    I was thinking the same thing watching her, this morning. She's the poor-gal's Henin. Same style of play, same 1HBH, same build, same attitude, etc.

    Yep. Thought the same thing when I saw her hit that 1H backhand today.

    Could it be Henin? :shock:

    She's 32, so unfortunately no. She definitely doesn't have the rackethead speed off either side.


    Interesting, though, another short woman with a 1hbh, along with Henin, Schiavone, and Navarro.

    Henin would've closed out the match.

    I don't get it. Are you agreeing with me or not? Even in wedding attire she's still a dog.

    the british commentators were comparing her more to schiavone than henin.

    Juju had more fight in her little finger than half the WTA put together. Not to mention talent.

    Does look like a lot like Henin in her GS and profile as well

    Agree with the OP, quite unpleasant to look at.

    Italy really needs to step up their womens representation on court.

    I really hate to say it but some of the Italian WTA players are just unholy ugly.
