... all six greatest tennis finals (AO2006 final, RG2006 final, Wimbley2006 final, USO2006 final, FED CUP 2006 final & YEC2006 final) !!!!!!


:bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

:bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:



Actualy, Martina Navratilova in 1986 playing at all GS1986 and FedCup1986 and YEC1986 finals - but fact is that in 1986 Australian Open GS tournament is canceled, so only Justine Henin-Hardenne in 2006 reach all six greatest finals in same season!!!

She actualy won they both Fed Cup singles matches in final, and retire in AO final - so... that means she realy lose so far only two matches (of 6 her matches) before tommorow's last seasons final :devil: :devil: :devil: .

now that is outstanding 4 justine :yeah: just proves what a champion she is in the women's game today & i'm sure that she will win a few more grand slams 2 her name in the future. i praise her :bowdown:

imagine if she reached all 4 slam finals, the YEC final, the fed cup final & the olympic final in 2008. i no that's too realistic but hey u neva no.

You do know you just pretty much called Justine a pussy. :wavey:
She's weak for not being able to finish something she could have.

Congratulating that kind of behavior doesn't particularly bode well either.

Weren't you the one who kept on nagging about Justine 'inventing' an injury so that she could have a valuable excuse to not play YEC, since she simply can't handle the top-8 on such short notice? :wavey:

Fantastic acheivement. One has to get to the finals before they can win all of them it, and no one since Nav has been able to. But Juju has. Amazing...and in her transition yr no less with multiple injuries. Amazing..nothing short of amazing.

Its truly amazing at the depths of which people will go to diminish the accomplishments of the best player on tour this year...Justine Henin-Hardenne.

I recall back in January when people were saying "Justine will never win another Grand Slam title, much less make it to another final." Well, guess what. Justine ended the year at #1.

Justine is the toughest competitor in the WTA. No one has the will or the game to excel like Justine.

You should better appreciate what you are watching...one of the games greatest of this generation putting her stamp on history. Even though it is at the expense of your favs.

I agree, it's just so laughable that she has ONLY won 1 so far. Isn't it just funny? I mean SO MANY players have done better then her. Isn't it so much greater to reach just 1 big final and win it? Isn't losing in SFs, QFs, and 4th rounds simply better then reach the final and THEN lose it?

After all at worst Justine can say that she was the 2nd best player in the world this year, what a loser! :)

some people (from whom i wouldn't have expected it some months ago) show their true colours once again.
Quite sad and it's clear they fell intimidated. they should be. Justine is simply amazing. So amazing thatit hurts.

But has 5 in total and a GOLD medal (not a silver one) and has been at no. 1 for 45 weeks the first time and was the first player to get to 7000 points and has won a Fed Cup final etc, etc all at a younger age than Amelie Mauresmo.
Has a better win-loss record than Amelie, has not been bageled yet this year, but Amelie has :o
Mauresmo - 27 years old and 2 GS
JHH - 24 years old 5 GS

No way do I wanna "hate" on Justine... would have been the same if it was Serena or Venus.. for me winning is the name of the game. finishing second all the time, kinda sucks.

It's pretty rare for a player to reach all of the major finals in an entire CAREER. Many great champions have not even approached it. So to do it in one year, especially when you're the size of a pistachio nut playing against a bunch of Brazil nuts, is truly amazing. :worship:

No, it wasn't directed at you.
But seriously, yes she lost more then won, but would it be so much better if she lost to Jankovic? Then she wouldn't be this close, so it's better?
Or even better - lose in the 4th, that would have given her LOTS of confidence.
Yes, winning is the name of the game, but why losing in the 4th is better then losing in the final? And Venus lost how many times in a row (in slam finals that is)?
Obviously Justine would have loved to win more, didn't happen, should she retire now? Or better - like many are suggesting here - she should be ashamed of that!

Nothing to be ashamed of...I see your point. Reaching all the finals is already an achievement...I guess not losing at all would be even greater?

True about Venus, but didn't notice that she was getting less and less happy for Serena after each loss? That's telling..

Not a Justine fan but there's no denying it certinly is a great record - and winning the YEC and Wimbledon as well.

I don't count the Fed Cup final though. Se earned Belgium the place in the semi finals. But she didn't earn Belgium their place in the finals. Kim and Flipper did that. Justine didn't play. So really I only look at the 4 GS and the YEC. That's an achievement in itself she can be proud of. To me - it sort of cheapens her achievement a bit to include the Fed Cup final in there.

Edit: Ooops I meant winning RG not Wimbledon

In 1986, there was indeed no Australian Open but there were two YEC's: the first was held in March 1986 and marked the end of the 85-6 season and the second was at the end of the year, like now. Navratilova competed in (and won) both, plus the three grand slam finals (winning two) and the Fed Cup in Prague, winning that one as well.
