Peak Henin vs. Peak Venus...question answered

Venus was at her best in the first set, but it wasn't good enough to beat the diminuitive Belgian...

No more pointless Peak vs. Peak on these two...the first set answers the question!

I disagree. No questions have been answered. I hold my opinion and I am sure everyone else does too.

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2

Re: Peak Henin vs. Peak Venus...question answered

You could say Venus wasnt the Venus from previous rounds but still both had medical time outs in the match and this was Venus' toughest opponent yet so I think right now Justine is the true no.1 in the world as her ranking confirms. I think she deserves all the best after all she's been through in her life and hopefully she'll win the final!!!!!! My deepest respect for Justine (and Venus as well)

It's rare now to see them play at their peak.

Venus peak was a while ago.

Re: Peak Henin vs. Peak Venus...question answered

are u kidding...anyone who watched could clearly see venus was that step slow to the ball...that jankovic match clearly took alot out of her..and it was still 7-6 6-4...if venus was not tired or dizzy...she could have easily won by the way justine played today..not her best either..she gets nervous way to easily...Peak Venus will still beat Peak Henin...and u can not prove that today becuz neither venus NOR JUSTINE played at peak today

without question both players were at their very best in the first set, besides maybe the first where Venus was broken...

Venus wasn't at her best in the second i will conceed, but the quality of the first set showed both of them playing at the top of their level!

like I said, question answered...Peak Henin edges Peak Venus, in a set which perfectly outlines this fact!

No it doesn't! Venus didn't serve particularly well throughout the match....Like I said a peak venus (say around 2000/1) will clearly beat henin! Venus is a better player than henin but henin is just playing better at the moment

Re: Peak Henin vs. Peak Venus...question answered

Justine was not at her peak today, serving at 47% and all those UFE's. Venus was not at her peak either. Neither was at their peak. In fact they were pretty much at the same level throughout the entire match.


But who cares now that Juju won

Um Henin did beat peak Venus in March, 2001, which is IN THE MIDDLE OF the two year period that Venus won 4 slams

what match were u watching. venus was awful in the first set. this is not peak venus. peak venus could get a 1st serve in and always get a big serve on crucial points. she also made the most of her opportunities. venus these days needs about 5bps per game to break. she had to be about 4/60000 in her match against sharapova. im not saying peak justine wouldnt beat peak venus but this was not peak venus. maybe you should watch some tapes from 2000-2003. peak venus could go through strings of points especially when down without barely missing a shot no matter what the surface. im still amazed with what she did to clijsters in the wimbledon 03 sf or the us 2000 final against hingis.

Re: Peak Henin vs. Peak Venus...question answered

nonsense! this whole thread. One match is NOT ENOUGH to prove Justine is better at her peak... pleaassse

all this peaknonsens.

they're both great and today Justine won, is it so difficult to state the facts without getting too wild about sth?

I'm sorry, I'm just really unhappy right now!
