Like her or not... you can't deny...Justine is a hell of a player...
Those first 11 games... were won without a loss... and Safina didn't really play badly... JHH moved well, was focused on the ball... and was in control...

WOW.... there were a few points in that first set that ONLY Serena could have even come close to mathing...

She has definetly taken her game to a new level...

Justine is the future of tennis, a combination of power and perfect finesse.... And she's not a giant! Way to go girl, keep it up Justine.... You can do it! :clap:

those who don't like her are really missing out. I truly feel sorry for those people who cannot appreciate someone like Justine or Roger. I know she has not been perfect but she is not as bad as the haters make her out to be. she really has exhibited a lot of courage and heart her whole life. She inspires the hell out of me.

Wait just a minute, I don't dislike Justine....but, shit, Safina????? I mean, who tha' fuck is she playing...I mean, really. Who tha' fuck is Safina??? Sure we've heard of her because she's Marat's baby sister, but damn. Has she really made a splash on the women's tour?? Hell No!!! I could she it if you were all getting crunk because JuJu whipped a player like Maria Sharapova's ass, but Safina. Shit, I don't even know her first name. Come on now, just because she convincingly beat her doesn't mean a thing because Whatever Safina is a long long stretch from a Serena or a Venus Williams. Hell, a long ways from a Jen Cap or a Lindsay D. as far as that goes. Go USA! And stop licking Justine's ass after every little victory, pleez.

Safina already won 2 WTA tournaments, Sharapova didn't win anything.

So, Safina's name hasn't been floating around as much as Sharapova's. Oh, and I never ever claimed to be what you people like to call a "REAL TENNIS FAN" anyway. I've only said that I like to follow the Williams sisters. Hell, I would guarantee that every ass who posts on this message board is not a so called "TENNIS FAN". Everyone has their favorites, so that argument is tired as hell. Come up with something new why don't you. Oh, and since I'm not a "REAL TENNIS FAN", ofcourse I don't know or give a damn how many tournaments Safina has won. And only 2 at that, and you guys are here bragging on Justine for beating her. Shit, she was supposed to beat her ass and somebody should've beaten hers if she didn't. Face it, this tournament is a damn cake walk for both Justine and Kim. They're the new "Williameses" in this tournament, you know it, so why are you jumping off of roof tops everytime Justine wins a match?

Venus had a CAKEWALK DRAW at Roland Garros last year or have you already forgotten that? She played Clarisa Fernandez in the semis for goodness sakes. And yet she got to the finals and will be remembered for that but at least kim and justine will have hard quarters and semis which is what usually happens in grand slams on the women's side anyways.

Safina DID play badly. Justine played VERY average tennis (for Justine). She was under no pressure whatsoever. That was an exo for her, basically.

Thank you Hail-Venus. Well said. They are acting as though Safina is a Serena, Venus, Jen, or Davenport.

Right! Safina still is under the AER, it isn't fair to judge her. Take her average points a tourney the past twelve months or the ranking of old. She wouldn't have been ranked around 63th but in the top 40, despite playing so few tournaments.

Justine has the BEST all round game among the players in the Top ten right now . Its but natural that some people are jealous of her and use lame excuses to hate on her but then that doesn't change a thing , does it ?

It's Dinara -- so now you know.

Did you watch her play last night? Not saying Sharapova won't improve, but right now Safina is the better player. The only reason Sharapova has made a "splash" on the women's tour is because of the publicty her marketing people have gotten her.
