Kim no question she destroyed them all and wrote history by winning a slam directly in her third tournament.

Henin did well but failed to write history.

It's difficult to say at this point as Kim has been "back" for longer.

If you compare their performances in their first two tournaments (which is how many Justine has played so far), Justine's 2/2 finals including AO > Kim's QF and 3R.

Very hard to say because Justine was actually injured when she retired, she even got a knee surgery.

Regarding this surgery, I think Justine's comeback is more impressive than Kim's but it is too early to conclude on this, especially that she has only lost to Serena and Kim (the two most in form players at AO and Brisbane).

Also, Kim has won the US Open, but had to face Wozniacki (who never reached a Slam final before) not Serena (who is 12-3 in Slam finals :tape: enough said) who didn't even finish her SF match against Kim.

That's why I think Kim has more achieved than Justine but Justine really amazed me, I really thought she was gonna be crushed in final. ;) Just my two cents of course, and I am biased too. :lol:

Kim by far:D
Having a baby doesn't compare to anything else, plus she was away for 1 more year than Justine (almost twice longer) and she got the job done at the US Open, playing awesome all the way to the title AND beating both Williams sisters (GOD stop it with Serena not playing till the end, the ONLY thing we know is that Kim was outplaying Serena that day and nobody knows how that match point would have turned out. What we also know is that Serena outplayed Justine in that third set of the AO final, end of story):D!!

I am biased too, but I would say it is too close to call. True, Kim did win the USO but Serena played nowhere nearly as well in that semi as she did in the AO final. Serena was in a funk when the match started, with things getting worse as the match wore on. Venus, this year, has been very erratic. In the finals she played a rookie, who played well but who has nowhere near the power of Kim or Serena. Since she has been back Justine has defeated: Petrova-who crushed Kim-twice, Lena D, an on fire Wickemeyer and Klybenova.
Time will tell!

Feb 1st, 2010, 12:56 PM
:confused:Kim has had a baby..

Having a baby is a natural function of the female body. Margreat Court said that after giving birth, she felt stronger because she had a rest from tennis, which was much more difficult. Justine had a knee operation, plus laser surgery on both eyes. She was exhausted from tennis, so the rest was good for her too. Also, she is still quite a bit smaller that most of the top players, so has to work harder to generate power. Her game is more diverse than Kim's, plus she has made changes which have not all come together yet, especially the serve which contributed to her loss. And then, there was SERENA, at her very near best!!

Kim destroyed Serena's 2nd serve in USO. Justine was clueless about it.

Miccor
Feb 1st, 2010, 03:04 PM
I have to say that the comeback from Kim Clijsters is more impressive. The people who say that Justine had a 2/2 on the finals in her second carreer forget that the tournament in Brisbane wasn't such a great tournament, as the tournaments Clijsters played in her warming-up for the US Open. Clijsters beat Kuznetsova and lost to Jankovic and Safina, not a shame... At the USO she beat the Williams-sisters and Wozniacki, three top-ten players. Justine only beat one in the AO and no-one in Brisbane. So, that's for me one of the reasons that Clijsters has had the more impressive comeback, and I didn't mention all the arguements that already have been mentioned (she became mother and had a longer break...)

Justine wasn't "clueless" about Serena's serve. She tried to attack it as early as possible, and sometimes it worked, often it didn't.

Feb 1st, 2010, 03:33 PM
Kim by a mile. She took longer time off, had a baby, beat both Williams sisters at the US Open en route to winning the US Open, and beat Justine already.

This is such an obvious answer. I think the OP tryin to start somethin.

Feb 1st, 2010, 03:55 PM
For sure Kim since she won a GS and having had a baby during her break sealed the deal lol
But I gotta say I firmly believe Justine did herself proud considering I think she had a tougher draw compared to Kim's 09 USO draw, and had she won this final I would have put her more impressive then Kim's:
Justine: Dementieva, Kleybanova, Wickmayer, Petrova, and SERENA in the final of her favorite GS (I was amazed she had enough energy left for the final, not to mention I feel she would fare better had it been at the French or even the US open compared to the AO)
Im not saying Kim's draw was easy (she had to face both Williams) but considering Serena was clearly rattled in her match, and apart from the Williams' her only tough opponents were Li Na and Marion Bartoli, and then of course having Wozniacki in the final was just the icing on the cake.

AcesHigh
Feb 1st, 2010, 04:34 PM
Kim.. but remember, AO was Justine's second tournament back and I believe only her third week coming back from retirement. What she did was outstanding.. especially while retooling her game and still figuring it out.

No, Justine read Serena's first serve much better than Kim did, and I am sure Justine will use another tactics on Serena's second serve, so next time, she might be very impressive on ROS.

Justine had 16 breakpoints, and still she missed "easy" second ball returns :tape: I don't think Kim had as much bp as Justine did, and Serena served much better in the final than at New-York (65 aces during the whole tournament I think, 17 against Vika and Stosur, 12 against Justine... enough said).

Feb 1st, 2010, 05:10 PM
Interesting :

Kim Clijsters : More consistent return, though it's not always a good return
Justine Henin : Less consistent, though she can hit very deep and powerful returns

When talking about the comebacks, it's hard to say, Kim won a tournament, but Justine reached 2 straight finals. Though Kim's return started at bigger tournaments. I'll pick Kim, for the moment. Though I'll look back at it, at the end of the year ^^

Ridiculous. Having a baby gets you totally out of shape, you need TONS of work to get back to the shape you were, and some people aren't even able to do so. Plus you have new responsibilities and a lot of new tasks; you can't think only about tennis, you simply have other priorities. Henin didn't have to go through that, and she had all the time she needed to heal those injuries.

And to the people who talk about the draw, come on LOL. Wickmayer was never going to beat Justine, Petrova is a total headcase who has no belief against Henin (who played beyond atrocious in that match), and she got Jie Zheng in the semis, enough said. I'm not saying Kim had a way tougher draw, both players had to beat the players they had in front of them. But beating both Williams sisters in their home country is a very rare feat; Henin could only do it at her peak in 2007. And finally, Serena wasn't 100% at all in the AO final, she was all bandaged and can move much better than she did at her very best. But I agree she didn't play well against Kim despite being 100% okay physically.

I simply believe a baby doesn't get out of your body like an apple from a tree. I don't think I'm wrong here, and I don't see many moms playing top-level tennis or top-level athletes.

BTW don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Henin had an easy time getting back, she had to put on loads of work as well. I just don't understand people who think getting back to shape after having a baby is no big deal, or even easier than coming from an injury.

Farrow
Feb 1st, 2010, 07:09 PM
Kim.

On her return she played 2 Premier 5 events which were far more difficult than Justine's International at Brisbane. Kim also had a more difficult draw at the USO than Justine did in Melbourne.

But the most important thing to me is their level of play. Clijsters came back playing as good as, if not better than she was playing when she "retired". Henin isn't at the level she was when she retired.

Kim's...but there may have been underlying reasons why. I mean Kim came back last quarter of the year. Most of the field had tired legs and were not mentally fresh, whereas she was. I was taken w/how many scrubs pushed Justine, have a feeling they will be beating her by hard court season.

Could have been remembered as the shortest match in 2010, but Justine helped Kim by erasing that. :yeah:

Although, it should be noted that Justine made 2 finals in the first 2 tourneys she came back. Maybe she can emulate Kim and win the 3rd. :help:

Feb 2nd, 2010, 12:13 AM
Kim has won a grand slam, and she did so having been off the tour longer, along with giving birth to a child...Definitely a more impressive return, although Justine's has been very impressive as well. Neither have missed a beat!

Feb 2nd, 2010, 12:27 AM
First of All, It should have been "comeback" not "return"...
I hate the OP i got misled as well... :devil:

Second of All, WTF does having a baby makes a player more impressive than the other?
True, that it is trivial since not many are mother GS winners other than that, it doesn't make it any impressive by all means!

But to answer the OP's question, it's close and but I value results more than the process of getting there, so I will go with Kim.

In The Zone
Feb 2nd, 2010, 12:30 AM

Justine's pales in comparison.

And?
Slam is just two weeks and i don't think during all that time Kim was the one waking up in the wee hours of the evening feeding her baby or making her go back to sleep... :rolleyes:

In fact history tells, that though not so many top athletes are coming back after having a baby, those who actually come back have better initial results than when they went out before they have a baby. It is actually attributed to "added inspiration" but its just all too "trivial".

So once again, having a baby has nothing to do with quality or the "impressiveness" factor, And once again by result in itself, Kim did better!

:tape: Me biased? Oh the irony...

That chick Dementieva was in great form going into the AO, Wickmayer too was on a hot streak and Petrova just beat the likes of Clijsters and Kuznetsova back to back. You think if she had drawn former world number ones Ivanovic, Jankovic, Safina and Sharapova the draw would have been tougher?

So far, Clijsters US Open run is hard to beat. On the other hand, Kim had a little more time to get back into full gear, plus her game 'clicked' more easily (Henin changed hers, for better or worse, and will need more time to adapt). Both were extremely impressive.

I think I'll go with Clijsters, but I wouldn't be surprised if Justine's comeback lasts longer/will be more successful in the end.

After the us open peeps were acting like beating the Williams was something a child could do in their sleep, suddenly it's the benchmark for greatness! :confused:

anyway seems to me Justine played tougher matches and beat better opponents in her runs. The only quality matches & opponents Kim beat on her run to the final if i can recall were Venus* (injured), Serena* (match didn't finish), Bartoli and Li Na* (played pointlessly). And of course she had some bad losses (safina, petrova, schnyder etc).
