By winning the French, Justine would be the only player of this generation to win a Grand Slam in four consecutive years, and would tie Venus and Hingis with Grand Slam title #5.

It will be her second GS final this year!

Allez to Justine on clay!!!!

well many claim that the thing that separates Henin-Hardenne from Hingis or Venus in the All-Time greats list is that she hasn't been able to defend one of her majors.

Now she has a very good chance to be right up there with the two mentioned above. She's certainly the best Belgian tennis player ever.

...about whether she won a slam for years in a row? Because I'm pretty sure all she needs to do is win a slam for four years in a row for us to talk about it

Let me rephrase it... when she wins four, five or six slams legitimately, then we can talků. better?

Why does she need to hold all four GS titles to tie Martina H & Venus records of 5 slams?

No one is comparing her with Steffi or Martina N here!

Venus 3W+2USO still beat the shit out of Hingis 3AO+W+USO or JHH 2(3)RG+AO+USO.

Venus 3W+2USO still beat the shit out of Hingis 3AO+W+USO or JHH 2(3)RG+AO+USO.

Why is that?

I would prefer Hingis's and Henin-Hardenne's resumes over Venus's. Vee hasn't shown Grand Slam form on all surfaces, unlike the other two.

No she doesn't. Hingis has won 3 out of the 4 slams. Henin also. Venus has only 2 out of the 4 slams. Where are Venus' Australian and French Open trophies?

It's better to be missing one than two.

You probably do not understand what Wimbledon is. 3 Wimbledons is just phenomenal, just grand..

We're living in the 2000's. It's just any other slam like Oz, French or US. If this was the early 20th century I'd be more willing to agree with you.

Reaching the FO final and being two games away from winning the AO aren't "Grand Slam form?"

This is a remarkable achievement for Justine, but we all know she's the clay queen. I'd be more impressed if she repeated at one of the other slams.

Believe in what you want to believe. But if you happen to meet a pro player, ask her or him whether winning Wimbledon and winning Australian Open sound as same kind of thing to them or would they have a certain preference..

venus has only proven that she's a fast court specialist :shrug: henin-hardenne and hingis have won slams on both fast and slow surfaces...

and wimbledon may have the most tradition on one hand, but on the other hand, its played on the least relevant surface of the modern game

...moving on, i really hope jhh beats kuzy. she is definitely the best clay-courter since, hmmm, i dunno. graf? seles? although i'm betting that she eventually eclipses both of them and becomes the best clay-courter since evert :eek:

This all is just a junk for tennis freaks. There is only one tennis tournament that EVERYONE who knows what tennis is knows. And that's Wimbledon. The pinnacle of the sport. The Championships. Fast, slow, soft, hard..leave it to yourself..

its all perspective on greatest slams

i.e someone that is a clay court specialist would regard Roland Garros as the holy grail
