Roland Garros day 9

1 06 2010

The highlight of day 9 was of course the match between Justine Henin and Samantha Stosur. Justine played a great first set , very aggressive and won 6-2. Second set though she played very inconsistent and let Stosur make the match, Samantha played fabulous tennis and won 6-1. When she plays like that I do not see anyone beating her on clay. The heavy topspin and “manly” strokes are just too much for about anyone. Last set I thought Justine would pull trough leading 4-3 but she choked it away making tons of errors in the end and lost for the first time  in more than 40 matches at Roland Garros. Just is not the old Justine yet, too passive most of the time and aggressive at the wrong moments. Being a fan of Daniela Hantuchova is hard because she can fuck up so royally at crucial times. Having breakpoints in the first set at 4-4 against Jankovic and from then on making the silliest errors. In the end she was just way too inconsistent to win clay, Jankovic makes it to the final 8, 6-4 6-2. Serena Williams had an easy match against Shahar peer 6-2 6-2 and Yaroslava Shvedova made her first quarter at a slam beating Groth.
