Justine Henin has won her last three Slams without dropping a set!!!

I've just noticed that Justine has won her last three Slams without dropping a set. Roland Garros 2006, Roland Garros 2007 and US Open 2007. Pretty impressive.

Go Brazilian girls!

It means that when she's playing her best no one can beat her.

Venus: US Open Champ (2000, 2001) Wimbledon Champ (2000, 2001, 2005, 2007)

Re: Justine Henin has won her last three Slams without dropping a set!!!

so, when Justine loses a set, it's garanted she won't win the Slam...


this shows, she's very good too in hard court...not just in clay.

Re: Justine Henin has won her last three Slams without dropping a set!!!

Venus challenged Henin more than anyone, taking 10 games off the champion. To be honest, of the Henin matches I've seen in these three Grandslams, her encounter with Venus was the only one in which she looked vulnerable. In the other matches, the outcome was pretty much certain from the start of the match.

She only lost 32 games this US Open, and has won 24 consecutive sets since Wimbledon...

Re: Justine Henin has won her last three Slams without dropping a set!!!

That's impressive. But I wouldn't mind her winning a GS with losing some set I'd like to see her dig deep and be under a little more pressure and play well in tight situations.

During matches like the RG 07 final there's never a doubt who'll win it...

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

Re: Justine Henin has won her last three Slams without dropping a set!!!

yeah really. Not to take anything away from her but before this, she could only win in Paris. I'm sure she would not mind dropping a few sets there if Serena and Venus would get out of her way at Wimby so she can finally win it, and probably Mauresmo too.

Serena and Markus together forever

I thought Serena was defeated at Wimby and also that Bartoli was the one defeating Justine.

L'important, c'est la rose...

Trust me. Bartoli did not defeat Henin by herself. Fear of Venus helped. A LOT.

I love venus and serena but I would give the honor of Pierce Brosnan that lit the fire that was in Bartoli's belly. Doesn't matter..Henin got beaten that day..
