It was a real shock when Justin Henin retired.She was one of the finest players in the history of tennis.After she retired the No.1 spot has changed many hands in a very short period of time.Now who do you think has the talent and potential to hold on to the top spot for an appreciable period of time?Who do you think has the capability to produce tennis of Henin's level?I feel the now No.1 Jelena Jankovic is good but of course not as good as Henin.What do you people feel?

dont think she can be replaced for me she was the roger federrer of women's tennis full of grace and elegence. women's tennis has really got boring now you never know who is on top every month or two weeks there is a new number also the quality of matches is also not there. william sisters and sharapova are too inconsistent. ivanovic is one player i feel and retain the top spot for long if she plays to her potential.

Justine may have gone, but tennis will survive. We can simply say, "Thanks Justine.." and proceed with business. If you look at the various sports calendars, you will find that most professional sports have an off-season where the players have the luxury of having one or two months of extended vacation to rest their minds and bodies and also to heal on their ailments. Not so with tennis. Even if the tour has two or three weeks of inactivity, exhibition games are aplenty. Many players eagerly grab this chance because this means extra pay for fun tennis. The rigors of tennis have, time and again, ruined the promise of stardom of many, and thereby derailing these talents into oblivion. Only the very fit suvive to play for many years.
