Henin-Hardenne into final
Justine Henin-Hardenne
World number one Justine Henin-Hardenne of Belgium will face second seed Amelie Mauresmo of France in the women's tennis singles gold medal match.

Henin-Hardenne beat French Open champion Anastasia Myskina of Russia 7-5 5-7 8-6.

The Belgian served for the match in the second set but then came back from 1-5 down in the third to secure the win.

Mauresmo also had to battle hard against Australia's Alicia Molik, before winning 7-6 (10/8) 6-3.

Myskina was understandably disappointed with her loss after being in a commanding position in the deciding set.

"If you're 5-1 up you have to finish the match, no matter what," the Russian admitted.

"Justine started playing a little bit better but I just played her game. I was too far from the baseline. That's why I lost."
