I love Venus, but Justine has slams at both the US Open and Australian Open.

Re: Who is better on hardcourt:Venus or Justine?

resumes? Justine
Who was better on hardcourts at their peak? Venus probably would have demolished Henin.

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.

We need stats to back up these threads. Venus has a better HC resume right?

Unfortunately.. no.

Re: Who is better on hardcourt:Venus or Justine?

I don't think it is as black and white to say Justine has an AO title so therefore she is better.

2004? No Serena and Vee's first tournament back from injury after 7 months off. No, that is not an asterisk for Justine's win but it is just a valid thing to say.

Venus has only lost in slam finals to Serena (other than her rookie debut versus Hingis). Whereas Justine has lost to a number of persons.

Like Aces said, Venus' 2000-2002 form would have beaten Justine from 2007 in 2.

Re: Who is better on hardcourt:Venus or Justine?

This is a tough one. Yes Justine has one more hard court major, but Venus leads the head to head and at her best would beat Henin pretty convincingly. So actually it's not a tough one

Re: Who is better on hardcourt:Venus or Justine?

Justine with the better record at hc slams but Venus at her peak would've routined Justine in straight sets on US hc. In Australia I could imagine Justine pulling through while Venus pretends she's playing Pironkova and implodes.
