Henin, the undisputed #1

two matches in slams and two wins for justine over serena. one on the slowest surface, the other on the fastest surface. justine seems to be better in every category except the serve. theres no disputing it now, henin is the best female player in the game.

hopefully younger players will emulate justines all court game.

congrats justine.

Re: Henin, the undisputed #1

This match proves nothing. Henin played well, however Serena was clearly not 100%. If she was she would've easily won this match. Did you see how nervous Henin was in the final set? Serena definitely beat herself and it was due in part to her higly noticeable injury.

Re: Henin, the undisputed #1

Justine is no.1 in the rankings. Nuff said really i think.

Quote:
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Two trolls trying to stir up controversy and start another battle between Justine and Serena fans.

Obviously. Anyone who says otherwise is delusional.

Re: Henin, the undisputed #1

I will just add(at great personal risk ) that Justine has been the undisputed number 1 since last year, only relenquishing her title for the brief period of time early this year when she placed greater priority on her marriage than her WTA ranking.

Stupid Belgian.

What was she thinking???

JESUS

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. Ps. 36:1

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Ps. 14:1, 53:1

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov. 1:7

...Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. Job 28:28

Re: Henin, the undisputed #1

I love it when a thread like this comes up as all the Serena fans rush on to it! Simple as Henin is the greatest player in the world she plays nearly every tournament unlike some players who just turn up for the slams! And thoroughly deserves to be Number 1 and win Wimbledon this year! (and this coming from a Sharapova fan!) lol

Re: Henin, the undisputed #1

I'm not convinced because Serena played a horrible match at Roland Garros and she couldn't even hit a backhand here so.. If Justine legitimatley beats Serena I will say it. Haven't seen it yet though.
