Very true. It wasn't Henin who won that 2nd set. It was the rain

Re: Peak Henin vs peak Venus

Venus on grass. Justine on clay.

It's the hardcourts that are dicey. On paper, I'd give rebound ace/slow Aussie hardcourts to Justine. Easier for her to track balls down and works with her spin. Also, I'd give US Open/fast hardcourts to Venus as it plays into her peak serve and volley.

That said, on hardcourts period, it's REALLY close. It's a pity we never really got the peak v. peak match between these two. We got close, but not close enough.

This is also true. Particularly on grass. I remember after her defeat by Marion Bartoli at Wimbledon in 2007, she said the reason she lost was because she knew she wouldn't be able to beat Venus in the finals. Or something along those lines.

Re: Peak Henin vs peak Venus

I thought peak threads had gone out of fashion? Anyway, it is about your idea of peak vs mine, and you don't wanna know how badly my idea of peak Juju would brutalize every player that every played . But of course, with all the posts here, we are gifted gloriously over-the-top visions of these acid trips involving Venus anyway

Eh, peak clay-court Venus would be lucky to win a set against peak clay-court Henin.

Re: Peak Henin vs peak Venus

Peak Venus wins on all except Clay. Peak Venus is better than Peak Henin. That damn Serena messed it up for Venus, because it would be Venus with over 10 Grand Slams.
