JHH is a slow starter (and has rarely if ever played a full season, or even close to it), so she could make some more noise in the future if she playes more and remains healthy. It's hard to believe, but Serena is just ~ 1yr older than Henin. We'll see what these two have to offer in the future.
Serena has time to come back and win more slams (she has proven she just needs a year and a half to win 4.lol)
** Because she lost 5 of these to Serena (2 Wimby's, one USO, one FO, one AO). I am not sure if this is for the better or worse.
That final winning % means nothing. She's played about 500 matches
in her career. Over a hundred more than Serena and a few less than
Venus. That, and the fact that she played in fewer finals than the
others tell us that she wasn't good enough to make it to more finals.
And I'm sure Venus, Serena, And Hingis were responsible for some of
Also Venus and Serena have never ever played a full season. For a
while they would even Alternate events so they wouldn't have to
play each other.
And while Venus lost 5 finals to Serena, No one else, including Henin
could beat her. Henin played in most of those slams too.
