Henin needs henin to win this match.
She should underscore her 2 slam titles with the No 1 ranking. No one should win 2 slams in a year and not have made number 1. Its just not good kharma She deserves it, and her style of play is different to many players and that is a positive thing, and when the game is getting more and more dominated by wonderful tall big serving powerful players, than contrast is good.
Tennis needs henin to win this match.
Henin needs the ranking to really lay down the gauntlet to the williams sisters and anyone else who thinks that they have the balls....... she needs make the statement 'sure you are great, but im no. 1 now and if you think you are better then you have to come play a lot and prove it. They probably will, and that will be good too.
Clijsters needs henin to win this match
Yes, she does! Kim is a great player. She is too good for all the crap that is talked about her. Beating justine tommorrow will not put to rest the simmering dissatisfaction that she is No 1 and still slamless. In fact, it will only get worse. They will start to say that she can only do it in the lesser tournaments. She is way too good to endure that. Let justine get to No 1, and let Kim come out in the slams next year and prove what a great layer whe really is, and get No 1 the old fashioned waythat people will ahve to respect .
Don't agree with 2 and 3, but #1 is reasonable.
