Every year when TWAT starts, all these trolls restart trolling in GM in order to win in that stupid event. Mods should take a note of how that tournament increases trolling ( by giving positive feedback for disrupting the forum)and shut it down for good.

It's not trolling, it's a legitimate discussion.

Re: Would Henin have won Wimbledon if she hadn't broken her arm?

I think it is impossible to say for sure. However, if she had maintained the form of the Petrova match and the first set of the Clijsters match, I think she would have got to the final. I don't think she would have beaten Serena in the final, though maybe she could have become the only player to take a set off her.

Who lost to Pironkova? yeah, sure. As for the actual question, I doubt she could've have won the whole thing. I don't have any doubt that she would have got to the final, where she in all likelihood would have been beaten by Serena.

Daniela Hantuchova & Juan Martín del Potro

Simon & Groth & Čilić & Goerges & Gasquet & Kirilenko & Djokovic & Sharapova

Justine Henin & Marat Safin

You and Trollby are really trying hard....


And no, she wouldnt

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

I gave my opinion on Serena, I bothered to write a huge block of text And I even answered some people in that thread, so you can't say I am trolling. I was really serious here.

Tbh I think she would have reached the final for sure : she was destroying a clueless Kim Clijsters on her least favourite surface (for Kimmie)... then Zvonareva who never won a set against Justine and wasn't especially stellar against Kimmie

Then Pironkova Justine would have beaten her in three sets.

Then Serena-Justine final... Anything could have happened, I really think Sarin would have lost her first set of the tournament, at least.

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

Nope. Justine hasn't won a slam with Serena in the draw in nearly three years.

I am afraid no one could have beaten Serena, the way she played this year.

She retired in 2008, so this "nearly three years" is pointless especially that Justine beat Serena three times in a row in Slams in 2007 Old good times...

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine
