Rafael Nadal and Justine Henin Wear Hats of Trickery

June 10, 2007 at 4:39 pm 1 comment

Rafael Nadal just completed his hat trick of winning Roland Garros for the third time in a row, beating Roger Federer in a match that played out almost exactly as last year, going to four sets.  Congrats to Rafa!

On the women’s side, it was Justine Henin trouncing Ana Ivanovic in the French Open finals yesterday.  In her two days waiting for the final, Ana apparently worked up signifant nerves and concerns to play unlike she’s played in the past year.  The French fans were no help, but they pride themselves on rudeness and hate, so whatdya expect.  Ana, fortunately, has this first Grand Slam final under her belt and has sufficiently been embarrassed enough that it won’t happen again.  I very much admire Ana, and not just because she’s so beautiful.  It really is the crafty tennis. 

So, should I open the can of worms now and make myself look like a sore loser?  Why not!  Has no one noticed the disappearance of something on Justine?  I know her biggest complaint of the game was that she didn’t like returning Williams-sized serves that have become the norm in recent years.  I find it odd that after a long absence for the flu (I still don’t get that “injury” claim), she came back with chest muscles bigger than most men and her … sorry, I have to go there … breasts seem to have gone away completely.  For all the horrid comments about Mauresmo, no one’s said “Justine looks like a man.”  Although now, someone just did.  Let the arrows fly.

Finally, there’s the drama surrounding the men’s doubles title winners of Mark Knowles and Daniel Nestor.  Breaking up after Wimbledon, or so the story goes, would end their relationship, but now they’ve finally won a Grand Slam, Nestor is waffling.  Odd, I would have thought it was Mark looking to dump him, after what played out here.

Onward to the grass season.  Two weeks and nine tournaments to go before All England Club’s Wimbledon.  And yes, I’ll be watching every round of every match leading up to it.  Well, I’ll watch the stats, that is.  I will only be able to see TV coverage of the Slam.  Pity.
