How much do you miss Henin, Hingis and Kournikova?

I miss them so much. Imagine if they were still in every draw. Along with Lindsay, Mary, Monica and Jennifer (although they might be too old by now). And Maria and Jelena D in top shape. The Slams would still be so exciting.

Re: How much do you miss Henin, Hingis and Kournikova?

Hingis and Henin were unique in that they could make me root for Serena.

Kournikova was certainly the second-best looking blonde Russian tennis player ever.

Re: How much do you miss Henin, Hingis and Kournikova?

Henin - yes , women's tennis became kind of dire after she left , although she wasn't playing that well at the time of her retirement so the current state may have been inevitable.

Hingis - not so much.

Kournikova - she was at her prime before I properly watched tennis so can't comment.

Re: How much do you miss Henin, Hingis and Kournikova?

I did not vote.
Couldn't you just keep straing by listing their name, with values judgment.

Why did you have to include all those options that invite their detractors to stick it to them?

I won't even touch the Anna comment, I value my teeth.

FYI - I only miss 2 out of 3 (Chucky and her doubles partner, of course)

Pierce isn't retired yet
She'll win all four slams in 2010, 2015, and 2020. Just wait for it.

Re: How much do you miss Henin, Hingis and Kournikova?

The loss of Anna meant there were no real celebrity player except WS.

I thought Golovin might have the personality to fill Anna's shoes but she doesn't play anymore

The Hingis vs Kournikova match above is great, the actually approach the net so mant great exciting shots the whole way through. It is such a same pushers and ball bashers have titles and Kournikova doesn't when she is a much more rounded player.

Re: How much do you miss Henin, Hingis and Kournikova?

Yes to Henin and Hingis. Kournikova I really couldn't care less about... Random thought but though she is friends with Serena, Serena certainly can't give her the T-shirt with "Are you looking at my titles?" on it.
