    Kim vs Justine in the final....don't like Kim's chances, if you look at their previous matches on big stages :(

    Wow, what a shot to end the match on. JHH was like *SMACK!* like she was Sharapova's pimp on that last backhand. :D

    I wanted Sharapova to win so that I could cheer for Kim if she made the final. :(

    Now I'm going to have to back JHH all the way. :D

    Maria got a few bad calls, missed one or two opportunities she couldn't and shouldn't have missed but she was very tough and lost by only a small margin. She put up a great fight though, this surface suits Justine's game much more too, Maria would whip Justine at Wimbledon and USO.

    Congratulations Justine!!! Tough loss for Maria who got hosed on a couple of big calls in that last set, especially that mis-hit by Justine which was clearly out.

    What a tough match. Usually, when JHH is serving that well, I expect her to cruise. Maria played some pretty good defense in that match for someone who doesn't move nearly as well. The defense by JHH was outrageous!

    Regardless of who comes out of the Clijsters/Mauresmo match, I think the Final will be good one this year. I'm looking forward to it.

    You think Mauresmo can hang with JHH? I'm not so sure.

    Considering Sharapova made 25 million dollars last year in *endorsements*, I don't feel too bad that she lost! Go Justine!

    I don't know if she's going to win, but both play a higher percentage brand of tennis and both can play good defense and run down a lot of balls. Both women are very fit and fast and have the kind of shot variety you don't see too often in women's matches.

    I expect to see some nice long rallies in this match and not as many UEs and quick points as we'd normally expect when you have two baseliners matched against each other.
