Henin-Hardenne ousts Mauresmo in German Open semis

Written by: Staff

BERLIN, May 13 (Reuters) French Open champion Justine Henin-Hardenne humbled world number one Amelie Mauresmo 6-1 6-2 at the German Open today to set up a final with Russian Nadia Petrova.

The Belgian defending champion was in blistering form on the clay at the Steffi Graf stadium and will play the second seed tomorrow in a repetition of last year's final.

Mauresmo had earlier ended the hopes of Swiss former world number one Martina Hingis, winning the delayed deciding set of their quarter-final for a 4-6 6-4 6-4 victory.

Fading light late yesterday had forced the pair to abandon the match at one set all and Australian Open champion Mauresmo looked to be short on energy for the match with Henin-Hardenne.
