Top Ranked Roger Federer Versus Ace Justine Henin
By Anton Lagani, Lawn Tennis Correspondent, Posted: Saturday, November 24, 2007 5:30am CST USA
No, ATP Tour world number one Roger Federer of Switzerland has
not signed on to play WTA Tour world number one Justine Henin of Belgium, but they both took home multiple grand slam titles and then ended this
year with a bang by winning their tours' year end championships. We here take a look back at both players.
One major difference between the two
players is Federer enjoys success on grass and Henin does not; while Henin won the 2007 French Open which Federer has never won.
