Re: Peak Henin vs peak Venus
It's curious becuase that's a match that never happened on wta. Most of their matches were when Venus was a dominant force and Henin was simply a rising star. And the last one was Henin in one of her best moments but Venus far from her peak.
That would be a interesting match for sure, not only for the quality of the players but for the contrast of styles too
Venus was NOT far from her peak in the 07 USO semi final match. Venus won Wimbledon that year and was playing very well at the USO. True, Venus since 04 could beat anyone on a given day, then lose to a lesser players the next day. Still there is little doubt that Venus would have the edge on grass, Justine on clay. Slow hard, slight edge to Justine, fast hard slight edge to Venus.
