As you see, Womens Tennis these days struggles to find a new Roger Federer since the retirement of the three consecutive times Roland Garros Champion (2005-2007), Justine Henin. Maria Sharapova and Ana Ivanovic replaced Henin’s spot but these two ladies consistently on the downward spiral since the 2008 Australian Open and Roland Garros. Jelena Jankovic came very strong while she’s on top, winning three consecutive tournaments in a row. After the 2009 Australian Open, however, Jankovic fell down to Serena Williams. Serena stayed at the number one for some weeks but step a notch down during the clay season. Serena reached the quarterfinals of Roland Garros, won Wimbledon and into the last four of US Open but these things mean nothing when it comes to consistency. Until now (September 23, 2009), Dinara Safina remains the number one seed in the world although she has not won a Grand Slam yet.
But don’t worry, the former world number one, Justine Henin, will be back. Turned pro in 1999, Henin won Roland Garros, US Open, Australian Open, 2004 Olympics Games and a finalist in Wimbledon 2001 and 2006.
It’s amazing Henin is back. Womens Tennis needs someone who can consistently be on top and who knows, with Kim Clijsters on board and won the US Open just weeks ago, the race to number one will be a tight battle between these two Belgians.
How I wish the number three spot goes for Ana Ivanovic. Just a wish, folks!
