Henin on Wozniacki :"... we wish that to be No. 1 you have to win Grand Slams"



Q. Do you sympathize at all with Wozniacki and maybe Safina coming to the No. 1 ranking without a Grand Slam and all the questions that they face?

JUSTINE HENIN: It's not that easy. Of course we wish that to be No. 1 you have to win Grand Slams. I think ‑ as I was thinking about that in the last few days ‑ if I have to remember something, it wasn't really that I was the best player in the world, but it's all the Grand Slams I won. That's what gives really the emotions.

So of course they have been very consistent, not injured, so they could play. Wozniacki is still very young. Safina has been in trouble. Jankovic I think played a lot and also has been tired from that at a certain time of her career.

But I wish them to win Grand Slams because they will feel the difference. When I became No. 1, I was so happy because it was in 2003. I did win the French, US Open that year, and I think it was big accomplishment, the dream of a little girl to be the best in the world.

But the feelings you get at the second you win a Grand Slam, yeah, winning a Grand Slam, it's seven matches, two weeks, it's the hardest, I think. Serena proved that many times as she, you know, didn't play a lot, but in the big moments she was there. And I think it's the most important

I think it puts into perspective some of the comments that Wozniacki made about being #1 without a Slam.

Re: Henin on Wozniacki :To be World #1 you should win a Slam.

LOL @ Justine talking about Serena although she is not even here nor mentioned by the journalist.
Juju&Sarin = BFFs.

Anyway, she is spot on, nothing really new here I am sure Wozniacki agrees. At least Henin didn't badmouth Wozniacki, and said she was still very young.

And she knows what she is talking about, she misses that special feeling... she regrets not to have enjoyed it more in the past, now she doesn't win Slams as often as she used to do.

There isn't anything controversial in what Justine is saying. Despite the OP's attempt with his 'pick out the words and put them back in order as I want to' head line.

Craving for attention much?

The Serena comment seems to be the main motivation for the thread

I blame media for the slow demise of these slamless No. 1's.

They realise this particular topic has a detrimental effect on these young women's... and Jankovic's... psyche, but they refuse to back away from the topic.

I wish players would just shut down the issue on the journalists.

Did I say anything about it being controversial or hateful anywhere?

As far as I know 'General Messages' is for any interesting player-related news aimed towards more than just one particular fanbase.

Cold Cold Heart

I've tried so hard my dear to show
That you're my every dream
Yet you're afraid each thing I do
Is just some evil scheme

A memory from your lonesome past
Keeps us so far apart
Why can't I free your doubtful mind
And melt your cold cold heart
Justine
