I don't know if this has been posted in another thread but the National Post (a newspaper in canada) wrote and article today with the title of this....

"The Williamses Would Not Have Stood A Chance

And the woman rants on about how Justine Henin-Hardenne is making a name for herself?!?!? And that she is the new foil for the Williamses (ON CLAY). UGH I hate it when 100 year old people write about sports and (this is a bit off topic) I hate when 1000 year old people do movie reviews about new movies. There was too much ACTION BLAH BLAH BLAH....

The Williamses are Tennis,

and they willl

ALWAYS BE TENNIS.

No, tennis is a sport, not two people, you douche. And Henin is having a MUCH MUCH better year than both Williams sisters and is ranked higher. She is better.

The man is hyping justine but the very notion he has to mention the williams sisters and not let her achievement stand on its own just shows you how far venus and serena are in people's psyche.

Who knows if venus and serena would have won or lost? They didn't play so no one knows. The writer is just desperately trying to make henin's win seem more noteworthy. Pathetic. Her win can stand on its own imo and I can't stand the girl


ps

can u post the article I would like to read it.

To that point this was a fine post. And sure Juju is having the best year on the tour ("news item" - the W/S are people and do get injured). The "she is better" @ the end is a subjective value judgement and Juju's got to win some h2h vs. Venus, and something off the clay vs. Serena to establish that. Next time maybe either stick to the facts? (BTW, Serena did like win 2 Slams and essentially played Juju to a standoff @ RG that may or may not have changed based on the hand thing).

I guess this moron didnt see the 6-3, 6-2 beatdown Serena handed Henin at Wimbeldon. The only person to beat Henin these last few months on a faster surface: SERENA WILLIAMS, and she didnt CONVINCINLY. One things for sure, had Serena or Venus been playing that final against Henin, they sure would've made her earn it not get by with some massive UFEs like Kim did.

She is doing better this year but she has A LONG WAY TO GO to match them careerwise.

Yeah, Justine´s having a wonderful season. No one can deny that, but Serena´s ain´t that shabby either: 2 slams too, 2 other titles, thud 4 titles out of 7 tournaments played ain´t that bad. Plus Justine still has a longer way to go to defeat Serena on anything other than clay, whereas Serena´s pretty close to beating Justine on her best surface clay. In fact I find it stupid of Serena that she let the crowd into it...girl, you was winning!

The woman is having a great season because The Williamses havent picked up a racket since Wimbeldon. Not Justines fault, but this moronic imbosol is making it out like Justines is trashing everyone on the tour. Whatever.

Hey, the Canucks gave the world one of the greatest singer-songwriters ever! (1/3 of her ode to her native land):
Joni Mitchell---A Case Of You

Just before our love got lost you said,
I am as constant as a northern star
And I said, "Constantly in the darkness
Where's that at?
If you want me I'll be in the bar
On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue TV screen light
I drew a map of Canada
Oh Canada
With your face sketched on it twice
Oh, you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you, darling
And I would still be on my feet
Oh I would still be on my feet
:worship:

HAHAHHAHAHAH instead of the press giving Justine her a positive slam article, they went an focused on the Williams sisters with another negative article.

It's articles like this that really let you know just who the two most popular player's really are.

HAHAHAHAHAHAH
