in 2000, 2001, 2002 venus and serena raised the bar in womens tennis! they were fitter, faster, hit harder and trained more than anyone before! in my opinion this is the reason henins is as good as she is! she looked at the william sisters and thought i have to be as fit and prepared as i possibley can! i have to hit harder, move faster and get everything i can out of myself! 5 years later we see the player henin strived to be and its no suprise she is now beating serena and maybe venus! she is the most prepared and condition athlete in womens sport for me! now venus and serena are back, they can see the bar they set all them years ago and need to strive to be back up there! i dont see henin ever letting her standard drop or turning up at a slam anything bar totaly prepared (oz open this year for example!)!
