Serena Williams v. Justine Henin in Australian Open Final, Who’s Your Pick?

Tonight is the women’s finals of the Australian Open and what an exciting finale it will be. Tennis can not get any better. This is the match we all wanted to see when we first heard that Justine Henin was coming back to tennis. Luckily, the tennis gods allowed it to happen.

Serena Williams will face her rival Justine Henin with her Wilson K Factor KBlade Team racquet. In her last match, Williams initially struggled during the first sets against Na Li but she managed to regain focus and plowed through the end with a titillating win. Her determination to defend her title simply overwhelmed her opponent.

It wasn’t an easy road for Justin Henin either. It was an extremely tough path with wins over Elena Dementieva, Yanina Wickmayer and Nadia Petrova before skating through Zheng Jie the other day in the semifinals.

The formerly-retired Belgian definitely has a difficult match ahead of her. Luckily, Henin has had some court time and has been able to work out the kinks and clear the cobwebs a bit. And she just played the best two sets in her crushing win over Zheng Jie.

But she will be facing Serena, a tennis player with confidence, experience and power. Serena also has a history of winning at the Australian Open-- she just won the doubles title (again).

With both of these players having great incentives to win, we can expect a thrilling match. What are you picks and predictions? Let us know in the comments.
