The fact is the whole idea of trying to "theorise" what "would" have happened if X or Y had been at tournament Z in full health is a waste of time. If Suzanne Lenglen had been at Wimbledon 2003, maybe she would have beaten Serena and taken the title! All we know is that neither Kim nor justine have taken Wimbledon when they were there and healthy. End of story.
Kim and Justine have also never had a Wimbledon as top players where both Williamses were ailing.
And on a level playing field, of course just because player A beats player B who beat player C, doesn't mean that player A can beat player C. But that goes for top 5 players, i.e. Mauresmo, Serena, Venus, Lindsay, Kim, Myskina, Justine, etc. MARIA is not on Kim and Justine's level, and neither is Myskina on most days! This is women's tennis, there is little depth in the field. Please, step outside of your fanaticism and think critically. I am not a Kim or JHH fan, and I have nothing against Sharapova, so I am speaking without bias.
I am not attempting to rewrite history, the question was asked, and I gave my opinion.
