Funny thing is - I never particularly liked Henin. Not her tennis, just her as a person. Have to say watching her at the same slam - she was truly fabulous. But like you much prefer Kim.

Kim strikes me as a very pleasant, genuine young lady.  Always like to see her do well.  Henin I also like to see do well, just because she looks so frail, but has a steely determination.

Don't think Justine was/is that popular on the circuit. Steely determination she does have though.

Looking forward to James playing later but hope it isn't "emergancy ward 10"  stretcher for him against young DOLGOPOLOV duh what a name

Great that Bally got the opening set. Just a pity the way that the other sets went.  Rolling Eyes

I have seen both Williams sisters live, and didn't really enjoy it tbh. I don't enjoy women's tennis much either, but it's incredible how far Baltacha/Watson/Robson are coming atm and perking up my interest as well. I am sure I will watch a few women's matches on Monday as well!

Haven't watched the video, but a big shame, no doubt. One thing i've noticed, poigniantly today, but other times as well, is how much she lets the opponent see when she is annoyed with herself, like today, she put one return into the net, and she stayed put and sighed and huffed and puffed like she'd netted the ball when the opponent was out of court or something... She was definitely tense.

I was on her court yesterday, she played really well the first 2 sets. It was just always gonna go downhill after she was broken in the 2nd. Real shame. Her serve really went elsewhere in the 3rd set.

I hate the thing she does now walking into the corners after every point, the commentators said it looked like she was talking to the trees.
