Justine Henin, US Open Day 1 Picks 2007
World number one Justine Henin
New York--(lawntennismag.com) Our picks for Monday:

Jelena Jankovic (SRB)[3] vs Jarmila Gajdosova (SVK) Arthur Ashe Stadium 1st match
Jelena's white, white teeth will smile after a quick win to open play.
Prediction: Jankovic

Justine Henin (BEL)[1] vs Julia Goerges (GER) Arthur Ashe Stadium 2nd match
Henin out to prove she can win still on surfaces other than clay.
Prediction: Henin

Roger Federer (SUI)[1] v. Scoville Jenkins (USA) Arthur Ashe Stadium 3rd match
Sco can hit some killer serves, but Federer does everything very, very well.
Prediction: Federer

Venus Williams (USA)[12] vs Kira Nagy (HUN) Arthur Ashe Stadium 4th match
The 29 year old Nagy has had some succes in lower level tournaments, but will be outplayed by Williams. More interesting than this match is how will Venus' EleVen line look?
Prediction: Williams

Angelique Kerber (GER) v. Serena Williams (USA)[8] Arthur Ashe Stadium 5th match
If Williams' thumb is healed, she will roll over Kerber in less than one hour.
Prediction: Williams
