    I love Novak but he's going to get owned. Rafa's just hitting his straps

    Btw, this Berdych vs. Belluci match has been quite entertaining in Brisbane.

    Don't understand the Henin love on here, I don't like her at all. Quite boring to watch actually, I always root for her opponent.

    I think its more because she provides another challenge for the players at the top. It's always good for the game to have more players challenging for the slams.

    I'm not the biggest fan of her (I've said Serena is better than her about 50 million times in this thread over the last 5 years), but the thought of Venus, Serena, Clijsters, Henin and Sharapova makes Women's tennis well open again.

    Then you have Kuznetsova, Safina and Azarenka who all can play as well...

    That and Henin has a sweet ass backhand.

    Agreed and although I wasn't a massive fan of Henin, a player that returns to a competitive sport, improves the standard and makes the competition more intriguing can only be good for the game.

    I wasn't able to see Pennetta's victory today but shes been incredibly impressive so far in this tournament - I was somewhat cynical about her taking the number one seed initially but with her performances I'd have to take that back and certainly make her favourite to win the tournament tomorrow. Looks like her pairing with Schiavone almost saw her through to the doubles final too, losing after an extended third set to Black and Huber.

    Compensating for her front...I mean forehand?

    Lol, not exactly the most attractive chick is Justine.

    Btw, Federer is paying $1.53 against Davydenko in the Doha semi-final.

    I rate Davy, but Federer isn't losing to him twice in a row. Particularly in Doha.

    Henin was the best woman's player of the 2000s. Enough with this blasphemy.

    Federer warming to the task at present.

    Lol at the idea that the best women's player of the 2000s could not have won Wimbledon.

    Ha, Davydenko is playing some great tennis at the moment. Federer's serve wasn't working, but I thought that break he gave Davydenko early in the second set was weak. Federer tends to mope a bit these days when things aren't going his way.

    She was a million times the player that your girl Serena is. Pound-for-pound the best player of her generation.
