hingis had nothing of that. she had a great eye, good hands and great tactical understanding but she was not explosive or powerful at all. she was a great tennis talent but a mediocre athlete.
I agree Henin was more of a power oriented player than Hingis and had alot more power than Hingis, but I dont see any special attribute she possessed that stands out in tennis history. To me she is a combination of a poor womens Williams (speed, power, strength, but less than they have), and a poor womens Hingis (touch, versatility, course sense, timing, genuis, but less than she has).
