Justine, You Stink

Justine Henin wants everyone to know there’s absolutely no way she’s coming back to professional tennis.

“No, no competition is over for me. For me, it’s definitely over. When I took my decision I knew it was forever. So I don’t say I will never be back for an exhibition or for another event in the future. But for me (playing) on the Tour? Yeah, it’s in the past and I won’t come back. I made the right decision and I stick to my decision. I will never change my mind about that decision.”

That stinks, Justine! What I would do to have her come back. Women’s tennis got about 400% uglier to watch when she left and it just keeps getting uglier.

You Can’t Spell “Dominate” without SERENA

Serena Williams thouroughly demolished world No. 1, Justine Henin, in the Sony Ericsson quarterfinals, 6-2, 6-0, on Tuesday. Serena looked brilliant while Justine struggled with all of her shots, especially her serve, double faulting 5 times. Williams won the last 10 games of the match, giving the world No. 1 a bagel in the second set, Justine’s second of the year. Serena is seeking her fifth Miami title and could meet sister, Venus, in the semis. With the win, Serena takes a 7-6 lead in the pair’s head-to-head.

Well, That’s Unexpected

World number 1, Justine Henin, lost in the quarterfinals of Dubai to Francesca Schiavone today with a score of 6-7 (3), 6-7 (4). Henin was previously undefeated  at Dubai, winning 17 straight matches. Could this be the beginning of the end for Justine Henin? I sure hope so. I’m so sick of Justine winning everything.

In more quarterfinal action we saw a less shocking but still surprising upset. Elena Dementieva took out world number 2, Ana Ivanovic, in 3 sets, 5-7, 6-3, 6-3. I know a lot of people are bashing Ana because of this recent loss saying that she’ll never win a grand slam and whatnot, but they really have to look at the big picture. First off, Dementieva is a two-time grand slam runner-up and former Top 5 player, not exactly pathetic. Also, Ivanovic is coming off an ankle injury that forced her to withdraw from Doha only a week before. So people, you can stop writing her off as an underachiever, she has plenty of time left.
