I must say that I'm very pleased with the outcome of this year's Roland Garros ladies finale. I was rooting for Justine Henin-Hardenne during the entire tournament. Part of the reason for that is her image, which represents the complete anti-thesis of modern tennis. Henin-Hardenne with her modest looks and tiny figure is complete opposite of the glamour models like Kournikova and Hingis and big girls like Williams sisters.

The only thing I didn't like about this final is its relatively short lenghth. Henin-Hardenne made a short work of Kim Clijsters. But expecting another epic battle, similar to Henin-Hardenne's victory over Serene Williams, would be too much.
