When two years ago Justine lost to Kim in the semis I thought that Justine was dominating and choked badly.

Today I could easily think that the only reason Justine won is because she played better, and that's obvious, normally the better player that day wins.

However, the result was greatly influenced by Kim not being herself. I did expect Justine to win this match but I thought it would be three tough sets, more a reflexion of where both players stand.

I don't think there such a big difference between the two. Justine did play well but Kim was only a shadow of herself today.

That by any means taints Justine's win. She did what she had to do, and keeping your mind cool is part of tennis.

but I think it's fair to recognize that Kim wasn't at her best and that's why the win was so easy, Justine could have won anyways if Kim was playing better but it would have been a lot tougher.

Interesting.

Virginia Rizici kept on saying that Kim's
forehand was letting her down throughout
the tournament and that was her downfall
today. Justine has a plan B now. She's
improved her forehand, and serves. The back
is still insane. Kim on the other hand- the
forehand is off; and it looked like she just didn't
have a plan B. I don't like putting the blame on
Leyton; but I also think his loss to Tommy Rebredo
sort of put a wrench in confidence for her. I doubt
it didn't bother her. He looked depressed ever since
that loss. These tennis relationships are very
tricky things.
