    Her 12th grand slam title. Also won doubles with her sister. They are truly something else.

    This was pretty much expected. Serena dominates down under. Henin will be good to watch in the French, a major that Serena has had a tougher time with.

    She is a great player no doubt. But did she manage to do it without threatening someone this time? icon_lol.gif
    As the OP said, "truly something else." icon_rolleyes.gif
    Cheers,

    Although I am glad to see that Henin is back, I am glad that Serena won because I feel like Henin is trying to out-do Kim's US OPEN win by trying to win a major in 2 tourney upon coming back. Henin has had bad reputation on the circuit, but her games are amazing. Would have like to see Kim going further this tournament.

    what to say? except she proves she still the number one on the court. i don't think she plays very well at all but she had the strengh to win the good points and served very good.
    I think it's going to be very interesting on clay with henin but i'm looking forward to the next tournaments to see if the chinese players (especially Na Li) are still on top. And of course i expect Maria Sharapova and kim clijsters to be good threat to serena or henin.
    Honestly concerning Safina i really think she is done, and the clay tournaments will decide if she can be on top again.

    Watching this on ESPN right now, I guess I shouldn't have come to RJ at the break. Damn spoilers! ;-)

    So you think that Henin should have reached, say, round 3 and then pulled out? Isn't the point of entering a tournament to try and win the tournament?

    Syd_Hockey, you may have missed my point. I like Henin as a player, but I prefer players (eg Kim Clister, Svetlana) who are good, but do not have to win at all cost. Because of Henin's past behaviors on courts (French Open against Serena, Australian Open against Amelie), I would like Kim Clister to have a record that Henin can never claim (ie won an Open after 3 tournies) I am not sure where your "drop out in round 3" comment comes from. icon_biggrin.gif

    I missed your point because you didn't make your point.

    I am happy for Serena! I think that she really messed up at the US open and it will take a few years for people to forgive her. I guess winning majors will go a long way in doing that!! icon_biggrin.gif
    Now, if we could only get Andy Roddick winning a few!! icon_biggrin.gif

    Don't overlook Americans Bob & Mike Bryan. They won their 8th Grand Slam doubles title with the Australian mens doubles win.
