Henin vs. Serena

When will, or will, Justine pass Serena in terms of 'greatness'. Serena currently has 8 majors; Justine 6. The way it has been going lately, Justine will pass Serena. (Since Justine won her first Slam; Serena has won 3, Justine 6 ... ). Justine has been able to stay healthy easier than Serena, which means she's able to play more, which means she will win more titles. Justine's also been year end #1 more times than Serena, and has an Olympic singles medal, which Serena does not have.

So what will it take? 2 more Slams? Just a Wimbledon title? 3 more Slams?

Re: Henin vs. Serena

to pass Serena she has to win 3 slams.... and really i dont think she "can"... shes gotta win other than the french....which she hasnt done in a few years....As Ive been saying this US OPEN is very important.... If Serena wins I dont think anyone will pass her total... If Henin wins shes still on the hunt... If Venus wins... she'll pass them both in the end in my opinion...

Re: Henin vs. Serena

All Serena has to do is win one slam per year, as has been doing the last couple of seasons and she will be ok.

Serena has to manage to stay fit/healthy, however.

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Re: Henin vs. Serena

I think they have very different kinds of careers. Serena had that period of complete dominance in 2002 which I don't think Justine will ever match. But Justine has had the kind of consistency year on year that Serena won't ever be able to match.

I'm obviously a big Justine fan but I enjoy Serena too. To be honest, I think you're not a real tennis fan if you don't enjoy the sort of performance that Serena can produce.

I really don't think you know anything about being a real tennis fan.
