Re: Peak Henin vs Peak Azarenka
I agree that of all the top players of the last decade or so Henin is probably the one peak to peak Azarenka would have least chance against, other than maybe peak of peaks Serena of 2002. Against Serena or Venus she could atleast exploit her consistency advantage, and disrupt their rythym with variety, and use the down the centre tactic Capriati used well. Against prime Henin she would be completely useless, there is nothing she could do which would be effective, she cant outhit her, she isnt more consistent than Henin, she cant outmaneuver her, she definitely doesnt play better defense or run better.
Pretty much a moot point as she would go 0-15 vs all of them, or maybe 1-14 or 2-13 vs peak Venus with the occasional win over Venus on a slow hard court when Venus had an off day, which was prone to from time to time on slower courts even in her peak periods (on clay it wouldnt matter since Azarenka is too useless there to ever beat peak Venus).
