Gonna Hardenne my heart...

My last punny post of the day, I promise. Justine Henin-Hardenne, like Andre Agassi, is a player I've traditionally rooted against (while rooting for Capriati, Clijsters, and Sharapova). Hardenne reached the U.S. Open women's final today, beating Jelena Jankovic, who basically wilted in what would prove the pivotal eighth game of the second set.

Jankovic was still up a set at that point, but you could see her spirit was broken while Hardenne gutted her way past twelve double faults. If you let her hang around, even for one game, she'll probably win that game and the match.
