Justine Henin wrapped up 2 weeks of methodical tennis tonight the same way she started—by not dropping a set en route to a solid thumping. The victim this time was Svetlana Kuznetsova, the score 6-1, 6-3, and the prize the US Open title. It's the 2003 champion's second Open crown and her seventh major.
"I had 2 amazing weeks and played my best tennis," said the top seed and world No. 1, the first woman to defeat both Venus and Serena Williams en route to a grand slam title. She took less than 90 minutes to dispatch the fourth-seeded Kuznetsova, who vowed "to be back with a better game in the final next time."
