BLAH!

I wanna know why everyone has such a problem with her? Or rather not with her, but with her ranking? some people claim she shouldn't be top 5? top 10 even? I wanna know why anyone would think such a stupid thing?

WHY HENIN DESERVES HER RANKING:
Wimbeldon Finalist and SemiFinalist
Ausopen SemiFinalist
Roland Garros SemiFinalist


if that's not enough let's think about this:
Serena williams was beaten 5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5 time last year! only 5! And who can we attribute one of those wins to? Justine Henin! Henin has career wins against every current top 10 players, including venus, serena, capriati, seles, davenport, dokic and hantuchova


so why do some people still refuse to give her the credit she's due? someone please help me out here!

She may have a win over every player, but she does have one of the worst records against the current top 10. Only Dokic has a worse record against the top 10. I think she only has a 20-30 winning %.

Just stating facts, I think Henin-Hardenne does deserve to remain in the top 10.

lol, top 10? she should remain in top 5!
Just because she can't beat every player every time, doesn't mean she isn't capable of it, and as you can see, when the big time comes, when GS's roll around, she can always compete (disregard RG 2002 when she was sick)

henin-hardenne should definately be top 10 and at the moment she should be top 5. i would say davenport and mauresmo are the two players outside the top 5 that deserve it from how they are playing.

She does deserve her ranking, but that doesn't mean I think she's the fourth best player in the world. I don't. She's about #6 or #7, in my book. But I don't run a worlwide tennis tour.

Henin suffers from the comparison with her fellow belgian friend (Clijsters). Clearly she still plays a lower level compared to her but ... she deserves her ranking! As a matter of fact all players deserve their ranking! Even Dokic ... but while Henin will stay in the top10-5 this year, Dokic will not!

Justine definitely deserves her no 4 spot! She may be a bit mentally brittle but given time & more experience, she'll prove to everyone, even not fans of hers, that she's one of best's best.

You have to think how many times she plays the Williams, she reaches a lot of semis and finals. She can face top players more often than others. Besides, she doesn't have good draws.

oh come on...faking an injury. So has Linsday, besides who hasn't.
I remember Stevenson did the same thing at the generali open(final against Henin), I don't want to offend anybody but she was so obviously faking it...the lil devil :devil: :)

Do we KNOW she was fakin' it? And much as I like Linzi, she can play with other players heads @ times, too, but sometime on a thread about her... Anyway, I'm still a big Juju fan (wait, there are only little Juju fans! :p), but she cut it pretty damn close today (6-4, 7-6).
