With the currently incompetent womens clay court field, where even the great Williams sisters struggle (Serena is still decent I guess but not winning) does anyone else think Henin would have surpassed or atleast tied Evert's 7 French Open titles had she not retired. Personally I think yes, she would probably have even shattered it. She was already at 4, the last 2 French Opens showed nothing that could challenge her even at say 60%. So already up to 6 pretty much gauranteed. Really is there anything that is going to emerge on clay these next few years to stop her from having continued to be a total lock even in diminished form. I am thinking she would have ended up winning 8 or 9. By the way this doesnt mean I personally feel she would have been he greatest clay courter had she not retired. Evert would have won 10 French Opens had she even played the French from 1976-1978, and went on a 125 match win streak on clay which I am sure Henin would never have matched as she never even came close to that. Even if she won the French every year, and I am pretty sure she would have as I said, she would have still had some losses in some of the smaller clay events. While the mid to late 70s field on clay was just as much of a joke as the mid to late 2000s field Henin has dominated on clay, the clay court field of the 80s where Evert won 4 more of her Frenchs was much improved from the weak mid to late 70s and much stronger than todays. Then one could also consider Steffi Graf who won 6 French Opens but vs a much tougher clay court field than either Evert or Henin ever faced, or Seles who without the stabbing might have won 8 or more French Opens again vs a much tougher clay court field than either Evert or Henin faced. Connolly and Lenglen were virtually unbeatable on clay in their day for many years (well Maureen as many years as possible).
