Re: Peak Henin vs peak Venus

Venus has been one of the main victims of the continual slowing of courts in tennis. Even though her 2003 Australian Open form would probably beat Peak Henin I give Henin the advantage on slow hard. She would have time to retrieve Venus' flat strokes and pressure the Venus FH until it breaks down.

Venus comfortably on grass and Henin comfortably on clay, a no-brainer.

Peak Venus was scary good on fast hard courts. The match against Hingis in Munich shows how overpowering Venus's flat strokes are on a fast surface. Justine was very good on fast hard too, but she would simply be overpowered by peak Venus on this surface.
