Belgian finale in Brisbane

8 01 2010

Who would have thought 18 months ago that the first finale of 2010 would be between Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters??. Kim obviously has already won the U.S Open last year so was kind of expected in the finals. For Justine though it was the first tournament since over 1.5 years. Both girls had a hard quarter-final, Henin beating Czink in a third set tiebreak and Clijsters beating Safarova in three sets but the semi final was much easier. Kim beat Petkovic in 2 easy set and she same happened for Justine against Ana Ivanovic. This will be the first time the girls meet since 2006. In the early stages of their career Kim usually came out of top, later it was Henin who mostly mentally was a lot stronger. This time I think(and hope) Kim will win because Justine is still a bit rusty at times. Both are right away big contenders for the Aussie Open title, if only they are not gonna be too tired after 2 pre tournaments.
