She sure is fun to watch!
I'm talking about Bartoli. Very talented player.
A thinking player with all the shots and mental toughness.

Not to take anything away from Bartoli (she was in the zone that day),
but Henin was a head case at Wimbledon. She admitted later that she
was worrying during that semi about having to play Venus in the final.

Yes, that was a mistake. Venus woulda started fave anyway but you
should never look ahead.

Henin crucified Bartoli 60 60 at the YEC later that yr.

Yes, but don't forget Bartoli beat Henin at Wimbledon, no less.
She is a crafty one.
As to Carla Navarro, she has a lethal BH. The way she puts all
her weight into it and unleashes with tremendous power is to
be seen to be believed! One-handed, too!

Carla Sanchez Navarro is a lot more exciting. Bartoli plays granny
tennis.

I like just for her variety--the two-handed forehand, weird serve,
early return of serve etc. Not just another standard-issue basher.

Her serve motion (I call it "the diver motion") is the most ridiculous
I've ever seen. Last time I saw her, I could not watch the whole match
because of that.
