Justine Henin is the US Open 2007 champion, outclasses Svetlana Kuznetsova

Justine Henin US Open 2007 winnerBelgian Justine Henin claimed her seventh Grand Slam title with a 6-1 6-3 victory over former champion Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia at the US Open.

Top-seeded Henin opened the match with a break, and added two more to take the first set. Fourth-seeded Kuznetsova didn’t use her opportunities, and that’s a must if you want to defeat a number one. For example, Kuznetsova wasn’t able to break Henin even in the games in which the Belgian double-faulted two times.

I had expected a closer match even though I knew that Justine Henin plays by far the highest quality of tennis. At this moment, with players such as Sharapova and Jankovic achieving less than they could, Henin's brilliance is evident more than ever. Another fact that shows Henin's dominance is that she won the US Open 2007 without losing a set. (photo via BBC)
