    I will say Hardenne in straight sets, unless Maria plays out of her mind.

    Agree. Straight sets. Justine knows how important to do it in two.

    They just came on the air - the roof is closed because of the heat. That probably favors Sharapova - for the serve and because Henin could probably handle the heat better.

    PS - I'll take JHH in 2 also - Sharapova hasn't been playing that well and is lucky to be in the Semis.

    Molik is commentating here, and picks HH for the Title based on her win over Davenport.

    Thanks, Yours!05. That's a very interesting tidbit.

  8. JHH is so powerful. Perfect strokes. MS is strong too but she's a little bit sloppy, UEs.

  9. I say either JHH or Clijsters is going to take the trophy home. Can't decide between those two though!

    Molik has also been court-side for some of the post-match interviews. :D It's nice to see her still involved even when she isn't playing.

    Sharapova leads 2-1. HH serving.

    this is the first time in awhile a reasonably healthy maria is considered a clear underdog. it will be interesting to see how she responds.

    if maria were serving well, she would be tough to beat. cant get a first serve in.

    Maria got the break back and just fended off a break point on her own serve.

    4-all, deuce on the Sharapova serve.

    Game Sharapova. After the changeover, Henin will serve to stay in the set.

    Why is this match so slow? :(

    Ouch. JHH was up 4-3 and loses 3 straight. She's going to regret letting that floater go by instead of tapping it into the open court.

    JHH's forehand is really going to cr*p... let's see if Sharapova keeps going at it.

    Henin draws first blood, breaking Sharapova in the first game of the second set.

    JHH can't consolidate the break again. 1-1.

    Did Sharapova just hit the worst drop shot in the history of professional tennis on the 1st point of the 3rd game? It hit on the service line.

    Not as much volume as her grunts 2 years ago (when she won Wimbledon) but nearly as annoying.
    I thought she toned them down last year
    Wonder why she's back on the grunting again.

    Pulling for JHH. Can't rightfully pull for MS. Never liked her, hard to put a finger on it. Don't find her attractive either. The grunting certainly makes it easier to pull against her. My first post BTW, just found your website and happy to see a msg board about tennis.

    I used to like Sharapova but her game leaves alot to be desired, she beats all these other players but when she faces the elite crop of players, she doesnt get it doned!

    Another pathetic attempt at a drop shot by Sharapova - this one didn't even make it to the net.

    Looks like we're going 3 sets...

    JHH is firing on all cylinders now. Her footwork is perfect and timing is fantastic. This might be a quick 3rd set also.

    Hardenne can easily be number 1 for all I care... but she gets injured all the time, then she comes back and wins whatever she attends.
