All the top players need to run out and hire Pat Etcheberry to train them.

I agree, but I don't think they would all be able to do so (injuries).

And with the exception of Clijsters and Anna Kournikova, I don't want the top players to reach Henin's level, or higher. Not that Henin's level is the highest.

or they could not make so many errors...Henin does nothing but run balls down.

until they significantly improve, the rest of the tour is SOL. Justine is not my favorite but she is an amazing tennis player. After all, how often do you see a pro player improve their service power, percentage, placement, and lower double faults in a year?! Most players sacrifice one for another. Amazing.

No. She doesn't serve harder than she used to, or better than she used to in general, actually. She's always had an excellent serve.

Minus the service power, I would say Venus Williams from 99 to 2000

They the Williams don't have to improve (when at their best). Thank God Justine finally got a game plan to keep hope alive in the tour. Otherwise this year would have been a massacar.

Actually, it will be a massacar minus the French Open.

"Massacre". Thanks for coming out.

Justine did actually improve on her serve a lot. And she struggled at first after making the change around early 2002 I think...she got drilled by Hantuchova at Indian Wells

It worked out for her in the long run though.
