"I've known my coach Carlos Rodriguez since I was 13, and yet I was shocked with his harsh analysis after Wimbledon. In the future, he never again wanted to see a repeat of that semifinal against Serena Willams. He was right."

"Winning in San Diego, without my coach, is one of the most important steps in my career. It proved that I had learned from Carlos's analysis. In the past, I wasn't able to change my strategy during a match. Now, I (by myself) knew how to found an answer to Kim Clijsters."

"You are looking at a new Henin. One example : for a long time I couldn't cope with the competition of Kim Clijsters. Playing against her suffocated me but now I don't have any troubles anymore when I play her."

"Clijsters's 1st place on the rankings doesn't do anything to me. I focus only on myself."

"I know some players don't like me. That's because I choose my own way. Many try to outplay me with power but I answer with intelligence."

That's good that she's able to win a tough match w/out coaching from the stands.

Oh really? Well she's come up w/seven incorrect answers in a row to Venus Williams. What's so intelligent about running all over the court sqaush shotting balls back over the net.

as I said in the other thread. she had therapy if you just take over what a shrink says then you start to talk like this which is maybe better since it often pays off

I am a little bit jealous, I am too stubborn and always say yeah but.................... after the famous love yourself cliché talk ;)

Is it the same arrogance as saying that you were 9000 notches below your level when you were beaten? Or saying that you weren't beaten but that you beat yourself? Or saying that you can go undefeated this season?

obviously u cant read. let me give you a little lesson

"my aim is to go undefeated this year" is not the same as "i can go undefeated this year". got it?

so she shoulda said "i plan to get beaten by that Belgian elf 2 times this year"? LMAO :lol:

Josh, re-read my message, especially the "right now" part. Currently, Serena is out of the tour, and Justine is doing a great job outdoing Serena in the arrogance department. Oh, how I would love it when someone spank Justine's a** at the USO!

This had me rolling on the floor:worship:. The Venus-Justine rivalry is too one sided to be called a rivalry. I dunno why, but I agree that Justine doesn't play 'intelligent' tennis against Venus. The last match I saw of them, she tried to out hit and out retrieve Venus :eek:. Get over the mental block Justine, you ain't gonna beat Venus (or Serena or Kim etc.) at her own game. I hope she brings a sturdier head to their next match.

Nice of all the ignorant Williams fans to come in and stomp all over Justine for having self-confidence. Weren't you the people that wanted to have the competition believe they can beat Serena, and step up to the plate? Well how the fuck is admitting a match is never "on your racket" stepping up to the plate? Justine *should* be trying to convince herself she can influence her matches against Serena, otherwise she'll never win.

Well if you look at the last match against Kim, it's what she has done after a bad start, she hits the ball longer and with more spins and hits some great angles while in the beginning of the match, she was hitting too flat and short.
And Carlos will not forget to remember this to her at the usopen.
I watch an interview of him yesterday in "Week-end sportif" and said he was disappointed by the way Justine played in Toronto, playing too much in the centre and not moving her opponent.

oh really and what's so funny about a stupid comment?

Justine lost to Venus last time at the AO. Since Charleston and even more since FO she's a different player. Much stronger mentally and her game is getting better and better. It won't take long before she beats Venus :)

I agree that the last quote can be interpreted as arrogance, but I don't see how the others are arrogant?
