    He says that they play the same regardless of score (ie 5-0 down or up or etc).

    I disagree. Nadal plays very smart game and takes his chances when they are there.

    Any comments?

    No completly disagree. Henin's mental game is crap.

    No way... Henin is probably the player on tour who has proven to be mentally fit when she's down... Remember all the comeback's she's made???

    You just don't become #1 in the world with a crappy mental game!!!

    When I think of someone mentally strong, I would never pick Henin.

    No way. She has to be one of the least mentally tough players on tour. She can crack at anytime for no apparent reason. Yes, she is a great player but there is now way she is even close in terms of being mentally tough as Nadal.

    I don't think Nadal would retire from a Slam final if there was any way he could play on. I wish I could say the same about Justine.

    i think there is a difference between mental toughness and the will to win!
    Justine is mentally tough
    I would say Serena has the biggest will to win
