Re: Peak Henin vs. Peak Capriati

Can we dispense with the "Handin" comments please? It was a decade ago guys, she's retired since then. And I don't even like her.

Henin would win. Capriati hit the ball big and all, but her finishing shots weren't all that great. If she couldn't put the ball away after 3 or 4 shots she's just rely on depth, and she'd stop hitting through her forehand and just hit a reverse-follow-through shot back deep. Henin's slicing and dicing would drive her mad, and Henin was great at turning offense to defense, which she'd do if Capriati failed to finish off the point. Capriati was an amazing counter-attacker herself, but Henin was great at net, and she'd dull some of Capriati's defenses by coming forward. They're both great returners, so there'd be a lot of service breaks. It'd probably be close, but I say the Belgian comes through.
