Peak Kim on hardcourts. Peak Henin everywhere else.

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.

Re: Peak Justine Henin vs Peak Kimberly Clijsters

It's weird because Kim was a huge choker when she played her best tennis (IMO 2003). Still, I pick Clijsters on hardcourt, Henin on clay and grass.

Re: Peak Justine Henin vs Peak Kimberly Clijsters

Went to click Henin but put Kimberly instead.
Peak Kim may have an edge on a USO style hard-court though IMO, but Henin everywhere else.

Question: Did they ever play each other at Wimbledon?

Kim broke Justine's elbow at WImbledon and forced her into retirement. Nuff said. Next

Re: Peak Justine Henin vs Peak Kimberly Clijsters

Peak to peak I pick Henin on every surface. As for hard courts, the tennis Justine played at the 2007 U.S Open, 2003 U.S Open until the final where she was clearly physically hampered by the semifinal epic (although still whipped a crappy Kim as it was), 2006 and 2007 WTA Championships, 2004 Indian Wells, would all 100% guaranteed beat any version of Kim on any hard court.

You idiots, her name is not Kimberly. It's just Kim. It's not short for anything.

Re: Peak Justine Henin vs Peak Kimberly Clijsters

Henin in 2 in every surface

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Henin clearly. Both great players, but Henin was mentally stronger.
