    Sure she might be a good player one day but right now she's pretty average and it's not like teen prodigies are a new thing in womens tennis even if she was one.

    Hey she just got a massive win against someone ranked over 200 places over her. Reason for some hype surely. Shame the sweaty let her down.

    Take it.

    Btw its annoying that Channel 7 can't even show a tennis tournament in Australia live on TV. ****ing hell.
    Get used to it. Fox don't have the rights to anything this year.

    Which means all we'll get in the first week is Federer, Nadal, Roddick, Williamses, Belgians and Aussies. Oh, and super slomo replays.

    Lol I just looked at my betting account and I backed Henin but laid against her twice, because I forgot I did it the first time.

    My disgraceful incompetence resulted in my winning $50. Fair to say I don't deserve that money at all.

    Was reading Tennis Insight. A contributor suggested that Federer lost to Davydenko on purpose so he wouldn't have to face Rafa before the Aust Open.

    Makes sense

    Man, I thought Big Footy was bad when it came to football talk, but it pales in comparison to MTF.

    Sachin has scored the most test runs ever, the most ODI runs ever, the most test centuries ever, the most ODI centuries ever, started when he was 16 and has been playing for 20 years.

    Not even similar at all.

    I hate it when they call Henin the female Federer. GTFO, Federer has won Wimbledon 6 times. Henin has 0.
    Haha I was only baiting .

    I don't think that's what people mean when they call her the female Federer. It's more to do with their particular styles than their achievements.

    What a great match, gutted Henin lost after those two match points; would have been an awesome way to return to tennis. But great match. She's looking good already.

    Federer comparisons mainly based on style, and their single-handed backhands, I would imagine.

    There's been hype about Laura Robson all week, but she was still losing her singles matches and 'holding up her end,' as the commentators said, in the mixed. Now that she's played very, very well against somehow who hadn't dropped a set all week and is ranked 20-something in the world... there will be more gushing commentators.

    Half the reason the commentators love her is because she's Aussie-born...

    Why if Henin has underachieved does that mean Serena has also been a career underachiever? You didn't provide any argument for why that is the case. And even if she has, she's still done more than Henin.

    And also, who is this weaker competition that Serena has beat? Henin played in the same damn era!
    You're the one who keeps on going on about Wimbledon like it's the be all and end all of tennis. If Henin is a failure for never winning Wimbledon, then Serena is an underachiever for not having anywhere near the same drive as other top players and never truly dominating the sport outside of 2002-03. What has Serena done since 2003 that's been so impressive? Showed up and won some slams? Held the World No.1 for a couple of weeks at a time? Lost at 19 Grand Slam events?

    At her peak, Henin was better than Serena. She had the Grand Slams and World No.1 to prove it. Claiming otherwise is like saying Nadal wasn't better than Federer during his time as No.1. Let's not forget that when Henin retired, Serena only had one more Grand Slam than Henin and 2008-09 were not vintage years for women's tennis.
