Well without a doubt Justine Henin Hardenne is the BEST player on the WTA tour after Serena Williams. On talent alone and fighting spirit the real battle should be between Justine and Serena alone.

Also, I wonder if Justine will be thinking she should of won six slams instead of five. I wonder if she still thinks about that Australian Open final. Look how badly Mauresmo choked against Viadasova. I am starting to wonder if Justine just hanged around a bit more maybe Mauresmo would of choked.

Well done Justine the REAL no.1 on the WTA tour.
Does anyone know if Justine is playing Eastboune this year? I feel Justine is the real no.1 and NOT Mauresmo.

Justine is playing Eastbourne along with Mauresmo, Clijisters, Petrova, Kuznetsova and Vaidisova...

I agree...I hail the return of Serena for a period of great rivalry when we can enjoy some spectacular matches!

If she can stay healthy for the rest of the year she has every chance of getting back to #1 - she only has about 400(ish) points to defend in the latter half of the year. She should go to the top of the race rankings at least after this.

She isn't teh real no.1. Do you quickly forget the kind of Clijsters showed on the american hardcourts last year?

As far as I was concerned Henin was always going to win RG, just par for the course. On grass she won't do anything, regardless of her final appearance and on hardcourts she is behind Clijsters I think.

Justine's up to number 3 due to this win :-)

And Sveta's run to the final means that she is now the world no.6.

Yes but remember Henin also made the Australian Open final. She basically gift wrapped that title to Mauresmo. If Justine was 75% capacity I believe she would of beaten Mauresmo.

Lets not go into the AO Final again.

But yes if Serena returned and with Justine back at the top and Venus on her way there we could see a real three way rivalry going on if they all got back to their best. We never quite got to a real rivalry between Justine and the Williams just a little in 2003 so it would be interesting to see what happens :)

Of course Justine can do well at Wimbledon. Are you forgetting that she reached the final in 2001 and also is a two time semifinalst in 2002 and 2003. People are making too much a big deal about Justine losing in the first round last year. It happens in my mind it was a blip. Everyone had better watch out. Justine is taking Wimbledon very seriously she is going to play Eastbourne it seems to me she learned from last year's mistake. Also remember last year it was Justine's FIRST grass court match in two years. So she was just OFF in that match. She is being wise here to try to get some matches in.

Yeah i'd love to see Justine vs Venus at Wimbledon, the current French and Wimbledon champions. I'd have to favour venus on that occasion...

how come she goes to no3? wasn't she just defending her points? these rankings are confusing me sometimes!

PS the reason amelie is the no1 is because of her amazing run during nov- feb not her current perfomance which has not been impressive. this doesn't mean that she is an undeserving no1 only a weak one in an ultra competitive top10. people where saying the same thing about shaza last year, that she only got it because davenport was injured but they forget how consistent she was- and still is- up to that point. lindsey also was critisized because she didn't have a slam. anyone who gets to the no1 position deserves it whether one likes the player or not. so give credit where it's due.

Yes, I say have Serena come back in top form again. I'm glad Hingis and Venus are back and hopefully would get back to the top of their games again.

Quite a dull final in my opinion - pretty much like the last two years. What do we need to get a decent French womens' final? Although Justine couldn't have dreamt of a better player to face in the final, credit to Justine though for retaining her title.

Don't worry; Serena will be back at her best when she comes back; she's too proud not to be. She hates losing and she thinks that a 3rd round exit at a Grand Slam is failure for her. She thinks that because she has such high standards. Personally, I think the last year or so could be a blessing in disguise. She's had a blip and now knows what she needs to do to get back to the top.

What can we do to make Serena come back? Maybe have her start dating James Blake. She could get pointers from him on how to make a successful come back. <grin>

JHH is intelligent and of course knows Mauresmo's unfortunate tendency to choke on the big occasion. Had she felt able to continue in the AO final she would certainly have done so.

ye i thought losing to Jill Craybas would get her fired up <yikes> But no then she went and lost to Daniela Hantuchova <doh>

Hopefully she'll have learned her lessons. nad her injuries have been really impeding too. But she seems to be on the mend and is looking in better shape these days. With Justine catching up to he total tally of Slams and Venus with a good chance of getting number 6 you'd think she'd ahve the pride to come back and get ahead again.
