1. Court Sense:
On non-clay courts, there was a time where Justine seems to always be surprised by the speed of the ball and found herself always rushed.
No more. She anticipates better and tends to guess right where the opponents will hit the ball
2. Serve Consistency and Speed:
She has developed high speed serve she can sustain throughout the match
3. More Variety Of Shots
Because of 1, she has time to develop or perfect a variety of shot depending on the position she found herself in
4 Defense & Switching From Defense To Offense
By virtue of 1, because she rarely found herself totally out of a point she can hit defensive shot and surprise the opponent, who, still shocked/annoyed that the ball came back, will self-destruct and send a weak reply which Henin will punish.
5 Ground Strokes
Not only has she added jerking the opponent from side to site, she can now hold the ball until the opponent commits to one side and she will go the other
