Justine won, that's all that matters....

Ivanovic and Jankovic are on fire.....as is Djokovic in the men's...this is Serbia's tournament.

Still hoping for a Federer, Henin double

Federer's second set was painful to watch. I find it quite funny that when he starts missing, he misses really badly and looks nothing like the #1 player in the world. Some of those shanked backhands in the second were just ugly. Then somehow he woke up and started playing beautifully again and coasted through the last two sets.

The semi against Davydenko should be interesting. Davydenko has never beaten Federer but he's been playing well this tournament and I think he has a reasonable chance if Federer plays a mediocre match. In the other semi, the way Nadal has been playing, I don't think Djokovic - or anyone else - has much of a shot.

i don't get to watch much of the french open because i don't have cable, but what was described in the thread sounds like the crowd at the US Open, just regarding anyone playing an american, not a frenchman. drives me crazy every year...

Henin vs Ivanovic

This shall be a cracking match, particularly considering the ease with which Ivanovic bundled out Shazza.

Henin was also in top form, destroying the seemingly unstoppable run of Jankovic.

Nothing new on the men's front, yet more Federer (the media here are all about the grand slam and the hunt for 15 tournament titles because he will be, apparently, better than Sampras). Good thing there's Nadal to stop him on clay, or this would be as boring as the Williams sisters domination in the women tennis a few years ago.

Good play by Djokovic in the semifinal.

I hardly call Federer's dominance boring. He is a joy to watch, how amazing was his demolition of Roddick in the semi-finals of this year's Oz Open. Fun to watch.

The Williams' sisters dominance was boring. Their game was all about power, and thankfully we had Henin's exquisite backhand (along with the rise of the Russian quartet of Myskina, Kuznetsova, Sharapova and Dementieva) to put an end to the snorefest that was the Williams' dominance.

^ I'd probably take Mysinka out of that bracket. Where's she in the world?

With Federer it's pure dominance against a lot of pretty tennis players. When the Williams sisters dominated it was against a lot of players who weren't prepared for the power introduced into the women's game. Not to take anything away from Serena or Venus but you have to remember that the top players at that time were aging stars like Davenport and Capriati. The level of competition was greatly reduced back then compared to today. It was a transitional period in which the Russians needed to progress to the top of the sport. I find what Justine is doing far more impressive because of the level of competition.

Myskina was very impressive at the end of Serena's run. She was in a couple Grand Slam semi-finals and I believe won one. She has been injured a lot this year which has brought down her world rank.

I like watching him play and he is undoubtedly one of the tennis' biggest. I just wish there was someone at least challenging him - there is Nadal on clay but outside of that...Roddick and Hewitt need not apply.

With all due respect to his talent it's easier to win pretty much everything when there is hardly anyone giving you a run for your money. I'd like to see some rivarly like Sampras - Agassi, or Edberg - Becker.
