You make it sound like Henin and Clijsters were dominating the field outside the Williams in 2001 and 2002, but if you believe that you apparently were in a coma. Their 2002 slam results for instance:
Australian Open- Henin loses to Clijsters in quarters, wins only 5 games, Clijsters loses 6-1 in final set to Capriati in semis.
French Open- Henin loses 1st round to some player I cant even remember, Clijsters 3rd round to Clarissa Fernandez.
Wimbledon- Henin loses semis to Venus, Clijsters loses 2nd round to an old Likhovtseva
U.S Open- Henin lost round of 16 to Hantuchova, Clijsters loses round of 16 to Mauresmo.
