Justine could become the greatest player of this decade...

The player ahead of her is Serena. But looks like she won't be returning to tennis. I don't know if she's got the motivation anymore.

If Justine gets a Wimbledon and another slam. That's it.

Justine has shown the commitment to keep improving herself and to get on with it. I think she's got what it takes.

I can see Martina winning slams too but I don't think she'll dominate again.

So Justine is the future.

Eh Vee and Hingis are still above her, plus she has got a way to go, vee got to 4 straight slam finals something henin never achieved so far as did hingis so right now she is the 4th most accomplished player out there only and if Justine gets Wimbledon and another slam that wont be it Serena would still be considered greater because she won 4 in a row

If her body can hold all the stress and injuries, I agree with you!

1. Serena ( 7 slams and 2 other finals)
2. Martina ( 5 slams and 7 other finals)
3. Venus ( 5 slams and 6 other finals)
4. Justine ( 5 slams and 2 other finals)

that's enought to prove the point but even if you look at other grand slam performances, the other 3 have a lot more QF and SF's

Case closed

Walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

ok so that would eliminate most of Martina's slam

making her third

JHH also has amuch better batting average than Hingis and Venus **. Gosh, to be winning less than 50% of slam finals entered, not too good for one of the greatest ever. Serena's stat is mighty impressive.

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
That.

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.
