Henin-Hardenne: 3 Slams and still no TW cover!
Am I the only one who's shocked at Henin-Hardenne's absence (still) upon the cover of Tennis Week? 3 Slams and the year-end #1 ranking, and yet she continues to be rejected in favor of other players - mostly men. Gracing the covers for the those 3 GS Wrap-Up issues were Ferrero, Roddick, and, most recently, Safin (he didn't even win!); and upon the last issue of 2003 was Clijsters (for her WTA Champs win, I suppose). And usually TW likes to keep it pretty even with men and women for their special GS issue covers, but the last 5 Slams have all featured men on the top page. This isn't some personal rift between Justine and TW because they did give her a feature interview in one issue last summer. So then, what's the deal?
