Re: Peak Henin vs peak Venus
Since when is 2003 AO SF considered closest to their primes?? Henin had not even won her 1st Slam. 2007 USO SF (in before mentions of anemia, Sjogren's etc) is way closer. Both had won Slams that year, in fact Venus at 2007 W was scary good in her last matches, and was considered a huge threat at the USO as well the way she was playing.
I guess people like to think that their faves at their peak would not be bothered by ANYTHING, including good varied play, strong offense and creative defense, but just swat away winner after winner in 6-0, 6-0 double-golden-set routs.
Sorry people, there is just 1 peak Pierce.
