    Serena Williams and Justine Henin are yet again in the same quarter, who wins that matchup if it happens.

    I just can't see Henin winning on hard...Serena will get up for a match like this more than any other one in her life.

    I have a feeling Serena will pull out of the USO.

    This is Serena's home turf and she'll make Henin remember that well in straight sets.

    A thumb on her off hand a believe. She hasn't been able to hit a 2hbh for a while, even in practice.

    Again?

    Remember the days when Serena and Jennifer Capriati always met in the quarterfinals of slams? 2001 Wimbledon, 2004 French, 2004 Wimbledon, 2004 US Open.

    Now it's Serena and Justine.

    Time for Serena to get revenge for Paris and Wimbledon assuming she makes the quarterfinal.

    seedings wrong

    its dumb that these two should again be meeting in quarters of grand slam.probably the two best players (when injury free). there should be more seedings discretion.

    Well if Serena would get her butt up and out of the sofa and stop trying to market another career and work on her tennis career, she could be in the top five if not higher all year long. But, she does not--and therefore, she pays the price of running into the top seeds earlier than expected...

    I agree, when Serena is not citing an injury here or there, she is about the best in the game on a fast surface. Too bad Serena does not have her sister's devotion to the game.

    Yep, well said saram. She is extremely good on any surface but she needs to get her priorities straight if she wants to win consistently. I think that she likes to eat a little too much junk food. ;)

    let's hope she doesn't go out with andy roddick one night for some fast food or they will both be out of the Open sooner than later....;)
