World #2 Justine Henin-Hardenne of Belgium easily thrashed Russian #5 Svetlana Kuznetsova in straight sets in the finals of the WTA tour event in Doha last week, moving to within a few points of seizing back the #1 calendar-year ranking from Russian Maria Sharapova, who is only #3 on the 2007 race to the championship rankings, behind American Serena Williams and Belgian Kim Clijsters, because of her wretched play so far this year. Kuznetsova was able to win only six of 18 games played against the dominating Henin. Another totally non-competitive match when a so-called “dominant” Russian faces a highly-ranked non-Russian.
