well henin's 2003 was wayyyy better than hingis' 98/99 .....and her 2006 was also better than hingis' 98/99 ......

the fact that you even begin to argue hingis was best player in 98/99 but henin wasn't in 2003/2006 (not that I agree with that ) just goes to show that henin faced better competition by some distance in 2003/06 than hingis in 98/99 ....

and I don't follow the WTA as much as the ATP tour, but a bit of common sense helps in either case .....

also don't forget that henin had 5 years where she won slams, hingis only 3 ...
