Watching the match live in Rod Laver Arena, it was very evident to me that Mauresmo had a plan to remove Justine's backhand weapon. She hit so many balls to her backhand, but made sure they were loopy, high-bouncing balls. Justine could not be offensive on these balls, and instead constantly backed off to hit a mediocre backhand - often playing metres behind the baseline. Sick or not, I don't think you can do much with this type of ball, if you have a one-handed backhand like Justine's. Amelie kept the backhand pressure on until an easy put-away came up. Very clever play in my book. I think this is a great tactic for all players who have an extreme grip, one handed backhand. Hit it deep, loopy and try to get as much bounce on the ball as possible. The player will either have to risk hitting it early, or back off and play defensively.
