none is more impressive "by far". it's really hard to say, both were amazing.

Kim's.
Not by far but it was more impressive. She beat both Williamses and WON in the final.

Kim. She had a baby. Her retirement lasted longer, she has beaten both williams to win the US Open

Kim no question she destroyed them all and wrote history by winning a slam directly in her third tournament.

Henin did well but failed to write history.

It's difficult to say at this point as Kim has been "back" for longer.

If you compare their performances in their first two tournaments (which is how many Justine has played so far), Justine's 2/2 finals including AO > Kim's QF and 3R.

Are you dumb or something ? I mean no offense but the subject is about what they achieved and who they defeated SINCE they came back not two years ago

Anyway Kim all the way , she impressed me in her first matches while Justine did not .

The good old Williams sisters...still the measuring sticks of the WTA Tour 15 years later and counting...

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

Re: Whose return is more impressive by far?Kim's or Justine's?

Very hard to say because Justine was actually injured when she retired, she even got a knee surgery.

Regarding this surgery, I think Justine's comeback is more impressive than Kim's but it is too early to conclude on this, especially that she has only lost to Serena and Kim (the two most in form players at AO and Brisbane).

Also, Kim has won the US Open, but had to face Wozniacki (who never reached a Slam final before) not Serena (who is 12-3 in Slam finals enough said) who didn't even finish her SF match against Kim.

That's why I think Kim has more achieved than Justine but Justine really amazed me, I really thought she was gonna be crushed in final. Just my two cents of course, and I am biased too.

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

They both have a lot to be proud of, but I give the nod to Kim. Winning the USO was just

Errr...are you dumb or something? I mean no offense, but the threadstarter didn't make it clear at all if (s)he is talking about the return of serve or about a comeback.
