Who will win their first meeting next year?

This is the most taboo issue on the forum because quite honestly Serena fans don't like discussing the rivalry.

Re: Who will win their first meeting next year?

I love discussing the rivalry.

I say Serena, unless it's on clay. Serena is a bit fitter than she was back in 07. But who knows what will happen now that she's in hibernation mode.

Re: Who will win their first meeting next year?

Serena, because when she's healthy no-one can beat her and she's an inspiration and she's always beaten Henin in every "important" match in her career ("important" meaning every match Serena has won) and because tournament organisers and linespeople are racist and always conspire against her but she just soldiers on and because Henin is on steroids and is a cheater and a quitter.

Clearly you need to hear from some of us more rational Serena fans.

Re: Who will win their first meeting next year?

I have no problem discussing the rivalry. I have issue with Justine fans wanting to act as if Serena was Justine's bitch and can only win when Justine isn't playing, which is a load of crap. I am picking Serena to win thier first encounter.

Justine is totally Serena's bitch.



Even when she's winning.

Especially when she's winning.

Depends on when it is. The longer it takes for them to meet the more I lean toward Justine (excluding any injuries in the interim).

Like any other time, for the most part Serena wins - except on Clay.

i agree with this, by the time the clay seasons swings round we should know henin's level, and if they haven't met by then henin will be more confident having got matches behind her.

it will be a must see, whoever wins and whatever time in the year it is.

Re: Who will win their first meeting next year?

Which of course means Henin will be even more in form for Wimbledon since she'll have even more matches behind her, right?

Not exactly true. Justine does have the edge on clay (4-1), Serena does have the edge on hardcourt (also 4-1) but they're 1-1 on grass and 0-1 (to Serena) on carpet. So, it's more - Justine wins on clay, Serena wins on hardcourt, and they haven't met enough on grass/carpet to really give much of an indication of anything.

Re: Who will win their first meeting next year?

The later Serena and Justine will meet each other in a tourney, it's gonna be Serena as the winner. Face it, Justine can't and will never beat Serena past the quarters when it's not on clay.
