Australian Open day 11

28 01 2010

The tournament gets a dream-final. Serena Williams against Justine Henin. So far Williams won more of their matches but Justine won more matches during slams, when it mattered. They have never been in the final of a slam against one another though, surprisingly enough.

Justine had it very easy against Jie Zheng. Zheng made hardly any winners and Justine played fantastic tennis. In just 51 minutes this match was already over. Cost Justine little energy and that was important because she mentioned this week that she was starting to become tired. Serena had a much tougher opponent today in Na Li. Williams seemed still tired from yesterday’s match and showed another sluggish performance. Li played pretty good and let Serena really work for it with pounding groundstrokes. But on the key moments Li made too many mistakes and Williams had that thunderous serve that made ace after ace. If both women bring their a or b game saturday it should be a great final. How fantastic would it be if Henin wins the title but I put my money on Serena. Betting against her almost always costs you money!
