Who has had the better career - Hingis or Henin-Hardenne?

Who has had the better career - Marina Hingis or Justine Henin-Hardenne. Both have won 5 Grand Slams but Hingis has reached 12 finals compared to Justine's 9. Martina has won 42 career titles compared to Justine's 29. Both have won three of one Grand Slam - Hingis has won Australian Open three times and Henin-Hardenne has won Roland Garros three times. Both have one Grand Slam which has eluded them from a career Grand Slam - Hingis at Roland Garros and Henin-Hardenne at Wimbledon. Both players have done pretty poor in a particular Grand Slam except for the times which they won the title once - Hingis has lost in the first round of Wimbledon twice, Henin-Hardenne has only ben past the 4th Round of the US Open twice. Hingis has been World No.1 for 209 weeks compared to Justine's reign at the top for 46 weeks.

So who has had the better career? I would definitely say Hingis. Just look at the career titles, Grand Slam finals and period at World No.1.

Hingis by far. She surpasses Henin in weeks at #1, singles titles, doubles titles, GS doubles titles, career winning %. Hingis won Wimbledon, Henin the French. The only advantage Henin has is winning the Olympics gold.

Hingis atm, but she is past her heyday IMO. Justine I think can last several more years and I'm sure has a few more GSs in her.

For now it's Hingis.

In a year? Possibly Henin-Hardenne.

Re: Who has had the better career - Hingis or Henin-Hardenne?

Martina will be remembered for her doubles prowess, as well as singles. Martina by a fair bit, but I think that might change if HH won more slams. But that said, they've both played for roughly the same amount of time and Martina has achieved more.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.

Re: Who has had the better career - Hingis or Henin-Hardenne?

I love Henin-Hardenne but its obvious that Martina had a better career as of now. At the end, when both of them retire though, I think that Henin-Hardenne will have the better career but NOW Martina does I think.

Venus. Sloane. Carla. Vera

Re: Who has had the better career - Hingis or Henin-Hardenne?

Justine has no doubles career...Martina is one of best doubles player this side of Navratilova....she Venus and Serena are the only current players to have a doubles career slam (she won the Doubles GS in 1998). Not to mention she and Lindsay are the only active players to have been #1 in singles and doubles (not to mention Martina acheived both at the SAME TIME )

Even if Justine won 3 more slams and was #1 for 150 weeks, Martina wouldd still stand above because she was a more complete player.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

That can't be counted.

There will be the time, when anyone thinks, mixed has any value.
Please respect a little bit more the reality.
