coolio has a little shameless behaviour in the past
QF Henin-Hardenne df Seles: 6-2 6-4...not as exciting as expected...

(6) Monica Seles (USA) vs. (1) Justine Henin-Hardenne (BEL) 4-2
2000-11-22 Fed Cup (WG-SF) BEL vs. USA Indoor Carpet RR Monica Seles (USA) 7-6(1) 6-2
2001-01-15 Australian Open Hardcourt R16 Monica Seles (USA) 4-6 6-4 6-4
2001-08-13 Toronto Hardcourt QF Monica Seles (USA) 1-6 6-2 6-2
2002-02-04 Paris Indoor Hardcourt QF Monica Seles (USA) 6-4 6-3
2002-06-24 Wimbledon Grass QF Justine Henin-Hardenne (BEL) 7-5 7-6(4)
2003-02-17 Dubai Hardcourt F Justine Henin-Hardenne (BEL) 4-6 7-6(4) 7-5


Monica in fact leads in H2H,
even though Monica struggled against Barna in 1R,
but she recoveres quite well beating Natalie 1, 2
while Justine had a free pass as Clarisa withdrew,
will the now hailed best clay/grass specialist, Justine,
who beat Serena last week prevail,
or will Monica, 3 time clay Slam Champ find a way
to beat Jusitne?
one thing can be sure, that this is gonna be a great matchup

I don't see Henin losing this. At the moment she is probably #1 claycourter in the world. Seles is just unlucky to draw Henin that early in the tournament.

If Justine is tired or wants to rest -- which I fully support -- I will allow her to lose this match.

Justine shouldn't lose this match under her best circumstances. Any other time, a loss to Seles would infuriate me...but if she lets this match go, meh.

Hopefully Monica.

But, I predict Justine in three.

I'll think Monica as a back-to-back-to-back French Open Champion as the better clay court player.

It could be tight,... but I see the leftie in two.

I think this is just going to be a fantastic battle - never mind the head to heads - look at the tennis they play - complete opposites and with both playing very well it could be an incredible battle like their last one not so long ago. There is one guarantee - Whoever wins this wins the tournament.

I hope Monica but I think Justine will win in two.
She has been playing well and had a break with the walke over.
