Every Monday we will share some key insights from the top players past and present.
This week, be fearless like Henin. Justine Henin is now retired but she was one of the most talented players of all time. Henin was the winner of 7 grand slam titles and was number 1 in the world for 117 weeks.
Henin was known for her aggressive all court game, her incredible one handed backhand and her mental toughness. She won her matches by out playing, out hitting and out thinking her opponents.
Henin's game was beautifully fluid and at the same time, very aggressive. John McEnroe would often call her the female version of Roger Federer. Henin was undoubtedly one of the most complete tennis players to have ever played the sport.
Although Henin was very talented much of her success came as a direct result of her mental toughness. Henin won her many titles because she "feared no one" and it showed in her game. We all have much to gain by following Henin's fearless example.
