Justine Henin will always be #3 behind peak Williams Sisters in my opinion. I did LOVE Justine's game she was very feisty on the court and a respected player, but the Williams Sisters changed the game with their level of play and she had to rise to the level that THEY set.
That beast just barely beat Hingis in two grand slam matches, in two fast courts, like Wimbledon and Usopen.
Serena in fact cleared the path for others and remarked how flawed Venus tecnique is on her forehand, and many others followed.
