After Justine lost her number one position to Maria due to not playing in Australia, she stayed with 57 weeks on top, the exact same number of Serena :eek:

So, it made me wonder, who do you think will have more weeks when they both have retired? :wavey:

It may be easier for Henin to return to the no. 1 spot in the short run. But if Serena could really get there, she'll stay there for a while.

That's a great question, since both of them make it harder for themselves by playing a limited number of tournaments. And both are easily injured.

Maybe neither one of them will reach that number again because of those two issues, but forced to pick, I'd say Serena. I feel like Justine's overworked little body will give out before Serena's bigger frame will.

Theres no doubt in my mind Serena is the superior player but Justine is going to win this battle simply b/c shes going to play alot longer than Serena is. I could see Justine being another Chris Evert and retiring at 34.

Justine for sure. I honestly would be shocked to see Serena get back to number 1 unless she wins two slams and gets to at least the semis in the other two or has really good results in non grand slam tournaments. I think Serena will win many more slams but I just dont think she is going to play enough to be a consistent number 1.

you know thats what she says but I think Justine wants to be known as the best ever and if that means staying ont he tour longer I think she would do it. I could be wrong though and she retires next year haha but I think she really wants to be known for all time.

it's definitely Justine, Serena doesn't play enough to be or stay at #1, but being #1 for a longer period doesn't justify being better.

I think if Justine wins Wimbledon, that will only make her closer to retirement. She's not going to be going for double digits in slam wins or have the most weeks in #1. The most important thing for her is what she does in the time period that she plays tennis.

Quite frankly, I thought Justine showed a lot of enjoyment in tennis in playing the YEC in Madrid last year. She was happy, as happy as Serena Williams was playing in Melbourne this year. You want to see athletes play their sport like that, happy and enjoying the battles.

Justine because she will win more smaller tournaments and will probably win at least 1 slam each year for the next few years.
Unless Serena wins two slams and wins other tournaments, I can't see it. She plays too few tournaments to stay #1. I think this year we will have a slamless #1 or a case where the #1 player is not necessarily the best(like our current #1)

Not sure where Serena's sudden comeback will lead her (as high as #1?), so I'd pick the safest choice imo, Justine Henin.

Exactly. I definitely see Serena winning more slams, but I don't know if she'll play enough year-in and year-out to have another lengthy stay at No. 1.

Who knows. But I always say, when in doubt choose Serena! :lol:

If Serena plays a full schedule for the next couple of years then she'll do it.
