Henin does it again

Those of us who were hoping to see Jelena Jankovic break the curse today got that sinking feeling when--in the second set of her semifinal match in Stuttgart--Justine Henin, down 1-4 and 0-40--not only managed to hold serve, but then broke Jankovic. Katrina Adams, who I think is the best women's tennis commentator around, made an insightful remark about Jankovic--that she plays with more physicality than she needs to, and then fatigue sets in, and her serve suffers. We definitely saw that today. Final score: Henin def. Jankovic, 7-6, 7-5
