easy. A player has to hit four or five winners in every single rally to beat her. Maria is the only player who can do that, and there's no evidence that she'll be able to do that match in, match out.

I feel that way too! Not like overpowered but more like the fall the Belgiums.

Re: The decline of Henin has started

Just because of one terrible loss, and you say Henin's decline has started?

Dude, then what about your fave?

Re: The decline of Henin has started

Maria is over 6 foot and Justine is around only 5'5. Of course she can be overpowered if a power player like Maria plays flawless power tennis like she did tonight.

The morons stating Maria was "always a better player" than Justine are really making a bold statement saying that.

when Maria lost 0-6 0-6 to Lindsay people similar threads were created...and she came back strong. no reason why Justine should not recover from this bagel.

Justine for Wimby

Re: The decline of Henin has started

Justine can be overpowered, but in the better part of a year, only one player has possessed the right kind of power.

I'm sure Mirza overpowers Justine when they play...

Re: The decline of Henin has started

I'm not Henin's favorite fan but I know she has top game.

Carlos was a tool. He said hit the ball down the middle? Justine couldn't get into her game because she was facing pressure all night.

All top players have bad matches but I am no fool. Justine will be around for awhile. A long while.

at least, we're not making up excuses. Maria was better and deserved to win. I didn't hear that comment from many Williams fans.

Re: The decline of Henin has started

I don't think Justine is going away but rather other players are improving tremendously. Justine MUST work on service variety. She cannot grow an extra 4 or 5 inches tall and get as many cheap points. But against maria today most players would have been utterly overpowered except maybe for a williams sister playing at her absolute best. Kinda hard to do much with a ball you cannot reach. Plain and simple. Now justine needs to figure out how to improve her serve first and foremost and tend to her knee and just keep working hard.

Justin with such a poor serve doesn't deserve the no 1 spot. Look at Federer

Justine and Serena are OUT. It's the changing of the new guards, making the way for Sharapova, Jankovic, and Ivanovic generation
