Henin easily overcomes Zheng to advance to Australian Open final
It took wild card Justine Henin just 51 minutes to win her Australian Open semifinal match against Zheng Jie, who--along with Li Na--made Chinese tennis history with her Melbourne run. Zheng, whose serve is a major flaw in her game, could do very little to hold back Henin, who served beautifully and allowed her opponent to win only one game. Henin's 6-1, 6-0 victory gives her a meeting with Serena Williams in the 2010 final. Williams is the defending champion, and has won the Open four times. Henin won the tournament in 2004.
