By Martyn Herman LONDON (Reuters) - After a succession of blunderbuss women's finals at Wimbledon, Saturday's showpiece between Amelie Mauresmo and Justine Henin-Hardenne promises an old-fashioned dual of flashing backhands, subtle slices and rapier volleys. Following the biff and bash of the Williams sisters, the shrieking intensity of Maria Sharapova and the bludgeoning blows of Lindsay Davenport, a clash between the elfin-like Belgian and the swashbuckling Frenchwoman could be a...
