    ... when she hangs up her racket in some years?

    It seems so with her winning her 5th slam crown in a few hours from now.
    Serena has won 6 and Venus 5 slams since 2000 but both sisters most probably won't win another slam again. Henin could have 10 slam wins by the year 2008 easily. If she stays somewhat injury-free she even could surpass BJK (12 slams)!

    Talent-wise she definitely is the greatest since Graf.

    No, she will not be the greatest. Excellent, but not the greatest.

    What I admire is that she is only 5'5".

    Hilarious Joe Pike. Talent-wise Graf was not the greatest. But JHH is naturally more talented than Graf.

    a great player, especially on clay, but i think a 100% sharapova or clisjters beats her most of the time, except on clay.

    Yah given we have about 94 years left in the 21s century I am very confident that JHH will not be considered that greatest of the 21st century. I do love her game though :)

    She is already the greatest. And not in 21-st, but in the history. IMO. Of course, still not by number of GS but by tennis.

    She just took it overboard tonight. That's what she's known for, so what can I say.

    After watching her post-game press conference and listening to Chris Fowler's and Brad Gilbert's comments regarding other JHH incidents, I say no.

    What I dont understand about the whole thing is that nearly everyone hailed her as the patron saint of women's tennis. After one very well broadcasted incident, the whole world is against her. Isnt a dog allowed one free bite?

    Well none of us knows how sick she really was and JHH has showed tremendous fighting spirit in past matches.

    I have to admit after watching the match it didn't do anything to improve her image.
