2007   US OPEN


              JUSTINE    HENIN             v        SVETLANA KUZNETSOVA       

6-1 , 6-3

Top seed Justin Henin became the US Open women's singles champion for the second time with a 6-1 6-3 victory over Svetlana Kuznetsova

to claim the seventh grand slam title of her career.
It capped a monumental effort for Henin, as she beat the Williams sisters back-to-back and became the first person to do it en route to a Grand Slam title.

Henin disposed of Serena in the quarterfinals, and then ousted Venus in Friday's semifinals.
Not only that, but the top-seeded/world No. 1 Belgian, also the 2003 U.S. Open champion and last year's runner-up to Russian Maria Sharapova,

did not drop a set at this '07 fortnight.
"This one is maybe the most important one," Henin said. "The quality I played in the last few matches is amazing.

 It's just a great feeling because I had a tough draw and I had a lot of things to prove to myself - not to anyone else, just to myself. And I did it.

 So I've been so consistent for two weeks and so calm, so relaxed, and it's been great."
